    Woo, I had a good setlist last night.
    In Chains
    Wrong
    Hole To Feed
    Walking In My Shoes
    It's No Good
    A Question Of Time
    Precious
    Fly On The Windscreen
    Little Soul
    Home
    Miles Away
    Policy Of Truth
    In Your Room
    I Feel You
    Enjoy The Silence
    Never Let Me Down Again

    Encore #1
    Somebody
    Stripped
    Behind The Wheel

    Encore #2
    Personal Jesus
    Waiting For The Night (Bare Version)

    I really wish I had gotten Strangelove instead of BTW; the Stripped and BTW one-two punch was too gloomy. But other than that, it was a great night. Dave was sipping honey so hopefully he's taking care of his voice. Bummed this is probably it for another few years, unless they come back through in the early spring like they did a few years ago.

    The Pearl was an amazing show on Saturday night. Hung out at the box office until someone walked up and asked where their "VIP" tickets were. I asked if he had an extra. He said "kind of" and asked why I didn't buy one myself. I pointed to the "SOLD OUT" sign and he said he's let me have his for $150 because it was charged to his room without him knowing (not sure how that happens, but whatever). Walked to the concierge with him and he hands me the ticket. Ended up in Row B of section 304 (PERFECT VIEW!). The lady next to me even bought me a drink, i felt like a such a playa, lol.

    OHH, you don't have your ticket yet. I was wondering why you texted me "wish me luck" when you said you were going.

    edit: and good luck btw

    My friend and I really fucked up. The original plan was to drive up to Tampa to see them because that venue was having the livenation specials. We were going to do the $10 lawn seats but missed out on it, luckily I had a Plan B. That same show was also having those Subway specials, for about $6 more we would have upgraded from lawn to an actual seat. Once again we waited too long and now those tickets are sold out. The venue they're playing at here isnt Livenation so no specials applied.

    Even though I really shouldnt and just save up my money, I simply just have to see them again. So Plan C now finds me on craigslist looking for a decent deal. I found a really good ticket for $75 but it's just one and I can't leave my friend in the dust. I think as we get closer to the show better deals will pop up. It's all moot until I get paid on Friday anyway but im not giving up. Even if it involves me going to the venue the day of and asking around.

    Martin and I have unfinished business

    Contact a ticket broker and see if they are letting any of their tickets go for cheaper than they are advertising; I've found that they will negotiate if tickets aren't selling like they thought. I was trying to trade my section C seats for section A, and a broker told me they wouldn't trade but that they would sell me the seats at face value.

    I'm going to admit it...

    PART of me wishes I wasnt rolling so hard so I could have focused on them more. But it was still one of the greatest shows I have ever experienced. And I definitely won't roll if/when I see them next week

    I regret rolling for massive attack/dungen/art brut in Coachella 06. You don't want to roll if you want to remember.

    Pearl topped Hollywood Bowl for me simply because I didn't have walk up a friggin hill to get to my seat, lol. I had seen another show at the Pearl a few years back and remember thinking to myself "this place is HUGE", but compared to the Hollywood Bowl the place was SO intimate. I'm glad I didn't give up on getting a ticket.

    he didn't seem like the concert going type. I think he bought the ticket for his 20-something boy-toy (very easy on the eyes when he came to sit next to me about the 5th song in...)

    besides, I thought scalpers held up signs that said "I need a ticket" at least that's what I see everytime i'm at a sold out Fonda or El Rey show and I see the same 2 white guys (old man with white hair and creepy leather jacket guy) and pack of crackhead looking black dudes. FYI, that's not racist if you actually know black crackheads...

    I will eventually, but it's not something I need right now as most shows I go to I'm shooting with my DSLR anyways.

    wowowowowowowowowow!

    Try to take pictures!!!! How does one get an upgrade like that?

    I cant stop thinking about this show, its my phone and computer wall paper. I see them wherever I go! Each day that passes I just get more and more of a "Fuck it!!" attitude and will pay any price to get a decent spot into their show next week. NOTHING WILL STOP ME!

    Absolutely, no arguing there. Yet I can remember the Lolla set pretty well all things considered. The problem is WHAT I remember, its all just a bunch of dancing and singing and air guitaring and one unfortunate incident where a crowd member vomited. Or sometimes I was just so captivated by the images. I definitely remember Martin singing "Home". I didnt blink, I didnt look around, I didnt move, my focus was 100% on him.

    I also have a new found appreciation for "Policy of Truth". I cant listen to that song now without seeing those damn bouncing balls!
