Simple really, hang around by the backstage exit(s) after the gig and hope for the best. Without a backstage pass, you don't really have any other way.

I'll have a go but the risk of missing the last train home is quite a large one.
Hay ho.

Since I'm living in London at Uni at the moment, I am thinking about making the most of it and going really early, would there actually be any point in this do you think?

We got to Pompey really early and watched the back entracne from the comfort of the pub opposite. They didn't do thier own sound check, but were expected to arrive about 4.30....they were really late though and didn't come out and say hi as we were told they didn't have time. After the gig we waited about 2 hours for them to come out and in the end they just got on the bus and left without coming out - so it's a gamble...if they're not running late, and you are prepared to wiat around in the cold it might be worth it, but there's no guarantee they'll be up for saying hi.

Sorry, quick spam for this thread:

I seem to have a spare ticket for Thursday's Hammersmith show if anyone's interested. Cost + fees only = 38.

If you're interested please PM me, the only condition is that you come meet me in line by 6.30, earlier if possible - will be there pretty early!

Cheers,
SFK
