'At any given time there will be upwards of 35 people onstage!!'

So yes, well, where were we? Australia!!  

Where are we now? Manchester!!

First night of this arena tour. I used to really, really, love doing arena tours. I loved the feel and the sound and the space, etc., etc... Gotta say after the production rehearsals last night AND after doing theatres since October last year I'm not so sure I do anymore. It all seems too big, too loud, too fucking cold!! I'm sure I'll get used to it though. Bit of a shock how much you forget, eh?

Got a right firm of people on the road with me. At any given time there will be upwards of 35 people onstage!! The introductions might take a while. I don't know anyone's name yet, and probably won't even at the end.

Looking forward to it though. It'll be fly by the seat of your pants gear, but exciting none the same... We shall see, eh?

ONWARDS.

GD.

I agree that a smaller venue may have been better as the music is rather subdued. Overall, I came away feeling disappointed. I didn't like hearing so many Oasis songs without there being an "Oasis", and I just felt the whole thing lacked a bit of excitement, so I left early. I can't remember ever doing that, sorry Noel:(

I missed out on the Apollo ticket and eventhough it was a great gig at the MEN I would much sooner see Noel play smaller venues and be able to see him and not keep looking at a screen or a glims of him in the distance . The Apollo in Manchester has to be one of the best,seen so many top bands play there and I was lucky enough to get a front row seat when Noel and Gem played at the Loweryinfrtont of 200 people ,it was Amazing,dosen't get much better than that !!!

it was AMAZING, wish i was going to Sheffield tonight aswell, we bought the MEN tickets before the Sheffield one's were announced, cos that would have been the nearest place, in the end i'm glad we saw you in your hometown. x

Pure class it was a great gig, one of the best ever, Manchester took a while to warm up but I think we were all just soaking it up. Loved the choir! Goosebumps all round for don't look back in anger! Noel was a bit quiet at the beginning but the music spoke for itself. Mario Mario! :))

If you don't like arena tours then stop, saving us £50 f***ing quid a pop in the process!!! Theatre gigs are much better anyway.
