The Madchester filmnight was a bit of a low-key event, about 10 punters in the cinema. The flyer was a lot more professional than the so-called Hacienda do afterwards. Still, good seeing the film on the big screen again. And I did get to meet a bunch of really nice New Order / Manchester-music fans (thanks to my 808 t-shirt). :)

Kriterion

Markus,
I hope ACR was a bit more of a 'high-key' event?!
I enjoyed Kriterion anyway, doesn't happen that much that you actually meet someone who also attended cities-in-the-park.

Hi Eddie, yes, well only about 100 people attended, at the most. Sunday night 01:15 start of a gig probably didn't appeal to too many people...
However I was really glad I went, they played for an hour and pretty similar to Paris I guess. It was held in the small room of the Paradiso, so that gave it an intimate feeling which was really nice.
Yes, cool to meet someone who attended Cities. By the way, 15 years on, and there are still t-shirts of that gig!

The Happy Mondays were on good form last night! Shaun looked a lot fitter (if that's possible) than when I saw him a year ago in Turin. Bez bouncing around and playing with the crowd who probably consisted of a large number of Mancs. No Rowetta, but another black singer who did the job well.
If you're interested, for a limited time, I've uploaded all the pictures and films I took here. Also check out the supporting act, ZZZ, the drummer used to be a colleague of mine :) They are becoming huge - recently opening for Fatboy Slim, Depeche Mode and touring Japan.

Last time when I saw Bez on the stage he was 'singing' along with New Order, bad attempt. But it was New Year (Ally Pally) so.......
Would have been nice to see the Hap's again, but couldn't get 1 day off !

Markus, I have no idea. Have to get a refund again then, this is getting a habbit (which I don't like, see www.myspace.com/edmcpike). I hope they come up with a new date.

In the meantime I've found out that there is still hope for a Dutch date. However the Brussels gig is the main one and it remains confirmed. See http://www.cerysmaticfactory.info/forum ... hread=9050

Shame it got cancelled. Could have been a fitting tribute to Tony Wilson.
