Wow that was a great show!! I am so HAPPY that I decided to go!
I went down with my BF and one of my bestfriends Catherine, and her Husband John. Couldn't have picked better people to go with!
We too had quite a few beers out in the parking lot before going in, as well as a little smoke!
We walked into the stage being empty. We then probably where board out of our mind watching "our lady piece of sh.t" as John likes to call them.
I thought his comment about George Bush was a bit much and also annoying!
There was so many people in our area "hipping" our lady peace!
I don't know if anyone else there heard that in the areas you where? Probably not many people where doing it? I would also just like to mention that I HATE general admin. There was so many people walking in front of us every two seconds! I was also getting pissed off that these morons just think they can come by me and basically push me out of there way! JERKS
This is way I love seating shows!
So now onto the best part the hip. I was so looking forward to seeing them. I figure we all might be lucky enough with a tour next Summer, but way to long for me to wait!
We where standing to the left of the stage, we had a pretty good view. I noticed that a lot of Our lady peace fans left, because we had so much more room, and not nearly as many people coming and going!
I was also very surprised with the opener! What a nice treat!
I was pleased also like a lot of you, that they didn't just play the hits! I really felt like they where there playing for the "true" fans.!
Gord was entertaining as he usually is, I thought his voice was a little different, but it was probably just because I have not heard the hip outside in quite a while! I just knew to that he would be wearing the green shirt! I am so surprised that it hasn't fallen apart yet! Hasn't he had it since 98?
It was great to hear the two new songs, and I knew as soon as they began that, oh great this is a new one! I was completely mesmerized by Ballroom. Doesn't Neil Young have a song called Ballroom?
But anyway like Hugh I was really trying to hear the words! I heard something about "stop thinking about who's kissing her"..did anyone else?
I can't wait for the new album and also to figure out those lyrics for both songs!!
It was such a fabulous night! I had such fun listing to hundredth meridian! What a great song! I love how the music stops and the Gord is just going off. When that music kicks in again it is such a great feeling of joy!
Anyway I can't say enough!! I was so happy that I went!!
It was such a great night!!! I wish I could have meet some of you fellow hipbasers! I'm glad you all had a great time!
