A great night. The bar for Wembley has been set very high indeed.

Nice to see everyone again, hope you all got home safely.

Was a few other people who also had their phones stolen tonight, seems to be a growing problem thesedays.
That really sucks. Never happened to me at a gig (purely out of luck I guess, I'm not overly secure or anything) but if it did I'd be fucking livid. I'm hearing about this happening increasingly, I'm definitely going to be more careful.
the same thing happened to me as well. i'm pretty unhappy about it. turned a fairly cheap night - ticket bought ages ago, a few drinks - into a really expensive one. my phone is insured - as long as they don't try to weasel out of it - but the excess is £100.

and that's really helpful when you're earning £100 a week and interning the rest of the time. I earn less money than my rent is at the moment (unsustainable obviously over time, but necessary for now) so this is completely devastating.

what makes it worse is that it made the gig a waste of time too. I know 'yeah it's just a material possession', but I was in (and still am in) a terrible mood. it's so completely crucial to me as someone trying to break into the world of journalism. fortunately I also write all my contacts down in a book (archaic yes, but no cunt goes round stealing books as far as I know.)

I did enjoy redemption though, thought that was great.
and drive all night 'till the break of dawn

Loved both Manchester and Hammersmith, thought that the Manchester setlist was the best because we got Rivers and Polaroid Picture instead of Redemption and Nights Become Days.

Ended up right near the front for both gigs, managed to get pushed to the 2nd row at Hammersmith where I ended up behind screaming girls which was quite annoying at times.

It was nice to catch up with lots of people over the weekend too.

i prefer cowboy chords to polaroid picture - and loved seeing redemption live ... the lights on the stage floor (from the gods) looked amazing ...

Gangs going round lifting phones out of pockets at gigs is noticeably increasing. My guess is they're probably tied to the same gangs that run the ticket touts outside (if the touts end up with any spare tickets as the acts come on, I guess it's one way of making even more cash out of an otherwise wasted ticket), but it's still a completely heartless thing to do. I hope you guys don't suffer too much because of them.

When I used to go deep into the standing area at a gig, I'd nearly always bought a t-shirt at the merch stand. My old trick was to stuff the spare t-shirt into my pocket on top of my phone/wallet/etc. Packed in tightly, it makes it practically impossible for anyone to go dipping into your pocket without them really struggling and you realising what they're doing long before they get close your possessions. Appreciate it's bit late for you guys, though. :(

Hurray!

I thought AM! were fucking ace. I was realllly really really hoping for any one of Pints of Guinness, Reinventing Axl Rose, We Laugh at Danger or Walking is Still Honest, and yet the played all four! I was well chuffed.

Also judging by Frank's set-lists, I think I would have preferred any set list apart from the Manchester one, which I went to. Damn.

I think next time I won't even bother bringing a phone. Still pretty pissed off about it, its more the hassle of losing phone numbers and pictures than the actual loss of the phone. Going to have to do some more overtime to get a new phone I guess :(

I don't see how whoever did it managed to get it out of my pocket so easily, I can barely get my hands in them. Think it was the little runt in a white t shirt standing near me. Didn't ever sing any of the words, or even move much, spent half of Franks set with his eyes shut and the second half he disappeared.

I think thats the trouble with crowd events - I am always wary of bags, pockets etc being opened by people around me. I tend to keep my phone in a buttoned shirt pocket and my wallet on a chain so if someone took it out my pocket they would not get far.

It's really sad that this happens at gigs :(

I went to my fist Frank Turner gig the other day. (Manchester Apollo 26th) Got to say I'm pretty glad this was my first, because the set was brilliant, two new songs, classics and my favourite tracks from EKMB all rolled into an amazing show. Also got to say the Queen cover at the end was brilliant too. Definitely looking forward to future Frank gigs and I'm proud to say this was my first concert. Got quite near the front too.

I'm sorry about your phone, I'd be gutted to lose mine. On the flip side though, Rags' bag came open during the gig in Hammersmith and she realised afterwards that her wallet had gone. We all assumed it'd been nicked but someone came over and said it'd been handed in to security and she got everything back

Had a great time at the Birmingham and London shows managed to get to the barrier for both of them. Still trying to recover from both of them, as i don't think i have slept properly since Wednesday. Emily Barker and Against me were also awesome! Sorry about the people who had phones stolen. I always worry a lot about getting my stuff stolen at gigs, so i took a little pouch and kept all my money and phone in there during the gig.
I met some people from here at the end when i joined in with the owling at the Hammersmith Show. Nice to see you!

I am feeling very old today. Had a marvelous time in Manchester and London, but am definitely not cut out for lack of sleep and a lot of booze anymore.

Back to work today. Utterly depressing.

Glasgow was very good. Only caught the end of Emily Barker's set (wasn't too fussed though as wasn't that enamoured by her on the Love, Ire and Song tour), but Against Me! were all piles of awesome. Really great to finally see them and they played a decent set-list. And by god Jay hits the drums hard, but that's what that band needs.

Frank's set was very swish. Really liked the lighting they had worked out as it made the set flow really well. My favourite part of his set though was hearing Sons of Liberty with the violin solo, no offence to Frank's guitar solo'ing of the past,but the violin part makes that song.

All in all a good night with good people around. Ended up in Maggie Mays' till about 2am drinking and chatting.

Ended up with a couple really nice new phones too.

Man alive...you missed out. She was awesome both nights I saw her. Much better than previously, and having Frank on to do Fields of June was superb. I mean, I am slightly biased as I both adore her music, and also as a person (and the rest of the too, as they are party animals and hilarious to boot).

Against Me aren't my bag really. I don't dislike them, but I wasn't exactly blown away either.
