Don't know if this is the right place for this. If not apologies. I have 3 tickets for the Norwich gig available if anyone is interested.

I will certainly try for Palladium tickets :)
When do you hit London?
I'll be in London from Feb 5 to April 25, which is when my semester ends. I'm so glad they announced dates for April, as I was afraid I'd be gone before I got the chance to see them!
And I got a ticket for Row H on the left side of the stalls (or whatever the front is called.) The first ticket I had was better, but I ran out of time due to complications with my debit card. Glad I managed to still grab a pretty good ticket!
Also grabbed a standing ticket for Liverpool -- was much easier getting tickets for there than London, it was madness getting tickets for the Palladium. Hope to see some of you there! It would be cool if some of the forum folk met up beforehand; that's one thing I like about seated tickets compared to GA tickets, I don't have to stand in line for hours trying to get at the front! :)
I'm in Palladium stalls row G (seats 39 & 40) so we may be close - but in any case I'll liaise nearer the time re hooking up :)
I'm also going to Norwich the week before - anyone here going?
aldamasta I've sent you a PM re meeting up :)

There was also a video stream which I can't watch because I'm not in England.... would anyone care to rip it for a yank in need? :D

The Good, The Bad and The Queen concert in Sheffield has been moved from The Octagon Centre to Foundry (smaller venue, right?).

Queuing outside Cardiff. Probably no more than 100 people.

Fantastic gig in Cardiff last night. Played whole of Merrie Land straight through, then hows this for an encore, the whole of the first album. They were in fine form. Damon was in his full on Blur mode, all over the stage, and off into the pit numerous times, with Smoggy chasing after him. I was at the front so couldn't tell how full the room was, but Damon did make reference to the fact we GBTQ fans are a rather a 'select' group. Personally I love the fact that each of his groups cater for different sizes and variations in fans and I can occasionally get to see him play in relatively small venues that don't even sell out.
Then to top it off, I hung around outside afterwards for an hour by the tourbus with about 30 others, and managed to get a photo with both Damon and Paul.

Thats pretty amazing to get the whole of the debut thrown in as an encore!

It seems that Norwich setlist was longer but even there they did not play the whole debut.

^^ that's right - Northern Whale is missing. I managed to speak to Paul after the Norwich show - I said NW was one of my favourites and he said that I wasn't the only one routing for it! They have rehearsed it and he very much hoped it would get into the setlist for the Palladium this Friday. Here's hoping... :)

Norwich was a fab gig - I drove up from London with aldamasta. The band was on top form, lots of chat with the audience, plus the cowboy hat incident! aldamasta was beside himself with joy to be able to chat to both Damon and Paul after the show - he'd been chasing for a Damon one-to-one for years!

Photos and videos to follow later today...
