New Wembley (and Muse)

Fish spent most of last weekend in the Gallery selling glass, including a commission which should go some way to paying for the lake of Rioja we consumed the week before in Spain. I took Alice and Jake to see Muse at the new Wembley. The gig was great*, but the new stadium is fantastic, all memories of the dank smelly hole it was before have been wiped away by a huge light and airy space, more bars than you can shake an inflated plastic stick at, in fact despite it being a sell out, there appeared more staff than punters at times. £3.50 a pint is not sooo bad albeit in a West End style. The food was also good compared to stadiams of old, but still only at a 'good' motorway service station level. 786072-875530-thumbnail.jpg786072-875528-thumbnail.jpg786072-875523-thumbnail.jpg

* = Actually, Muse (pictures HERE) were real value for money. Completely over the top in a bombastic queen like sing-a-long way. Mike Skinner of The Streets was a total surprise, real show man with a great sense of occasion, really caught the mood of the crowd. Dirty Pretty Things, were manic, did there stuff, nice matching shirts as well. Rodrigo y Gabriela, totally barking Mexico couple, doing insane things with guitars, great.
