Manics gig blogs

Hi all! I hope you will forgive me for a bit of shameless blog promotion I'm blogging about all the gigs I've ever been to, and there's going to be a lot of Manics posts, so I thought I'd make a thread where I could update you when there's a new one. Also if others have Manics-related blog posts, gig reviews etc, please share as i'd love to read them!

I've just written about Reading '97, which was bloody amazing, of course. Here's a link! And you can read all my Manics-tagged posts here. Would love to hear memories from others who've been to the same gigs as me!

I've just put up a post about the Manics' first night at Wembley in December 1998, featuring much glee at the skipping prowess of Nicky Have a look!

My post about the second night at Wembley will be live next Weds

Second night at Wembley now up here! Thanks FD for retweeting it

Manics at V99 should be up in eight weeks, then Manic Millennium in twelve weeks...

Thanks for doing this - wish I'd kept notes like you had on the gigs I've been to. There haven't been any yet that I was also at, but having worn out my taped recording off the radio of the Nynex gig it's fascinating to hear what the whole day was like.

Thank you LA ex! I am very grateful for my incurable need to write things down! As I got older I started to write less and less about the gigs I went to, as I became more interested things other than music for a bit, and it's amazing just how much you forget. My blog posts for gigs between about 2004 and 2015 will probably be quite short because of that, but at least I've got a while yet before I get there!
