I'll be there. If it's as good as the THB show was in 2014, we're in for a treat.

Well, I'm not making it tonight... My train was already half an hour behind schedule by the time we reached Newcastle, and then they announced there was flooding further up the line and also that high winds would be forcing the train to travel much slower, so basically god alone knows what time I'd have gotten into Glasgow. I'm sure I'd have still gotten there in time for the gig, but I didn't want to turn up after doors and I was worried about getting home tomorrow because childcare. So I got off at Newcastle and headed home. What a rubbish end to my tour!

Hope everyone going tonight has a brilliant time and really enjoys your just-for-Barrowlands-because-Marwood-isn't-here set list of Lifeblood and Patrick Bateman

Oh no, sorry to read that. I feel your pain, the only time i had a chance to watch them in glasgow they had to cancel the very day i was travelling up there (6+ hours) because james was ill and i wasn't very well myself. Least you didn't make the entire trip.

Thanks. It's fine, I made the choice, I can live with it. Was that the Lifeblood tour? Finding out that gig was cancelled hours after I arrived in Glasgow still haunts me.

Looks like the same set list as the last few nights except Little Baby Nothing took Ocean Spray's slot, and Ocean Spray got moved to the Into the Waves of Love slot. So basically a lot of people were spared Into the Waves of Love tonight and should probably feel very grateful.

That's the one, an 11th hour cancellation and for whatever reason I didn't go to the rescheduled date.

Best time of my 8 times seeing Manics last night.

The band were absolutely on fire. Unbelievable setlist.

Only downside from a personal point of view was that I fell on my face on St Vincent Street before the gig.

I had asked if people wanted to have a wee hello before this gig.


What I got was stupid folk trying to get a picture with old uncle Fitzy behind them.
If I culture slut myself up and you want me in your picture... I will be in your picture. They all got a fright when I grabbed them ��
