I am an old mannie (50+) and this was the first time I have seen or heard Bloc Party, albeit on TV. They were absolutely excellent! I told my daughter, Sarah and coincidentally she told me they were her favourite band, but she had missed them because of the car park chaos at TITP. She completely missed the first night and was extremely disappointed!!! What chance a refund for her TITP organisers????

They are hardly 1 of the best bands around just now but neverless I enjoyed there performance of Fri. Would imagine they would be great at an indoor arena but not suited to the main stage of TITP
