Can't remember the dates exactly but hear goes.
1993 Sussex University (to promote Sunday Sunday)
1994 The Event, Brighton Park life tour
!995 The Paradox, Brighton great Escape tour
1995 Milton Keynes Bowl (supporting REM)
1995 Wembley Arena
1999 Wembley Arena
2003 Brighton Centre
2009 Hyde Park

Every time I see them, I think that will be the last time they will perform! Yet they keep coming back!
Milton Keynes was my fave gig Simon, how did you find that day? they blew Rem away! :D

Just two, and both in 2012: The first night in Wolverhampton and then Hyde Park for the Olympics.

I'd have liked to experience the MLIR, TGE or 13 eras, mostly for the setlists or the different vibes, but I was too young to attend a gig back then :cry:

Five times for me: Manchester and Hyde park on the 3rd in 2009 and both Wolverhampton gigs and Hyde park in 2012. Soon to be six with Hyde park again and hoping to get to at least two warm ups!

Oh and hi everyone! I was a lurker on the old forum and felt now was a good time to start posting here due to the exciting news :)
