Fantastic concert from Foxy76, 15/07/14
Pearl Jam were out of this world and utterly amazing . The venue performed okay , a few things could have been better. Entrance to venue was slow Merchandise stands had little stock Drinks and food over priced Great view even from top tier
Band came on late from Nicky Sorby, 14/07/14
We received an email to say that the concert woukd finish for 11 oclock. So we decided to use public transport. It was frustrating however because the band came on late which meant we could not stay until the end of the show because we would have missed the last train back to Manchester. All the hits I really wanted to listen to I missed. Very disappointed.
3 hours 40 minutes of pure brillian... from Dave Paisley, 14/07/14
Down to earth set and as ever Pearl Jam produced a memorable night, it was evident that The Who connection had not been lost on Edd who appeared to revel in the atmosphere and the closeness of the crowd to the stage. Pearl Jam are the real deal and probably the purest rock band touring at present. Superb.
