Last gig ever! They announced they were splitting up before this gig came around. Played some great sets, the gig seemingly got chopped short, we left to the ghostly strains of "We'll Meet Again"... I hope we do.
UPDATE: we did, Suede reformed, and we saw them again.
I was at this one, more from this year in Paul's gig history for 2003. Part of every gig I went to from '87 to 2023. It's an obvious step from my Best Gigs Ever blog post. Yeah I know very nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying reminiscing about this stuff.
