Thread: A favor for Tuesday's showgoers

kevinumberger - 10/28/2014 at 02:40 AM

No....

I don't need a ticket but rather a favor---while I enjoy hearing about the music played---I wanna hear about the atmosphere.....both inside and out.....crowd and band.....and security guards....

I will soak it all up.....

Thanks and have fun...

Really wish I was there....

I can't say tonight's atmosphere was electric but it was energetic and happy and strong. It was kind of like going to a professional sports event when you have no doubt your team is going to win. I think everyone was certain that tonight was going to be an exceptional show. For my money the band delivered.

The outside atmosphere was bustling but not mayhem. I took the long way to the theatre and walked out of my way down some of the darker streets to "think" a little before I went in. All was calm a couple blocks away from the theatre.

The entrance was kind of wierd due to the scaffolding. I don't think the police prescense was larger than years past but it was more visible in that the cops lined the gauntlet of the aluminum scaffold.

I didn't leave my seat for the break. Maybe I missed some of the electricity and mayhem.

The show was spot on.

Well said - I ageee. All the rumors of a long show went away when they said goodbye after the one tune encore. We'll see what they are saving for the last night. I don't have a complaint - they were firing on all cylinders from the start and Gregg was in good voice.

I will admit I would have liked a "Layla" encore. It seemed like after those seering versions of "Dreams" and "Whipping Post" that "Layla" would have fit. It would have fit the key and the tempo and the energy.

But "No One Left to Run With" was great! Seeing Derek playing Duane's guitar juxtaposed against Duane playing the same guitar was really cool. I will always have that memory.

after saturday's show (my last)---i thanked a few security guards for not throwing me out for puffing inside the theatre for the last 6 years.......

I got busted red handed last night. the dude just picked the doobie up off the floor and never said boo to me. I was scared to death to get booted. he done me right

Never smoke a joint in the theatre.....

They see the big cloud of smoke and they are on ya...

Use a one hitter and blow discreetly......works every time for me...

Last couple of years they would mark your ticket the first time they caught ya---the second time they would toss ya...

This year---the 3 groups around me that got caught were just told no to do it...

Security never saw me doing it so I thanked them for it...

then of course, there is the guy openly selling brownies with the lights up


(I assume he is still there - if you have sat in the orch, you know who I mean)

The Brothers tend not to offer much stage banter
Usually at the end of the show Gregg will finally say something typically a "Thanks a lot and God Bless"
Any chance of them acknowledging the end or will it be business as usual?

I have a favor to ask too.... stand up and shake your butt all night for all the brothers and sisters who can't be there with you having fun!


babypeach318 - 10/28/2014 at 06:49 PM

oh and one more... a ticket for tonight so I can be there shaking with ya!
