If my news is correct, the bomber waited outside the exit and was not in the concert.

What's your point? Most people like to get into a venue, stay and enjoy the gig and then exit the venue without getting blown up?

The point was he evaded security. It is a very important distinction. He didn't actually attend the concert so therefore did things quite devilishly.

I went to see radiohead in Manchester on Tuesday and the security was really tight. Took over an hour to get in and there was a lot of police about. Even police on horseback.

I'd expect long queues to get in before Noel starts. I reckon 95% of people going will wanna see Noel aswell. So it's not like a normal support act. Everyone's gonna turn up at the same time

I think by now all of you know how these conversations can go. A single statement can lead to an avalanche. Truth isÖ I think itís all worth discussing, but *how* itís discussed is why we donít want it here.

I really hope that everyone has a safe night at the gig. You all know what to look for, so just stay aware of your surroundings, and donít forget to pay attention to the eyes.

Reckon you're right about Noel, i certainly don't want to miss his set.

They actually were having special theme glasses Tonite for beer drinkers and everyone and their gran were stealing them after the show. Most people had at least 5 each.
