There is a ticket being sold by Warchild on ebay. At the moment it's at £350 - why don't you treat yourself MBV?!! It's good to see non-touts making a killing for such a good cause.

I'm tempted to fly over for this one. Said my days of doing a 'cestrian' were behind me after the Stone Roses in Warrington and Elbow at The cathedral, but I might have to come out of retirement for this one. ;-)

Amazing show. Possibly the best setlist they've done in years. To be honest, the set was the sort of thing I was hoping for at the Apollo gigs but sadly that didn't happen. As with all these competition shows the place was a bit top heavy with people who were there just so they could say that they'd been there, rather than them being there because they're a die hard fan. Subsequently these idiots insist on chatting throughout the show and making repeat journeys to the bar, which just drives me mad. Had the room been filled with 200 people from this forum it would've been a perfect night.

I saw a girl advertising her spare ticket as her friend couldn't go. As soon as she confirmed that the ticket was mine I booked a flight and hotel.

Set was something like this.

This Blue World
Fugitive Motel
The Stops
Dear Friends
Great Expectations
Real Life (Angel)
Switching Off
My Sad Captains
Lippy Kids
Newborn
Grounds For Divorce
Scattered Black & Whites

I don't actually think setlists get much better than that - being VERY picky, I'd swap Grounds, Sad Captains & Lippy Kids for My Very Best, Red & Powder Blue !

Seriously, sounds fantastic.

Probably the very best Elbow gig I've been to. Everything was so stripped down and beautiful. I was completely blown away by Real Life (Angel).
Also, met †Mr Garvey for the first time last night which added to the greatness of it.
Great night for a great cause Very Happy

Great shout MeganCeri re Real Life live ; first heard it live in Liverpool last year and then the other week in Manchester ; melts me every time I hear it ; so glad you had a great night......we wandered in the Roadhouse after the Saturday Manchester Apollo gig recently, picturing how it would go !

Cestriansteve and MeganCeri thanks for sharing your memories of the (most amazing and unbelievable) night! I just can imagine your excitement then and now: I think I'll never be able to witness such a gig, with such a setlist, in such a special venue (though I treasure the concert in Florence as a good memory).
How smart is the choice of playing Dear Friends and Scattered Black & Whites as closing act in that place? This is one of the thing that I love the most: they are so accurate and dedicated to their music, to the meaning of it, and this care goes deep into you in a natural way, as when you are on the same wavelength with someone without any efforts... (sorry, I cannot explain this feeling very well in my language, just imagine in yours!).
Anyway, due to the venue, I would have added an acoustic version of Weather to Fly... but I'm a softie Smile

P.S.: MeganCeri, meeting Mr. Garvey puts a stupid never-ending smile on your face, doesn't it?

So cool that it was such a great gig. Loved the few clips I heard of Grounds - the acoustic version with the harmonica is one of my absolute favorites.

You lucky lucky people to get a ticket for this gig! They played 'The Stops' too, one of my favourites. Nice to see a Forum representative present at such a special one off night. Very Happy
