Got tickets to see the Rolling Stones at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford in May via the presale (which while not perfect still worked a hell of a lot better than the U2 ones) - would have preferred a show at the weekend rather than on a Tuesday night but I'm happy enough. Just hoping the main support is better than the last time I saw them (The Vaccines).

I enjoyed the FF show more than the Suggs one, but both were good (Suggs is more of a one man show telling anecdotes and singing a few Madness songs between them than a proper concert) FF had ones of the best audiences I've seen in attendance at a gig in recent years, no drunken fools, no one pushing and shoving their way to the front, or moshing into people regardless.

Agreed. I've been to an FF gig last summer and the crowd was indeed really nice. And the new album is maybe not their best but still pretty good.

Right. Thanks! I'm actually tempted to get the DVD as I like one man shows a lot as well. Was it funny?

Wouldn't say it was hilarious, but then humour is a matter of personal taste - I thought it was funny without howling with laughter like some of the people sat around me were.

Going to 3 U2 shows in May, 2 Radiohead shows in July, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats in June, and Justin Timberlake in December...the last one is for a friends birthday and normally I would not even consider going.  :D

I'm still thinking about seeing Smashing Pumpkins and Live (Counting Crows is headlining).
