Lost count now. Probably coming up to 40 although I could try and backtrack if I tried.

First was Glasto 95. Done all the Glasto shows except 94 (the yellow flag in the 02 footage is mine).
Shows include Albert Hall 96, Final Show Maida Vale 04, NYE Millennium Cream and the following year at Docklands, Homelands, most of the gigs in Brighton, popped from Glasto up to Brixton and back to see them on the Sunday in 04.

I came back early from my Australian two year trip to see them reform in 09 (cut the second year down to only 3 months worth of the visa), sadly never returned to Oz, a bit of a huge regret I have to say but...being able to see Orbital again and again is some recompense.

Last Wednesday's gig in Brighton was one of their best ever sets and a 16 year wait to see them again at the Albert Hall next Tuesday...looking forward to that is an understatement (RAH 96 IS one of their best shows ever).

Once ... last night at the Royal Albert Hall ... which is quite silly since I've been a fan since 1993 (If I've got my maths right!) ... but I'd never been one for gigs or festivals.

It'll be twice come December 3rd in Bristol.

Oooh. It's my first post so hello everyone! :D

I KNEW I'D SEEN THEM THERE BEFORE!!!!! Some guy called Mu was the support

Had a much better view last night though :)

My first gig was the Tribal Gathering in 95. I remember it vividly, as they set up at the other end of the tent to the Chemical Bros (still the Dust Bros then) and the Prodigy.
I said to the girl I was with that would should just lean against the barriers at the back, which then ended up being the front :)

However, I think this started my front and centre obsession which I still have.......

Number of times don't know lots! Do remember see then support 808 state 90 or 91 at Brixton Academy.
One of my must memorable was Ocean at Hackney clubs opening night.

Got every single ticket as well! :nerd
Ah, so you must be those people I spoke to after the Brixton gig in 2009. There was this club where Phil did a DJ-set after the show... Can't remember the name.

I've seen orbital 4 times now. First time was in Amsterdam at the drum rhythm festival. Still have some parts of that on tape :D

Then I went to London in 2004 for two gigs at Brixton back to back.
Which was awesome. Met a lot of loopz people.

Then I saw a DJ set of phil in I think 2006 in London again.
And after that it was davemac's party :D

In 2009 I went to Belgium to see them play there.
Then back to London again in 2009. Again brixton as mentioned before.

Next friday wil be my sixth gig I suppose. Second one in my home country. :D

Would've gone a lot more often, if only I lived in the uk...

It's 106 miles to Chicago.
We got a full tank of gas,
half a pack of cigarettes.
It's dark and we are wearing sunglasses
