What's the moshpit level at these gigs now? Have we reached the creaky boned moment of Mosh Zero?

I don't know what this UK tour is like. At Hamburg, last month: Mosh -50. There was some polite shuffling and and such during YSTS. While UK crowds tend to be livelier, I swear I have never seen anyone mosh at a Manics gig in recent years - or maybe where I come from we mosh differently? I saw more moshing at Sophia last Monday, in fact, and Robin Propper-Shepard attracts a proper bunch of middle-aged miserable misfits (such as my good self).

Yeah there was a small but decent pit for The Holy Bible part of the show last year. I know that obviously by now that shit would be fairly chilled. Europe is a bit odd I find. Crowds are kinda "polite" as they say. Just seen a small clip of Kevin Carter, and while the crowd is into it I detect a 0 mosh zone.

There's a couple of my mates who prefer it like that to be fair!

Jumping for a couple of songs, no moshing i'd guess.

This gig seems forever ago already. The RAH gigs (particularly the second night) beat this one and Brum for me, but I did still enjoy it. I'd never been to the arena before, but the staff were brilliant with the early queuers and it was very organised getting in, so I would definitely go again.

Think my favourite part of the gig was when James was doing his "Manics bingo" in the acoustic section and he pointed at MSPKYE next to me on the barrier and asked him to pick a song, so he shouted 1985 and we got a few chords of it, but then James said he couldn't remember the words

A few photos (mostly of James, because I'm that way inclined):
