    My only small complaint is: we are all
    old and chances are have to work the next day or get back to the kids that night.  Josh finished his set at 8, why wait until 9:15 to start the show?  Let’s get going at 8:30 or even 8:45!
    Oh yeah, and the pit was waaaay packed.   
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......
  • Solid show all around. Seems like this was the longest show of the tour so far. Highlights were Wash, Hard to Imagine, Inside Job, SOLAT into Breath. Untitled/MFC, Not For You. The GA section was PACKED. I haven’t seen the GA section packed like that in a long time.

    also, shout out to the two brothers I met in the pit. Didn’t get their names. But solid guys all around. 

    Let’s see what 2023 brings.

    i'm guessing the band was waiting for more people to get in the venue and their seats.  $hitshow outside if you got to the venue after 630 pm with traffic and parking

    Question? Was the show better than the Poster?
    to be honest a Harry Style show would have been 
  • What a night! This band is firing on all cylinders! Such an awesome night with an electric crowd and an epic setlist. The setlist made it a better experience for me than MSG, but both were fantastic shows. I last saw them at SeaHearNow last Sept and as expected they sounded so much better this run. I thought Eddie's voice was stronger last night than in MSG as well. Highlights for were Wash into Oceans opener, Animal-MYM-DTE-Deep (LOVE DEEP), encore was fantastic as well with SOLAT, Breath and Leash. This was my 12th show and my wife's 10th, looking for to 13 and more in 2023!

    Also that venue is terrible to get to as many are saying, I had less traffic driving into Manhattan for MSG! Crazy...

  • I believe the last SOLAT>Breath was Wrigley 2018. 
  • I don't have much to add to what people are saying. I was in the pit Stone side and it was way too packed. I walked across the venue and entered from the other side and it was much better. 

    Animal-MYM-DTE-Deep was SO epic - as was the encore. In terms of the new songs, Retrograde seemed to create a lull, but Who Ever Said was fantastic, imo!

    Another special night!

    Gotta admit expectations weren’t real high coming into tonight but they blew me away.  Just a great show all around.  Great mix of songs and band was on fire.  So many highlights:  hard to imagine, animal, untitled/mfc, not for you. Quick Escaoe and Retrograde.  Solat and Breath back to back. Just great:  we  as a fan base are so lucky.  The best band in the world at the top of their game.  Enjoy every second of it.  It’s special 
    Why were your expectations low? Then you say “best band in the world at the top of their game”
    🤔🤔🤔

    Maybe didn’t phrase that correctly but coming off MSG and the shorter sets they had been playing didn’t expect to get the same spent feelings after a show that got in the past.  And not really a fan of the venue.  Also I keep expecting a drop off in quality as they get older and haven’t seen it yet.  They were great again
  • That’s an awesome set list.  I don’t know if the energy was as insane like MSG was but this was basically exactly the set list I would have wished for personally.  Oh well, wish I was there!

    {Talks about meeting Dr J. in ’96 and how enormous his hands are.
    Julius got an honorary degree at my college graduation, walked right by me on his way to stage and the one thing that I always remember and tell folks about was how huge his hands were.

    Another great show.  No need to compare to MSG, both were great.  But as someone mentioned above the traffic / parking was a total disaster.  Good thing I paid for VIP parking only to be told too bad, lot's full and had to find another lot.

  • Great show.  Love how they've really been mixing up the opening of the sets.  No reason to compare this to MSG a few nights ago but I will -- I thought this was better.  MSG felt like a family reunion of sorts whereas last night was just balls to the wall rock.  They absolutely knocked Breath out of the park.  Plus, no Purple Rain!

    that's probably it....I was thinking they might have been practicing a few songs but your reasoning makes more sense

    I'm going on close to 60 shows since '93, and it makes me happy when everyone's excited about a setlist although it's not so often I feel a sense of FOMO myself. 

    I REALLY wish I'd been at this show! I'm super grateful for MSG on Sunday, but this setlist is so great and I love surprises and this was a nicely shaken up setlist.

    Well done PJ, well done Camden crowd!
  • I want to thank PJ for not giving the Balt people first shot at this show...

    Glad everyone enjoyed it.  I'll enjoy the boot!
  • Fun show for sure. I was hoping for more of a dark horse setlist similar to how Newark 2010 was to MSG 2010, and I’d say this was like 2022 equivalent of that. 

    Getting parked was a f’ing nightmare, but thankfully the band started a little late so all of us stragglers could make it in on time. Setlist was great and the band sounded really good. Wish they would’ve cranked the volume a little more on the lawn cause there was a ton of people out there just chatting away at full volume, but it is what it is. Glad to have been there and look forward to the boot. 
  • Having been to Camden dozens of times, I can attest to how horrific the parking is. We usually park a mile away and walk to avoid the chaos. 

    Really wish I would have gone last night.. sold my lawn tickets last minute and am now full of regret. Awesome setlist!

    The mutual love that exists between Greater Philadelphia and the band is undeniable. Their last stop in Philly was the 2016 Ten show. Camden 2022 was another instant classic. Wait'll you hear the boot. What a setlist, what a night!

    Not sure it was mentioned but no mask for stone! Good sign.

    Really great show last night. Setlist, performance, energy, all equal to MSG in my opinion. However, much more difficult to get that same viba back from the crowd in an amphitheater such as Camden, vs MSG. Mellow openers into Animal, MYM, DTE...crushed it. They always put together a top notch performance in the Philly area and this matched or exceeded that. Stone was mask free and it felt very Stone heavy to me, Not For You, MFC, DTE, he was on fire.

    30th show and I believe it was the first time I did not hear anything new, but couldn't be happier with the show.

    HTI was my favorite song hands down and I will never get tired of Given to Fly.  I face timed my wife during gtf and she was jumping up and down with me.  :)

    That encore took a great show to the next level. Crowd was louder at msg for sure but that could just be the venue. Everyone seemed to be standing and way into the show. EV mentioned the msg show and you can tell that’s one everyone in the building will remember forever , including the band. Even Josh mentioned it during the opening set! 

     Would of loved leash after alive with all the lights on but who cares! What a fucking setlist. The tour seems to be getting better with every show. I wouldn’t worry if I was going to the next few

    People are still on this? Lol.

    They’ll give Baltimore people a chance when they play Baltimore. Contrary to what this board would have you believe, not every 10C member travels 2+ hours to go to shows. Would be unfair to those people who actually live in Baltimore.
  • My first show show was in January of 1995, the 2nd VFC show in DC.  Last night was my 47th show. I was totally blown away by the band and the crowd yet again.  Wash, Oceans, HTI, Deep, Eruption, Inside Job, SOLAT-Breath!  Seriously? Not to mention everything else.  9/14 was one for the ages.  Over the years I have been very fortunate as a fan and totally spoiled by the band and the Ten Club.  To be able to share these experiences now with my kids and see them appreciate and love the music the way that I do is so gratifying.  I just feel very fortunate this morning.  I sat with my 19 year old son in row L, dead center stage.  We were one row behind Josh K's mom and family.  Watching the band, my son, and that family enjoy themselves all night, without limit, was special.  This really is the greatest band in the world.  I feel lucky to have been on board with them for so long.  I am very grateful for all they have given and continue to give.  My son was so excited.  His first show was the Ten show in Philly in 2016.  We sat in the very back of the arena, center stage.  Last night he got to see the band up close.  His eyes were sooo wide.  His third show will be next week in Denver.  Thank you so much, Ten Club, for the amazing journey you've helped carve out for me.  This band and their music is a huge part of my life.  Thank you!




    ........and please play Last Exit in Denver!  HaHaHa!
