Sad to say that this evening’s REM gig at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, did nothing to improve my feelings about large soulless stadium concerts.

Still it was almost worth it simply for the experience of standing beside a group at the tram station who were discussing the band behind this week’s other big gig in Manchester, U2. They discussed the band’s success observing that: “it’s just a shame they never really went any further”.
