There it is.

Absolutely the right time for a choice quote from nye bevan.

I wonder what the percentage are of fans there are to just attendees.

It will be 22 songs I bet, I can't see it being more.

Mind if i ask which twitter account these images are coming from?

Edit: What typo?! I clearly have a reading failure. Me fail english? That's unpossible!

None in particular, just the latest tweets with the word "manics" in them.

Only tracks I'm certain of so far are The Secret He Had Missed, Your Love Alone is Not Enough and Little Baby Nothing. Interestingly YLAINE doesn't appear to have female vocals unlike the other two, which have Cat Southall (as featured at the St David's Hall gig):





Edit: fb photo shows a lyric from Don't Let The Night Divide Us (not THAT one...), a tweet mentions they opened with Motorcycle Emptiness (shock horror)

Looking forward to tomorrow! Haven’t seen them since 2017 (!) and fell out of love with them pretty hard but they always bring me back…

Okay, first off, sorry about the 2 hour 15 mins thing, the guy obviously just thought the band would play to curfew. We got 1 and a half hours, not bad at all!

We got FDTW acoustic, then Canít Take My Eyes Off You. Then Sweet Child which was EPIC!

Not sure whatís different from recent setlists but others I wasnít expecting were Ocean Spray, EMG, Tsunami.

Cat Southall has overtaken both Kylie and the Anchoress as my fave LBN duetter.

I think there were a lot of casual fans tonight as the tickets were free of course, and so it took a little while to ignite, but when it did, WOW. Up there with the best.

They are on incredible form, James especially. He was a sheer joy to watch.

Oh, and almost no one in the crowd wore a mask, and staff didn’t enforce it. Hooray.

Let Robeson Sing was back, I know some dislike it but I was happy. The little touches of KYE are taking me back to those amazing gigs of 2001.

I think this is the most I’ve been in love with the band since 1996!
