This was a very frustrating night. First my buddy gets detained at US customs & gets denied entry. Later I found out he had to go through interrogation, a gun being pulled on him & a full cavity search. I was allowed entry & felt bad to leave him behind, but I was told he was just gonna be allowed to take a bus ride back. I wasn't told he would be there for hours before the bus ride. Managed to get to my seats (yeah I had 2 now) minutes before the show started. Luckily it started slightly later than the 7:30 sharp stated time.

There are a few annoynces during the concert. First off I don't mind people around me having a great time, cheer your ass off, you're there for a good time. There are however a few times I felt like leaving & not becasue of the performance. I had a few guys in front of me that were quite chatty Cathy's during the first set. Not the biggest deal, but can't the casual stuff wait until after the show? I had a guy behind me that was quite irrate with the video/lyrics from Fletcher Memorial through Leaving Beiruit. Not trying to make any statements political wise, but if you didn't know Roger's views long long long ago, & can't deal with it, what the hell. Ironically he quieted down once Sheep started. The most annoying thing though was the hollow step right by my seating. Loud clunks can be heard during some of the quieter parts. The absolute funniest thing has to be the usher who came up behind me to tell the person in front of me he couldn't smoke a cigarette. With all the stuff burning, a guy gets nabbed for a butt?!? Lastly a drunk came up and snatched my buddy's empty seat & loosely threatened me before moving on. Just a typical concert I guess.
