  1. Wow, only 3 months yet so much has changed. Keane are no longer on the list, and neither are Faithless. Very difficult to choose between The Hives and The Music as well seeing as how I remembered an act that should have been near or at the top of my orignal list. Anyways: 1. Hope of the States (V Festival Staffs 2004, Manchester Academy 1 Oct 2004, Sheffield Leadmill Sep 2004, London Astoria Feb 2005) Have now seen them 4 times, and they just keep getting better and better. It's not just the music (which on it's own would be awesome) but the whole experience with the projections and the sheer enjoyment they seem to get out of it. 2. Rammstein (Nottingham Arena Feb 2005) While Hope of the States were clearly #1, Rammstein only just took number 2 - and that's definitely because of the show. The music's very good, but it's the whole show with the flames and the "acting" that makes them such a good live act. 3. Muse (V Festival Staffs 2004, Earls Court Dec 2004) Just missing second, although it's very very tight there. With Muse it's the music that makes the gig, as opposed to the performance as it is Rammstein. Still definitely owrthy of their two recent "Best Live Act" awards. 4. Metallica (Summer Sanitarium Orlando 2003, Leeds Festival 2003) This is on here probably more because of what it was than neccesarily for the quality. The chills I got down my spine - both times - when I heard the intro to Ecstacy of the Gold, made me get seriously into seeing live music. 5. The Hives (Leeds Festival 2004, Sheffield Octagon Sep 04) Just sneaking it ahead of The Music, who could easily have been here. the Hives just sneak it on performance which basically came down to the antics of Pelle (put your noodles in your pocket) Almqvist, and Nicholas Arson.
  2. I'll probably be if it actually happens - only place I've seen it mentioned is on the ents24 website. Nothing on either their official site or on the Fuzz Club site. Although that said I might not make it - Bloc Party the night before.
  3. Hell no, I've got pretty much all the ticket stubs from gigs I've been to - along with wristbands and such from festivals. Only one I don't think I've got is my Electric Six ticket, although one of my mates pulled out so I do have a fully intact ticket for that. Most annoying was when i didn't get to keep my Muse ticket from Earls Court. Only not got the stub back a few times though.
  4. On their website it says it's Chromeo.
  5. Definitely worth going to see, I saw them when they played the Leadmill in Sheffield back in November, and they were stunningly brilliant. Well worth their tippage for 2005, although I don't know how big they'll get in terms of long term success. Anyways I shall hopefully be seeing them support Hope of the States at the Astoria, tickets shall be obtained tomorrow.
  6. Leeds looks like being the big scene in 2005. Sheffield always seems to get missed off on UK tours - especially those with 6/7 dates - they'll usually hit Manchester, Leeds and Nottingham, and because Sheff's in the middle, it gets missed. Although the uni Fuzz Club can be very good - ie The Bees for £3.50 when every other date on their tour was £9.

    Anyone know how big it is in terms of capacity? I'm looking at going there in December and was just wondering what to expect, so obviously other details would be appreciated and stuff.

    I saw them when they played Sheffield about a week and a half ago. They were absolutely amazing, as wre the support - Pure Reason Revolution. Met most of the band after as well - all bar the singer and one of the keyboard players - and they were pretty damn cool.
