    Great show. I had 6th row center. One of the best setlists of the tour and one of my favs out of 40. Encore was something else.

    This show was EPIC!  I invited a friend with me and told him that my seniority usually pulls around rows 25-30.  When i picked up my tickets and saw row C, I remember saying rows probably start at AA-ZZ then A-Z.  Nevertheless, I gave my tickets to the usher and followed her down all the way to the 3rd ROW, dead center!.  Sure that was partially the reason this show was EPIC, but mostly because the band was on fire!  So i don't know if the ticket thing was done on purpose or not, but the people up front ROCKED OUT the entire night!

    A top show for sure. My Morning Jacket opened and Ed came out a played a few with them!!! I remember telling a friend who was also going, to not be late.  He missed Ed.  And I hated to say, I told you so.  Epic version of crazy Mary.  Also, PJ thought enough of the show to put it on iTunes.  Now we’re just f#cking with you ;)

    I wasn’t at this show but I remember the uproar/happiness on the message board the day of the show when tickets were being picked up, depending on which side of the ticket switch you were on.  Apparently this was in response to the and not being happy with the lame crowd response from people that are always up front due to seniority at the Chicago shows.

    Wasn't that Pete Townsend of The Who, birthday????  I think, I remember Ed mentioning something about it.  The band was on fire that night! Great set list!!!!  I missed out on Ten Club tickets, so I picked up some lower bowl seats in the back. Amazing show!!!

  • Yes, some guy in row 5-10 yelled out Happy Birthday Pete during the preset, and Ed basically switched songs he was going to play right there on the spot and the night seemed to take an awesome tone from there forward.

    I remember not having an issue with tickets at all.  This was in the middle of a run for me including Chicago Cleveland and Detroit and just remember the comment from Ed about it being great and when you go back and listen to the boot you might not hear how special it actually was.  Also a great opener in MMJ at their best.   The Happy Birthday Pete came from the crowd for sure.  This is top 5 of nearly 40 for me.  Their return to Grand Rapids after the VFC!
    Go Get 'Em Tigers!

    Wasn't there but I love the bootleg.  So what exactly happened with the tickets???  They did the opposite for seniority??

    I was just thinking to myself wrong show, that happened at the MSG show I went to in 2010. But then I realized that they were both the same date. So.. two birthday shoutouts for Pete.
  • I've seen PJ 12 times and this show ranks in my top three. I benefited from the ticket reshuffle
    and ended up in row 6 right in front of Stone. Awesome setlist with Off He Goes, Around the Bend, Parting Ways and Hard to Imagine played in a row in the first encore. And I got a Stone pick to boot! Looking forward to the podcast.
    The have's have not a fucking clue

    3rd row center (a beneficiary of the mix up).  I got Ed's pick after the pre-set AND got a sip from the wine bottle during Crazy Mary.

    leep
  • Fell "victim" to the ticket "mixup," and being an entitled snot I was pretty upset early on.  Got over it pretty quickly after that set though!  
  • NewJPageNewJPage Posts: 2,639
    I'm not sure if I benefited or not. I ended up row 6 with a 192xxx number. I've had 5th row at shows prior with that # so I didn't suspect anything weird

    Top 10 for me as well! Loved this show! Favorite show of the 2006 tour hands down.
    Do you know what it's like to fall in the mud and get kicked... in the head... with an iron boot? Of course you don't, no one does. It never happens. Sorry, Ted, that's a dumb question... skip that.

    If you believe the story the band wasn’t impressed with the same contingent of traveling fans not responding to the new material live. Someone bumped into Tim at the Chicago shows and apparently he alluded to a change “at the next show.” Distribution began with 10C number 130,XXX in Row A seat 1 on the floor and worked back - everyone below that number ended up in the wings. My number is 131,XXX and my brother and I were front row between Ed’s and Stone’s mics. Whether it was the newer people up front, the energy in general inside the arena, or just the fact the band was completely dialed in and ready to impress during the main set...it made for a blistering display. In hindsight certainly seemed like the band wanted to test whether the crowd would respond as enthusiastically to the first encore and we didn’t disappoint. I remember thinking it was a fast paced set but it didn’t feel like a rushed show - the band was taking their time. On a personal note it was fun watching the band interact with each other and the fans. At one point Ed walked up to the front of the stage to pass out a guitar pick - wasn’t trying to get his attention but when he looked over I pointed to my brother and Ed walked up and handed the pick to him. When the band left the stage after the 1st encore Ed walked by and I shouted out “Big Wave!” and without breaking stride he shouted out “Savin’ it!” Lastly just when I thought things couldn’t get more interesting at the 58 second mark:

    Immediately after catching it I handed it to my brother and didn’t think twice. During Yellow Ledbetter while Mike was doing his thing Ed was hanging back behind Stone when he looked over and noticed my brother was holding the tambourine. At this point I’m watching Mike completely oblivious but my brother makes eye contact with Ed who mouths to my brother “Are you here together?” and my brother gives Ed a thumbs up. Ed takes a few steps forward then turns around and calls out for a new tambourine and next thing I know I’m looking up because I sense someone standing over us. Without hesitating my brother hands me back the tambourine and Ed hands him his very own. We’re standing there smiling after Ed turns and walks away then suddenly he’s facing us again and motions for my brother to toss the tambourine back to him which he does without hesitating. Ed takes the tambourine and wipes his sweaty face with it before tossing it back to my brother. We still laugh about it to this day. A year later at the TIFF premiere of Body of War Ed was kind enough to sign each of them for us.

    Its shows like this that have me REALLY longing for arena tours and seated floors.   What a show. 

    (Side comment, I think they should do first 3 rows as the lottery.  Need to get more energy up front.   GA lately seems like its the same 200 people up front for each show, who are so tired by the time the show starts because they havent slept from camping out an sitting on the street all day.  Just go back to seats, make the front 3 rows lottery, and seniority can take care of the rest.  And everyone can enjoy the cities, or if they REALLY want to stand in lines all day, make it for merch)
