Yeah, there's a cloak room as you walk the corridor to the floor area downstairs.

I assume they'll take a bag.

Looking forward to this, anyone got an idea of stage times since?

Working off the Belfast times already posted I'd guess Clutch will be on at 9.15?

Approximate times as follows: doors open 7pm, The Mighty Stef 7.25pm to 7.55pm, Planet of Zeus 8.10pm to 9pm, Clutch 9.30pm. We would expect the show to be over around 11pm. Please note, times subject to change as always and should be used as a guideline only.

So what's the Olympia like as a venue? I've heard stuff about them separating the front and back of the standing area with a barrier? I usually would like to wander into gigs about 30/40 mins before the band starts and have no bother getting up close but does the Olympia set up mean you'd need to be there early?

The barrier is only for the first 5 or 6 rows. After that it's just pick a spot and stand.

To be fair, there isn't really a bad viewpoint in the standing area - unless you're lazy and get hemmed into one of the back corners.

The first balacony has good views but if you're over six feet tall (like me) forget it. Those seats would cripple a midget.

Yes, it´s technically split up in 3 sections. Way up the front, for which you will need to be early as they will hand you a wrist band to move in and out of that "bucket". Then you have the second space in which you can wander around freely and behind that the third.

And security are absolute pricks in the place so no point in trying to chance it.

Had a peek at some setlists recently and without saying too much, I would bet we'll get the majority of the new album played. I wouldnt be too disappointed either if that happens to be the case. Theres just so many songs you can pick out from their 10 odd albums, that you'll never get everything you want to hear. Wouldn't mind if they dropped the encore of Electric Worry and One Eyed Dollar and threw in a couple others instead. Seems to be the most common staple to the set usually.

The only way you'd ever get a perfect Clutch set would be if they played for about 4 hours.

Ain't that the truth!

The Olympia is the worst thing I have ever known.
