I'll be at Southampton on both Friday and Saturday (don't judge me - I'm taking different groups of friends each night, or at least that's my excuse). If you see a short-arsed brunette down the front, either (a) singing along to Will Varley, (b) dancing like a lunatic to Skinny Lister or (c) doing both of the above during FT&TSS, feel free to say hello!

Having just got in from a spectacular first night in Southampton, I hereby decree that FT shows should be made available on the NHS. Never has my mood been lifted so much as by the Will Varley/ Skinny Lister/ Frank combo - a perfect line-up and all on cracking form.

High points including finally crossing 'Pass It Along' off my never-heard-live list, and some excellent crowd-surfing antics from Skinny Lister's bassist (complete with double bass) and by Frank himself. Although was it just me who got slightly scared when the over-zealous crowd seemed to be hurtling Frank towards the fire exit at an alarming rate of knots?!

I'm now voiceless, bruised and exhausted . . . can't wait to do it all again tomorrow :D

I'm also bruised and croaking after another splendid night of dancing around like a green haired idiot, bouncing up and down and singing along to everything. Great gig, as always.

Although I'm *slightly* envious of those going back tonight for round 2, I'm secretly rather glad that I've got a week until Rock City to try and recuperate. - "Oh my broken battered body..."

So my resume:

Glasgow: Crazy venue, wonderful gig and nice set. We had so much space in the front - space to dance! Amazing! Everything was perfect until we checked our phones after the gig. Horrible.

Newcastle: Sticky venue, no air at all, aggressive people with no respect, strange atmosphere as well because of Paris. Weirdest FT show ever I guess.

Notts 1: Amazing! Favourite gig ever! Poetry Of The Deed, Fathers Day, Love Ire & Song, Journey Of The Magi. Wonderful.

Notts 2: My last gig of the tour, so I was already really sad, but wow, Notts was worth it. I loved it. Loved the whole trip.


Now I can't wait for january! <3

I went to Newcastle, I thought it was great. Woke up that morning not especially keen to go to a gig, but Frank was exactly what the soul needed after the night before. I was kind of in that sweet spot at gigs between the insanity front and centre, and the uninterested talkers at the back, so no complaints about that although it was a weird shaped venue so no doubt plenty struggled for a view. But it was also a nice change of feel from arenas or even more open feeling venues of similar size. As for the show itself it was emotional, Frank was clearly emotional but the guys really brought it because of that, and I'd probably put it up there with Wembley as the best FT gig I've been to.

I have to say, I completely agree. I have been trying to put my finger on exactly what it is, but I think Frank is right when he said "we're just better now" (or words to that effect). They are rarely bad, but I was genuinely blown away by how good they were/are on this tour.

I'm annoyed that I'm now going to miss the London show, especially as everyone keeps saying how good recent shows have been.

Sorry to rub it in, but having just got back from the Ally Pally show, I'm genuinely lost for words to describe how good it was. I don't think I've ever seen Frank and the band on such cracking form (despite having said something similar after the Southampton shows) and the supports were outstanding too. The security guard in front of me was totally loving Will Varley, and spent half of the set turning round to watch him . . .

And the acoustic version of Demons as a tribute to Paris was devastating and beautiful. It's always been my favourite PSFNP track but this took it to another level. What a night.
