    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.

    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.

    I've only seen Ghost once, supporting Alice In Chains. Didn't know much about them , but they were superb mate. Enjoy your night.

    The Killers have announced a 2020 stadium tour.

    The only Scottish date is Falkirk stadium. Of all the places to pick and they've gone for Falkirk?

    Blossoms are the support for a few early gigs, Sam Fender in London and they the Manic Street Preachers.

    Rough deal with Falkirk stadium and Blossoms.

    Saw that about Falkirk earlier. :56: They’re too big a band to be playing there but it’s great for locals.

    The stadium is just miles from everywhere.

    Falkirk doesn't exactly have tons of hotels for people to stay either.

    It looks to be about a 40-45min walk back to the train station to get somewhere on the Edinburgh-Glasgow line.

    Amazing mate. Songs were fantastic and the actual show itself was the same.

    Can’t be long before they’re headlining Download.
