Eric from Twitter tells me they played for 105 minutes, so an hour and 45 minutes. I was 5 minutes out 8)

Great intermezzos also apparently :prayer:

Based on the tweets timescale, around 1.50 from what I can work out. Hard to know exactly as people tweeted once inside but before the gig actually started, but they read like it had. If you know what I mean.


That sounds much more realistic than my guess of 3 hrs :lol:

Meet and greet vibes :pray:

That makes more sense than 3 hours. :D
(Even if we all wish they'd perform for us for 3 hours! But they'd be exhausted and we don't want that.)

I can't wait to hear about the banter and any possible new songs and where out girls were seated- or standing.......:D Just everything!

I'm guessing they realised that in the Great Tour of 2009 people couldn't see them well enough when they had those funny helmets on their heads and so were looking the wrong way. Putting lighting in was the guys being helpful and striving to make this the Great Tour of 2010 :D

Even with the robot head on, that is one fine picture of Bret :wink: .

Really looking forward to hearing loads more details...
That's the conclusion that I've come to, but...

Gonna have to have an episode marathon and pretend they are singing to me.
