£36 all in, so not shy. But still worth the money!
shift last night and so missed the pre-sale. I don't expect much chance of a ticket with general sale. Have a great time. They were excellent last Friday.
Have a clash, just thought I'd give the board a heads up.
Tough choice but I'm likely to go to Suede at such a small venue. Sebadoh were great at The Electric Ballroom a few years ago.
so not going to this, but wow, even back in the day I never saw them in a venue that small. Should be great.
I was on was refreshing from about five minutes before they went on sale though.
Also selling them on Seetickets for those interested. Limited to two tickets per transaction.
Having broken my toes I can no longer make the gig on Weds so is anyone looking for a ticket for what I paid - £35 including fees? If so please PM me.
Doors at 6.30. Button down djs after. Think it will be an early one.
at 7:30pm, a support band called Graveltones on at 8:15pm with Suede on at 9:15pm.
Doors were originally at 7pm and now have changed to 6:30pm so I'm not sure if everything that the person posted moves forward an hour. Hopefully, The Garage will update their website for stage times later.
That's just completely mental.
Brett seemed to be a bit miffed initially that the crowd weren't more raucous, but both he (and the crowd) seemed to get more into it as things went on. The stuff from Dog Man Star seemed to the get the biggest cheers, quite rightly!
Only very minor negatives were that the Garage was, as it always is, hotter than the sun, and the one song encore was a bit of a crap choice and didn't really add anything.
Not complaining though, I thought it was great!
into metal mickey was electrifying. the whole place went off like a fucked rocket. watched from the back due to my elderliness and it was a really beautiful moment seeing bert all drenched in sweat looking barely a day older than when i first clapped eyes on him all them years ago, fans reaching out to him, the band slamming out classics... wonderful set.
An excellent set too. Daddy's Speeding, Heroine and Hollywood Life weren't obvious songs to play from Dog Man Star but very welcome.
The fan on stage broke near the start, and Brett must have lots a couple of pounds by the end of the night, he was drenched by the end. Also caught the end of the support - strange choice as they were completely different from Suede.
twatting the roadie with his twirling mic was very funny.
i could be referring to? i always thought it was just a perfectly incongruous pet-name for him.
daddy's speeding, painted people (yay!), another no one, flashboy.. amazing. wish i'd been there.
Painted People apparently.
Played the whole of Bloodsports in order, took a 5 min break then came back and belted out the first 10 singles from The Drowners to Beautiful Ones, also in order.
The setlists will no doubt be different each night of the tour, but anyone seeing them is in for a treat as they're on top form.
considering the weather in Southampton on Tuesday night.
I've only listened to Bloodsports a couple of times and seeing them next week in Manc. Will be disappointed if it carries on in a similar vein cos I found Bloodsports a bit dull.
Pay £30 (£60 if you count that fact that I've paid for the Mrs' ticket) to turn up late, stand right at the back and watch 10 songs worth of fried-gold with no obvious breaks to allow trips to the bar. I'd rather they just mixed it all up or, y'know, didn't play ALL of the new album.
The next nine songs: less so.
of humour there.
last night! The Big Time and The 2 Of Us were the 'random song choices' of the evening. Purr.
Brilliant gig. Brett really throws himself at it but was also able to have a good laugh at himself, which I don't always remember being the case. Possibly my gig of the year so far. I liked the new stuff but those first album singles still sound incredible, and they played them all.
