NEC Gig Live

The extended version of Assassin that Muse played at M.E.N is available for download. Far better than the album version

Oh... and what a concert

Many thanks for that find! :tu:

A full hour of the NEC live show...top quality stuff. Couldn`t find the 'assassin' download you mentioned.

'knights of Cydonia'...probably THE best ending to a show i`ve seen. The whole of the MEN was absolutely bouncing during the BIG guitar ending bit! B)

I'm a big fan of Damien Rice as well! Been listening to his music since the 'O' album was launced a couple of years ago...will try to get tickets for the gig in manchester in february. its sold out atm, but I think it might be moved to a bigger venue.

Iron Maiden at the SECC on Saturday. Can't wait. :) I've just about got used to the idea that they'll be playing the entire new album from beginning to end at the expense of, well, a lot of other tracks. So long as I get to see them at Sweden Rock or Wacken Open Air during the summer when they're back to playing the classics I'll be happy.

Good going, Matt, I wish I'd delayed the Ten album twelve years too - just makes it even better doesn't it? ;)

Re: Robert Plant - does anyone know what projects Jimmy Page has going on, or what projects post-LZ is worth downloading?

Maiden tommorow (thursday) night at the MEN for me. Cant wait.I'm not overly bothered about the playing of the whole album as since I last commented on it more or less all the tracks have grown on me (except Different World and The Pilgrim.)

Enjoyed last night but felt it was good rather than great, mainly due to our seating location. We were sat back in the top tier looking side on at the stage. You could see the band on the stage but not see any of the set or of the backdrops. It was like they were playing on a stage surrounded by wires and rigging. Lack of atmosphere that high up also.

On a plus point, musically they were superb as to be expected. Took a couple of songs to get the balance on the vocals right but this was soon sorted and the new album sounded really good live as did the classics including thankfully the eternally awesome Hallowed Be Thy name. Quite a few people who didnt know the set list grumbled at the decision to play the entire album.

If, as rumoured, they do return soon playing their mid 80's stuff (Powerlave through to 7th Son) I'll definately see them again, just in the lower tier and a bit further round next time.

Did I say Saturday? I meant Friday. They played Glasgow last night and were fantastic. The new album really is a strong one, and while I don't think playing the whole thing was a great idea, it came off perfectly. I'd rather they dropped 2 Minutes to Midnight out of the encores in favour of something else, but nothing to complain about overall. At least they didn't close on Run to the Bloody Hills again and I'm really glad The Evil That Men Do got an airing.

You didn't miss too much with the stage set, it was a lot more toned down than usual. A couple of dummy soldiers, a pair of spotlights and a backdrop that changed a couple of times.

Did you at manage to see the two Eddies?

Seen Iron Maiden 5 times, Preston 1983 being the 1st time & Donnington 1988 (i think? :huh: ) being the last. I decided back in 88 it`d be my last maiden concert. Good to see they`re still gigging tho.

Saw Snow patrol at the G-mex on Thursday. Not as good a gig as at the MEN, but still a decent night. The mighty Elbow were one of the support acts, although i missed the openers & half the elbow set, due to getting stuck in Manchester traffic....which was chaos! :(
