Most of the remaining seats appear to be accessible/disabled, not sure if exclusively so

A few tickets available again today. Is this going to be worth going to or will it be just another festival strength gig?

It's the length of a full gig, so if anything the set will be similar to the tour. They did say as well in interviews that they might play some songs by The Cure but I don't know if they will bother if Nicky is not there. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

Is he definitely out of the equation for tomorrow?

Not definitely - there is a chance he could appear but given that he's been very quiet on social media of late given the circumstances, it's hard to say either way really. The last gig was only a few days ago and he didn't play then, so who knows?

I'm not expecting Nicky tomorrow. Think he'll be off grid for a month or two. There's no reason why they can't play what they were planning though It's James that has to sing them.

The Anchoress posted stage times on her Twitter the other day:

Doors: 7pm
The Anchoress: 7:30pm
Manics: 8:30pm

So looks like a slightly earlier finish than their usual gigs, but I would imagine the set would be around the usual length. I wouldn't be surprised if Nicky wasn't there either.

The Anchoress' tweet also said "Please arrive in good time, as this is a seated venue and latecomers may not be admitted until a suitable gap in the performance".

Although from everything I've gathered so far about these series of gigs, people have been standing anyway (I noticed The Libertines tweeted their thanks to the crowd for standing).

A suitable gap in the performance may just be chatter between songs. People are encouraged to stand for these gigs anyway. I'm sure James will tell everyone to get up if people are being lazy

I suspect that line is just from the venue and applies generally to events they hold at the Royal Festival Hall, seen as they hold classical concerts and whatnot. I'd be surprised if anyone even noticed people coming in during a gig like this one, especially if everyone is standing anyway.

Christ, only just noticed this is today. Wasn't that long ago that I'd be memorising gig days and watching the setlists come through as they're happening if I'm not there. Struggling to get excited enough to do that right now..

Read the other week that they'd been talking about this being a special gig, apparently there's summat Robert Smith wanted em to play? I dunno.. I'd be mildly amused if they don't do any Anchoress duets. Be bloody typical, think it was Wolves Futurology that Lucy Rose was at but didn't perform at.. Sausages.

Anyone know how long it takes to get from the venue to St. Pancras? Going to have to do a dash, probably miss out on ADFL.

Google Maps has at at 46 minutes! But not from that area so not sure if that's accurate

Sounds about right to me, could be less but wouldn't want to take the chance if you're working to a schedule.

No where near that.

Northern Line (Charing X branch) to Waterloo then 5 minute walk at a brisk pace shouldn't be more than 30 minutes. Probably less.
