    How'd you find it mate?

    I was honestly kind of underwhelmed. We seem to have got two less songs than other shows. The Ireland show the night before got Mountain on the Sun and Edge of Darkness (two of my favourites) and those were cut from the Glasgow show cos the band came on 29 mins late.
    The crowd was so flat until the encore section which was a shame.

    The good parts is the guys sounded good. Josh sounded back on point again which was a relief after watching videos of love shows at the start of the year and he was struggling to hit notes.

    I did think it was a quick show, only 11/12 songs but I was very near the front and everyone around me was bouncing.
    Thinking back now, my family asked me the next day how it was, and I said it was 'good'. My daughter says to me; "only 'good'?"
    I asked her what she meant and she says I usually say a gig was 'superb', or 'excellent', but she says I never say 'just good'. So maybe I was a wee bit underwhelmed as well mate.

    Got offered a ticket to Liam Gallagher today. Haven't heard much of his solo stuff but sure it will be good, dmas supporting as well.

    Does everyone just go to hear the old Oasis songs? :giggle1:

    I was offered tickets, but I'm not really fussed about going.

    I didn't plan on going really, just offered a ticket today so may as well. Will give his own tunes a bash for the rest of the week.

    I like Oasis, never their biggest fan, but they're decent. If he plays some of their stuff fair enough.

    Going to see Vampire Weekend tomorrow night at the Alexandra Palace, can’t wait. Been keeping an eye on their setlists online and they change it every night, so interested to hear what they come up with.

    Fantastic gig by fantastic musicians, not a single * note all night. The set list was great and they took requests from the audience during the encore. Heard all the songs I wanted plus a couple of extras.
