Anyone know the stage times please? Thanks.
acording to my ticket so I guess around 9 for MF?
I'm very very excited.
Is there a show tonight then as well?
I'm there tomorrow, and could not be any more excited. Who is supporting by the way?
Tonight is the first of 3 nights.
there was just the two when i ordered my tickets.
Why? Why? Why am I not going?
I'm probably going to regret this for like the next 3 years. Or possibly forever if he decides to sack in touring after this - always a distinct possibility.
both from the venue & scarletmist
there was really cheap tickets on Ebay the other day, my friend got 2 for a tenner
can't wait. ok, I'll stop. The venue looks pretty unique, has anyone been there before?
grumpiness over their flight issues aside I thought that was bloomin' wonderful.
Papa was a rodeo = swooooooon
i'm off tonight
They came on about 8:50 - did 45 mins then had an interval then played for another 45. Good mix of material, the Distortion stuff sounded much different as it just banjo, cello and piano. It wa SO good though. I want to go again.
and about 3 from 'I' - they even did a couple from 'Get Lost'
in the gallery, the view was a little restricted, just to forewarn. However, the performance was beautiful - didn't expect entirely acoustic set, but it worked well on newer material too. Top stuff.
i need to get some tickets :(
right of stage, block C, I think. It was just that Mr Merritt, celloist, guitarist were kinda beneath us. So, other side, or towards back of hall would be better!
Got home and grabbed a ticket for Friday.
The sound in the venue is just so clear - and their voices, Stephin, Shirley and Claudia, all sounded absolutely perfect.
As well as MF stuff, they also did a 6ths track, a Future Bible Heroes song, and a couple off the Gothic Archies album about the Series of Unfortunate Events books.
Papa was a Rodeo the absolute highlight, for me.
God, I wish I was going. Why aren't I going? They're my favourite band! Maybe I can still go?
No, I can't. BALLS.
I saw them 4 years ago at the RFH, Papa was a Rodeo was absolutely incredible then too.
I would recommend that you go.
Too far away.
They're the main ones.
I suppose I could go if I left NOW, and skipped the train fare by hiding in the toilets, and then slept in the train station after...
They were really great. If I had the cash, I'd go again tomorrow. So want to be Stephen Merritt when I grow up.
