Mini Review: Manic Street Preachers' at Glasgow's O2 Academy, 29th Sept 2010

Monday, 4 October 2010

The Manics gig was probably the most wild gig I've gone to for awhile. Of course, it was partly my fault for having to be right in the front, but the opener, "Sleepflower", turned the crowd into chaos (which was oddly fun, I admit).

For being the first gig on a long list of UK tour dates, I thought they were in top form. I can honestly say it was one of the best gigs I have ever been to!

Best bits include Nicky Wire introducing "Motown Junk" before "Hazelton Avenue" (he later apologized, blaming being sober for fucking everything up, ha), dedicating "You Love Us" to Richey Edwards, the crowd singing along to "You Stole the Sun from My Heart" and James complimenting us on our vocals(!) and James' debuting the acoustic version of "Stay Beautiful", which you can watch below:
