Tempted by that Glasgow gig but it's a little too close to Christmas.

Saw The National tonight at the Hammersmith Apollo. Top gig, albeit with some odd song selections. That said we got some rarities in Wasp Nest, Lucky You and Secret Meeting (!!!), all in a row too! Encore was a totally unexpected cover of Queen's I Want To Break Free, followed by Mr November, Terrible Love and then a big crowd singalong of Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks. Wonderful end to the show.

Not going near that - missed their Edinburgh gig due to a pre-booked holiday and am still not quite over it yet. :lol:

Security at Metallica tonight was so poor that we didn't get in until after the support act had finished playing even though we'd arrived in plenty of time. It's lucky I wasn't fussed about them but it sucks for people that were. Anyway, roll on Metallicock.

I went to see Weezer on Friday night, and the setlist was amazing. They basically pretended that they didn't have a new record to plug and instead played the majority of the Blue album instead. It was awesome.

Saw Metallica last night at Birmingham Genting Arena (NEC) on the last night of their UK leg. Tremendous set list including Shortest Straw (first play anywhere in 4 yrs apparently!), For Whom the Bells Toll, Spit Out The Bone, Dream No More, plus we had half of War Pigs with just Kirk and Rob. :wub:

The PA system blew during One :shock: and we had a 5 min interlude till it resumed.

10/10 without question from me. They hinted at Download too when they finished "see you soon England!"

4th time I've seen them and this was the best set list, even if no Creeping Death or anything off Death Magnetic.

Metallica :wub:

From what I witnessed last night the support (Kvelertak) were awful. Couldn't understand anything he 'sang'. Guitars were ok but very samey. And what the hell he was wearing on his head when he came on stage - looked like an animals head of some sort, with wings? I was in the Gods so couldn't see clearly
Edit: it's an owl! :shock: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=kvele ... upZO8SbI4M:

Oh man, I didn't realise they were touring with Kvelertak, I'd love to see them.

If that's the kind of setlist they're doing I'm *reasonably* glad I didn't part with my hundred quid - seen all the big songs before and am not that bothered about the new album. Good that they've abandoned Death Magnetic though - I wasn't a huge fan.

I'm amazed that Kendrick's not sold out his Glasgow date, anyone here going? Annoying it's on a Sunday for getting back to the burgh, might still go for it though.

saw every night of the Metallica UK tour. Manchester was the best cos the crowd was absolutely feral. lots of energy in the room that night. plus it had the best setlist. Birmingham felt a little bit flat by comparison but there's no such thing as a bad night when you're with Metallica. :datass:

Is that about half a grand spent on tickets?

Slightly more if you include the travel and food. I'd guess around 700/800 all in.

Plus the 4 shows I did in Copenhagen in February and September (as one was rescheduled due to illness).

My Metallica money is well and truly gone now!

Does anyone know if venues have a cut off time to letting people into a venue?

Doors open at 6 but don't think Rise Against are on until 8pm so wanted to arrive at about 7:30.
