Hi Emulator. I think I finally got up to dance about the 3rd or 4th song. Couldnt hold back any longer. Kept looking round to see if anyone else was getting up to dance, but it seems the management had super glued everyone's bums to their seats.I just had to get up and dance, so apologies to anyone who's view I blocked!!!

Hi Annis. I knew my friend had bought seated tickets but I wasn't prepared for the INERTIA that I felt was apparent up in the circle and which seemed to be enforced by the management. I was actually annoyed with myself afterwards for not getting up to dance as I didn't want to cause a scene for my friends! I gather that the City Hall stages a good few classical recitals: fair enough but it doesn't seem to understand that people want to get up to dance to danceable music!

Suffice to say, I shall be having words with myself and will rectify the non-dancing situation in the smoke very soon!

Agreed with what's already been said regarding the crowd, I was on the second row and was itching to get up as usually this spurs other people on but given that a few people had been stood up since the beginning and this hadn't had any effect I'd have just ended up looking like a bit of a tit! Did get up along with the majority around One Small Day, and stayed stood up despite most getting back down for Your Name, lazy people. I don't get why some people go to a gig to sit down, spoils it for me. Anyway, moaning aside the band were FANTASTIC! The sound was excellent and they all seemed to be enjoying themselves which was great. Managed to share a laugh with Warren during One Small Day too, he was probably amused that a brace faced teenager knew all the words. laugh Can't wait for Tuesday now!

Yes, it was nice to meet up with Annis and the others before the gig, but had she not spotted me, i wouldn't have had a clue whw was who!! As for getting up at the gig, i felt uneasy at getting up first. I was in row B and as a bloke of six feet plus and of large build, i would'nt have been popular!!

Next time Vox or Midge plays, we should meet up at The Museum pub, which was next door to bar one, better , cheaper beer and more friendly atmosphere, or if we just wanna get together when the summer comes it'd be cool, and i'm sure we can get the DJ in the Reflex bar to play some Ultravox!! xxxx woohoo
