Any word on gate times? Working in a school has great holiday benefits but shit if you want a specific day off in term time.

If they open them quite early on the Friday then I wont be able to make it despite working a ten minute drive away. I can get out of work 3.15 earliest. So it looking more likely I can only do the Saturday.

I saw New Order play one song at a Commonwealth Games launch in St Peter's Square in Manchester, the same gig where one of my mates ruined Howard Donald's solo career.

Also to Rhub: this is going to change everything you thought you knew about music, but they're called liner notes. Don't worry, though, I misspelt dilemma as "dilemna" till I was about 20.

What a fucking waste of an hour. 150,000 tickets sold in 14 minutes.

All these people must have had a magic browser or something because I could barely get the fucking ticket retailing websites to load up never mind buy tickets.

It's just luck and hammering F5. I got tickets for Friday, but that's not what you want to hear.

Do you know an extra date has been added for the Sunday?

Well, Howard was one of the support acts, and though James and New Order would be playing just a song each, live on telly (Sit Down and Temptation, since you ask), he was allowed to sing a few. He began with a couple of self-penned numbers, including one called The Incidentals, which were met with mild applause by the home crowd. Growing in confidence, he asked fatefully: "Do you want to hear another one?" Matt considered this for a split-second, then yelled: "NO!", causing a huge laugh to ripple through the 10,000-strong crowd. Howard mumbled through a final number, muttered his goodbyes and departed, his solo career in tatters. I would feel guilty, but he hasn't done badly since. Also, it wasn't me that shouted.

The other comedy highlight was during the James song, for which we'd been asked to "spontaneously" sit down during the chorus. Everyone obeyed the dictat except one incredibly pissed guy in the middle of the square, who just stood there with his eyes shut, swaying from side to side. Still, the Commonwealth can't say we gave them a false picture of Manchester.

Aye, no luck there either.

Ticketmaster sucks balls. I was actually half way through the process of ordering my tickets once and then the website seemingly went down and I lost my order. I couldn't even get the page to load for 10 minutes after that.

Sorry to hear that. Hopefully they'll do some more dates. Still, at least the touts have made a lot of money ripping off people who want to go and see something they like.

Hopefully they'll announce an arena tour or summat to go along with the Heaton Park shows. I'll probably overpay someone on ebay for some tickets otherwise.

2 tickets nailed for Saturday at 9.40 My sister rang saying she could get on any website so I tried for her. Sat sold out (that was at 9.45), tried for Friday and entered all the details only to get told 'sold out' after clicking the buy now. Checked again 5 mins later and Sunday was on and managed to get 2 more.

3x 75000 people! Jesus. I like to think they'll do a tours final show at Manchester but thats just dreaming.

A friend just messaged me to say he managed to get 2 for Saturday but sell ons. He's refusing to tell me how much for.

I didn't even know he was trying for them. I'd taken it upon myself to order them for me and my mates because to be honest I wouldn't trust any of them to arrange a prayer session in a convent. Fair play, the flakiest one of the lot came through for us, unbelievable .

This should be a heartwarming TV drama. Or a 1990s Worthington's advert.

220,000 tickets sold in 68 minutes. The fastest selling rock gigs in UK history apparently.

Some sites were offering tickets for 125 each with a 42 booking fee.




Luckily managed to get two tickets for the Saturday.

I decided to wait til they play up here. There's chat about them doing T in The Park, so I could go just for that one day, as I did last year when Pulp and Weezer were both playing on the Sunday.

Just shy of a quarter of a million for 3 gigs. Just need to see how many others they'll do on the tour now.

I managed to get 2 tickets for the Sunday date at about 10:20am... but this was after almost an hour of being sat at the computer hitting F5 relentlessly whilst on ticketline, ticketmaster and gigsandtours. I finally got them through gigsandtours but ticketmaster was fucking useless, either crashing totally or managing to put the Sunday date up LATE, well after some of the other sites had sold out for it!!  I still have no confirmation e-mail but I do know the money has been taken and two tickets secured... so happy day at least!

What a fantastic night on Saturday. Right at the front, video on the phone of Ian Brown as he came down and walked right in front of us. Me and Mrs B had one heck of a night.

I went on Saturday and the place was rocking. Beady Eye were not quite as offensive as I anticipated, either.
I was surprised that they opened with 'Adored' and closed with 'Resurrection'. Who'd have thunk it?
