Weather's turned a bit showery now

Getting ready for the gig with a nice wander around York.... Yeah, I walked the Shambles but not with real intent!

(And if James doesn't sing that tonight I'm going to be disappointed!)

Looking forward to the Manics playing in my home town! I'm 23 weeks pregnant, so no front rows for me, but should still be a good night!

Bravo!

Dammit I'm on comedy for tonight.... Twas me that word out "Fuck fromage" that not only got a large chunk of the audience laughing but also got repeated by Gwen on stage.

You probably had to be there....

hummingbird 27-05-2019 22:53

Well that was magnificent. I was Nicky's side of the stage for the first time in 10 years. Nice to get a close up of the jackets and the smiles and the scissor kicks

Set highlights ......err all of it?

Wasn't fussed about hearing sweet child o mine but it was so much fun .. hope it stays for Liverpool.

No trouble in the crowd as far as I could tell so that was cool, I was surrounded by a friendly bunch.

First time in the York Barbican last night. Was a bit worried that the place seemed like a mini-arena - in my experience Manics tend to put on worse performances in larger venues. But last night ended up being amazing - the sound mix and quality was brilliant (much better than Manchester Ritz) and both Nicky and James seemed in a great mood.

I won't do a song by song summary again, but I'd reckon that the performances of The Everlasting and You Stole the Sun were about the best I've heard. Prologue came to life a bit more, but Black Dog on My Shoulder still stole the show. One of my realisations about TIMTTMY is that despite it not being a 'guitar' album there is a hell of a lot of brilliant and understated guitar work on it.

I can give or take Sweet Child o' Mine - there's plenty of Manics songs I'd rather see, but at the same time I can understand why the band have to do things to keep it fun and interesting for themselves.

As always, will be interesting to see whether anything rare off TIMTTMY sticks around in the set lists for later in the summer....

Wonderful gig. Very surprised how good the never played album tracks came off. Solitude Sometimes Is was much better than it was live in 2005 from memory.
