    Not to get away from an amazing two nights. But... As i speculate to two future shows at MSG... Ed and Company are all showmen. I'm sure they realize going from Philly to the Garden (which they havent played proper in some time) that they need to attack it. How they attack, will be awesome to find out. I spent 1500 on tix for my wife and myself through stub hub or 4 shows... Money is tough but how can you put a price on this experience

    When they did breakerfall get right after release I was allowing myself to believe we might get binaural next.

    So emotional. I've never seen so many grown men cry. Sooooooooo intense. Loudest crowd I've ever heard. Hands down my new #1 show.

    While I may prefer vs or no code, ten is THE album to play in its entirety. Not a dull fuckin moment and every single person in attendance knows this record. We've witnessed history.

    Insane.

    Wow!

    Although when they started to play once again, I thought we might be getting ten and told a few people around me, then even flow came on and yep it was happening. Got chills during black and release.

    I thought we might be getting binaural after that when they started "breaker fall" which would have been epic! Other highlights for me we're who you are, bee girl and comfortably numb.

    Also Ed wearing the Pete rose jersey was pretty cool and mentioning the guys at wmmr.

    Thought I was gonna miss this one. Finding a single ticket was a bitch. Waited all day and got one outside an entrance at 8:30ish. Walked into the first opening i saw and ended up front row next to the pit. Band came out as soon as i got to a spot and i proceeded to witness the greatest pj show of my 16 years seeing pj shows. Nothing else to say. I feel so fortunate right now. Incredible night. I dont care what the jaded snobs say, nothing brings it like ten. Cheers!

    This was Ten night of course. But for me it was also Mike McCready night. He was the best I've ever seen him I think. He blew me away on nearly every tune The band sounded pretty much perfect all the way through.

    It was my 20th show. I'll never forget it. Love the love for WMMR in both shows.

    Don't usually comment on shows I've been to, but I feel compelled to join the party tonight.
    EPIC SHOW! Was with my son for my 18th show, his 3rd. After Even Flow started, he mentioned that they might be doing Ten. Was incredible to see/hear it unfold, especially with him! First time seeing Deep, and it was probably my highlight. Still amazed that they've been playing RVM for 23 years, and they kill it every time. Have to love a band that can cover a classic rock song like Comfortably Numb, and a punk song like Sonic Reducer and give them both justice! These guys continue to amaze me. I feel fortunate to live close to Philly where they have played so many amazing shows over the years. Looking forward to MSG on Sunday! Thanks to the band and the crowd for an amazing night!

    We were all emotional at this one! My two sons and my wife...in tears at certain points of the show. I was too. This album means so much for my wife and I. Played it over and over during the college years.

    I'm still in awe. My other requests don't even matter tonight.

    Show #25 for me tonight! Had 10club tickets in section 102 with Joe!

    Wow. GREAT fucking show. The energy in that room was intense. That was the loudest crowd I can remember. Mike McCready ripped every single solo. Ed was so emotional and in a great mood.
    The setlist was top notch. I don't need many rarities. I just want solid songs that flow well. This set was that.

    When Master Slave started, we couldn't imagine them following with anything other than Once. The moment they unraveled the banner was such a "is this really happening" moment. I did not think that type of thing was ever done for bands. With the number of sold out shows being 10, it was an obvious connection, but I was hesitant that they would only play Once and then go into something else. After the first couple notes of Even Flow in the #2 spot I knew they were playing the full album. Alive with the lights off, that early in the set, with the loudest crowd, really got it going, and made me happy that the final encore would require changing.

    I take back what I said in an earlier thread about not wanting to hear a full album. That shit was crazy cool. I found myself so pumped for the songs on the album (Oceans, Garden, Deep, Release) that the requirement for a novelty in the setlist could wait for the encores was ok.

    All of the solos Mike played tonight were UNREAL. Even Flow, Alive, Black, Porch, Comfortably Numb, RVM, Yellow Ledbetter. My face was throughly melted. Mike Is God.

