I am literally stupidly excited about it, thought my chance to see them had long since passed.
I'm going, I went to Manchester in the summer and they were just amazing

The only thing that will not match will be the crowd . U.A.E crowds are pretty shite to be honest , a lot of them will not even know who the Roses are , they're just event cattle , it's a shame they can't just stick to making an arse of themselves at brunch !

I saw Ian Brown in Dubai a few years ago and he was pretty good but the crowd were clueless . He actually nearly chinned some pissed up fella at the front of the stage.

I'll probably still go
Mate, the charlatans were class and there was a couple of thousand BRits, pissed up dancing all night - times that by two or three and you'll have a great atmosphere

Just scrolled through all of their advertised events and unable to find it. Sold out already, perhaps? So how much are the tickets selling for?

We might need a separate thread to list all the bands whose first album was magnificent, and was never equalled by their later stuff......... they are definitely one of them..........

Media city is not a bad venue anyway, never too far away from the stage unlike Meydan where in cheaper areas you are miles away, but only see them once so 500 it is

I was at the Glasgow Green gig in 1990, which according to the band themselves was the best gig they ever played (see below). It was in a big tent and was the best gig I ever attended. They are having another gig at Glasgow Green next year I think.

Hopefully Dubai hasn't sold out and I can get to gig.

Ticket ordered, you mean. They won't physically get delivered until mid-January 2013 assuming the gig goes ahead.

Ignore Mentalist & his usual negativity. You should be used to him wamting everything to go wrong for everyone else by now.The event organiser is a good guy and the only reason it wouldn't is because of something to do with the band, much the same as with any other event anywhere.

Quick question, is there drink openly on sale at gigs in dubai and will there be transport (taxis/buses) at media city following gig?

Cheers
