That's a fkn bummer mate, you should be auto-guestlisted whenever and wherever necessary. Dear Anyone from the touring party reading this, guestlist Lee immediately please, it is right and proper.
There is increasing evidence to suggest that Chris may have been being sarcastic.

Hi, I have 2 spare tix from alt.tickets for tomorrow for The Girls at The City 19.11.23.
Price is 42.06 each, (which is 36.50 face value + 5.56 for the blood sucking scammers).
For anyone interested, there is also a reserved twin room in the Ibis at Fletcher Gate, for 45, but you can take or leave that.
I will be traveling from Manc to Notts sometime after midday, as the hotel lets us in at 3PM.
You can whatsapp me at +33648547395 or facebook me at timothy.shannon@facebook.com or here.
Cheers,
Tim

Was just talking with Don, Andrew & Simon, that's where we're heading for too.

Based on the clips I’ve been sent, yes there was more live saxophone. Sounded fantastic.

Anyway, same setlist as previous, very good sound, Duncan Kilburn made his guest appearance, and we got an extended bit at the end of Lucretia that I haven't seen anyone mention before, so maybe it was new. Von in a good mood, Ben and Kai giving it everything, Chris doing the Kraftwerk bit. Best I've seen them on this tour, and probably for a long time.

Really? In Newcastle the setlist apparently consisted of only 17 tracks without an encore break ... but perhaps that's also wrong ... :?: ...

Anyway, the return of the saxophone parts ... oh you lucky folks ... ;D ;D ;D ... hopefully some videos or recordings turn up from these events ...

Yep, absolutely top gig. Von in good voice, band in great spirits, and I'm so glad I got to hear the sax. Was convinced it would be a one off. Roll on Glasgow!

Very exiting stuff. That sounds wicked!
