That heat woulda destroyed me tho...
It WAS devastating. I was even about 10 rows out on Stone's side, but by the 2nd encore, I was pretty much spent from the heat.
Besides that, having just returned from Stockholm and Copenhagen (and with a vicious ringing in my eyes I pray will go away - and I even use earplugs!), it's kinda hard to express in adequate words how great this band is. They do seem to just grow better and better, their shows an increasingly organic experience. Just the difference between the main sets in Stockholm and Copenhagen is pretty staggering.
Most of all, it's so, so amazing to witness and be part of the mutual respect and love between these 6 guys in the band and us on the other side of the barriers. So many bands and single musicians pull the same card, but it often feels like a shtick, not completely felt from the heart, but with PJ, the love of their fans is written plainly on their faces, expressed clearly in their words and felt purely in their music.
Yesterday was yet another roaring show, with a crowd on fire (nearly set the damn building on fire too, with that heat!), and the best I can say is what so many others have said: I can't wait to do it again!
