Amazingamazingamazing. Couldn't have been a better night, everything was perfect from premiering tracks they hadn't ever played live before ("Heave") to playing old songs which they retired a while back ("Latchmere", "Toothpaste Kisses") and a doo-wop version of "About Your Dress". They also have 3 screens and a whole professional camera set up filming and projecting onto the screens alongside various effects (DVD has to happen production values on the screens alone was amazing) and a seriously incredible and huge lighting rig. Wanna go back so so bad. Last picture shows how packed and what a 10,000 people sold out palace show looks like.

Saw them at the Alexandra Palace gig, they were amazing. Easily one of the best bands I've seen live.

Only decent video of it so far and the crowd is annoying, but seeing this for the first time at the huge Alexandra Palace gig a couple of weeks ago was amazing because a)it was the first they'd aired the "mash up" b) it's of "Latchmere" and "About Your Dress", two songs from their debut which they haven't played in many years and c) its a doo-wop version of "About Your Dress" (although it doesn't come across as much of one in the video due to sound, but still great).

Makes me wanna experience for the first time live again, whole gig was best ever. This is taken from a UK festival over the past weekend, so not the time I saw them at the Palace recently, but nevertheless:

Yeah quite the passionate crowd at their gigs, it makes me love going to see them even more. Always singing along every word as loud as possible. Glad you had fun, got any other gigs lined up?

It was definitely worth journeying through the whole of the Picadilly Line to see them! Yeah, I've got blink in Brixton coming up next month, what about you?

I was at Rock Werchter but didn't get to see them unfortunately, my friends all wanted to see Rise Against at the same time and I waited for blink afterwards. Would have been great to see them in that little tent though!

Yeah apparently they went down a storm! Looked like it was baking in there though, they seemed to have a blast. Feels weird not having a date lined up to go and see them again, already seen them three times this year, need more.

Next single is going to be "Ayla" which is a great choice. They played an amazingly stripped back version of it on BBC Radio 2 yesterday, will post when it appears online.
