    They peaked in the Origin and Absolution days, since then they've been more reliant on special effects and the stage production than their actual performance.
    Could not agree more. I've only been into them since back end of BH&R and TR and managed to see them 3 times, the arena tour, stadium show and Reading last year. Reading was by far the best not just because of OoS but it was them, the OoS aerials and a giant screen and it all worked really well instead of the towers or the big pyramid building thing. Have you not got tickets for this tour then?

    LOL what?!
    Watch the DVD of them at Glastonbury 2004. IMO their best live performance.

    I caught them first at Earls Court in 2004 (you can see some of it in the bonus content on the Glastonbury DVD you mentioned) and it was just a different level. They had so much more energy back then and their equipment wasn't so expensive that they couldn't smash it every gig! These days its more "we have to stand in these positions for these songs, we have to wait for the screens to sync up before we start playing the next song, we have to play the songs exactly like they sound on the album" etc. My major complaint is that these days the live show is too scripted and often stale as a result. You occasionally see glimpses of these past glories when they deviate from the script a bit and aren't so restricted by the stage production and play some of their older and less technical songs, but its quite hit and miss now.

    Anyway to answer your other question I don't know, as I haven't received either a confirmation nor a rejection email yet! I'm guessing not.

    Damnit, didn't get a ticket. Looks like I'll be dragging myself out of bed at 9am tomorrow, hungover, to get this one sorted. :unimpressed:

    It's ok, we can do it. Where are you looking to go? I'm looking at the second london date so it's going to be hard to do but I'm feeling confident.

    I think Brum should be a bit easier so I'm sure you'll be fine. Brum's my reserve - I just want the Saturday as I don't know where I'll be living/working at that point.

    Indeed! We'll have to see. There's always the possibility that even if I did get a Brum ticket I wouldn't be able to go. I hate not knowing what's going to happen in the future!

    I just got my ticket for london on 27th. Went into a queue and then on first refresh got straight through... I was pretty shocked! Probably the easiest ticket I've ever got!

    Have you got yours yet?

    Is that via the random allocation through pre-sale? Because can't seem to buy on ticketmaster/see tickets yet

    Some people who failed the lottery got another presale link for 9am ahead of the 10am general sale. Doesn't seem many got lucky this time either (though I did :cool:).
