Tell us who's going, chat about meet ups and chat about the show afterwards.

what's the quickest and cheapest way to get from London to Manchester and return again to London by the end of the show?

Holy fuck... Principiante just sent me a text message saying that Little Horn was played at tonight's show, and that there was a guest guitarist!?

I think it's fairly safe to say that it probably wasn't Kerry King, and that we all want to know who the fuck it was!

Excellent news.

This is a **complete** shot in the dark, but....doesn't Noel Gallagher live in Manchester? And he and Twiggy are good friends.....

Like I said, complete shot in the dark but you never know......

I should have known, this is a fantastic bit of news! It's likely a one off, but fuck me if it's not cool as anything, I thought Rob seemed like the most natural member of Manson to be added to the lineup in a long time. And I love this whole recent lack of predictability to the shows, like anyone could come on and play with them, it's excellent.

Cringeon has also just added this to our front page news. Fuck proof, we're hardcore like that, I'm sure it's true...

Little Horn and Rob Holiday - no fair! Kudos on the scoop though guys!

I love Rob, and really hope that in someway he sticks around with MM. While Andy has done an awesome job and I have no complaints with his performance, there was just an edge to Rob that really brought a much needed fire into the live energy of the band. The tour with both him and Twiggy on the same stage was awesome. Those two really engaged each other, constantly running towards and in to each other, swapping instruments, and just being overall bad asses.

Wishful thinking, but it would be awesome to see Rob added into the mix with Andy and Twiggy. All 3 are more than qualified to handle any guitar OR bass, and it would be amazing to see a show where they all switch up their instruments depending on what the song calls for.

A lot of the material from ACSS, MA and HW would benefit greatly with the addition of another live guitarist... just saying ;)

I'm hesitant to say it's not entirely wishful thinking, purely on a basis of how infrequent Prodigy records are, they don't always do tours on the same sort of schedule as a regular rock band. But it's tough because I thought Andy was/is excellent, so it's a weird thing to want to happen.

Anyway, one night only is good enough for me, what a fun thing to do! Hopefully there will be some nice audio/video et cetera.

After a pissy page of nothing in particular at Babalon, someone clocked on and found a video of Rob coming onstage:-

Yep... it was a great show, and these were some good times.
Little horn live (way better that RTTEOTW for me) - finally :D
He as introduced the guitarrist, but I couldn't understand it at the moment...

Unfortunally, my touring finishes here as Nottingham is to out of hand to get there in proper time :(

Awesome!
Must see a good video of "Little Horn".
I like that he is still in touch with the 'old' band members. :)

I say throw in Rob as a 2nd guitarist for the future. It would add soooo much depth to the band.

Fuck yeah Rob is a pretty cool guy, but Andy seems pretty cool as well. I'd still prefer Rob on bass/guitar though.

Great to see Rob back. IMO he owns every past member besides John 5
