Default NME Big Gig Wembley

So, just curious about how long people think they will play when there are 3 support acts? Will it be a full show or not?
any guesses?

In 2009, The Cure played 23 songs.


Sooo probably around that amount.

Show starts at 18.30 so I am guessing a run time of

18.30-18.50 - No Age
19.15 - 19.45 - Band Of Horses
20.10 - 20.45 - CeLo Green
21.20 - 23.00 - Foo Fighters

This is going by what happened at previous NME big gigs.

23 songs!

edit: just in case anyone got confused by seetickets like me, the new mail today that tickets will be dispatched via mail to international customers as well was just confusion on their site - if you've agreed to do venue pick-up, you can still do so.

Will they allow you to take normal pocket cameras into the venue? I've never been to any gigs in the UK..

we'll be given the magazine after the show as we leave the venue....no doubt in a little white NME bag filled with other bits of advertisments and marketing leaflets etc. and maybe a lollipop.

Why didnt I wait for this I knew they would come back on sale - instead I panicked and ended up buying seating when the standing options were sold out!

Long shot I know but is anyone willing to swap a seating for standing ticket??

Also do you think we can expect to hear songs from Wasting Light or will it be a greatest hits set to appease the NME people?

Where's the best place to park for this? I usually drive straight up the m3 and park in Richmond and tube into London but not sure if that's best this time.