    Loved Bee Girl and All Or None. Made me feel like I was in Benaroya because of the number of times I have watched that video.

    So glad they played Breakerfall, Evolution, and Leash. I could do without Just Breathe, but it was a great version, and at this point I was literally up for anything.

    I was at 8 of the 10 Philadelphia sell out shows! (2009x4, 2013x2, 2016x2) So cool to be a part of it.

    I'm so happy, this show was my favorite show ever. I'm a little sad because I don't think the next 2 shows can top this one... but i guess that's ok.

  • I eat my words about not wanting to see a full album performed, this show was incredible. By the third song it had an encore feel to it but at the start of the show, so crazy. I want to shake the hand of the person at the arena who had the idea to get that banner made, unbelievable that they didn't plan it until today. Can't wait to see what Monday night at MSG has in store. Got back home to central NJ a half hour ago and can't sleep. Speechless.

    After a false start last night, we got Ten!!
    Ten!
    Ten!
    Ten!
    They tore the roof of this shit!
  • Goddamn. That was awesome. What a show to be in the pit for! Anybody mention Matt totally screwing up garden yet?
  • vitodacatvitodacat Posts: 424
    Just got back home to NY from the show. This was #39 for me and just wow. Mind blown. When Once kicked it off, with the banner, all around me thought that Ten was going to happen. Just incredible. People were just going bananas. Then Breakerfall, could Binaural be next ? ( nah). Energy in the building tonight was off the charts, especially after it was obvious Ten was being done. Props to all those around me in section 123, right on top of Mike. I feel like he melted my face off tonight. It's some experience to be that close to what that man does.

    Off to MSG for the big 4-0. How can this be topped ?

    I agree with all of this and I'm happy you typed it so I don't have to haha.

    My first time hearing Bee Girl, All or None and Comfortably Numb. They were all towards the very top of my want list and they were played within a four song span.

    Ten in its entirety felt more special than I ever thought it could. I didn't even pee during even flow :lol: Alive as the third song, Black at 5, Oceans at 7 and especially Release at 11, made my twenty first show feel so different from all the others and I'll never forget it.

    This is a top 3 show for me. It has to be. I just don't know where exactly it ends up, not that it matters.

    96th show for me. I've been to all the Philly shows (except Dobbs). For my own accounting I consider the Camden shows as "South Philly sellouts". Which pushes the banner number higher. This will be up there though with Spectrum '03 and nights 3 and 4. In '09.

    Ten was amazing. Mike lit everything on fire tonight. I really liked all or none. Throw your hatred down is so kick as. Stone and Mike actually jammed together on this one. Who you are is always a gem.

    Great job, Philly crowd. Northeast crowds make these shows so much better. Sorry, rest of country, you got no soul.
    90 shows and counting...some of my favs: Randall's Island night 2, Milwaukee '95 night 2, Hawaii '06, St Johns '05, PJ20!

    Wow....just wow.

    My highlights:
    What was a special night, Seeing the reactions of those around me when everyone realized what was happening with Ten, I suspected after they dropped the banner and kicked off with Once...after EF it was on.

    I thought the radio shout out was cool, Let The Records Play and Spin The Black Cirle back-to-back...I appreciated the theme there, well played guys.

    The first encore was a bit unique as others have pointed out with songs from Ten out of play....Just Btreathe was really special for my with and I as it is the song she walked down the aisle to at our wedding. I thought Given To Fly really got the crowd going and Ed's story leading up to Comfotably Numb was great...as was the song, hope to hear them cover it again.

    For the second encore it was Baba to me, wow loved that performance and Mike slayed most of the night...I saw the pit explode when a kid on his dad's(?) shoulders caught one of EV's tambourines out of the air. The Star Spangled Banner was a great way to end...thanks to the guy who brought the American Flag I suppose?

    Another random comment, the video feed seemed a lot more "produced" maybe than in years past? Not a knock, I really enjoyed the unique angles and perspectives it added.
