There's a premier inn right next door, currently £42 a night.

I've booked in there but I wont be checking in till about 9pm because I'm working in Manchester that day. Hope to get to the gig at 9.30pm before 808 come on around 10 (I presume). I also need to check out early the following morning (9am) cos I'll be working in Manchester again on the Sunday.

There was no encore and Olympic wasn't played either. Metaluna was played by mistake after Cobra Bora. There was a couple of long delays between tracks, probably why there was no encore.

I've a couple of vids which I'll post on youtube sometime. Top sound and top venue, I even took home Bez's maraca which he threw into the crowd which ended up at my feet :D

All the others are very shaky, I must have had a breather during this, liking the Graham solo guitar close up and red lighting.
