    Attempting a ranking then; 1 Empress Ballroom, Blackpool (2013) as The Reflektors 2 Castlefield Bowl (2017) 3 Leeds Festival (2005 I think) 4 Manchester Arena (2018) 5 Glastonbury (2014) 6 Hyde Park (2011) 7 Manchester Arena (2011) 8 Leeds Festival (2010) 9 Leeds Festival (2007) 5-8 could vary on my thinking that day, 9th is a time I can barely remember which is a pity as I was massively looking forward to them. Probably not helped by the red hot chili peppers being on after them and being absolutely terrible.

    Fantastic gig last night, got in to see the end of the support act as well so that was good. The stage set up for them being in the round was fantastic, loved the light and all the smoke at the end of the main set (thought something had broke). Think the ticket price certainly effected the attendance. Wish they'd play Liverpool in the future instead. Not sure where I'd rank the gig against the other times I've seen them but it would be in the top 9.

    Never knew that about Haiti. Think I'd have to agree on Tunnels, an absolutely sublime song
  4. One month on...

    I'd just like the t shirts I ordered to turn up, has anyone gotten them yet? Hopefully I'll be back in 2019 after such a great festival this year, just planning loads of little holidays for 2018 though.

    Had to pick my vinyl up from the post office this morning. We don't deserve love is a fantastic track!

    Was able to get my ticket for Manchester this morning!
  7. Arcade Fire

    No luck, no tickets available from 9.01a.m. when I tried for standing tickets in Manchester

    Was hoping for a Liverpool date, so Manchester it'll have to be. Half considering Dublin instead though and having a bit of a break.

    I'd applied but having seen that now I don't fancy travelling from Liverpool and spending money on a train and hotel only not to get in if I'm successful.

    Yeah, says if you pre-order you get 'first access to future UK live dates'

    I was to the right of the stage and people were constantly trying to move through the crowd. Everyone around me was up for the gig though, felt like one big party. Ordered the album today, went for the 'night' version. Supposed to get a presale for their next UK tour as well.

    Amazing stuff! Finishing with Neon Bible and then singing love will tear us apart as they went back stage.
  13. Arcade Fire

    Home from work and heading to Manchester in about an hour, got tomorrow booked off as well.
  14. Arcade Fire

    Can't wait for tomorrow (well today now)! Hoping the atmosphere from these smaller shows can translate to about 8000 people.
  15. Weather 2017

    Probably the best 5 days of festival weather I've ever been lucky enough to enjoy (Leeds Festival 2007 probably 2nd, don't remember any rain that weekend)
