    Q. Did the band know that Saturday 1909 fans had to leave early to catch last trains from Victoria leaving at 23.32 ,therefore missing from 22.30 onwards , what a shame it was going so well , even with the rain...

    The Oracle replies:

    I don't mean to sound rude at all so forgive me if the written word comes across that way... but I am quite sure that no, the band do not know that, or how the entire contents of each venue got home over the last 16 months. In all that time of touring this is the first Q that I have received mentioning trouble with the journey home. Anchorman gave the Wembley stage times in advance so that fans could work out their logistics and I'm afraid to say that as with every gig, concert, film, play or any performance it is the same; travel arrangements are the responsibility of the ticket holder. The finish time was not unusually late for such an event either. I am glad you enjoyed what you did see, though it really is a shame that other arrangements weren't made in advance so that you could see it all; I am sure there were alternatives...?

    Q. I just caught the last ten minutes of the South Bank Show . No-one told me it was on!!! Is there any way I can get to see it?? Looked really interesting. : (

    The Oracle replies:

    I beg to differ Brendon as Anchorman announced the South Bank Show with transmission times more than once on this site as well as via Twitter! Being as you're from the U.K you'll be able to watch it online but I'm sorry that this is not the case for all overseas fans.

    Q. Dear Oracle, PLEASE ANSWER THIS QUESTION! It's been eating at me all day and will continue until I find the answer! In the Live Photo Blog @ Wembley, during the soundcheck vid, what song is the band playing? ~Thank you!:)

    The Oracle replies:

    The reason you may not have recognized the song played during the soundcheck is because it is a very different version of God Put A Smile Upon Your Face. You can't actually tell from that clip at all but if you've been to a live show you'll recall it was one of the Stage B songs.
