I'm off to see it next wednessday in Liverpool, you should be looking at leaving the venue no later than 11 but possibly it might be earlier.

I thought I'd seen 7.30pm start on tickets for sale on eBay. I know that's early, but I'm sure that's what I saw. The Hammersmith DVD is only 95 mins with edits for act changeovers etc, so don't expect the gig to last for longer than 1hr 50.

As Blue aren't doing the tour, I think each of the other acts are doing an extra song. I know B*Witched are singing Jessie Hold On which they didn't do at Hammersmith. I use the word "singing" with caution as Edele has had no voice since last Friday.

Doors at Manchester Arena open 6pm, start 7.30pm.

If there's no support act, then the gig should be over about 9.30pm.

Blue are doing some of the dates, they doing Liverpool that much I know. I think with intervals you are probably looking at 10:30 probably but I would have a backup plan in case so you don't end up stranded.

which venue are you going to? as some of them have twitter and in the past I have tweeted venues asking for the running time and usually get a reply (or most have a customer services email address you can get a reply from).

Tonight's Sheffield gig is meant to finish at about 10:05pm, but timings might vary between venues. Apparently there is a 30 minute interval halfway through the show as well.

How the hell can you justify having a 30 min interval during a 2hr gig? I would say another 30 mins of that will be taken up with band changeovers as there was only 90 mins of actual performance at Hammersmith.

Being synical as its good for the venues income as audiences will buy drinks and snacks between.

To be honest most gigs I've been to have a break of some sort, most annoyingly after the support act have been on when they are only on for half an hour for example recent pink concert doors opened at 6, support act 7.30 to 8. Then a 45 min interval 8 to 8.45 then pink was on from 8.45 to 10.45 !

Having an interval (or as I call them, an unannounced stoppage when nothing happens for what seems likes ever) between the support and main acts is fair enough, but there is no Big Reunion support act. And the main gig is presumably only 90 mins long plus band changeovers.

MEN concerts NEVER start at 7.30. I guarantee it wont begin before 8.10pm at the earlier regardless of what it says.

I think it may be different for these as the big reunion put on twitter yesterday to make sure everyone is there for all concerts by 7.30 as it starts then as no support act etc.

The show started and ended a bit later than planned last night as for some reason the staff weren't allowed to let us into the Arena until about 6:45pm (should have been 6:30!). The whole thing finished at about 10:15 I think.

Really brilliant concert anyway - all the acts did well and the crowd were fantastic, and very VERY loud! B*witched were my faves and Honeyz were also brilliant, but everyone did pretty well. If anyone wants to know more about songs performed etc. just ask away, I'm still on a bit of high from it all!
