Couldn't believe we never got CATH,must be some reason,if so please explain!!!

Anyway myself and Mrs Stan had a great night,the band were as usual were on top form.Apologies to any one standing behind me as It Bites + beer + vodka = bouncy. Also a wee bit dissapointed not to get a hold of the Japan cd but the signed band photo made up for that.

Support band Aynsley Lister were fantastic as well,dont miss them.In fact after their set all the band members chatted and signed Cds etc which I thought was a nice touch.

UYP and Faren in the set. Nice. No Lights though. Must say I like that one a lot more than Playground.

Hmm. .that looks like a REALLY short set.. how long did they play for a (very) rough guesstimate has that down around 70 minutes plus whatever they played last...

Off to Manchester in a bit.. is the geezer on first worth turning up for?? Not some acoustic twaddle, is it??

Not seen him for years, heused to play on the same circuit as my old band about 15 years ago. Bass player in my current band used to play for him. Not heard much of his newer stuff, but from what I've been told worth a listen. Blues based rock. Very good player, but not the voice to match IIRC

Oh and enjoy the show.
Maybe dime tomorrow????????

As Paiste say's,Aynsley Lister is a 4 piece blues based rock band with a female bass player.Played an excellent set,and went down very well with a healthy Glasgow crowd.Well worth a listen imo.

The support act should be 30 mins, 40 mins max, imo. I guess it's down to the promoters, but a 90 min It Bites set is on the short side me thinks.

excellent gig, a few minor tech hitches. even after JM explained that this would be the last song due to the licensing curfew thing-a-me-bob, there was still the good 'ol reliable f**k wit shouting "Whit aboot the f******g encore EH?? God i love Glasgow Laughing . Grabbed a couple of t-shirts plus snazzy flight bag, very nice.

If you look at the Forum Post from Rich J on 27th Feb about Stage tImes for the tour (i.e. a week before the show), it was quite clear that there was a 10pm curfew at the ABC in Glasgow - let alone any need to remind everyone of what happened there last time.

So, for the band to not insist (as I recommended on a separate post a day before the gig itself) that Aynsley cut short his set by 10-15 minutes to allow for the HEADLINE BAND (lest we forget) to give their fans the 1hr45 set most other towns are getting is unacceptable and (dare I say it?) bordering on amateurish.

I am a huge IB fan from way back when and have to say that, much as I enjoyed the show in Glasgow on Friday, when I looked at my watch at 8:05pm as Aynsley was saying "And this is my last song...", I kinda knew how the evening was going to pan out. Not only did we not get the setlisted encore of "Judas", but JB had to chat to JM before (what was going to be) "Rose Marie" to tell him he had to skip a tune from the main set.

Come on guys... I don't know who is Tour Managing you these days, but you should have a word in his/her ear before you play Glasgow again.

If you want to play the ABC, please remember it's a 10pm curfew (always is, always was, always will be) and plan your set lengths for headline and support bands accordingly. If anyone should have had songs cut out of their set, it certainly shouldn't have been the headliners! No offence to Aynsley (who was pretty good) but 'support' (or opening) bands are exactly that. I have played enough support sets to touring bands over the years and know exactly what happens if things look like over-running early in the evening. The opening band sacrifice the length of their set. Easy peasy.

Sort it out. This was pretty unprofessional and a tad disrespectful to the audience in my opinion. Once more, an excellent (if short) set somehow still left a sour taste in many Glaswegians' mouths. It's a real shame, because it had been a great show up til that point - OATW and OMATA were fantastic in particular.

Hopefully folk won't have a go at me for being overly negative or critical. I thought IB were very good, but all that it would have taken for everyone to be happy would have been a smidgeon of organisation, forward planning or discipline. Not too much to ask at 15 per ticket, is it?

Very Happy There was an 11 o'clock curfew at Manchester, which i'm happy to report was broken. I take your point about 40 minute support slots, but when the support is of the calibre of Aynsley Lister, i ( and a few others i might add ) were glad that he got his full hour to showcase his talents. I will be there to watch him ( hopefully for an hour ) again on Wednesday. His new CD Equilibrium is superb. Very Happy
