    I think there were just a few brakes, cuts and scratches, nothing too serious. The row that collapsed were right in front of us!

    scary.... but luckily no one was hurt....... So did you get to see them twice for free then???

    I can remember that when I saw Garbage in 1996 Wolvehampton, somebody went for a dive off the first floor balconey onto the crowd/floor...... they survived too.... although i think lot's of plaster and a wheel chair was involved in aiding their recovery!!

    Best crowd ever though...... Afro Celt Sound System, Glastonbury 1999..... dance, dance, dance.... till 2am.....

    Wicked!!

    an irish rock band... hard to describe... i bet you could find them easier over there (UK) than here.... album is called "grow"... don't think they're together anymore

    quite good in concert indeed. very energetic...

    the singer's voice takes some getting used to, as it's quite unique....

    songs that i've actually heard on tv or such:

    "skydiver"
    and
    "big big city"

    so you could probably find out something about them....

    The best gig I went to I had the most fun after it ended.

    The band sucked rat nuts live, but I had a blast with my friends after we all left.
