Friday: Staying put at the main stage all day. Will hopefully get a good spot for Metallica too. Just remembered I need to meet up with someone who is coming down in the afternoon, so might have to sacrifice seeing a band for the banter to be had during the Metallica set :(

Saturday: Serj Tankian, Biffy Clyro, Goldfinger, QOTSA and RATM. I've got the times noted down, so Ill probably follow my mates around the rest of the time

Friday: The Subways, Flogging Molly, Bullet For My Valentine. Then I'm not sure whether to go and see Manic Street Preachers or The Killers. Not a huge fan of either band so whoever my friends go and see will dictate that choice

Also what happens after all the bands finish at 11? Do other things go on or does everyone head back to the campsite for drinkies?


Manics are brilliant live, get the crowd singing along and put on a good show. The Killers just stand there, with no effort to engage the crowd.

I think I've just about sorted my watch list for Reading now: Friday is relatively slow, with only seven acts (Taking Back Sunday, DIZZEE RASCAL, Serj Tankian, MON THE BIFFY!, Goldfinger, QOTSA and obviously Rage Against The Machine).

Saturday is a bit more packed, with the aceness of The Blackout and Kids In Glass Houses, some NME approved stuff in the form of The Subways, The Ting Tings and Editors, and then a blitz across the stages for You Me At Six, Thrice, Alkaline Trio, and then capped off by The Killers.

Sunday is simple: it's pretty much the main stage all day, only leaving to check out In Case Of Fire, who were awesome when they were support for Funeral For A Friend a few weeks ago.

Unless it's changed from when I used to read it, Wednesdays.

Looked at the dates in Kerrang earlier while in WHSmiths.

Hammersmith Apollo
December 1st and 2nd.

I'll post the rest in a second when I look online for 'em.

EDIT: Here's all the dates.

DECEMBER
1st - Hammersmith Apollo
2nd - Hammersmith Apollo
5th - Cardiff Arena
7th - Birmingham NIA
8th - Glasgow SECC
9th - Manchester MEN Arena
11th - Newcastle METRO Arena
12th - Sheffield Arena

That's for Slipknot, Machine Head and Children of Bodom. I'm fairly sure someone else is on that tour, I remember reading DevilDriver/Dimmu Borgir somewhere, but can't remember if that was official or not.

Signatures from Johannes Persson and Klas Rydberg in the Beyond booklet. 8-)

Johannes smeared some blood from a cut on my friends ticket. :lol:

They're the coolest guys I've ever met. Completely appreciative of your support and seem pleased to meet fans. It's also the coolest show I've ever been to. The stage was knee height and we could easy touch them over the barrier if we wanted (we were right at the front in the middle), and they would frequently come up and stand on the barrier. Finland totally blew me away, as did basically everything else. The support was way better than I was expecting too.

strawberry float YES. This will be my third time seeing Machine Head, and i think i could go seem them another 20 times before i got bored. Quite looking forward to seeing Bodom too. Ill reserve my judgement for Slipknot untill after their set at Leeds.
