I'll be there on my lonesome tonight, so if you see a blonde kid in a manchester orchestra shirt, come and say hi.

What an incredible gig. The special guest was Mr. Bragg who did a 40 minute set and then was joined by Frank. They played a song together, but I shall keep it quiet as I don't want to ruin the surprise.

Pretty sure I know what they did from seeing it posted around on twitter. Should be good.

Pretty much being extremely dapper while introducing the acts.

Had a great time at the gig. Was a real family vibe.

I'd like to say a public thank you to the guy who emailed me to buy my spare ticket from this forum. Thank you for not showing up, answering your phone or emails. Not just the out of pocket thing that annoys me but I also could've sold that ticket 3 or 4 times over. So thank you for not showing. I hope you had a dam good reason.

I enjoyed reading this review because it was well written & conveyed the information I'd want to know because I wasn't there that night and It was obvious that you were. As a comparison, when I read the Wembley review by the Guardian journalist I thought she wasn't at the same gig I went to or not there at all which might be why her article was skewed to social commentary.
