    Was pretty damn good last night. Trent on top form as usual and a decent mix in the set.
    Managed to get right to the front for once. Pity there wasn't a bigger encore. Managed to grab the setlist at the end but on my mobile atm so no easy way to post it.
    Will be heading to Nottingham too come saturday.

    That wasnt the case, fortunately. It was about a 50/50 split between newer electronic stuff and good, old fashioned face melters.

    NIN toured with Soundgarden and QOTSA in the States. I know the UK gets it pretty good re: US bands touring, but sheesh!

    Would love to see NIN live, although I am a delicate flower.

    The crowd wasnt rowdy. Since its an aging demographic, so kids at the front jumping about and then 3/4 of the people being 30+, so just standing around nodding and then REALLY nodding in the fast bits.

    The show itself is a bit of an assault. I pulled a face ive never pulled before. I was squinting because the lights are so bright but had my eyebrows raised in amazement, an expression previously thought impossible.

    @nickthegun I believe that face is known as a "Jaden Smith".

    Hah, yeah. Imagine Jaden from After Earth and thats the face youre going to pull for at least the first 20 minutes.

    Its genuinely the best live show ive ever seen, and I saw Pink Floyd during the tour where the stage collapsed.

    They are like clockwork now. Dead on 9PM they came on and finished at literally bang on 10.30PM.

    I suppose it does take a little of the spontaneity out of it, but as a spectacle, its fucking amazing.

    I was at that Brixton gig, but they really, really smashed it in Birmingham last night. Excellent mix of tunes - Trent even talked this time. Still did the walking off trick leaving everyone wondering what the hell was going on.

    What's this "bit too old" nonsense?

    Saw them last night in Cardiff. Blinder of a gig. First half was the more industrial/rockier tracks and they smashed it out the park. Only two tracks from HM which was fine.
    He's certainly not showing his age and long may that continue.

    Looking forward to Sunday night. Got box seats via work. They're far back but there's a mini bar to avoid queuing for the real bar.

    I'll make sure to flip off all the box seats then.

    In the 15 minutes before they came on, I was stood next to a group of goths who did nothing but moan about people up in the seats and ogle womens tits.

    Do goths still come in just two body sizes?

    I seem to recall most were either massively fat, or excessively skinny, there was never many who had a size inbetween, or has goth-dom changed?

    The support act hasn't started yet and my feet already hurt. I'm too old for this shit.

    And the quality of the recording speaks for itself. Just like everyone else with their phones.

    I hate that shit.

    I took one photo, after the show had finished. Thankfully there werent too many camera cunts near us, they all seemed to be congregated in the middle. And all the sad sacks in the seats seemed to be a professional production crew. The boring bastards all just sat there, filming it on their phones.

    That orange light they bathed us in near the end was glorious.

    Filming at concerts must die. This obsession with seeing the world through a lens is really irritating.

    There was one moron in front of us who was so drunk, he left his flash on, meaning all his video was worthless. The only thing he seemed to manage to film properly was the 10 minutes of footage he took of the girls arse in front of him.

    Then after he finished, he turned around to me laughing looking like he expected me to high five him or something.

    BTW, here's a good two-part behind-the-scenes film about how they put all the visuals together for the tour:




    Some of the visuals totally blew me away. The rotating lines/bars during Disappointed, especially.
