  1. Look live Live at Leeds a couple of days after Slam Dunk North is selling woefully - they’ve announced additional tickets for £5 if you buy/have already bought one.
  2. Can’t say I was paying much attention, we were sat at the back supping. I just remember there being a shit load of gimmicky backing dancers.
  3. There’s definitely much more than just music to sets at R&L now compared to the old days with the backing dancers, outfit changes, visual effects etc, it’s great if you’re into that kind of thing - Mabel did the same last year from memory. Speaking as someone who enjoys gigs for the authenticity of live instruments and raw vocals the effects don’t do much for me. She’ll have improved since as you say but if I booked an act to play and they didn’t do their main vocals live I’d be fuming.
  4. No slots left for her really. Forgot to put this in the worst acts thread but she has to be up there purely for most of her singing being a backing track.
  5. I did actually see a lad wearing a Sunderland home shirt right by the back steps of the standing area and wondered if it was you. Glad the perfect weekend came together for you. Felt like every other car had a Sunderland scarf or shirt on the M1 back north today
  6. Fantastic gig last night and we’ll worth the wait. Couldn’t have asked for a much better set list, sound was patchy and the crowd was dead though as previously mentioned by others. For anyone going today, if you want merch or ale, get down early or you’ll be queuing literally hours, took me most of Placebo to get served. The walk to and from the bowl was well signposted though. No metal detectors, dogs or pat downs on gate one. And finally to the Sunderland fan on here last week, hope you had a fucking good day
  7. On the way back to the park and stride we we saw a blue forensics tent beyond the police tape, not sure I’m afraid
  8. I’ve got capri suns, scissors and tape but hair straighteners should work equally well
  9. Does anyone know if the merch stands take cash and/or card? Cheers!
  10. Wish I had some upvotes left, your commitment to free booze is excellent 🤣
  11. Stupid question alert - do capri suns get picked up by the metal detectors on the gates? Only ask because I once defrosted one in the microwave and it lit up like a Christmas tree
  12. Could change again but this looks more compete now: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/my-chemical-romance/2022/stadium-mk-milton-keynes-england-23b718ef.html
  13. Anyone going tonight know if the bars are just pints or if they sell bottles of wine?
  14. That’s me not getting in then, was on the fence about whether to bother so that’s the decision out of my hands!
  15. If the videos so far are anything to go by the golden circle atmosphere will be dead for these gigs
  16. Looks like there is but you can potentially walk around into it like most festivals
  17. Yeah they’re surely have a digital backdrop at MK, hoping for something special for these like a different setlist, staging etc
  18. Can only really answer on the bus - If it’s the same place as for Slam Dunk it’ll be from Sovereign St by Leeds station.
  19. From memory there were a couple in 2019 but nothing big, The Amazon’s officially played the tent but also the Introducing stage as a secret set
  20. There’s no doubting TBHC was a sonically fantastic album, so interesting to listen to on the record but it probably won’t work headlining a festival like R&L in my opinion. Even Sheffield Arena of all places went dead quiet during the TBHC songs on the September 2018 tour but it was understandably bouncing for the older stuff. The band have evolved as has been said but the live crowds haven’t in the main.
  21. I thought that too, it’s Avril Lavinge’s clone all over again
  22. *More spoilers* No Planetary (Go) is a bummer, but I’ll absolutely take This is How I Disappear. Agree about the closer, you’d surely play Kids from Yesterday as the penultimate song and then finish on Famous Last Words/Black Parade. Foundations of Decay seems and odd opener too to me, but that’s just me!
  23. If anyone’s going before Saturday please would you mind getting a picture of the merch stand? Cheers!
