By far the best show I've ever seen!!! I was front and center pressed against the rail and couldn't have had a better time. Gord Downie's rants added to the energy of an already lively show. At one point in IOD Gord looked to me and said "It's just the Inevitability of it all!" then turned looked at my brother said it again and asked my brother over the microphone "Did I already say that?" my brother screamed "YES!" to which Gord replied "Yeah I thought so!!" and then they rocked back into it. Amazing. Great setlist great crowd. Gord even gave a score update on the Red Sox/Yankee game before the first encore! What more can be said than ROCKING!!!

Sounds like the boys are on Fire after coming back from the left coast.
Rochester rocked and it sounds like Burlington did also.

No Voice...big hangover...ears ringing...it's noon and I just got out of bed. The best show in memory. Highlights were IOD, Makeshift, and Something on. Even NOIS seemed to have more ferver in it that last month. From the back of the balcony the lighting was awesome, sound was terrific and the crowd seemed really into it. Went to Ri Ra's to watch the sox bring it to the yankees. It was priceless!

Maybe Fran and Bob are bus drivers. I know when I drove bus driving seven hours was nothing for me. Now, after living in a big city I HATE TO DRIVE!

Sounds like a great show! I hope they are as on tonight as they were last night!

Yeah, we get tired! But...it's worth it!! A long haul from Rochester to Burlington but not as bad as having to drive (I slept...sort of...while Bob did the actual driving!) after the show last night to Manchester, NH then to work in Portland, ME for 8 this morning. Draggin ass bad...

That was the last show on the tour for us...unless they happen to do Europe and we may try to go. Doesn't look like we are going to get to any of the Canadian shows.

Can anyone get us in to the Ottawa show this weekend??????????????
