Great, I've posted that on Twitter as someone was asking. Also people are asking if there is a support act?

I don't think there is a support act, but maybe DJ's? If I was going I would warm up at Geralds, starting at 5pm just down the road. Have fun!

Dj support was Disco Dave, and extra support from Drummer Carl when Dave's laptop crashed, Daz said "never trust a computer as they always go down on ya"

and this one goes..........and this one goes.........and this one goes............yes yes yes yes yes.

MASSIVELY delayed due to traffic, only getting there 15 minutes before 808 were due on, but hey, WELL worth it in the end.

Sometimes when you hear 808 live one or two of the instruments get 'lost' in all the sound and don't quite get heard as they should, not tonight. Every instrument had equal billing and it was a joy to watch Grahams guitar snapping movements getting the full on sound treatment it deserves.

With lasers to match this was certainly one of the best 808 gigs I've been to.

The highlight was probably Lift (revisited), as not only is it a track rarely heard live, it was also awesome, and had all the elements of the original and the heavy mix combined, plus some. Chunky stuff.

Bring on the tour.

IMMENSE!!
