Saw the Black Keys here. They were great, but no one stands up. Stood at the top and still had decent view of band

We went to watch James Morrison on 31st Jan and had a top night. Yes, the building and interior are very old and tired but does not mean you will have a bad night! Drinks prices were expensive as always in theatres and arena's- £3.80 for a CAN of Gaymers/ Carlsberg- but served really quickly.
