    Poor Kala. No, I have a herniated disc in my back which has left me rather immobile. So I think stairs may well be a no-no.

    That's actually what "Goin' Down" was written about, it's the accountancy anthem of our generation

    :D

    It must be said I wasn’t actually OVERJOYED at the fact I would likely be sitting in the pissing rain, surrounded by people I would rather not be. I think I am probably TOO OLD for a Spice Girls concert on that scale. I WAS going to get drunk and go for it, but I can’t drink and am in pain. WHATS THE POINT?

    Pop the CD on, take an extra dose of your painkillers and I’m sure you’ll think you’re there anyway x

    Ok so my friends (who are staying with me tonight but didn’t come to the gig with me) got totally lost and have ended up the other side of Edinburgh so what’s a girl to do but update Moopy on how frigging awesome that show was

    Mel C got teary during Let Love Lead The Way which remains one of my favourites (but literally no one else seemed to remember)

    I loved Mel B the most. She had so much energy on stage and vocally was actually much better than I ever remember her being. What has she done to her face though?

    It was a great production. The stage was brilliant. And I think they really thought about trying to cater for everyone.

    Being picky, I’d change the ordering of the set list a bit more. Mama is not really a song for an encore. And I’d get rid of We Are Family. It was not required. I’d add Saturday Night Divas in. And I know we’ve discussed this before but even if they didn’t want to sing the songs, they could have used the likes of Look At Me and I Turn To You for the filler bits and made more of the ‘houses’ theme.

    But overall, brilliant show. I will always be a spice boy at heart.

    No review from me as I wasn’t there. My daughter went with her boyfriend and she FaceTimed me when they sang Mama ( :manson:).

    Was she wearing that orange suit for you too? :D

    It was hideous and she has about as much stage presence as a potato

    I’ve actually gotten a bit maudlin thinking I won’t see it again now. They’d better record it.

    I also forgot- I walked home with someone from Denden! New Zealand girl, staying in the same hotel, hence the route sharing. No idea who she was...

    What's Ashton Gate like as a venue, @Sheena? I've never been to a concert there. Well, they don't tend to have many at all - I think this is the first summer they have had several on there.

    I assume stadiums are pretty much one and the same, though.

    I liked it- it didn’t seem ENORMOUS, for a stadium, if that makes sense. I was right at the front too, which helped, and the show very much made the most of the surroundings...

    I think the seated capacity is just under 30k, so I guess that is smaller in terms of stadiums where concerts are regularly held.

    I'm pleased they are using it for concerts increasingly though. Particularly considering I fully expect I'll be dead before the arena here ever happens.

    It was so much better sound wise at Wembley I’m glad I went twice . Was in the same sort of spot so close but it was so so good .

    The only issue I had with the sound was that where I was, I could hear it coming from two different speakers which weren't well synched up, with the sound from one being delayed. It was fine but a bit distracting when you can hear the drums twice, it makes everything sound a bit like it's at the wrong speed. But I think that's just a symptom of playing a large venue
