Just seeing the thread up here got me all excited now. This is my first one of the tour and I cannot wait! Been spray painting my t-shirt today. 'Condemned To Rock 'N' Roll' on the front and 'I'm a slut and you just suck' on the back.

I hope the setlist is similar to the one tonight. Except including Sleepflower. And keeping Tsunami, it looks like it could be amazing live.

Also many thanks to Helen in advance for the lift

This one should hopefully be brutal, looking forward to some action!

Sooo excited!

This will be my only gig for this tour, wish I could go to more gigs (like I did on the SATT tour - double Brixton!) but time and money won't allow it (it's a bit of a project when you're travelling from abroad).

This will be my first and possibly only gig of the tour after selling my tickets to other dates based on poor album and dull setlists.

I might still go to Bristol if I enjoy Saturday and don't go and see BSP at the Globe in Cardiff.

Newport centre is a crappy venue to see a band in many respects, but I do like the unreserved seating so you can go and have a sit down. Shame you can't take any drinks into the actual hall from the bar.

Magali and I are off to Wales tomorrow to start the tour in Newport. Can't wait to see you all there and finally get a part of the fun!
Say hi if you see us, I'll have my sailor hat on.

Really gutted I can't go to this one I saw them in Newport a couple of years ago and they were on top form - possibly because they were on home territory and there is something special about seeing the Manic's play in Wales. I liked the venue too because of the whole unreserved seating thing and the fact that even in the seats your so near the stage. If I remember rightly the sounds not brilliant in there but that's just me trying to find a positive to not being able to go. Enjoy everyone who is lucky enough to be going

This'll be my first Newport gig, although I have seen them in Cardiff and Swansea before now.

I'm so glad I bought a ticket, it's really given me something to look forward to over the last week, and I'm going to have a great time

I'm going. Been up and down if we can get there but apparently it's now a definite YES.

Very excited, never seen them in Wales before.
