DAVIDIAN! brilliant! This got the crowd goin the pit was brutal people were running in all direction there were people on the floor and other people falling over them it was just chaos!……. i cant quite remembr what they played next but i just remember hearin rob sayin, i want everyone to move to the sides and make a pit the whole size of this place, he then said i want the old machine head fans to show the new ones how its done, and i swear the whole fuckin floor was 1 huge open space with bodies crushed around the sides he then screams “BBBBLLLLOOOOCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK” followed by a hell of a lot of of smiles on peoples faces, it kicks in and everyone i mean everyone was in this pit, it was fucking huge i tihnk i got some pictures of it im just hopin it turns out good! so all in all i give this 10/10 FUCKING BRILLIANT GUYS!

This was the best Machine Head gig I’ve ever bin to, it was sooooooooooo good. I’ve bin a MH fan pretty much from the beginin and it was fuckin well good to see a lot of younger people there, Machine Fuckin Head is the way forward. Wot the fuck though the pits were fuckin mental, I mean I know manchester is THE BEST CROWD but he didn’t have to tell us. lol. The circle pit was fuckin amasin n the fact that Rob (the man) was really fuckin emotional he was fuckin lovin it the fuckin chants n everythin. I can’t belive how much cool old stuff they played it was soooooooooooo fuckin cool to hear that shit live again. There are no fuckin words that describe how mental the pits were for DAVIDIAN it was truly amazing.
