“For years and years the worst thing to happen in Manchester were the murders by Brady and hindley, but something much worse happened, this song is called Bonfire of Teenagers…’ (into BoT).

Loving this song & so wanted to hear him sing it live tonight.

Can’t wait to hear the studio recording. The piano is lovely & the repeated guitar line at the end is sublime.

Encore is….

Greatly appreciated Neal
Huge gap to the stage meant no invasions, and I'm not sure anyone on the barrier even managed a handshake. Moz tried a few times but just couldn't reach, and mouthed 'sorry' at us.
I’m currently in bed drifting in & out of intermittent sickness sleep when I should really be at this gig.

I was really happy that I managed to book tonight off work & nab a ticket at face value on Sunday evening…at about the same time I started to feel my throat getting a little sore…

The past couple of days I felt gradually worse and then today, I awoke from a 12 hour sleep feeling like a reheated corpse.

Even up to the last couple of hours I was making myself dinner & forcing myself into the shower, attempting to gear myself up to head to the gig, but even listening to a podcast makes my throbbing skull ache so there’s no way I could stand in a crowd of people being blasted with extremely loud live music.

Absolutely gutted. I was so looking forward to hearing him sing so many of my favourite songs tonight…& with Alain back in the band; just as he was when I first saw Moz back in ‘91 & ‘92.

Anyway, I just hope the new album really is coming out soon & that he’ll tour again to promote it, playing a similar set-list in similar-sized venues.

I even thought about just turning up near the end of the set & entering the venue just in time to hear him play Please, Please, Please… but my poor head & body are not supporting this idea.

I hope everyone who attended tonight had a great gig & that plenty of pics & videos will be shared here…
O no, That's so disappointing for you. Hope you feel better soon.
Glad to hear another great concert.
Bit of shame that he's stopped playing 'I Live In Bolivia' though.
It's miles better than the telephone song.

I Live in Oblivion is a great new song but I also really like Sure Enough, the Telephone Rings. It’s punky & catchy. Sure, the lyrics are a bit basic & repetitive, & the song doesn’t go anywhere, but it’s a great blast of energy that doesn’t out-stay it’s welcome.

In fact, I see promise in all of the new songs & can’t wait to hear the album.

I Am Veronica is the one I feel least compelled to listen to, for some reason. Apart from the catchiness of the way the title is sung, it just leaves me a bit cold; the lyrics aren’t direct enough, & when he reaches the bit about fish & dolphins, or whatever, I’m just thinking “what are you talking about, Moz? This is a song about a prostitute, right?”
