rock3 St. Louis tonight rock3

Have a blast! Make sure to take note of what gets played in the rotating slots...Nashville seems to have dropped the ball on that one :P

Enjoy tat! :thumbsup:

Powerage, love that second to last shot of Ed. He may not have jumped off the stairs that night but you got a damn good shot of him on the stairs.

Thanks, I really like that one too...one of my favorites I took at that show. Here's the rest of mine, and they're all on my page on Facebook now ;)

Had a great time @ the St. Louis gig. Got to the arena and they had opened up a section on each side of the stage and allowed us to upgrade our tickets for free. So, we went from being 3 rows from the last row in the building to 10th row on Wolfie's side of the stage. Awesome seats. Made me wish I would have brought the camera. I had too much of a good time rocking out to play super close attention to the setlist. I know they opened with Unchained and I do know that Women In Love was played. Pretty sure they played The Full Bug & Girl Gone Bad too ( but don't quote me on that).
Dave's voice sounds pretty tore up, but somehow he makes it work. I had a blast!!

So how'd everyone do for the current round of buying tickets? I had 7th row floor, dead center for Rochester, but Ticketmaster "encountered an error" and booted me back. Lost those seats, and ended up with 15th row lower bowl, just a couple rows behind where my Pittsburgh seats were. I can deal with that B)


London I did pretty good through a presale.Ed's side lower stands,right where I like to be,so that's cool.

I know a security guy at the venue so I made sure he knows the deal on VH's relaxed policy on filming/photography.
The JLC security crew are pretty hardcore,but he said he'd look into it "if the band doesn't care,we don't...we just enforce the policy's they lay down".

I told him the relaxed policy was even posted on the ACC website leading up to the Toronto show...so we'll see,hopefully all is cool. :)

I'd assume the policy will stay the same, haven't heard anything to think otherwise yet B)

Yeah I'm sure it will be...just wanted to plant that info in the guy's brain though.He's pretty cool (and a fan) so I'm sure he'll look into it.

Had a good time in Vancouver last night. Eddie, Wolfgang and Alex were really tight, but Diamond Dave was fairly shit vocally although he sort of made up for it with his charisma. The setlist was way better in 07, along with Dave's voice, however Eddie wasn't as good as he was last night. They should have really replaced some of the songs they played last night with Mean Street, Jamie's Crying, Blood and Fire, and You and Your Blues. The concert kind of lagged in the middle due to the old album tracks they played. I even sat down for a couple songs at one point, though that had a little something to do with dehydration from drinking the afternoon away.

Dave pulled out a "I forgot the fucking lyrics" on Chinatown. I'm guessing him saying that is more of a gimmick though as I've seen him say it before.

Blood And Firs is incredible live...I really wish they'd have permanently replaced TTWN with it. I'm really glad to be able to say I saw it live though, because it doesn't seem like it'll make a return to the set B)

No, he legitimately doesn't know his shit on China Town. The band sounds great on it, and Dave fucks it up one way or another every single night. For the record, he pulled out the "I forgot the lyrics" line on Girl Gone Bad in Toronto.

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for Blood and Fire in London. Doesn't seem likely though. :(

I agree with China Town. Dave isn't strong on it anyways. It's probably smart of him to pull the "I forgot the fucking words" on China Town because it makes it seem like it's a skit which covers up the fact that he actually doesn't know the words to the damn song. It's too bad because Eddie, Wolf, and Alex absolutely nail it. For that reason, I enjoy seeing it in the set but wouldn't mind it getting replaced. It's been the song that's continually off for Dave. Lose it I say! Play Mean Street instead so I can die a happy man after London.

If they drop it, it's certain to get replaced with another ADKOT song. I'd like to see As Is, but that probably wouldn't be any easier for Dave. Big River, anyone?

As Is would be nice, but hey, I wouldn't complain about Big River. One of my favorites off the album.

As Is or Big River would be awesome. I love both. I have a feeling they'd throw in Bullethead or something though.
