Selected reviews for this venue:
Will.i.am (24/07/13) - I got a feeling that tonights guna be a good night
Took the missus to see will.i.am with David Guetta at the Alexandra Palace. Not really my cup of tea but the girlfriend thought it was great. tHE final bit with I got a feeling playing was pretty immense. Was knackered at the end though!
Vans Warped Tour (20/11/12) - Thank you for bringing this great tour to the UK!
Having been to the Vans Warped Tour in Toronto, I was really looking forward to seeing it on home turf. This first UK date was headlined by the mighty Lostprophets who are one of my favourite bands. They played a blinder of a set, closing a great day featuring the likes of bring me the horizon and 3HO!3. Looking forward to a European tour next year.
Vans Warped Tour (12/11/12) - Amazing bar the crowds
I absolutely loved the Vans Warped Tour, however I am absolutly gutted I was forced to miss Bowling For Soup, as the timings clashed with the Lostprophets- this I understand would be hard to organise. However, I was also forced to miss Charlie Simpson, because the queue was too long and the space was full. I also missed meeting Less than Jake as the queue was too long and was also told I wouldnt be able to meet the Lostprophets. It was only because I chose to ignore the bouncers and stay in the queue that I was able to get my signed poster - which did then get nicked out of my bag :( These events put a dampner on my experience and I think that if the bands I was able to see weren't so tight and performed so well then I wouldnt have enjoyed my experience.
