I paid £25 on the FM pledge site to get VIP access to show last night which involved turning up at 3.30pm, watching FM soundcheck and then meet and greet after.
To be honest I only did it after Vega were announced in the hope that they might be around too and I wasn't disappointed!

Got let in 3.30pm and watched FM soundcheck till 5pm which was great. Stood and chatted to Pete and Merv who were both warm, funny and amusing guys. We were made to feel really welcome and part of the whole gang.

FM's tour manager said that we would probably have to leave venue after soundcheck and then queue up with the 'normals' to get back in but no one in the venue or from the band was that fussed in clearing us out so we stayed and watched Vega soundcheck too, which was great.

Met Nick and got stuff signed and then went and had a chat with rest of band. Again they were warm and welcoming and were really interested in my thoughts on the new CD.
Nick did say they were slightly disappointed that the new cd hadn't received more attention and feedback. I wondered whether with it being released at same time as WET, FM and Bon Jovi it had suffered from a packed schedule.

We left at 6pm to grab a burger and were amused to find Jem Davies, FM keyboard player huddled in a shop front in the town scoffing a bag of chips! Hardly glamorous!

Waved our VIP passes on returning a to the Venue at 6.30pm rather than queue up and we let in!!!!!

Great gig, Serpentine were great, Vega awesome and FM slick and very strong.

We then got to hang around an hour or so after chatting to bands again, getting photos and what not.

Was a great experience made all the better by both FM and Vega being really welcoming and friendly and by the venue not being worried about having us around.
For £25 I'd recommend anyone getting on FM's website and seeing if they have any more spaces for the rest of the tour.

Ps Vega rocks!!!!!!!!!!!
