When they kicked off on Saturday, they were absolutely steaming. And I mean the whole drunken bonding thing, rocking on the heels, shouting, bumping, swearing... The security guy gave them a warning before Fish's set and they quietened down for a few seconds. Then started up again! I challenged one of them after they picked on someone else in a black or dark t-shirt. He said, " I haven't come here for a fight mate." So I said, "well you are doing a bloody good job of doing exactly that, you've pissed everyone off around here."

By then they had tussled with 5 or 6 people, including two women who had come to stand right behind them. At one point the guy with the white mohican turned and just said, "This is your last warning...." This seemed to seep in slowly, and then they turned on him after another thwarted attempt to get in front of him. At this point I went to the right to get security and someone else went left. By the time I had made it back to my spot, security had got them out.

All this happening while Grendel stormed out ahead and with the Company Italy singing every word behind me. I loved the atmosphere when they'd gone, but before then, jeez!

When I saw the same two in the bar on Sunday I thought on no, but looks like they stepped over the mark again and hats off to security for getting them out.

I was stood to the left of you guys beside the lad who got the first security guy.amazing i went all that way and stood beside someone from up the road at sheffield.:)
The Company italy were amazing on sunday night they went potty during msh i ended bouncing around and dancing with them.very memorable.

The Security was really good. I turned around a little while after Security came over for the second time and the two Morons had gone, i think they got chucked out!!!

y must

Hello Paul. The Jag is Fine Mate. I got the Train home ok although i felt rough Monday morning, after we came out a load of us went into the Avenue Bar/Hotel as it was the only place still open. They must known we'd end up in there as they were playing Script when we walked in!!! I couldn't see you or Nige, i should have taken your Mobile in the morning. I am on Facebook Graham Warren from Margate, my Profile picture is me and a Mate about 24 Years ago standing next to a Girl. I've got a Clutching at Straws Tour T Shirt on, i was a lot slimmer in those days but you should be able to recognise me lol. I'll search for you as well. A re-union next year is a must, we'll have to sort something out when the Tour dates are released!!! :)
