There will also be coverage on the Red Button, with build up from this Saturday. Then footage from the gig will be up til October 31st. If there are any changes I will do my best to flag them up. So get those recorders out.. I will not be posting video/audio up for download or any links to other sites for download. There is always the possibility this could be released.

Expect full coverage on the blog! I have switched my work days to be able to hear/blog the show. Should be a good day/night wherever you are!
