    LP usually plays about an hour and a half to an hour and 40 minutes, add in time for 2 more bands and it'll probably be over at about 11:30, that's my best guess.

    Anyway, wrong forum, so *moves to Around the World*

    it was around 10:40 when the Sheffield gig finished. LP came on at 9:00, but there was only one support act, Biffy Clyro, Julien-K didnt show up because of 'personal reasons'

    Well when I saw them a couple years ago it didn't end 'til 1:40 in the morning. That was with the doors opening at 7:30 and Boy Hits Car and Lostprophets playing as well, so I guess it kind of does make sense.
    Especially since Lostprophets did not know when to stop:-
    "Hey guys, we've gotta go pretty soon, but you do wanna hear a couple more songs first?"
    *Entire crowd pretty much goes* "NOOOO!"
    "Okay, we're gonna play you some more songs."
    "Awww ferchristsake..."

    Don't get me wrong, they're an alright band. They just wouldn't go away and their set in Cardiff ended up being just as long as LP's, if not longer.

    Biffy Clyro started at 20h00 in Paris. They left 20 minutes later because noone was reacting :lol:
    For LP it went from 21h05 to 23h35.

    No I don't think a lot of people knew them. Yeah it was quite sad because they were really giving all they could (the frontman even spoke a bit French) but I suppose the French fans didn't want to hear that sort of music before LP.
    I only knew Saturday Superhouse (that's the only song that made people jump a bit) but the other songs seem cool :)

    Q...

    I came here to post the same question--I'm going to the show at MSG (FREAKING OUT), the tickets say "7:00PM", and I know there are opening acts (neither of which I care about), so I'm wondering about when LP will come out, and how long they'll play for. I have to work the next morning and I'm over an hour from the city so I'm hoping they're done by like 12...

    Coheed and Cambria is one of the openers--did anyone see them? Did they play for long? I actually *HATE* them so I hope not. Never heard of the other guys, Chiodos... I hate the fact that I have to work, otherwise I'd want the show to go on all night.

    So is my hope to be out of there by 12/1230 reasonable, or am i screwed.

    Thanks!!
