There are very few bands out there that generate such a happy, positive feeling at their shows - thank you for a great evening full of energy, humour and camaraderie.
Next time will bring my maltesers...

What a great night!!!

Loved the show and it was excellent to hear some older songs live again - Well worth the longish drive from Southampton.

We were singing along with every song and all the way home too!!

Thanks for a brilliant show - the only downside for me was standing beside someone with a flatulence problem -RANK!

We will definitely be back - down the front singing and pogoing along.

P.S Dougie I love the pink gutties!!

All i can say is that after 10 years of trying to see Travis live last night i finally suceeded and boy i was not disapointed, ok the venue was a bit smaller than what i am used to but i am glad as i was in the second row near the front and the whole show was excellant from start to finish, If you have not gone to see Travis yet go now stop reading this and GO!!!

Also my sister got to hold Frans finger ? (big thing for girls apparently) we were that close to the best gig i have been to since Oasis in 2005.

Well what can we say guys been seeing you live for 11 years now since you supported mansun in alleycat.
Been all over the country from brighton to birmingham (supporting oasis) to see you when i can and love it every time. Really nice to see you playing a more lively rockin set with early stuff GREAT. Even took the missus this time and she loved it too even said hello to fran the man!!
Best band to pogo to ever even if i am getting older and stiffer afterwards but a few more pints of strongbow help the recovery.
Keep it up and hope to see you end of the year on winter tour??????

this for me has to be the best gig on tour that I attended. I was like Travis are coming to my home town to play tonite!! ended up getting to the hexagon around 1pm, despite the pouring rain I waited outside got right to the front when the doors opened at 7pm, the hexagon is a really nice cosy venue, the only time before I've bin there is when I was a wee child going to see a panto!! haha oh memories!! thought brinkman sounded great as the support band again!! then it was 9 o'clock and the rocky music came on i was like yay!! that really is great entrance from the lads really great to see something different!! so selfish jean was the first song that blew me away it sounded amazing, as did eyes wide open and of course all the other songs sounded amazing too i thought turn sounded great and why does it always rain on me at the end to finish. but my highlight of the evening is when andy jumped into the crowd n gave me his guitar to hold while he jumped over the barrier!! id love a gibson les paul myaelf like that! it really was a great gig, i hope you return to play the hexagon again guys you rocked it from start to finish. had pictures again with fran, andy, dougie n neil outside afterwards, andy said thank you for holding my guitar and I remember you from bournemouth!! it really was a great gig and please return to the hexagon next time you tour!! it was amazing thank you guys will be remembered for years to come!!!
