"If there's a better band than Doves in Nottingham all this week I'll abseil naked down Nottingham Castle"

Listen to Steve Lamacq's Review Of One Live In NottinghamListen

The Datsuns crowd surf What a week! It was hot and sweaty, there was crowd surfing by the bands and the fans, drum kits being trashed, and a geezer singing about darts and kebabs. So what was your highlight?

Check out what people were saying about the gigs on the Message Board and post your review...

Matt Bingham: "Doves took the roof off with what can only be described as a blinding set. By the encore I was ready to kneel down and pay homage at the feet of one of the best live bands around. If there's a better band live in Nottingham all this week I'll abseil naked down Nottingham Castle."


"My god these guys rock like beasts"

Queens of The Stone Age The Sozz: "Queens of The Stone Age - my god these guys rock like beasts. Just brilliant. Loud, relentless and deceptively tuneful. An excellent performance. Hope that came across on the radio. If you get the chance, go and see them."

"They managed to hold it together very well, amid cries of "have a fight!"

Pete and Carl of The Libertines Rob Lundie: "The Libertines were great, and although they were not the band I came to see, I still loved their performance. They managed to hold it together very well, amid cries of "have a fight"! Up the Bracket was definitely one of the high points of the evening."

"Yes, Craig went insane at the end!"

Craig from The Vines When The Vines burst onto stage, madness took over the crowd. By the end of Outtatheway the audience was captivated, dancing to the tune of their new god - Craig. All in all, a great show...the Vines finished the evening on a massive high. And yes, Craig went insane at the end."
