been listening to this record all day
for manchester last wk there were two supports. missed the first but the second were slotface at 8:20 who are not very good and i think sound like no doubt. cribs were on at 9:30.
mnwnw was over in a heartbeat, then they did a couple of singles from around the time, a few bsides and maybe 5 other songs? it was all over too soon, it was very very good
Our Bovine Public is a belter of an opener.
Really wish I had gotten a ticket now…
I got tickets for all dates except Bristol and each night so far I come away with a new stand out favourite song. I’ve lived with this album for over 10 years (and 2007 was such an important year for me - soundtracked in part by MNWNW) and hearing it live I’m almost surprised just how amazing each song is - it’s such a strong album. I now can’t wait to hear My Life Flashed Before My Eyes next.
Also, those B-sides are fantastic. I would have been so happy if they’d done away with the ‘best of’ remainder of the set and done something like this again:
I was at that gig btw
I think you may be the biggest cribs fan I’ve come across and I know a few folk who are fucking nuts for them
Well that was really fucking good.
i’m off to leeds tomorrow, cannot wait.
what was you highlight meow?
I really liked Be Safe as everyone went pretty wild.
But I liked a certain older song they played at the end which i won’t spoil for you but it took me back to my youth
Be Safe is pretty much the best singalong chorus in all of music!
Everyone arms in the air, belting it out.
See you there
Wonderful gig. Everyone in the crowd was so happy. Be Safe was such a great hands in the air singalong moment. Good selection of tunes after the album too.
Went in the pit a couple of times. The t shirt i was wearing fucking stinks now.
Goal of getting drunk, sweaty and emotional = ACHIEVED
On the way out people were singing so many different tunes, it was lovely
think i’ll ceratinly head into the pit for a couple of numbers
Love this. Well done you.
what time have they been taking to stage each gig?
and also what’s the leeds arena like?
I’m guessing it’s like a big arena, in Leeds.
They hit the stage at 9:15pm in Glasgow.
