    My show is tonight! So excited to see Billy again and I get to take my daughter this time!
    Are we getting something out of this all-encompassing trip?

    Seems my preconceptions are what should have been burned...

  • So, am I the only one that finds it ironic Billy is playing The Garden on Good Friday?

    Guessing Only the Good Die Young will be on the set list.

    Taking my 3 oldest sons. Should be a blast.

    Ha! I would love to hear OTGDY!

    See you there! Well, not really, but you know what I mean...Can't wait!

    If you can get to one, I highly recommend this tour. He is in fine form and these shows are so much better and different than the 2008-2009 shows. Louisville show was amazing and the crowd was really into it.

  • 2 great quotes from the Howard Town Hall:

    "My political opinion should not influence anybody. In fact I don't want anybody to think the way I think.:

    "I don't like somebody tellin' me how to think." (why he doesn't do political songs)

    Very sound advice.

    Not sure. Was watching the Rangers game and they were promoing it all night (well, until middle of 2nd period when it was obvious there was going to be a game 7).

    Just checked - looks like no. All the commercials said was starting in May. Right now, MSG has Boxing listed all night for May 3. Maybe, that's the default and it will change.

    No problem.

    This was obviously all part of the Franchise Deal. Can you imagine how much Dolan shelled out to get Billy to do all this? I mean, that's basically 15 or so concerts released to regular TV. Not sure what they are or when they are from, but that's quite an archive release one way or the other. Lump that in with 20K fans a month filling The Garden. Yowzers.

    That's a great payday for them.

    Ya know, he's actually only released a small handful of shows on VHS/DVD (Nassau clip above me, Yankee Stadium and the recent Shea Stadium show). Maybe MSG aired some footage from the 12 Nights shows sometime, but it's either going to be a lot of repeats or a lot of surprises. Thanks for the heads up.

    Love Billy. Have had the chance to see him live twice in the last 3 years. Will catch him every time he comes to NC. What a catalogue to pull from. No need for new tunes. Love when he gives the audience choice of two.

    Anyone else do any shows during his MSG residency run?  Just did the show Friday night, his 99th during the residency.  Wasn't sure what to expect. Haven't seen him since the early 90s but damn he sounded great.  Great show and was really glad I got to see him before the residency ends in July.  So many songs that take me back.  So good.
