Default Re: Toronto question...

Just got back after a 3 and a half hour drive home.

Fucking ridiculously AMAZING.

I think because everyone I talked to or have heard from said the venue sucked I was expecting a lot worse then I thought it was going to be.

I didn't mind the venue at all.

I was on John Paul Jones' side deep people from the rail in front of the speakers my ears are DONE FOR.

New Fang and Gun Man were my fucking gavourite.

Opening with Elephants was unreal. Grohl was a maniac on drums. One of the best times I've had at a concert in awhile.

OH.MY.GAWD.

ABSOLUTELY MIND BLOWING!!!

That was one of the best concerts I've ever seen! Fortunately I was at the rail with a clear sightline to Grohl for 95% of the show. That man is a maniac! Warsaw blew me away! Elephants too!

I got JPJ's bass pick! My buddy and his girlfriend got a setlist!

Awesome! Just AWESOME!


P.S. - No recording from me, too risky. Sorry.

Amazing!!! The best thing about this band is that EVERY member of the band is interesting to watch. I was second row on Alains side, perfect view...I think it's hilarious that they bailed on the shitty Edge LOL....lots of great vids on YouTube.

Interesting. In Nashville, Sean (Chris's guitar tech) told us that they'd been told they were forbidden to give out setlists. Hmm.

Dave called the Edge and apologized and (i didn't hear it but) apparently Dave asked what they'd have to do to make up for it, and Bookie went "play the studio next time you're in town" and after Dave relayed the message to the other guys, you could hear Josh saying "yeah sure whatever". LOL. Love it. Even if that last part was made up, I'm going to believe it was true.

god, local radio stations are so embarrassing. "You're listening to the world famous Edge 102" Uhhh, world famous? "Hey this is Dean Blundel, and Howard Stern sucks - we're so much better" Uhhh, if by sucks you mean, you've ripped off his whole shtick, bits and never got 1/1000th of his audience, then yes, you're a lot better.

I was SO happy when i found out they blew them off...from the whole ghey petition to get them to come, to the 'oh you have to win to get in when they come visit' bullshit it was just all kinds of wrong.

This guy definitely has the best set of videos from the gig and maybe even the best Vultures videos I've seen on Youtube.

He's a couple feet in front of me too.

Glad he shared.

Also, according to a comment on one of those Youtube videos.

A person said they talked to Homme after the show and that a December/January show may be a possibility.

Hahhahaha, yeah it was definitely one of the more rowdier concerts Ive been too.

Yeah, I know you cant go to a concert without getting pushed around and bothered but it seemed worse then the more recent shows Ive gone too.

But yes, in Toronto.

That sucks Jenny! They confiscate it?

He said he's swamped with work right now and has 2 other recordings to do first. He WILL do it, not sure when, but by end of the year for sure (sounds far away, but only 71 days till Christmas, so...). Maybe another will surface sooner, not sure.

We shall wait and see...

Can't complain though, b/c I had an awesome view anyway!
