Had a look at some listings most places seem to close at 11pm even the mighty Trillians.
Even some places are closing at around 6-7pm, looks like the credit crunch is hitting Newcastle too :(
One or two places open til midnight but thats about it.
Could probably grab a pint or two before last orders somewhere near the venue.

The Goose (on Percy Street) is usually open late. Sometimes pop in there for a late pint after a gig in Newcastle.

Thinking I might book into a hotel or Travelodge.
Last train to Darlington leaves at 10.45, I'm guessing that might be a bit tight.
Not fancing paying and arm and a leg for a taxi back either, plus side is I get a few drinks after :D

Sure is. Don't know about prices in Bulls but dirt cheap in The Goose.

Right, calling all those going to the gig, if you want to meet up with all us reprobates, we are still meeting in Rafferty's, Pink Lane, Newcastle.

I'll be there from about quarter to 6 onwards.

I guess that gives me an hour and a bit at home after getting home from Edinburgh after the Glasgow gig to get myself turned around and back into gig mode!!

I actually hatched this mad plan back in 1997, that I thought to myself, I'd love to do the whole tour with them sometime, then they went and bloody split up!!

Was a good job at the time as I was just about 3 months into my first ever full time job, after being an impoverished student and only working part time in a pub to make up my beer money. I'd have been paying back the debt forever then!
When they reformed in 2001 I thought wahey, plan back on, but then I saw the tour dates they were doing and thought to myself that I'd never manage 20 odd dates so it went on the back burner.

Not doing Newcastle last year lead me to thinking I want to see them, and if they won't come to me, then I have to go to them, which lead to my visits to Sheffield and Glasgow, plus the Shepherd's Bush show also persuaded me that it's quite easy to do when you think about it, travelodges are always reasonable (this whole tour, 5 hotels and the most I'm paying for any one is £43), if you book your trains the full 12 weeks in advance and be reasonable about when you want to travel (ie, not in rush hour, and preferably not fridays!!) you can get some great deals (eg Manchester to London next wednesday, leaving manc at 1:15pm---- £8- bargain (as certain comedians dressed as goths say!!!))

As I've said in my other post about this tour, 6 gigs, 5 overnight stays, 6 train journeys, all for around £400

I suppose this is the build up to one day actually doing the whole tour, you never know, it might come off (and who knows who's listening out there ;), when they hear about it, I might get invited to travel with them- hint hint, nudge nudge, :wink: :wink: , say no more)
