I'm so glad that they got there! Eugene is stuck in Glasgow due to the smoke monster :?

Oh no......wonder what they'll do? Maybe let the audience do a bit of open-mike night? :lol: :wink:

Glad they made it, sorry Eugene's stuck but maybe he'll find a way...

Eugene isn't opening for them anymore - Arj is the opener now ;) Eugene is on his way back to the US

Aw, bummer for Eugene. Glad Arj was able to fill in, though! :)

Wait, who was scheduled to open for them - Eugene or Arj?

It was Arj all along....I'd just misunderstood from the get-go when Kelly said Eugene was stuck.... :blush: :doh:

Ah, I see. So I'm guessing he was trying to get back to the US and couldn't, thanks to the good old ash again, eh? I hope this doesn't keep some of our fans from seeing the guys. :pray:

I don't know last night but at other shows I went to they get on stage around 8.45pm (with support starting at 8pm)

^Yep in Birmingham the support act (Eugene) was on at 8pm for about 20-25 minutes, then there was an interval and then FOTC came on around 8.45pm. That seems to be the rough timing of the shows so far.

Can't wait for tonight's show! :yay:
