Very good gig and a great set of songs. Love the version of two divided by zero.

However, there were too many people standing near the front who just stood there doing nothing or trying to film the concert on cameras. I made a point of dancing with carefree abandon to knock into a few of them to mess up their filming. Why do I want to see a camera screen in front of me for 2 hours?!

I have no idea how, the music at moments became literally mesmerizing and touching. One example: Kings Cross. Absolutely stunning.
I have to agree, the middle section was actually hugely emotional for me, I felt a little stupid, but I cried all the way through Do I have to? and Kings Cross - it was simply stunning!!! :D

And to think I nearly didn't go, I would have missed out on SOOOO much.
I went fishing with Salvador Dali; he used a dotted line.

Just come back to Italy from my London vacation including the O2 concert.
Wonderful show! The best I've seen from the boys.
Feel very proud that almost everyone on the first row carried the PSB balloon I designed.
Greetings to every fan I had the chance to meet.

Oh! I had the feeling there was an army of us (Italians) over there.
Was yours the balloon with the Bing Crosby line? (..btw was is misspelled?) :-)

Yes there were tons of italian fans there.
misspelled? really? You wrote Bing Crosby the same way it was printed on the balloons.
Maybe you're referring to the fact it was "are you listening to US" and not "ME".
That was intentional because pictures of Neil and Chris were on the same balloon.

Your balloons were great, thanks for giving them to us! I was in the front row over to the left with some friends and we were waving them around all the way through the concert. We've still got our balloons too, although they're going down now. During It Doesn't Often Snow at Christmas, my friend tried to hold her balloon still so that Neil could read it and we think he did!

It was a totally amazing concert (even though I'd already seen the one in June and lots of youtube videos so I knew what to expect!) I think it's the best show PSB have ever done and probably the best show I've ever seen! Just so colourful, energetic, unusual and beautiful - I love Es Devlin's style. The choreography and the mash-up style production of the songs is wonderful too and there is such good attention to detail all the way through. I'm really, really looking forward to the DVD, partly because it's the same concert I was at as well!

I also loved how the confetti after It's a Sin was stars rather than rectangles like before. We were right in the middle of it when it all rained down, which was amazing and I collected a big handful of stars afterwards and put them in my bag.

I have about 10 pieces of the confetti from those 3 shows I went to in Sweden and Finland. Pics from the show`?

-I´ve got a 12-inch plonker.
