Nice work. We're they giving out wristbands at the gate or did you have to head inside to the pit?

Assume you're now good to come and go as you please now?

Trying to get there as early as at can tomorrow but realistically won't be until 3pm as have kids to sort out first.

Have fun tonight.

It would be good to know where you physically get the wrist bands. Is it a case of walking to the front stage area for them or are they given out at the turtstiles.

Thank you. I love the music. Love the renamed foods and drinks, but itís not like last year. Last year seemed bigger and better but I didnít get to go. Oh well Iím sat there with a pint. Good times. How was tonight for all those that went? I heard a few songs earlier; heard Best of You, Dirty Water which sounded awesome! And Sunday Rain, plus a few others. I canít wait for tomorrow.

If Iíd have known, I would have walked by and said hi. The moment I first heard them outside I was like wow again. On a different level to anyone else.

I talked to the merch guys at the bridge. Posters were supposed to arrive around 3pm, but got postponed to 4 pm, then they didn't show up either and they got them somewhere between 5 and 7. They are limited to 400 and the merch booth at the bridge got a batch of 100.

They said it might end up being the same for tomorrow's poster.

The pop up shop got a batch of Gold/Glitter on black prints of the "Foo Fighters over London" logo right before they closed at 9pm, limited to 200. Thus, they only sold a few. So early birds at the pop up shop might score them for 25£.

What a night! Legs and voice are long gone

Was about 4 from the barrier, they let those at Turnstile L in first which was thankfully us. Don't know if it will be the same for those going tomorrow!

Finally home and fed and watered. Great night, still waiting to get my hearing back.

Managed to get into the golden circle despite arriving around 3.45pm and queuing at J. Lots of booing when L got let into the stadium floor first, but glad I legged it to the front. Decided to stand at the back of the circle and got a very good view of the stage, but think I’ll be aiming for the barrier tomorrow

Hi all this is my first post here, so apologies for any mistakes! What would everyone recommend doing for the show tomorrow? We'd like to do the same, and just be near the back of the circle, but I'm finding it really hard to figure out when to get there. At least at MK you could show up around 10am, get your wristband then bugger off to a pub somewhere! When/where did they actually hand out the golden circle wristbands? We're bridge 2, turnstile H. Can't wait!

got home by half 11.

a day of two halves...

the organisation by the stadium staff was non existent, apparently there was people being directed to a certain bridge if they were early... yet if that was the case then there was still people waiting at other bridges without knowledge of that.

then when they opened the gates onto the stadium island itself, that was a joke, not wristbanding people for the standing area.

losing a t-shirt in the process of getting to a gate... enjoy it whoever found it

then the bullshit of getting to the pitch to try and get into the gold circle.

after that everything was good.

Nice to meet a lot of you - I will be around at some point tomorrow but doubt I will get into the pit again - just because of the time that I will probably arrive (bloody work).

Was nice being meters from the stage and having that much room
