    Me and my friends reckon it's our favourite gig venue in Manchester after Soup Kitchen. To be fair I'm not that discerning when it comes to sound quality

    Yeah - wish I'd held off! Spent an hour on hold today with "AXS Ticketing" as my ticket hadn't shown up... :rolleyes:

    Do they all 'go missing' in the post, or what... anyway - they've now emailed one to me.

    They're going for £50 now..

    I was underwhelmed... by the Rolling Stones gig. Sound was pretty shite, set-list was slightly annoying. Yes - they should have played more 'purple patch' stuff. Why did Keith Richards sing two songs? :confused: Was I just in a bad mood.. :confused:

    On the other hand Liam Gallagher did a good support set.

    I'm pleased about that, I think. I really like AH whereas I'm distinctly meh about Academy. I feel like it probably fits the gig better too but I've never seen her live so can't be sure. Interested in the reasoning though - surely it's smaller?

    Aye, was a bit muddy I thought (upstairs centre) especially for the support band, but I don't know that I would have noticed as much had I not been primed.

    I have a similar issue with all the Trof venues (apart from the Deaf Institute, that's usually OK). I occasionally I'll let myself be beguiled by an enticing lineup, but have been let down by the sound more times than not.

    Report after please. I can't remember him ever playing near me, I'm sure I'd have seen him before.

    Really looking forward to it, Stony Hill is better than Welcome To Jamrock as an album, I reckon.
