There was a frantic search by the stage by people with torches for what I imagine someone has dropped...

That sounds promising, looking forward to YT clips! Maybe time for Vision Thing tonight then.

As far as covers go I'd much rather hear Stayin' Alive than anything by Pearl Jam.

More is great. For me tonight is the best night, not too packed, everyone can get close and involved, band is having fun including Von however wayward, and I even enjoyed the support.

Temple of Love. All enjoy it. Even me.

Ta @ruffers again, can't wait for the Pearl Jam song flac :lol:, though would have thought hair metal covers rather than pastiches more likely in this incarnation.

Very chatty tonight, obviously all in German tho...
Really enjoyed Ben this weekend, he has simplified all the solos and been on really good form.

Definitely best of the three. It was a lot louder too, a few others I spoke to after said the very same: you could actually feel the bass tonight.
If I told them once, I told them a hundred times to put 'Spinal Tap' first and 'Puppet Show' last.

I’m thinking about reality and expectations and how huge the gulf often is.

I bought tickets the day these went on sale, never thinking it could actually happen, but indulging the possibility was entertaining enough to justify the purchase!
I’m crazy lucky to have the career I do, but I’m under a lot of pressure and my teen boys have barely been able to leave the house, CA has political crap looming, I just finished a grueling creative project, and I figured I could come here to relax and recharge.

High expectations, but the last three days, and this show in particular, were one of those times when reality is better than expeditions.

Ok, also, I may have allegedly taken a huge dose of medicine from California just before the gig, but that doesn’t change how fantastic the show tonight was.

You’ll get the set lists elsewhere, so I’ll be a little more free form.

The lights were reflecting in the mirrors in a way that made geometric shapes inside of other shapes and that was cool. The mirrors struck me as a (better) alternative those looped videos you see at some concerts, and they add dimensions. Show me on the doll.

By that song, I had pretty well worked out the mysteries of the universe and all was love and joy. So, you know, about where my expectations for the night had been. ;)

Really, really cool visuals with the black and white strobe effects creating a dramatic background.

Flood was f**king epic. We got to stand up to love America twice, with Dominion (which was great) and with VT, which showed up at the perfect time.

The sound was fantastic. Vocals were strong. There was German banter, which added to the feeling of a multi-faceted celebration of something cool.

Seriously, though, how often do you look forward to something and then it’s all you hoped? I mean, do you have to stop complaining? The only complaint I have right now, aside from having to say goodbye, is that this tour can only happen once.

I agree. They were on fire.
I felt like a teenager when I got photos taken with Ben and Dylan ( thank you Ruffers!!!)
But when Andrew posed for rock star photos offstage, looked right at me and posed some more for my video.....starstruck fan moment :D :lol: :von:
I burst into tears when I got back to my hotel

It was lovely to meet some of you over the weekend

And just like last year....massive massive thanks to Ruffers for his company all 3 nights
