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.

Not long now..... :-D

I saw James saying they'd rehearsed heavier elements of the backcatalogue. Are we expecting anything not played on the recent tour, or was he just referring to Slash N Burn, Masses and There By The Grace of God (one of these may not be a serious suggestion)

Maybe they'll pull out all the stops and play stuff like Kevin Carter, Ocean Spray, Sun, EMG and Autumnsong? I don't think they'd dare play Autumnsong considering how somewhat similar the riff sounds to a certain GAR song Either way, it should be some good exposure for the band and they'll enjoy it I'm sure. Hope they can win a few new fans over.

Nightmare. Nicky’s mum has passed away. Condolences on what should have been a great week for the band.

I'm presuming that they've pulled out? I don't think using a stand in for Nicky would be right in these circumstances.

I've always admired and respected Nicky's deep love for his mother. In many ways his mother was his greatest influence upon him. I wish him and his family the greatest comfort for the future.

Ouch, Irene had such a strong connection to the Manics fan community in her own right. Difficult times, words fail me.

Whatever they do, they would have discussed it with Nick.

Me too. Losing a loved one is such a difficult time, but in time I hope Nicky and his brother will be able to take some comfort that their Mum got to see and share their very notable achievements.

Poor Nicky, it must be so tough to accept such a loss

Any updates on if they are actually playing? I guess no updates means they will play?
