    Got two standing in presale this morning, also splurged yesterday on the double vinyl.

    Do you have to buy one of the fancy re-issues of the album to access the presale?

    No, you just had to sign up yesterday to get the code.

    Ticket sale for the unwashed is Friday.

    I couldn't get any in the pre-sale, I didn't even get as far as selecting a ticket, I tried on the phone and a browser.
    I'll just have to take my chances in the general sale Friday :(

    After seeing them do The Holy Bible and Everything Must Go tours it would be rude not to go to this. Might venture over the UK for one of those gigs either

    I still can't believe they skipped us on the Everything Must Go tour!

    Signed up yesterday got no code, they did send me an email to complete purchase of album though :o


  • Registered Users Posts: 865 ✭✭✭laros


    The mail with the code and link was in my spam folder in Gmail.... Have a look there

    And I cant believe that they didnt do Generation Terrorists and Gold Against the Soul 20th Anniversary gigs.

    The "Before We Went Mainstream" Tours 1 and 2;)

    That would've been amazing.

    When did they do the Holy Bible tour? I thought I'd seen them every time they play in Dublin.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,600 ✭✭✭✭MisterAnarchy


    If they play all of This is My Truth Tell Me Yours ,13 songs ,that only leaves room for about 7 other songs as the Manics rarely play over 90 minutes.
    Great band live but criminally short gigs .

    26 songs ,that's a very long set for them.

    I'm looking forward to hearing You're Tender And You're Tired and Black Dog on my Shoulder live.

    I was at their singles show in London. 38 songs!
    They needed an interval

    Same here. They play here every tour and then when they do one of my favourite albums they don't play here!

    Missed the pre-sale, here's hoping I can snare a couple in the morning. Not my favourite Manics album but some brilliant tunes on it. The organ on Ready For Drowning is amazing, I could listen to that all day. If You Tolerate This... gives me goosebumps every single time. You Stole The Sun...I just never got that one at all even though lots of people love it. Definitely a divisive album but you could say that about most of them probably.


  • Registered Users Posts: 865 ✭✭✭laros


    The year they first toured the album... They played the point with Super Furry Animals supporting.... It was the first gig I bought my son to... He was 7 year's old..... 20 years ago....ðŸ˜႒

    First set was amazing
    Then Donkeys in set 2 was such a buzz, took me back a long way.

    How much are tickets?

    Ideally seated as I’m gettin too old for standing lark.

    Big Manics fan back in the day. Saw them copious times. Witness, Slane and I think I saw in a smaller venue as well just can’t think where. Probably The Point.

    Agree. Very strange alright. Saw the Holy Bible in the Olympia last time and it was an amazing gig. Looking forward to this one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,736 ✭✭✭✭BPKS

    Middle of December 2014 in the Olympia.

    Holy Bible gig was brilliant - never thought I'd hear Of Walking Abortion live!
    This gig should be a lot mellower. Maybe they should skip SYMM :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,019 ✭✭✭Peter File


    We were only able to get upper circle for this.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 19,947 Mod ✭✭✭✭Weepsie


    I had 2 circle tickets and I cancelled. curses

    Circle is the best area for the Olympia to be fair.
