You should be fine. Big venue and it didn't sell out last time (although it got announced very late on that occasion).

Went to this venue t'other week to see some other Goff band from Leeds and in the thirty plus years I've been going to gigs it's the only time I have ever had to walk through an airport style metal detector to gain entry.

A sign of the times we live in I'm afraid. There are even reports of schools doing the same :(

I saw Eagles of Death Metal there nine days before the incident at the Bataclan, and another band a couple of weeks after. The latter was the first gig I'd ever been to there where they used them. But I think they were used for club nights before that.

Will be at the Bristol gig next week, it's my local!

Anyone have any ideas or be willing to ride share?
I don't see any late trains, but I'm hoping to wake up in London on 24/11 since I fly back to California on 25/11 and want a day there.

Happy to pay for gas if anyone has a spare seat. Drop me at any tube station!

Thanks, looking forward to it :) Anyone looking for somewhere to head beforehand, The Hatchet over the road is just the ticket.

Sound wasn't as good as last night but better performance and MUCH better atmosphere tonight in Bristol! Really enjoyed it.

Oooh.... I do hope they do it in Liverpool & Sheffield. I'd love to hear :von: "squawking like a pink monkey bird".

Really enjoyed that. Yep, he did take a tumble... I overheard a security bloke afterwards saying he slipped on the dry ice. Is that a thing? Does it make the stage wet?

Yeah, and "freak out, allround" ... ;D ...

It can become very slippery when it's a water-glycol-mixture ... especially when the liquid is spilled over the floor ...

oh hell. I keep all fingers crossed for :von: that he wakes up tomorrow without any painful injuries ...
