    I scored GA Pit tickets for the show in Burgettstown, PA this morning. Hopefully work doesn't screw this up for me.
  • chittychitty Posts: 348
    Got GA pit for the gorge. Tried again 20 minutes to see what available as a gauge of how well the show is selling. Pit still available and that's a small area in front of the stage. Not a good sign

    On another note Walls just keeps getting better after repeated listens, especially Over and Find me

    The more i listen to Waste a Moment the more i think it sounds very similar to Sex on Fire.

    I have tickets to the them in Mansfield in a few weeks.  Loved the back in the day but haven't really seen them live since they started playing arenas.  Kind of surprised how the shows are underselling though.  I know the band can be fussy at times and hope that they still play a solid set even if the ticket sales were underwhelming.

    I've been disappointed in their performances since they began headlining.

    i'd have to agree 100%.  Seems like they have no energy and just going through the motions.  Solid album though.

    Me too.  I saw them once in Boston and thought they would blow the roof off the place.  They were one of those kick ass up and coming rock bands that I thought would take a page from PJ's play book.  Was very disappointed when they only played 90 minutes.  Haven't seen them since but hoping for at least 25 songs.

    Other than PJ, 90-100 minute shows seems to be the norm. There's not too many bands like PJ anymore.

    Yeah, I hear you.  I was looking at setlists from their recent European shows and looks like they often played 25-27 songs. Not expecting a pearl jam level show, but would be happy if they continued that trend for their US tour.  With 7 albums I think a 2 hour set isn't an unreasonable expectation.

    "anymore" ? What bands have disappeared that played long sets?
