BLUR LIVE- M.E.N ARENA - June 28th 2009 with The Klaxons supporting

Damon Albarn and Alex James

Alex James

Oh my! What a night Mark and I had last night! First we saw the fabulous Klaxons support the Mighty Blur and then Blur themselves. The M.E.N is a great venue and boy does it get crowded but we went early and managed to get really close to the bands. Blur were Fabulous, singing old classics such as 'There's no other way' and 'She is so high' to rip roaring newer hits like Coffee and TV and the belting 'Song 2'. Damon gave tribute to the late Michael Jackson expressing his sadness and concern over media speculation throughout the stars life.

The band seemed genuinely pleased to be back on stage together and didn't leave me feeling disappointed with their full two hour performance, including encore! One word... WOW!

Oasis and Kasabian live at Heaton Park Manchester Saturday 6th June 2009

Last weekend Mark and I were lucky enough to get tickets to go to the huge gig at Heaton Park in Manchester with Oasis headlining and support from Kasabian and the Emeny + a few other bands. The weather on the Saturday here in Manchester was awful. It rained constantly all day. (I wouldn't expect anything less for an out door gig in the North West!) After a massive dash to try and get some wellies (pretty much all of Manchester centre had sold out) we headed of to the gig.

To be totally honest I was more interested in seeing Kasabian. Both bands were awesome and the crowd were all pretty decent too. Here area few pics from the gig that Mark has taken He gave up taking them after a while as we couldn't hold pints of beer and take pics the the same time.
