The League of Gentlemen Live 2018 - anyone gone or going?

Caught them a few days back and they were terrific.

With them unlikely to do much together after this,
they're well worth catching while you still can

Going in a couple of weeks. I don't think the massive arena in Leeds is the right place though.

That's good to know. Without too many spoilers, is there a traditional LOG narrative about it, or is it more sketch based? Or a mixture?

Really looking forward to it now..

First half is very much a greatest hits - just the three of them in dinner suits doing stuff like Go, Johnny, Go, Go, Go, Go a la Live at Drury Lane.

Second half is a more elaborate (costumes! sets! SFX!) show that follows on from last year's Xmas specials.

Hope you aren't planning on sitting in the front row or in an aisle seat!

Hahaha, I wish. No, we're at the back unfortunately but its only the Manchester Apollo, so it's not that big.

But I've learned from years of Edinburgh Fringe, never sit at the front.
