Axl's voice struggled at times on the slower songs, but was fine elsewhere - I think they rarely play concerts on successive nights any more, partly to give his voice dequate rest between shows.

Both shows had a main support act (Biffy Clyro was in Paris, can't remember who in London) who got 45 minutes and a second support who got about half an hour. Don't think they've announced if there's a second support act so there's a chance the Manics might get an hour.
The 2nd support is Greta Van Fleet, who have been getting attention because the lead singer, the twin brother of the guitarist, sounds EXACTLY like Robert Plant. It doesn't help that he wears the same clothes and dones the same hand gestures as Plant as well.
