Rock City security kept busy during Mac DeMarco gig full of vigour, humour and heart

With his effortless charisma, oozing with a cool a lot of artists work for years to achieve, Mac DeMarco enthralled the crowd at Rock City1.

He’s on a global tour for his latest album, This Old Dog, and the venue was packed in a city the drummer dubbed ‘a tiny English town .

No matter where you walked to get a better view of the man himself, you were shouldered by someone swaying to the chilled-out vibes.

He played a mixture of his old and new tracks, alongside a mash-up of songs you never knew could work together.

Is he singing about cigarettes ? one of the crowd laughed during Ode To Vice Roy. He was, but honestly?

It didn t matter what he played; echoes of lyrics bounced between DeMarco and the audience right from the very first song.

There is a very personal element in what he sings: Cooking Up Something Good includes a line about him not knowing his dad very well. Then during In This Old Man he croons Uh oh, looks like I’m seeing more of my old man in me.

This resonated with the university crowd, as growing up you do begin to realise how your parents habits influence you.

There weren t any awkward engagements between songs either.

Towards the end, there was the ultimate mash-up of classic songs – Under The Bridge, There She Goes and the like – as he quirky danced around the stage.

The security at Rock City had a task handling the crowd-surfing, especially with members of the band joining in.

There simply was not a concert like it. It was full of vigour, humour, and heart.

Security measures that caused rugby delays are here to stay, says defiant WRU

Enhanced security measures that caused thousands of rugby fans to miss the kick off for the Australia match are here to stay, said a defiant Welsh Rugby Union on Saturday evening. Rugby fans missed kick off for the opening autumn international because of huge queues to get into the Principality Stadium on Saturday. Supporters were left standing in the rain outside several gates as a result of enhanced security checks because of the unprecedented terror threat in the UK.

Stadium chiefs had warned fans to get to the stadium early1 , with every supporter due to be searched for the first time ever . A warning was also issued stating large bags and umbrellas would not be allowed into the ground.

TV pictures inside the Principality showed scores of empty seats as the players emerged from the tunnel, with BBC TV presenter John Inverdale raising the issue on air . A crowd of more than 66,000 was due at the match. The WRU said after the match: “Enhanced security measures ensure everybody entering Principality Stadium is checked on arrival at the turnstiles . For the Under Armour Series, we have doubled the pre-game opening hours to three hours to give fans the opportunity to avoid the queues and we have made every effort to communicate to supporters to plan to arrive early and leave large bags and large umbrellas at home to avoid missing kick off.

“We received great support from all of our partners, including the media, South Wales Police and Cardiff Council, getting this message out in the build up to today s event.

“The safety and enjoyment of our visitors is of paramount importance.

“Welsh rugby fans are renowned for their contribution to the fantastic atmosphere inside the venue and vital support they give to the team on the pitch.

“Today thousands of fans enjoyed our new and improved pre-match entertainment schedule from three hours before kick-off, including live music and early bird offers at our retail units.

“It is important to stress that these security measures are here to stay and we don t want anyone to miss kick off.

“We will continue to urge supporters to allow more time for getting in to the stadium in future, as these checks are vital to the safety of all attendees.”

Thousands of fans remain in queues with just two minutes before the start of the game.

Tom Lee-wah from Cardiff said the price of the ticket didn’t warrant having to queue and miss part of the match. Another fan said she had been waiting for nearly half an hour in the rain.

“We’ve missed the great atmosphere now . Normally we like to go in and get a drink and take it all in before the match starts but we have missed all that.

“We were told we should come earlier because of the security check but we did come thirty minutes before kick off.”

Several fans took to social media to vent their frustration about the situation, with some describing scenes of chaos at the crowded gates. One, Tom Lewis, reported being stuck in a queue for an hour with no sign of movement, while fans at Gate 7 told WalesOnline they had no chance of making kick-off despite turning up 40 minutes before the scheduled start time.

Supporter Hattie Jones tweeted the Principality Stadium, saying: “We’ve been queuing for 65 minutes but are still told the queue is more than 60 minutes . Five minutes away from kick-off . Are there any refunds available.”

Cardiff MP Stephen Doughty called the crowd handling at Gate 1 an “utter shambles”. He said in a tweet he’d “never known it so bad in 18 years” and had reported his concerns to South Wales Police and the WRU.

There were also reports of female fans getting to the front of queues only to be sent to other queues by male stewards who were unable to search women. The WRU issued a detailed warning to fans earlier this week but it appears many were unaware just how thorough the checks would be in comparison to previous games. Small bags and handbags were permitted, provided they were no larger than 35cm x 40cm x 19cm.

Former Commonwealth boxing champ Nicky Booth punched Waitrose security guard who caught him stealing coffee

A boxing champion who once fought for a world title has appeared in court after he lashed out at a security guard who caught him stealing tins of coffee worth just 16. Nicky Booth was ordered to pay 100 compensation to the guard who had caught him stealing from Waitrose in Milton Street, Nottingham city centre. Booth, 37, once held the Commonwealth and British boxing1 titles as a bantamweight.

He even challenged for the IBO world title in 2001, but was stopped in seven rounds by Jose Sanjuanelo at Wembley Conference Centre.

On May 4 this year Booth, who lives in Hucknall, visited Nottingham after staying with relatives and going ‘cold turkey’ in a bid to beat drugs. He went to the Waitrose store and stole three tins of coffee worth 15.66, said Lee Shepherd, prosecuting at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court3 on Wednesday November 8.

Booth then returned to the store later that day and tried to get away with four tins of coffee worth 16.72, but was spotted. Mr Shepherd said: “The security guard tried to detain him and he was punched to the jaw . After being arrested, Mr Booth was apologetic for his actions.”

Defence solicitor Chris Saunders told the court: “He comes across as a frail character nowadays . You can see he has trouble getting his words out correctly.

“You have seen he is almost shuffling when he comes into court .

He has been out of trouble for ten years and the problem is Class A drugs . When I spoke to him, he said ‘I need some help.’

“At the moment, he has various illnesses . His immune system is currently attacking his antibodies.”

When the assault took place, Booth was with a former partner who was pregnant.
Mr Saunders added: “It was in effect a warning strike.”

Booth, of Burberry Avenue, Hucknall4, admitted assault and twice stealing coffee from the Waitrose store.

He must pay 85 prosecution costs, an identical amount as a government tax, and 15.66 to Waitrose, on top of the compensation. He must also complete a six-month drug rehabilitation course.

Deputy District Judge Richard Marshall told him: “You have been out of trouble for some time but you have obviously got yourself into trouble with drugs.”

In 2003 Booth lost a WBU title fight at Harvey Hadden Stadium against Nathan Sting, and never boxed professionally again. He retired with a record of 17 wins from 23 fights, but was later jailed for drug offences.
