Yeah, my only Manics gig was on the SatT tour too, it was at a festival thought so all we heard from that album was Your Love Alone... and the not-so-bad Imperial Bodybags. Also Nicky acknowledged me when I complimented his dress.
Gig I was at was part of a festival too - the Manics were the last act at the XFM Winter Wonderland in Manchester, December 2006. First time live for "I'm Just a Patsy" and "Autumnsong." 11-song set, I was near the back, so it wasn't exactly the best gig I've ever been to in my life, but anyway...I do remember Nicky saying, "I Killed the Zeitgeist, anyone?" and after some not-insubstantial cheers from the audience, Nicky replied, "You've got to be fucking kidding!" (I wouldn't have minded if James played some of his solo stuff though...).
On a related note, I did re-listen to SATT a couple of weeks ago. Still not impressed, but there's a half-decent EP in that album somewhere.
