The audience were abit patchy with alot of first timers. They played around 20 songs including a 10 minute Belter which was an extended version of Come Back around. The moshpit then opened up and the whole place went mental as they kept playing the heavy part over and over.

Sound: Feeder came on stage about 2 hours after the doors opened. If I remember rightly, Grant was using a Fender Jazzmaster and Taka was using a custom made bass they he makes himself. They were really throwing the crowd good meat to chew on. The sound was 2nd to none, a truely awesome sound and atmosphere. // 10
Perfomance: The audience were abit patchy with alot of first timers. They played around 20 songs including a 10 minute Belter which was an extended version of Come Back around. The moshpit then opened up and the whole place went mental as they kept playing the heavy part over and over. Was truely awsome. Every song was amazing apart from one acoustic song they played near the end called "Dove Grey Sands" it was an ok soft song for everyone to catch a breather before they did the grand finale which was "Just A Day" this song started off with their 2nd guitarist (used only on tours) playing the intro riff over and over at half speed and clean tone instead of distorted. The whole crowd started singing "doo, doodoo, doo... etc" and Grant was well impressed by this. about 2 minutes after starting he hit the distortion and the speeded it up and the place completely exploded. I realised how good the drummer mark really is as the mosh pits were mainly due to him hammering out amazing beats. // 10
Overall Impression: The concert was in the UK in Manchester and the Calling Apollo Theatre on the 25th of March 2005. The show opened with Cherryfalls who weren't bad and had a really cool guitarist that used a whisk and a ray gun over the pickups to create great sounds. I loved the whole atmosphere as it was completely amazing alot of first timers but with a few of veterans that kept the pits buzzing at all times, also, lots of a very beautiful ladies around which is always a plus. The concert only cost 20 (Yeah, thats right 20) - a f--ing amazing deal! It was well worth the money, I would be been willing to pay double for the concert but for 20, you cant go wrong. The most unforgetable moment for me was when the pits really started moshin. For the first 2 or 3 songs, it was very reserved but by the 4th song it really did start going and eventually it was all buzzing. I would definately check them out again without a doubt. // 10
