WTF? I've just had an email telling me this has been moved to the O2 Acadamy, Leeds. While Leeds is a better venue, I can't really get there that easily. Poo - I might not be going at all...

Damn. I booked Wolverhampton, which has cost me a fortune in train tickets/tickets/hotel fees, because I really don't like the Dome as a venue. Could have gone to Leeds had I known, much better venue and cheaper than Wolverhampton too! Ahh well  :-\

Which is odd, coz I'm thinking I would have gone to Wolverhampton if I'd known! Wolves is a pretty nasty drive for me, all round Birmingham on the M6, but at least it's close. Doncaster was much further, but a straight and simple drag up and down the A1. Leeds not only adds nearly an hour to the journey time each way, but the thought of driving into Leeds, trying to find somewhere to park, trying to find the car park after the gig, driving round the city centre for ages trying to find the way out and a long journey home has turned a pleasant, relaxing night out into quite a stressful one. Looks like I'm finding a hotel in Leeds, which I really can't afford...

Ho hum, the perils of being a DT fan. Should have gone to High Voltage after all. They better be playing Wembley in the winter... :metal :metal :metal

I wonder why they changed from Doncaster to Leeds? Means it's a shorter journey for me and my friend like so I'm not complaining too much.

Wonder if they realised what a poor venue it is compared to Leeds :P I've been hating on the Dome in every thread that it has been brought up in and I'm from Doncaster  ::) I wish they would play Sheffield City Hall, that has to be my favorite venue I've been to and its only 30mins away, if that. Only thing is they don't seem to do gigs that often now, that all seems to be done at the Arena now, and IMO arenas aren't that great places to see a band.

Call me and old fogey, but I prefer intimate, theater like surroundings like in the City Hall:

I can only assume the Doncaster Dome was unable to meet some technical specification on the band's rider, and so the promoters were forced to switch venues. But it would be nice if DT played a few more gigs around the country - I wish American bands would appreciate that while the UK is pretty small compared to the USA, it's actully much harder and much more expensive to get around.

Saw them at the same venue in 2009 at Leeds.  Was an awesome show and great setlist.  JR and JP layed on the floor while duelling. Was really good.  :)

Haha! Yeah I remember that, MP also walked off stage half way through Erotomania (iirc) and James buggered up ARoP, singing the video version  :lol :P

I can't wait, although, when I got my tickets my mother was drunk, so she said Wolverhampton was further north... We're travelling way further than we could've done! Ah well, it's for DT, I really cannot wait.

I will be there although Im gutted that they changed the venue... I took advantage of an offer with Premier Inn and it is non refundable, so i gotta travel from Liverpool to Leeds for the gig and then drive to Doncaster because I have the room booked for two nights - was gonna be a nice little break for my birthday, now its a bit of a pain in the ass! This will only be my 4th DT show - cant wait to see what Mangini brings to the table!

Yeah, I my got tickets too. Came the same day as the Black Crowes tickets for the 12th. I always feel better once I've actually got them in my hand, rather than just having a confirmation number on an e-mail.

Just booked a hotel in Leeds for the night. Add on the train fare and this is gonna be one expensive gig!

Where are you staying out of interest?

I just booked me and my mum in the ibis hotel which apparently is a 10 minute walk from the Academy, cost £35 for 2 people and breakfast :D

I'm going posh - staying at The Queen's Hotel, by the station. £60 GBP, but you gotta treat yourself one in a while, haven't you?
