  • First time at the O2 Academy, brilliant old school live music venue, down in the stalls midway, where it's all happening. Skunk Anansie, what can I say apart from outstanding. Got to be one of the best live bands I've seen for a good while. The passion & energy they play with 25 years on is something special. They had the audience bouncing from the first to last song nearly 2 hours on. What an amazing sound they had tonight, testament to a great sound crew & PA at the O2. 10 out of 10, will visit again.
  • The gig (Gary Numan) was great. Plenty of & easy access to bars. The venue was a bit smelly & very sticky (glad I wore boots as could feel them sticking to the floor!). Quite small too. But was still one of the best concerts I've ever been to, so won't let the stickiness put me off going again
