Isaac Theatre Royal is a little under 1300 as well...

Would be worth it just to hear Billy Duffy and his Friedmans. He has a phenomenally good sound.

I met a Welshman in the early 2000s who roadied for them way back when. He sent me a hard to find original demo of Love Removal Machine. Recorded by Love producer Steve Brown before Rick Rubin's recorded version on Electric was interpolated with Start Me Up.

I went to upload it online for you all to find that someone already has.

Was thinking this was an odd choice, Powerstation would be a better option.

Totally! Seated shows don't have the same vibe to me.

Bruce Mason is seated? Wow, that's not something I would have picked for a Cult gig.

I'd actually think twice about going if it's seated, would kind of kill the vibe for me.

Nah you get to be up the front without being crushed and pushed around by sweaty fat blokes, which for me kills the vibe massively!!

I saw Peter Hook in Welly a few weeks ago, a fairly big portion of the downstairs audience got up and danced up the front for most of the show. Not sure how people who paid for seats up the front would have felt about that!?

I wouldn’t be that keen after reading this review from a few years back. Hope things are better next time.

They keep telling me tone is in the fingers, but I have yet to see a "look at my fingers" thread.

Doubtful. It's why I typically give zero shits about seeing these tribute acts.
