GN’R were also playing in Stratford, twice… It’s so close to where I live I can see the stadium from my place, the cost however of a standard standing ticket was more than Golden Circle ticket in Paris… Therefore I headed to Paris and joined Greg and Stephanie. Originally I had planned to join them in Imola, but Paris kind of worked better.
Kristina and Vinny also decided to join. This then spread with a load of others from the Garbage crew joining in, so all in all, this was a far better experience than seeing them in my back yard, even if they are the greatest band of all time!
A few weeks before the show a plan was hatched by Greg to try and get Simon to the show as well. Unfortunately he was unable to join, and in all honestly I’m kind of glad he didn’t, It was so hot during the day, even inside the stadium. I’m not sure how he’d have coped. Where he’d have been sat he would have been in the scorching hot sun for a good hour or two. At least in the standing area we could walk to the other side of the ground into the shade.
GNR played for over 3 hours and were far better than the time I saw them at the O2 without Slash & Duff.

- Biffy Clyro

Overall the trip to Paris was a good one.
