    Great show (and Deep Sea Diver was amazing!), but I was disappointed in the general experience for two reasons: 1) To me, it didn't sound like the acoustics were significantly improved from those of the original Key Arena. I don't know the appropriate technical terminology to use to explain what I mean; it just sounded loud rather than clear/crisp. 2) The visuals on the screen were cool but, since I was too far away from the stage to see anything well, I would have preferred to see the band projected up there during the entire show. To be fair, maybe my expectations were unrealistic, based on the venue, so I'm just sharing this to find out if anyone else felt this way, and/or to get some feedback (no pun attended) from those who didn't, and were in similar seats (I was in 101) I am REALLY grateful I got to go at all and, like I said, they were awesome. I'm seeing them Thursday night from the same location, so hopefully I'll enjoy it better now that I know what it will be like.

    It was a great N1 in Seattle. Satan's Bed was a fantastic unexpected surprise and finished off Vitalogy for me outside of the "weird" songs(although I do truly want to hear Bugs and don't consider it one of those). It was a bit of a emotional rollercoaster from the tear inducing MOTH, to SB to a cathartic rocking Rearview, but I loved the whole ride. 
    The only sour note to the evening being JB, which dropped this show to a 7/10 and should just be dropped altogether.
    Sat side stage which was a great view and truly cool to see the screen reflected on the stage around the guys. Crowd was solid, can't wait for N2.

    Seattle had GA, P1 & P2 as seat options, so if you picked P2 you can't really bitch as they explained what that option meant. I got a P2 seat through the lottery and then was able to upgrade through drops. Sold my previous tickets as I moved without issues. I'm for one am super grateful that I had confirmed at cost seats from the get go.

    Anything you lose from being honest
    You never really had to begin with.


    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.

    Did say anything about Bill Walton? Did they dedicate song to him at all?

    We should be given the best seats in the house, no if and or buts about it. 
    A $35/yr membership that is open to anyone should entitle us to the best seats in the house? That’s an absolutely ludicrous statement. The shot at GA (or even P1 without the hassle of upgrading) easily justifies the cost. Sure I *wish* the lowest/closest seats were allocated to 10C and not Platinum, but the idea that 10C members deserve those seats without a doubt…lol. Maybe Eddie should also come give us all foot massages during Mike’s solos as proper thanks for standing through so many shows over the years 😂

    I say this a 10C member with a mediocre number who got P2 seats for N2 through the drawing.

    How much pull does the Ten Club have with being able to demand only the best seats and sections with the venues in question?  To me it seems like the main perk of the 10C is the fact they have the lotteries and we as fans have more opourtunities to get tickets to shows (in general) as opposed to only relying on TM onsale dates

    That said, if a person is so turned off by being in the 3rd section to the point of not wanting to see PJ anymore in general, I am suprised they didn't just go for GA and P1 and ommited P2

    Thanks for sharing this. Beautiful song.  Surprised it wasn't mentioned in the setlist notes here that they played it for Bill Walton.  Was a big fan of his.  Sad to hear of his passing. Glad they mentioned something.

    Yah, if it was a high demand place like Seattle, I would of put in for all 3 knowing I could get a nosebleed, but my plan would of been to spend time upgrading to a better ticket.  

    I do miss the days when it was less hassle to get good tickets.  Put your name in, stand in line to pick up your tickets. You got what you got, but they were usually decent :)

    I think the sound is much improved overall for sure. Sounded great to me. The only thing I noticed was that most of the Dark Matter rockers (scared of fear, react respond, dark matter, running) were REALLY LOUD and seemed a little out of balance, like the guitar and bass were drowning out the vocals a little but I assume that must've been by design. Ed has mentioned in a few sound clips "play the new record really loud!" so maybe that's how they preferred it.

    It' was going to be hard for this show to be anything but a letdown for me after having spent the previous five shows at or near the front of the pit and the three shows before that on the floor right behind the pit. For Seattle, I am in seats on the side of the stage, and it was just a much less intense and immersive experience. There really was no way it couldn't have been. I did think that the sound was very good. During Deep Sea Diver's set, I was hearing the vocals with crystal clarity, and hearing keyboard accents and riffs that I did not hear on the floor at previous shows.

    One show left, and my biggest question is whether they can get to 100 unique songs across the ten proper shows in this leg. They're at 94 if you count "Little Wing" as a tag, 95 if you count it as a distinct song. (And 96 if you count Napa and add "Last Kiss" into the mix.) I'm hoping for at least six tour debuts tomorrow night so that they get to 100 no matter how you slice it. Still on the table, among others:

    "Animal"
    "Dissident"
    "Blood"
    "Indifference"
    "Glorified G"
    "Whipping"
    "Who You Are"
    "Habit" (ed. note: I'd rather they stop at 99)
    "Around the Bend"
    "Can't Keep"
    "Brain of J."

    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    A lot of the sound would probably be related the shape of the venue wouldn't it? (as most bands tend to bring their own sound equipment on tour).    I haven't been in climate pledge yet.  Does it look very different on the inside from Key Arena?  Same shape, would result in similar sound?

    30 year 10C member. Band played great, new songs, old songs and covers were great… and I was so disappointed by the experience I may never see another PJ show. I’m really done with 10C Priority Ticketing that got me seats 3rd level, back of the arena. I can get tickets that bad on my own without the “benefit” of being in the 10C.  Not what I call a 10C fan experience.

    Right! Thank you for pointing that out; I remember noticing that too now.

    I agree with you.  However, 30 year ten club members should have some of the best P2 seats?!?  Unless there was a mistake or the membership lapsed at some point?

    Either the 30 year member part is not true or there was a mess up.  I’m 26 year member and my P2 seats were section 102 for both nights.  They were uppers but they were the best uppers.  Plus I was able to upgrade both nights and those sets of 102s sold within 5 min each.

    Edit: misread the post. Sorry.

    I will say this about show seating. I had P1 seats, near 30 year membership, so good side seats in Cove 4 near pit. Most/many members of my section were on their rears most of the night, which is disappointing compared to the past being in sections filled with TC fans. Less of a communal vibe last night in my section. Other areas were bouncing tho. Hope Sec 12 brings it tomorrow!

    Just Breathe dropped it to a 7/10 show? That seems a bit extreme.

    Seems pretty light on the fanviews for a home show in this thread so far  and mostly comments about someone getting bad seats.  Hoping others will post.  How was the vibe? Band giving it a little extra or normal?

    Definitely a party vibe from the band. Eddie poured wine from above his head all over his face, and I recall all over a dude at the rail (?). Would make a good meme if anyone caught it. As usual, Mike was on fire, but I thought his solos had something extra.

    I was not complaining about the tickets or the seats, just explaining in my "fanview" why the experience was bound to suffer compared to the immersion of being at or near the front of the pit. I was happy to have the tickets I had, and I never made any attempt to improve upon them.

    On the subject of the loudness of the sound, the woman next to me was really enjoying the show, but she kept putting her fingers in her ears because it was too loud for her. I offered her my earplugs, which she graciously accepted. The only problem is that it was too loud to tell her that I had used those earplugs during the opener. I do clean my ears every day...
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    102 is not upper. It's mid. The poster was talking about the 200s. That's the P2 block. As others have pointed out, seniority did not give you P1 over P2. If you selected all three levels of tickets and were not selected in the lottery for GA or P1, you remained in the lottery for P2. If the member joined the Ten Club in 1994, they would have then been allocated some of the best seats *in the P2 block* but not better than people with worse numbers who were chosen in the P1 lottery draw.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.
