Hi . I love this site, thanks for posting all that you do. I am disappointed regarding the Holy Bible dates. Do you think this is the whole tour, or do you think more dates will be added? I thought they were going to play Wales, the United States, etc.
Hello, thank you for saying you liked the site. I try my best ;)
As for the Holy Bible gigs: I know as much as you do. Today’s announcement is the tour. If it goes well, they might tour Europe or the States, but I have no insider knowledge whatsoever. They are going on hiatus after this, but I have a sneaky suspicion they will do the odd Euro festival.
@Manics at BBC Maida Vale studios for the BBC Radio 4 Mastertapes recording.
There were lots of nice insights, which I’ll keep to myself as I don’t want to spoil the transmission for you in mid November.
All the band had something to say, it’s always a pleasure to hear Sean speak, even if he does look fierce in that last picture.
Too bad more fans couldn’t attend from what I’ve heard. Too many bored privileged industry types right?
Nope, you’re quite wrong, the guest list was about 10 people long, 95% of the audience were winners (150 people in the audience). I saw the length of the queue outside. Industry insiders don’t have to queue.
There were even a handful of seats left at the back.
When you hear the applause for the band on the recording, you’ll hear that no one was bored. Honestly.
