To be fair, that wasn't the venues fault. They didn't make you wear unsuitable attire and spill a pint down yourself

Yeah, Astoria 2007 was awesome; it took me well into the first verse of Stay Beautiful to realise what it was!

I've got a video of one of the 94 gigs - crappy quality but you can tell how awesome the gig is.

Yep 07 tour saw them there was really good, I also saw BRMC and The Bravery there, might have been a smelly dive, but it was still a good music venue!

That 94 Yes vid is ace

I have to support that, the Barrowland's gig is the only one of the tour I can listen to nowadays out of it's pure brilliance and furosity of Jimmy.

Not sure about there, but I'd say Wolves is up there!

Wasn't it always said that only two of the gigs do exist on video? I just checked MSPpedia but that didn't help because it says:
19.12.1994: an audio bootleg exists
20.12.1994: an audio and a video bootleg exist
21.12.1994: ---
(in S&V there are audios of all three concerts)

I do have a video with two of the gigs, stated on the cover as 19.&20.12.1994, but because I haven't watched it recently, I can't really say if that's correct.

But anyway, the Manics at the Astoria always felt special to me
R.I.P. - bye bye, Astoria!
