    Perfect, incredibly strong performance and I was stoked at how energetic the crowd were. Starla, Owata, Cherub and Zero <3.

    I also think the MEN gig wasn't that bad. It wasn't great but people just moaned and moaned about it, I had fun at the time, surely that's what counts! Bring on tonight.

    Maybe if you're the type of Pumpkins fan who wants Silverfuck, Bury Me and nothing else all set. They played Porcelina, Try, Stellar, Rose March and Drown for christ's sake! Shame you're not going tonight as it seems a very pre-Adore focused show at the minute.

    @StueUK, the criticism was probably due to them actually being awful! It wasn't just me who thought that either, many people were disillusioned by their performance. I don't know how you can call it a 'three hour celebration of every aspect of their music', 2 songs from 'Siamese Dream' and none from 'Gish' hardly qualifies it. The only saving graces were 'Drown', 'Mayonaise', and 'Today' the rest was poor at best. Here's hoping for better for you guys tonight.

    Never understood the criticism of the MEN gig, it was a three hour celebration of every aspect of their music. The only criticism I had was the venue itself, which is why I've been dreaming of them playing the Apollo again for years. Which is tomorrow. Fuck. Wouldn't mind swapping Silverfuck for Hummer though.

    StueUK has the right idea. 1979 as the set-closer would be amazing, though would like to hear BWBW; but then again it's more a guaranteed festival song. Would kill so much for Hear is No Why and Mayonaise.

    Wish I was going now i've seen the setlists. Last time they played at the M.E.N. they were bloody awful, hope they're back on form for all you guys in attendance :)

    Seriously?! We have Zero?! YEEAH!

    Looks like Zero has been added to the set! Swap BWBW for 1979 and we have a winner.

    They're sounding really loud and powerful on tour at the moment. Just check out Geek U.S.A on YouTube from LA.

    Setlist doesn't seem to have changed for Europe, bit worried that some people might get frustrated by that and leave a tense atmosphere but then again, people who are still big enough fans to pay a lot of money to see them are probably those who would prefer to hear Soma and Starla over 1979 and Today.

    But then again I was debating/worrying about what setlist Weezer would do when they played brixton in the summer and they pretty much played Blue/Pinkerton, so hopefully we'll get a similar thing with this setlist. I'll stop ranting on now

    We'll obv get new material and whatnot, but if we get most of Gish/Siamese, that would be epic
