    Yeah, I should be there. Tickets go on sale when I'm in Manchester for Muse though. GAH.

    Gah, do you think this will sell out right away? I'll be in Manchester on Friday morning and probably won't be able to get online until the afternoon.

    A friend of mine has just brought this to my attention. Thinking of attending! I'll be going to Leeds and Reading afterwards, not sure if this is overkill :\

    I'll be attending too. A headline gig is nice, hoping a long set
    Happy to see AIWYFA live again too...

    There's a VIP ticket option. Was that there when the tickets when on sale?

    I'll be flying over from Edinburgh, if anyone could suggest some cheap, nearby accommodation let me know. I'm not adverse to staying in hostels.... I can slum it!

    Yeah, don't bother with the VIP. It's a sectioned-off part that runs down the left of the stage area. If you want a "good" position then just stick to regular tickets.

    I can't thank you enough for the response. I have a GA ticket but have been looking for a VIP one for a few days. Would much rather experience the show head on. Cheers!

    If you're still looking for accommodation, I went for The Linen House hostel (http://www.belfasthostel.com/). It's about five streets away from Custom House Square.

    Just noticed this on Belsonic facebook:

    "Dublin Rockers The Minutes to open for Nine Inch Nails and And So I Watch You From Afar at Belsonic on Weds 21st Aug!
    If you haven't got a ticket for this yet and want to go, we advise buying soon. Tickets available from belsonic.com, Ticketmaster and The Kitten Bar, Belfast."

    It's confirmed on The Minutes' Facebook page. They sound... average. I'd only heard of them before because they were playing at the venue where I do my music course in December last year.

    I meant to mention it when I booked it two weeks ago, but I forgot. My apologies. Belfast is a pretty expensive place when it comes to accommodation, for some reason.

    i'm seriously thinking about this still, the missus has family in Belfast, so accommodation would be ok for me, and it's s quick flight from Luton London airport
    it's just the chance of getting a few days off of work.... something to look into i think

    I didn't even come back to say thank you for the recommendation, how rude of me! I booked in to that place you suggested, thank you very much!

    I get in to Belfast at 8 am or something.... yuck! I don't like earlier mornings at all!

    yeah sound, do you know John's friend Adam? He lives in Belfast and knows the story with the pubs n shit, so lets see what happens there too.

    Any idea what time you'll be arriving at? I plan on leaving Dublin early, like 11 or 12 meeting up with John and Kev in Connolly and getting the choo choo NIN train to Belfast.
