Manchester & McBusted - Day 1!

At the start of May I had the delight of visiting Manchester for the first time. Nervous beyond words as anyone who knows me will know I can barely make my way around Glasgow myself nevermind somewhere I've never been before. I had my friend with me on my journey also, he being none the wiser of where anywhere was - although having been in Manchester before. We booked the hotel and train the week before going - note to self* don't do this again, it's pricey. On the subject of being clueless we actually booked a hotel at £99 thinking it was for the 2 nights Friday to Sunday, when in actual fact it was for each night so were automatically £99 more than planned down haha!

Anyway we set off first thing on Friday morning (our concert was that night) from Glasgow Central and arrived 2 hours or so before check in, we jumped in a taxi and informed the taxi driver we where looking to go to the Thistle hotel, before him informing us that all we had to do was walk to the corner of the street and take a left, so that's what we done and abruptly arrived at our destination. - Beautiful.

We headed to reception were we ended up leaving our cases before heading for a quick look aroud until our room was ready. After a short period we headed back after having a browse in a few shops, got checked in and made use of the hotel facilities - hello, pool, jacuzzi and sauna. We then went back to the room and started to get ready for dinner, we opted for Nandos, yummy.

My dinner outfit;
Top - George Asda
Leggings - Primark
Shoes - George Asda, kids section.

After our scrumscious dinner, we headed back to the hotel for a quick change o outfit before heading to see the boys.

Concert outfit;
I had on the same leggings & shoes.
Top - Primark
Ear Cuff - Urban Outfitters.

Change of clothes done and we set off to the venue. Out hotel was very central to everything and the Phones4u arena being on of the things. After a short 5 minutes we hopped out the taxi - and headed in to see the delightful McBusted boys. The venue as a whole was great, atmosphere splendid but the seating arrangement was quite rubbish, we had seats up the back, which I didn't mind I've had seats at the back of concerts before and they've been fine but the phones4u arena is quite long in length so I felt very away from the action, until they came on to the "B" stage, the stage close to the back.

The boys on the "B" stage.

It was then I felt I had done a full 360 in life as Busted and McFly were the first 2 bands I had ever saw live, and I've saw many since, and it was then that it hit home... I'm getting old haha.

Concert over with we headed back to the hotel and hit the hay. We were busy bees on the Saturday.
