Gutted indeed...!

The RAH is a good venue and sounds good too - only downside is the beer prices :huh:

I have recruited a few friends from the S.Wales area...7 of us are going down on the train! I am going to be giggling with excitement like a little school girl on the way there! I haven't been this excited about a gig for years :D

Even i'm going to this, had a nice invite to it. Quite looking forward to it too; i'm not usually into 'heavier' stuff but i have to say Les Claypool is awesome (as are the rest of the band!) :yarr:

Got tickets for both nights, can't wait. Saw them at Brixton last year too and they were amazing. But if they don't play Wynona on at least one night I might cry.

I got my tickets last year for this, for the first night - I'll be in a freakin' box!

Nope, SeeTickets are awful, but the only way to get them as far as I could see.
Every single time I've bought tickets from those muppets, months in advance, I've ended up having to print off the email confirmation and collect the tickets from the Box Office on the day. Every time I swear I'll never use them again, but they seem to have a bit of a handle on all the gigs I want to go to - the bastards!

Thinking about the Seas of cheese dates - Apparently one night is a 'Best of' set, the other night is Sailing the seas of Cheese & the new album start to finish (Both nights will be 2 sets with a break apparently!?).

Either way, I don't care what they play on the 4th date which I will be attending! Just gutted that Herb won't be on drums :(

I thought that but having seen them with Jay and listened to the new album a lot I think I actually prefer him to Herb.
If it's true about playing all of Seas.. then you can consider my excitement tripled.

I've liked all the drummers Primus have had, particularly Brain, although I know he's not the most popular.
I actually think Jay's style is a nice mix between Herb and Brain, I really like his work with Charlie Hunter Trio too :)

I just can't bloomin' wait, even my wife is looking forward to it, she was pleasantly surprised when I took her to see them last year...

Herb is my fav, but Brain's drums on the Brown Album and Antipop is awesome. He is a top drummer.

I thought Brain brought a cool heavier rock feel to the albums he was on. I love his spastic drum fills in Shake Hands With Beef.

Well I never, See Tickets have just emailed me telling me my tickets have been dispatched...
I didn't expect that, I was gearing up to furiously queue at the box office moments before the gig started, which tends to be the "See Tickets Way".
Oh well, perhaps they've finally ironed out their business model...

I would have done that too if I knew at the time that they are playing two different sets over the two dates :angry:

Excellent, very glad I went for the Thursday night!
I love Sailing The Seas of Cheese a hell of a lot, but Pork Soda is definitely my favourite album, closely followed by The Brown Album, so there's every chance they'll play a little of both then.
Nice.
