Manchester, so much to answer for…

See Tickets are listing a BSP gig at The Roadhouse in Manchester on the 3rd September. Although it has yet to be officially confirmed, should it go ahead tickets will presumably be on sale through Ticketline shortly, so you might be better off waiting for them to list it instead of using the horrendous See Tickets.

In other news, it would appear that the GIVE Festival in Ayr – formerly Ayr Guitar Festival, where BSP were due to play on the 2nd September – has been cancelled. Oh well.

Update 11/07/06: The Manchester gig has been moved to the 2nd September. Any tickets already bought for the original date remain valid.
