Why he bothered to put on one of these classic, intimate shows for that city is beyond me. Lesson learned I guess for Ed. Way to go cheeseheads.

as you'd suspected would be the case??? plese explain.
The guy dragged out was from Chicago from what I hear.
Just like a-hole Cub fans take over Miller Park because Brewer fans are gready and sell their souls (tickets) to them I "suspect" Chicago fans came to the Riverside and ruined it for us.

First of all, random fans dont travel too far to see a show. So unless he was a ten clubber, he was from wisconsin. And I doubt that ten clubbers would do that.
Besides, half of wisconsin likes the Cubs for some reason anyway. I dont get it......
The guy that was dragged out was absolutely a 10c member. He was 4 rows directly in front of me. He screamed, "Fuck you, I'm a 10c Member" as he was being dragged up the aisle.
And someone yelled "Freebird!"
Really. They really did.
They should have been sniped on sight.
I just want to say that I was also thoroughly embarrassed for the good name of Wisconsin at that show. I felt horrible.
The first wave of yells and "requests" is something that Ed probably understands fully. But when he has to tell you at least 3 or 4 times to "shut the fuck up" - and you can't respect that...well, you're giving the whole crowd a bad name.
I am so thankful that Ed didn't decide to just say "fuck this" and bail early. I think he knew there were just a few bad apples (although seemingly more than he's used to)
He WAS impressed by our singing on Elderly Woman!
I'm sorry for all of the fans that couldn't respect you, Ed! Please come back to Wisconsin again....maybe Alpine Valley!!!!!
Great show, but at one point security had to drag a 400 pd guy from 5th row out at which point eddie fell over and laid on the ground for about a minute. Then a guy sitting (next to us) in Left front center row K seat 1 (95% SURE ON SEAT # WILL VERIFY)(marked so the fan club can cancel his membership, and ship him a deads pigs head) got up yelled u suck and left. (After soon forget????WTF)
Ed saw through, but I was embarrassed, I could tell he was not impressed with "old milwaukee". When done with Hard Sun (which he made sure rocked) the way he said good bye I could tell he wanted to go.
anyway had to get that seat number out before bed, a waste of a seat when so many fans had to sit behind him. Some fans joked after the show ed will not be back soon.. Lets go Chicago.....
Besides the negative I can't wait for Chicago, It was a great show... opening w/ sometimes kicked but, enjoyed Liam as well. Arc, millworker, other

where are the cubs going? i know where they usually go.........and it ain't the World Series.
See you in the NLCS.
I'm in 10 club! Fuck you! I'm in 10 club!
still.... what did he do? I'm not dogging this guy til I know. Did venue security get a little outta line, which is very possible, or is the guy just a knucklehead.
hmmm, you seem to be unfamiliar with the phrase, "go _____."
it's actually a phrase of encouragement, not location or destination. just like I will be saying "go Bears" in December when we are 2-10.
and I will not argue that the cubs traditionally bite the big one, but I am pretty sure that we will not eb seeing YOU in the NLCS.
How about this, did anyone here some guy yell "Where is your wife" just seconds before Arc?
Forget Alpine Valley come up to The Big Top in Northern Wisconsin. We'll give you all the respect you need! or (The Deck MN) We have Northwoods "Hippie Class" up here and thrive on acoustical music.
As a Chicagoan, I am 99% sure that the bastards yelling were FIBS. These are a bunch of frat boy types from the Chicago suburbs.
I just hope this doesn't effect 2009 Alpine.
Also, I grew up in the midwest and now I've lived on both coasts - and this geographical bicker snicker is the dumbest thing on the board. (Strong statement I know!) Every town has both jackasses and rockstars. It's the beauty of the world.
By responding to her, didn't you just "bother with her cockiness?"
While in line for the bathroom at the coffee shop next door after the show (we legitimized its use by purchasing a bottle of water and a black and white cookie) some girls were talking who said they were in the row right behind them. I hope I'm not spreading bad information, but they said "about 4 or 5 people got up to complain about the guy". So that could be why he was removed.
Was the 2009 Alpine stuff for real anyway?
And I'd also like to say to the Wisconsin crowd blaming the Illinois people...
Just as you're trying to deflect blame and say don't let a few individuals ruin the reputation of all of you, please also don't let a few idiotic Illinoisans characterize your view of all of us. I was among a handful of people that were good soldiers last night from Illinois, and I was wearing a Cubs hat to boot. We're not all evil. And that goes for the obnoxious Cubs fans at Miller Park, too. A lot of us are just there to enjoy the game as well, support our team, and not take the opportunity to insult you guys. The louder the jerk, the more noticeable they're going to be. A quieter more respectful person is less likely to stick out in a crowd.
And I think that the half the state of Wisconsin as Cubs fans that someone else said may be a carryover from the Brewers AL days.
