Set List [1]


This concert ended abruptly after about 30 minutes.
Wales Online recounted:

It’s a night that’s gone down in indie-rock legend, the outspoken vocalist being yanked offstage by over-zealous fans, only to land on his head and spend the rest of the night being treated for concussion at the A&E department of the nearby Royal Gwent Hospital.

The incident happened around 30 minutes into the Manchester band’s fifth date on their The Queen Is Dead tour – and the concert further cemented its status in rock and roll’s annals of infamy when the remainder of the show was called off, resulting in the audience attempting to trash the venue, the police being called and several arrests being made."
