It's not a sell out, I don't think, which may have advantages! I was there with my brother last night and it was utterly brilliant, guys on top top form.

However the "mosh pit" started at the bar at the very back at times and it was VERY hot and sweaty (not TOO HOT, just VERY) anywhere nearer the front.

My brother has ruined a decent pair of Docs and his jeans are in shreds. He says he loved every second.

I'm not sure if the venue was oversold and we all turned up, or if the crush may have been down to a few extra poundages on some of us (i.e. me) but it was difficult to dance at all ANYWHERE downstairs. It was beautiful and mad. Just like the old days I thought.

Look after each other tonight, please gang. Cool

I went last night, and im not overly keen on the new o2 Academy, some air con wouldnt go amiss down the front either.
However ive never known Terry talk as much as he did, and as for the guy proposing to his girlfriend on stage well that was just awesome, what a moment.
Enjoyed the Crown too, did anyone go there after.
Im completely bolloxed out now Smile

Went Leicester on Sunday and Brum on Tuesday. Leicester's sound wasn't as good but otherwise was a great venue with room to actually dance and breathe and a great atmosphere. Really didn't like the new O2 in Brum...felt like they were cramming as many in as possibe, just too make as much money as they can and observed a few arguments near the front and saw a few thrown out. Just didn't have the fun atmosphere of Leicester.

Totally agree, Liverpool was the better venue for me, atmosphere was far better than Brum
