Had a great time on Monday night. I was in the hotel opposite the arena so I heard everything on Sunday night too!
The sound was a bit weird though, sounded quite fuzzy to me, I thought maybe that was just my barrier location but seems like others thought so too.

My Manics gigging days are done, but it sounds like it was good fun, bar the usual shitty venue sound.

Lots of lovely "Doing shouty-pointy to Slash N Burn? On the barrier? With my reputation??" from boys and girls now in their 40s (I'm nearly there too!) and you do, as the kids say, love to see it. Big love to y'all.
Hiya

I saw Terminal Young Thing (Kath) at the gig and she mentioned that she'd seen you out and about.

Did both gigs with my fifty year old rock / goth sister, and wished so much that I could still jump around. Still enjoyed myself far too much though.

When people tell me to relax and go to my happy place, it's always a Manics gig.

Ah it'd be nice to see Kath, been a while - pandemics do get terribly in the way of these things. Really happy you had a good time. 🙂

Aww i'm pleased to read that she's still going to see them, that's great.
Just like the godfather 3...

I have put up a little vlog of my time in Cardiff on YouTube here!

Skip to 0.31 and 9.14 if you just want to watch the gig footage and not me waffling on or random footage of Cardiff Bay and so on (I won't be offended, any watch time is good!)

Starting work on my blog post too but am back at work today so it may take me a while to get that done.

Thanks for sharing. You got me emotional at the end there.

No problem and thank you for watching! I really do feel like a special Manics era is upon us. In a way I'm glad these gigs were postponed until this time, as it brought them into the TUVL era rather than standing alone. It was great coming home from Cardiff knowing that it's less than three weeks til I see them again, instead of months as it would have been in December or July.
