    Have to Count - the new and improved one :P

    44, 304 - Just had a phone call - I didn't get the job, but it sounds like I was very close - the lady says if there had been a second post on offer, I would have had that. Sadly there's only one. But I'm very encouraged by the feedback on my interview so it's not all bad

    44, 295 - Late-night counting with a sore throat. I appear to have picked up the dreaded post-concert Bono Mono Hope I don't lose my voice as I have a job interview tomorrow!

    44, 294 - It was Manchester. Much easier to get to than London - and I stayed with relatives so I didn't have to pay for a hotel

    44, 289 - Late Sunday morning counting as I slowly get back to my coursework. I should be starting chapter 3 of the textbook, but haven't even finished chapter 2 yet

    44, 286 - Home now. What a show! Still can't quite believe I made it to the rail. Had a great view and the setlist was almost like they'd picked it from my list of favourites... The minute's applause before we went through the security checks was a nice gesture too. @pollyanna and @peterferris8 you are in for a treat at your shows.

    Manchester Live Thread #U2eiTour

    I'm about to set off up to Manchester. Really excited The venue has said that for security (and lack of space) reasons, we will not be able to have the usual GA line, so just be aware of that if you normally line up early. There are plenty of other places to hang out and meet up with fellow fans nearby before the doors open.

    44, 249 - Just been looking at the Arena website. There are 3 entrances and apparently they're not keen on fans queuing outside. We U2 fans will queue anyway We don't bite.

    44, 247 - Last time I went to Manchester Arena, you could wait indoors in at least one area - although that was 10 years ago, so it's probably different now. And it was nosebleed seats last time too... so glad I got GA for U2
