Sarah (Morgan) and Debbie picked me up at about 1:45 we drove to nottingham, got there at about 2:20 no problems, when we got to nottingham however, there are NO signs to Nottingham Arena, and the directions we had got were useless because half of the roads were being dug up, after driving around and around for ages, we decided to drop us off at the train station as ive made the journey from the station to the arena twice by foot, so i could kind of remember it. To make sure though we got a map from the station and asked 2 secruity guards which way to go, they told us that we were like 45 minutes away and should get a tram. They REALLY pissed us off. I knew what they told us was wrong, so we decided to go the way I thought, on the way we asked one of those parking ticket people, and he told us the way I had said. anyways we half ran half walked to the arena (about 10 minutes away including a very steep hill) and got there at about 3:15. We queued and got talking to a pair of brummies (a fort minor fan!) they were nice lads. Anyways time and games of disney character/oasis song title hangman went by and we moved to a different queue (closer to the front!) here we got talking to this other lad who knew me as “my new best friend who likes The Who”, he sounded quite posh, and a woman called Claire who about 10 years ago met and kissed Liam Gallagher twice in a pub and brought him drinks! anyways we spent the rest of the time talking to them.
They didnt let us in until 6:45 , we got in ok and got our spot right in front of Noel. Also the security men at the front were probably the nicest security blokes I’ve seen, ever.
The support: Shack, were crap, but they didn’t have a chance, with everyone waiting for Oasis, inbetween each song everyone would start the “Oasis” chant, then the singer was like “mm thanks.”
Oasis were phenomenal. Song after song, pure energy. Ok, Noel seemed tired/grumpy but Liam was loving it, he kept facing us and staring us out; and putting his tambourine in his mouth, he was brilliant, it confirmed what I think I already knew: Liam is my favourite Gallagher brother. The set seemed to go quickly, also Gem and Andy Bell need a mention as they seem like such nice guys, Zak had a brilliant shirt on too – black with white polka dots. On the dress topic, Liam looked top, nice little khaki jacket it was all good, Noel – scruffy grey polo shirt. oo and Kasabian was watching them from the side of the stage. Champagne Supernova was epic.
My arms and chest (because of the barrier), legs (queueing) and my throat (the singing/woo-ing) hurt so bad.
