I was but FWIW, I cancelled my tickets this morning and TM refunded in full, bar about 4 quid this afternoon...

...and yes! Let's get it done soon! 

Ah that's interesting to know... I've got some for every Manchester date but people dropping out.

Book(s) and pint(s) sound a plan! I'll drop you a message soon.

Thought they were cracking last night. Easy (ish?) to forget just how good a live act they are.

Setlist was light on Ultra Mono which was something of a relief. Quite a bit of the new album - most notably MTT 420 RR -  sounds really good live. 

Fully expect they'll be at Glasto and I'll be there barring any nightmare clashes.

Looking forward to later. What time did they finish last night? Gonna be a tight one with the trains and I want to be able to stay til the end! 

So they were on at 9.30pm and finished bang-on 11pm. Had to cut Rottweiler from the set as they ran out of time but we did get The End for the first time which was nice.

Not sure who's supporting the rest of the Brixton dates but Wet Leg were on at 8.30, with the first support act at 7.40. Both got about 30 mins each.

Actually just been listening to Crawler and watching them on YouTube doing the KEXP set. I'll be there at G hopefully again baring no insane clashes. But the question is where? With now four banging albums they will headline,  i reckon on the Other stage.

Cheers! Looking forward to tonight when it is, somewhat bizarrely, Self Esteem in the main support slot.

They finished past 11pm even after cutting out a track, we started to leave a few mins after 11pm as for some reason the last train back to Colchester was at midnight rather than twenty past.

I've got tixs to night too. I know Self Esteem isn't the most obvious support act but I'd probably say tonight is the best night for support acts as Witch Fever are opening and are pretty good too even if people are going crazy for Wet Leg at the moment.

Amazing, thank you very much!

The new songs sound awesome live, really adds a new dimension to their sound. MTT 420 RR, Progress and Car Crash were particular highlights.

Show was busy last night (maybe 90-95% capacity but noticeably not full) but found it surprisingly quick to get in and get to the bar, which is always a bonus.

I'd mark them down as JP headliners, especially with the new light show working best in a dark setting (this tour should come with a epilepsy warning).

Thanks for the info. And yep JP headliners sounds right to me. Or maybe subbing Other - I don't see them headlining it yet.

If there’s anyone in London who wants a free tix for tonight PM me. It’s an old skool paper tix and I’m heading in at 7pm to see the support acts so you will have to get to Brixton before then for it.

Jesus, Idles are on some form at the moment. Great gig last night, support were superb also loved Lime Garden and Jehnny Beth… Great night all round

 

It was immense. Probably the loudest gig I've been to in 20+ years! Setlist pretty much spot on - they've got a serious back catalogue to fall back on now. Have to be considered for a big slot on the farm (JP or Other headliner?)
