I felt Hogmanay had a very "festival" feel. I was conflicted on whether to go down early and get a good spot but have to stand it out through acts I don't really care for, or go later miss the support acts but risk getting a shit view? I went for the former and I'm amazed I wasn't near collapse from all the standing by the end of it all.

im sure they do them so they can afford to do their own tour.
id also change it to greatest hits tour but with Electric tracks included, as if Cardiff date is true they only have a few months to sell the tickets

BTW the Odyssey is one of the venues I'd wish to see PSB if they announce a gig there.
That was all over the news up North here, Ziggy (Hardwell incident). Here's hoping for a show in Ireland!

Now that was disappointing.
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

What's so awful about the Frankfurt concert? It's sound exciting to me. Big dome, full Electric set etc.
I find the idea of having to listen to 150 DJs that I probably don't like at all (I can't stand David Guetta and all the others ones they named in the announcement) for hours quite annoying. Also the crowd is probably going to be horrible - I can't imagine the average person who goes to this kind of DJ / rave / techno event to be a very passionate PSB fan, so probably they'll just "sit through" the PSB set the way I'd simply sit through the DJ sets.

What I'd like to see in Europe are some old-fashioned standard PSB concerts - no other artists, just a simple indoor concert in a small to mid-sized venue. Basically what the two US legs of the Electric tour looked like, that would be great in to have in Europe as well!
so you don't know what you're talking about at all, then

i was at sonar (similar concept and musical focus) and the crowd were amazing, much more 'up for it' and energetic than your average PSB concert - the crowd at the o2 in London was like a morgue in comparison

get a lot of young/young-ish people on drugs who love electronic dance music in front of the Electric show and the results are going to be pleasing to watch
