Courteeners Heaton Park

Recommended Posts

I was supposed to be going to this but had to give my tickets away as booked flights on the morning. School boy error. Gutted as I’ve seen The Courteeners 14 times since the first single got released.

Giving it a miss due to not living in Manchester anymore and can't justify the travel and accommodation cost to see them for the 20th+ time, but last time at Heaton park was brilliant so whoever is going will have an amazing time.

If you are going, I'd recommend getting there early to see Pale Waves, great live band.

I'm looking forward to Pale Waves I'm hoping to get in in time for them!

Not sure what the queues / security will be like! It was a breeze last time they played there but that was a while ago!

Looks like it's going to be wellie weather!

I'd expect big queues at gate opening and before James after people come in from the pub, but might not be too bad for Pale waves time. All changed unfortunately since then - the pat downs were...thorough at Neighbourhood Weekender!!

Thank you!! I'm hoping to get in for Pale Waves so fingers crossed the queues wont be too bad! :) Since I fully expect to be queuing in the rain!! HAHA :D 

Was that Neighbourhood this year? We went last year and there was nothing, just glanced in my bag! Everywhere is SO inconsistent with the searches I was just saying this to my mate!! Like, last summer we went to Finsbury Park two nights in a row, LG on the Friday we got barely a pat down and QOTSA the day after at the same place it was very thorough and lots of dogs!

I guess you never know until you arrive how long it's gunna take!

Yeah some of the videos from Parklife looked a bit grim haha! I don't expect it dry up much either given the forecast!

I'm debating if to wear wellies or not! I don't want wet feet but I don't want to deal with wellies before we go since we'll be going to a few pubs and that first!

I don't know how funny they will be about letting us in pubs! When we went to LG at Old Trafford last year we just had trainers on and really struggled going for a few pints after! So don't know how wellies would go down!!

Out of interest, are you going back to the centre after the gig? Are you planning to walk? We haven't worked that out yet! Need to get the night bus from city centre back home but its a mooch back isn't it!

You won't get in anywhere in town with Wellies on.

Is that just after? Or will I struggle in the afternoon too before we head up to HP?

You might be alright in the afternoon, can't see that being an issue. I would go round the northern quarter or in a Wetherspoons.

Anyone know what like the vip area is ? 

Yeah would like some information on this also . Could be pretty naff by the looks and I will be a little miffed if I’ve paid double price for just golden circle.

“The package includes a standing ticket with guaranteed front circle access Dedicated VIP bar facility Additional toilets for VIP guests only Please note - No complimentary food and beverage is included within this package. Street food style dining options available”

 

Couple of private bogs and a few private bars by the sounds of it.
