Nicky Wire reveals that they haven't decided on a running order for Saturday's mammoth hits set
The bassist told the NME "It's just been one of those weeks where you know you're going to be falling out with each other – but we've known each other 35 years so it's pointless having a row now. It's been really hard to put together because everyone's got their own opinions on how to play things."
Wire added: "We are 42, 43 now, so unfortunately it's not like we can just jump onstage and thrash through it like we would have done, 10 or 20 years ago."
He also reminded fans that they need to be at the show early at 7.30pm sharp: "If you don't want to miss 'Love's Sweet Exile', 'Motorcycle Emptiness' or 'Revol', you better get there on time."
The band are due to play every one of their 38 hit singles at the special Christmas show, which will be split into two halves with an interval in the middle.
