A few metres off barrier. Would have gotten it if some cunt didn't try to bring a beer bottle in and held up the queue. Prick.

Getting to the barrier was an absolute nightmare!!! But I think all the boardies that I know made it.

 

Oh man, glad you made it! :D Ugh, I hate that kind of anxiety. *shudder*

It was the worst. There was a million doors and they all opened at once, then like 6 funnels of people being led down the stairs and let go. Horrible.

On the train home now, oh my god that was incredible, was my first muse gig and head rear view up in block 220, despite being high up we could see perfectly. Argh so good!

Amazing Gig. Only disappointment was Matt not playing the intro to New Born but we can't have everything now can we.

 

Other note of interest - they don't seem to be using the same Mic stands that rotate around like in the resistance tour.

I almost caught the second stick he threw. It landed on the seat in front of me and a kid got it. Bloody spotlights, would of caught it otherwise

That was amazing Matt was loving us rear viewers. It was their playground tonight and the set list was quite interesting. Rear view tickets were a bargain considering how matt was performing

Yer, Matt seemed to enjoy himself allot and he loved being near the crowd. Chris was nailing Liquid state. Shocked to see they played that. Top form, The stage is fantastic. Swerve sticking them 10 meters in the air , get them near the audience. :LOL:

A real party atmosphere and it's never really been that way to me for the 10 times I've seen them, perhaps partly the crowd vibes and partly the tone of the new album

Well I really enjoyed myself.

 

Positives:

 

Longer setlist. I don't think this needs any further explaination. Last arena was a little bit grim.

 

Bellz is really on form. Its good to see the little bastard happy and good to see it reflected in the crowd. Really party atmosphere.

 

The new songs sounded great. T2L ain't the best album ever, but it dicks all over The Resistance.

 

Decent light show. Offers much more creativity than the towers though I think they were unfairly maligned.

 

Negatives:

 

Had a few issues with people not liking mosh pits. Without starting that annual argument, if you don't like it; you have many choices. Go really forward, go a few rows back, buy seated tickets and don't be such a twat are just some of those choices. Some guy who clearly thought he was watching Oasis judo-tripped me a few times, he regretted it later, but why be like that?

 

The intro is a little underwhelming in terms of fan reaction. A shame because all the new tunes are pretty good (not explorers). I dunno, maybe it will come with time?

 

Explorers. Just why?

 

It still feels like I've seen it all before? There are so many Muse songs I haven't heard live, but I guess I still really enjoyed myself.

 

Overall? A vast improvement on the last arena tour.

I must say what others have, the MEN design for standing is absolute crap, why no floor level entrances? No matter what time you'd queued from (only 2pm in my case) it turned into a lottery as to whether your early queuing got you as near the front as you thought you'd be.

 

............bit jealous of those standing at the front..but think I,m a bit old for a mosh pit now;)

 

You can never be too old, I was in the middle of that last night with my wife and 18yo son....and I'm 46!! It was superb, jumping about and singing like an idiot.

 

Now onto Dublin for a repeat performance

Gig was totally epic, best one of the tour and possibly favourite ever. Managed to get center barrier despite the clusterfuck of floor entry. Crowd were so up for it and I got a handshake from Matt :awesome:
