George Ezra didn’t really have any redeeming features for me. His story telling was as dull as his music. We were on the Level 1 balcony at the side near the stage and everyone around me was loving him though. I felt like I was at a kids’ birthday party

Blossoms weren’t as bad as George, although I got bored of them after a couple of songs and the rest sounded a bit samey.

I enjoyed what there was of the Manics (if Ezra hadn’t waffled on so much between songs, they might have got a bit longer!), but it was very short. I can’t say I was expecting any surprises in the setlist though. They’ve already mentioned the possibility of Truth gigs next year, so don’t see why they wouldn’t save anything Truth related for that.

Oh well though...this gig was always going to be like this and hey, at least the tickets were cheap. Although with the amount of reserved seats on the balcony levels for guest listed people, there can’t have been a huge amount of tickets for sale in the first place. That was a bit annoying being told you couldn’t sit in any of the side seats nearer the stage. We just stood behind the seats and got a good view like, but still. Spotted Milton Jones sat in one of said reserved seats too, which was a bit random (well we weren’t sure if it was definitely him or just a good lookalike, but other sightings of him confirmed it was him ).

Just written up my thoughts on this gig on my blog here. Erm, maybe don't read it if you're a George Ezra fan!

Oooh, and I'm finally in a live manics video. Only took 50/60 gigs to get there.

Thanks Gutless Wonder, any little cheering up is a massive boost and step forward. I just watched it, and enjoyed it, it was a good short gig, and loved Hold Me Like A Heaven s much, although I always think James seems to struggle to get the sound right for the guitar solo on a few times I've watched live versions. The Isle of Wight video sounded like he played a wrong note or something.
Anyway, great stuff, glad there's another nicely filmed Manics concert to watch and enjoy

Sorry to hear that. Repeated viewings might help a bit

Thanks gutless. Tis just work stuff getting on my tits. Not had the chance to watch yet. So glad I didn't go now.. I'd hate to see myself on the tellybox !
Have to be honest though, the most i regret is missing out on Kylie and Jason singing "especially for you" at Hyde park.

I don't actually think Kylie let Jason do too much singing...! He tried though, the poor guy.
