    Yea the Manics as far as i know.

    This sucks then that my tickets haven't come. Ticketmaster have said the majority will be dispatched today but i dunno.
    They said to contact them if they haven't arrived by Friday.:(:(

    After i posted that last comment i got an email from them stating they've been dispatched, so hopefully will arrive today.

    Should be a great gig, been wanting to see the Foo's for years.

    Not sure mate. I dont think the Manics are playing at Wembley with them, I heard it was The Editors and a few more Indie type bands.

    Can't wait for the Manics at Manchester though.:smashin:

    Yep, fantastic gig! Foo's were amazing, Manics were also amazing and even the Futureheads were pretty good.

    Loved it! The bottle throwing in the crowd was kinda mental! Seemed to be some kind of war going on!!

    Yep, hopefully i will too. My girlfriend got hit in the head by a bottle which some cretin threw pretty hard, it hurt her but she dind't let it ruin things for her. (No she wasn't on my shoulders!)

    Apart from that, all good!! ...Well, despite the fact i had to travel back to Leicester last night and then get up for work at 7. So a total of 4 hours sleep for me has made me feel pretty ****. :smashin::smashin:
