Neil mentioned it in two of the radio interviews recently. That's the 2nd documented time they thought of quitting (and according to Neil, the only two times).

I found it quite amusing the way neil described it on the interview before the hyde park performance.

How is it possible to stand with your arms folded when PSB are in front of you???!!!
You got a heart of glass or a heart of stone?

Hello matey, no it was actually very good. It wasnt a Sports Hall, it was the Auditorum. Holds about 1,300 but there was a bit of space at the back for standing.

I dont remember much about it really. Shaking Neils hand and wishing him happy birthday. The crowd sang a half arsed happy birthday between one of the songs.

The Nightlife tour was more depressing than this imo but Grimsby isnt the greatest place really. The Auditorium is a bit of a shithole within a shithole.
