Have just been let down by 2 mates for this gig on Friday...Don't like ebay so if anybody wants any ticks i'll let them go for below face value to a dedicated Boo/Martin fan..

Its at a small venue Camden Roundhouse Front Standing ...if interested give me a bell.. Pick up from me before gig..

i hope you find someone here who wants to go. if not, this website is set up for selling tickets at face value:
http://www.scarletmist.com/default.asp

looks like someone on there is after tickets, so hopefully you can get rid of them there. i used it once and it worked fine.

gillworm could be interested, but she has most likely got a ticket already... Razz I'll send her a message just in case.

I'm going home this Friday otherwise I'd have loved to have gone. I like the Roundhouse, it makes me feel like a cultured young man when I go there.

Barcelona were brilliant last night weren't they. Fergie was annoyingly gracious in defeat as well. Well done everybody.

Really enjoyed the show and with Morrissey cancelling his Brixton Gig I could have sold the tickets 50 x over....! Thanks for your help.. appreciated..

First time I had seen the Manics since 1991/ 92 when I went to see them at every opportunity following the release of "Motown Junk"..etc

Was a little strange watching them perform a Richey penned album 14 years after he dissapeared...and the band still have the most fervent following...queuing all day just to get to the front....!

If you liked The Holy Bible...buy the new album.

I actually think it sounds more like "Everything Must Go". Only the last song, "Bag Lady" sounds Bible-ish to me...

No it doesn't sound exactly The Holy Bible...but then I don't think it sounds like Everything...feel it's more of a "companion" to THB

I saw the manics in chicago last night and they were really good. First time they've been to the US in 10 years. The venue was the same place I saw the Boo's at back in '97. A great thing about living in America is you get to see these great british bands in small, intimate settings.

I think a lot of the places the Boos played here were 'small and intimate' too... Unfortunately.
