My ex-bird is sorting me out with vip tickets to global gathering for free, which is a brucey bonus
you live in manchester and go to uni in leeds, why go to reading? just go to leeds.

I've done Leeds before. Wanna go to reading. I know they are similar, but i got a few friends from uni going reading.

Probably will input the name on the ticket? Unless its a picture i cant see it making any difference, you've seen how busy it is at the ticket/wrist band exchange. Wont make a difference i dont think.

i think it means you have to take foto id, then when you buy the tickets they might somehow put your name on them and then when you turn up, the person who bought the ticket must be present with the id the same as the name to get them and the other person in.

those sort of things have a habit of being better when there isnt the big hitters you really want to see, usually the shock moments from people you never rated before make it all the better. i do hope so anyway for your lots sake.

Its not about the bands anyway, more about the occasion but you're right, theres been a fair few times when someone i thought were pants stepped up.
Would like to see Metallica actually.

Actually maybe not, seems they have buggered up the site and got reading and leeds confused since it says you get reading tickets at northern HMV's and Leeds from Southern ones

sorry it should had read: i doubt that will be the lineup cos that looks like a bit good imo, Yoda, Justice, an emo's heaven with slipknot etc…

It is obviously catered for the NME fanboys Smiling

Thats the latest version thats been doing the rounds….

Will i be seeing you in Staines on tuesday morning homer Laughing out loud
