Just a quick question, does anyone know at the two shows so far if there has been a golden circle like at Milton Keynes Bowl/Hyde Park? Just wondering if it is worth getting in early enough to get a wristband that gets you in this section.

Also does anyone have any better pictures of merch than the Sunderland one?

Nope, although it looks like there may be one at Slane. I started queuing at 8am & got to the front at Manchester.

Hi - new here, although not a new fan - nice to meet you folks. Just decided to join after being at Sunderland on Monday night. It was a great night with one of the best atmospheres of any gig I've been to, large or small. I loved the set list - including the covers! Never expected "But Honestly" so that was a lovely surprise and it worked brilliantly too. Although not always my favourite Foo track, I thought Best of You worked really well as the closer - it ended up being very atmospheric with the new-style breakdown in the middle and everyone loves to sing along after all!

Sounds like Manchester went down a storm too (no pun about the rain intended). Hope everyone enjoys the upcoming gigs.

My first gig last night, jez it was cold my bones still even feel cold. I loved every single minute. I think Dave Grohl is a brilliant up front man. I had the best night ever. The organisation by the cricket ground was awful though.

They really needed a golden circle to take some pressure off the front.I couldn't get warm for hours after the show.

I think I saw you queuing up in Manchester! It was such a good gig. A bit of a mess up opening the gates but we managed side barrier! Sad that it's my only date of the tour! I did get a bit emosh during the gig!

To be fair, golden circle or not, the front is pretty much always going to be crazy. The ego runway split helps as much as a circle would do.

I had a good night in Manchester. Not as close as I would have liked to have been but my friend didn't feel up to being any closer to the crush so we were Good way back from the front. Then the worlds tallest man - or so it seemed at the time stood infront of me and I couldn't see the stage at all and ended up watching the big screens.

I was spoiled with a perfect view from the barrier at Reading so I could cope with being a bit further back.

I didn't like the covers section but my friend who would fall into the casual fan caterogy loved it. I understand why they did it and can appreciate it but I can see covers band at a local bar for a small cost. I did not take a day off and spend a small fortune on organising transport to hear covers.
