Yes, I met Neil after the concert in Riga recently. I was standing in the car park area outside the Arena and he came over and spoke to me and a group of Russians who had travelled from Moscow and St Petersburg to present him with some gifts. He wondered what I was doing there (I'm from Liverpool) and I told him I had come to see them and would see them later that month in Manchester (I was ill and didn't go but am going to see them in Barcelona in October instead)
Neil was very charming! But Chris remained absent. Then the took off for Vilnius in Lithuania.
I've been at this gig ! it was fantastic !And I've seen them in the street in the afternoon.:)))))
Hi - I know I'm late to post but I wanted to chime in with the others who said they were nice and friendly. I met them last year after the San Francisco concert and they chatted with and signed things for the fans after. I'd been to a signing for the release of "Catalogue" the day before and frankly it was rushed and horrible, so I'm glad I had the chance to meet them in a more relaxed way.
Anyways, I'd journaled the whole thing while it was fresh in my mind so you can go here and read all about it if you want. (It's kind of long and corny.)
