Well this is probably only of interest to me [I can hear you all saying 'who?'] but they are playing on the 3rd August, shame it's a Tuesday night but I'll be there

Just wondering if anyone else on here was planning on going.

Can't wait, it will be the first gig I've been to since I got here, I was spoilt living close to London
On second thoughts I really ought to grow up a little and act my age but life's too short I'll maybe try and stay out of the mosh though...

I went to the Auckland one...it was freakin fabulous...A brilliant night...so brilliant that I was investigating flying down to CHCH to see them again (I know someone that it is doing that too)

Let me know if you're coming! I'm going all alone as Mr S is not really into music and I'd rather be on my own than have to drag him along knowing he's hating it I always go for standing as well so it's not so obvious that I'm Norman no-Mates
Saw them a few years ago and had an excellent night. Couldn't make it to Auckland unfortunately.

well, i'd probably have stumped up for the Akl-Chch flight…. BUT I'm not sure i'll run to Manc-Chch!!!

have fun!!

last gig I went to was Tom Waits in Edinburgh the year before we came out here! far too long ago, but still feel all tingly thinking about it - absolutely ace!

saw the libtertines in carlisle before they got big (that's cos no-one that's big plays carlisle!!) good night too!

They were excellent the last times I saw them. Got stuck in the mosh at one of the gigs and got kicked in the head by a stage diver, a 'where is my mind' moment indeed.
