  1. A story on the BBC News site says that big stars are playing small venues right now. I saw Muse at the Newport Centre, South Wales, a few years ago and it was fantastic! Just the band plus Morgan. I wish they would do a few small gigs around the UK while we wait until they tour their full show again!
  2. I want to send a fan letter and the address I have is for Q-Prime Management in New York. Is that correct? They say to send an SAE for a signed photo. I live in the UK so UK stamps are no use. What should I do?
  3. I thought he was having a dig at the show which was on at Wembley at the same time.
  4. They played a small gig in Scotland when they played a small gig in Wales. Other than that they haven't played in Wales for about 9 years. London, Manchester, Birmingham, the biggest cities in the UK. I was surprised they played in Bristol. It's closer to me but I had to go to London to find someone to go with. Glasgow, Cardiff and Belfast should be part of every tour.
  5. Re lax bag checks. I had food and drinks in a carrier bag on the back of my wheelchair and they were going to let me through. I told them about it and they confiscated the sandwich. So how small IS a small amount of food? Luckily we had Nakd bars as we had a really late lunch and didn't have time to eat again before the gig. No way was I going to eat the junk on sale inside.
  6. I was at the back of the lower tier directly facing the stage. I have mild hearing loss in my right ear and moderate hearing loss in my left ear. I removed my hearing aids and listened with earplugs in. It didn't sound right so I removed the plug from my left ear. It sounded great then! The ambulant disabled seating was great but venue staff didn't seem to know what 'ambulant disabled' means. Because I was in a fold-up wheelchair I was directed to a wheelchair space. Tom Morello was so loud they couldn't hear me saying, no, my seat is in row 23. I'm going to get out of this wheelchair. They got it in the end. I wish they'd pointed out that there was an accessible toilet directly behind block 149 - we were in block 150 - so we went to the one outside the entrance to our block first. There was a queue. It was a pain in the arse having to store the wheelchair five blocks away . Most venues allow me to leave it close to the area where I am sitting. My son had to go and get it the second time I needed the loo. Luckily he saw the accessible toilet by block 149 then so I didn't have to bother him again as I can walk that far. I loved the set. I'm sorry if people further back found the screen small. I remember being on the top tier of the Etihad Stadium for the 2nd Law tour. If I hadn't been able to see the screen, there would have been no point being there. We travelled from Burnt Oak Broadway by train then from St Pancras, again by train, to Stratford International. No hassle at all. On the way back there was very little time to wait at Stratford. There was a 30 minute wait for a train from St Pancras so we got the tube to Edgware. No hassle. Journeys to and from the stadium took just over an hour. I saw Drones live and it was wonderful but I wasn't disappointed in the staging for this. I preferred the Etihad Stadium to this one, though. Too damn big. Next tour I hope they come to Cardiff instead of going to Bristol again. We have a fabulous stadium here and I don't think they've played here since 2010, before I became a fan.
  7. Finally printed my tickets! I have a seat so doors open 17.00 for us, I think. Does anyone know what time the support will be onstage? I missed most of Bastille last time because I didn't realise they'd be onstage so early. I think they came on at 18.00 so perhaps then?
  8. When I saw them at the O2 on their last tour there was such a queue for the Tube we got a bus instead. I was staying in Greenwich so it didn't take long but if you're staying further away the Tube is faster.
  9. Hi. I recently asked you if I could change my username back to maturefan. A couple of years ago I asked if I could change my name from maturefan to exile. You didn't do it then. I just want to be maturefan again. Please? Pretty please?

  10. Hi. I have a confession to make: I went through a really bad patch a few years ago when I was maturefan. I posted a lot of stupid stuff and got a lot of hassle for it. I set up a second profile so no-one would know it was me. I'm over all that now. I want to be maturefan again. Please can you do whatever needs to be done to bring me back? Sorry if I have broken any rules.
