According to Spotify (your year in review) the song I've listen to most this last year is Facing Page Top Left - I honestly can't remember listening to this song any more than any other in the past year?

I reckon Patrick Bateman would be perfect for a big hard bastard wrestler to walk down the aisle too.

And yeah, probably most likely to play Patrick Bateman over Ghost Of Christmas, they have done Patrick Bateman before and fuck me I hope they avoid December tours for a while, I can't hack it. Although I have heard James say "'appy Christmas" in September before...

they'd probably have to fill most of Patrick Bateman with beeps unless they use an instrumental!

James' voice sounded perfect on Wednesday night, was panicking like mad when I heard he was ill on the Monday - still reckon at least half of the crowd on the Wednesday were full of cold

Most of them, yes! But the ones from Nille are in English.

Too busy soaking in the smell of ribbe to have random Manics thoughts now!

Random Manic Thought:

What album will inspire the next anniversary tour if there is one?

I'm saying This Is My Truth.

I'd prefer it if there weren't specific anniversary tours, but that general tours have songs from albums celebrating anniversaries in. Much like this past tour had a Lifeblood song in.

(would we have got 1985 if it wasn't ten years since that album came out?)

I think them being asked in interviews "Which album are you going to play in full next?" will be their journalistic equivalent to "Sleepflower!".
I was under the impression these shows (Although performed as many times as they like) were a one off type of shows.
But then you never know. These shows have been incredible. The money would be in number 1 album, TIMTTMY as that didn't even get a 10th Anniversary (Nicky admitted in an interview there could have been an 10th Anniversary of that album, but no. And then took it out on a ruler on a desk if I remember) would at least get something for it's 20th.
At least Tolerate getting to number one in more than one country will be more fuel for celebration by the band.
