I got tickets this morning, I'm so excited!! why they are only playing one date I don't know, they have added extra dates in Germany which could just have easily been added to the uk instead! it is the same week as Reading and Leeds though so maybe that was a factor. xx

You could book train / national express tickets way in advance and stay in a youth hostel for the night?

Stalls standing is standing right in front of the stage.
The Circle is like a large balcony at the back; there are seats but you're not allocated one, so you could stand.

Stalls standing is the best choice, way more energetic :)

i saw them twice at brixton on the last tour and each night i waited outside by there bus for over two hours and they never came out to see anyone! to be fair, on the second night dexter got hit by a shoe during the last song and seemed a bit annoyed! im determined to catch them this time though!

ive never tried meeting a band before the show as you never know when they will turn up. i guess you can find out what time the venue opens to them but it will still turn out to be a very long wait until the general doors open to the public. i will probably end up trying to catch them after the show!

theres only two main entrances they will probably use and they are both accessible to the general public rather than being sectioned off behind fences!

Oh my god exactly the same story here! My cousin gave me all their albums for my 13th birthday and they really were the first band I ever properly got into.

AMAZING set. I somehow ended up right at the front in the center. Couldn't really have asked for much more (except maybe Genocide and The Meaning Of Life). Gone Away was so moving, I actually cried.
