Very different as they were two great bands whose fans were divided by England's class structure and along the north and south divide.
It was also the defining question of my adolescence.

it's up there as one of my favourite albums of all time.

It's so dark and depressing yet amazingly uplifting at the same time.

I went to see the Cure in Hyde Park during the summer and they opened with Plain Song I have never felt like crying at a gig more then I did at that moment, just the most beautiful opening song of any album ever.

Great song to open a gig with. I would love to see them live, would having been to Hyde Park twice I wasn't going again. Terrible music venue.
Robert Smith curated the Southbank festival this year, I think them closing it at a tiny venue like that would have been close to a religious experience.

The whole interview in question is ridiculous, Your wan whoever she is?? was either extremely star struck (which would make you thing why she was there in the first place) or had participated in a few too many pre show drinks.

GnR in 2017 performed in poor conditions, which subsided before the gig started, so perhaps we’ll get that!

Metallica were excellent last night. Little slip ups, including Hetfield repeating the first verse of Enter Sandman, but the band were very tight. The setlist encompasses a lot of Hardwired, and a lot of their historical greatest hits. It actually was the first Metallica gig I’ve been to in two decades where I didn’t get to hear a song I had not heard before. Certainly a diverse range of fans from the hardcore fanatics, to the soft fans, to the Slane devotees who will attend Slane no matter who plays.

I was also interested in Ghost, which included a short came from Papa Emeritus II. They are show-people and the lead singer was quite entertaining in the words he chose when addressing the crowd. I saw nothing of the other support acts.

After GnR in 2017, I’ve come to accept some of the difficulties associated with Slane. The long walk for the bus being one of them, the dispersed beer stations and the limited choice of beer. The toilets will probably never be able to sufficiently cater for 75,000 people. Driving is the way to go, and it is better to arrive to the car park around 4pm, and the venue is next door. Bussing it is something I’d probably not be willing to do again.

Looking forward to seeing them again in Twickenham in 10 days time.

Crowd were sh*te

Music and setlist were amazing

29 songs

39 from Bloodflowers was immense - never expected that

Wendy Time also - they've barely ever played it live

They could put together three different setlists and all would be brilliant

Robert Smith is a beautiful man - as beautiful as Virgil van Dijk and Shane Duffy

I would imagine they do a lot of gimmicky things. Personally, that's where I struggle with metal in general. It all gets a bit too camp for me. That and bad fretting. 

I do like a bit of black metal though, especially the symphonic Norwegian stuff. Some bad ****s made the music, but it is genuinely misanthropic. I find it cathartic.

Would have liked something of death magnetic on the set list but really enjoyed it.

Last night was the first time I drove, came in from the drogheda direction instead of the usual northern direction, the car park was much closer on this side so a lot less walking involved.

I still prefer the bus though, it’s a longer walk coming from the Dundalk side but just prefer the craic doing it that way

Metallica have always regulated their setlist based on whether the tour is “promotional” or not. Hence the five songs from Hardwired last night. A decade ago you would have had four or five DM songs per gig as it was the DM tour.

But like you say, I’d like to have seen at least one song, and a bit more Kill em All.

They have written some excellent music, but just watch ‘Some Kind of Monster’. It’s an amazing documentary, but it really highlights how petty and greedy they all are, Hetfield and the **** on drums in particular.
