Default O2 - from up on high!

Had a good time on Sat, but have to say it was well wierd being up near the ceiling looking down on all you Loonies at the front of the 'mosh pit'! Felt a bit disconnected up there, and definitely suffered from vertigo! (very raked!) But still enjoyed it, and I'm not sure i could have managed the standing up bit! Good gig played by the boys, and Eddie was fab too!

Obviously pics were a bit interesting!

Great pictures there K. It's a wonderful venue. It's an incredible buzz to look out to a crowd like that. And when they were all singing it was thunderous. You can't really argue with that photograph. The place was packed.

As we were driving into the gig I got a buzz that I haven't had for years. Seeing all those giant screens round the entrances with our names and faces on it. And seeing all those people moving about going to see US, gave me a little jolt of excitement. The kind you get when you are doing a SPECIAL gig. Like years ago when we sold out Madison Square Garden, or doing the Hollywood Bowl last year. Prestige shows that, when they succeed, are really satisfying to play.

I was thinking, those seats were filed by the time the band were on. You monkeys missed a great performance, by Eddy Grant, Tang. Still you swung in time to see UBs.
