Where are you standing, Tracy? I'm about 4 rows back, in front of Mark's spot.

Sigh.... another day, another static-like setlist. I wonder why Watch Over You has been out of the set, recently?

Myles has had a cold from what I understand. Hard song to sing when you're sick.

I'm assuming you mean Fortress in the encore and not Find The Real? :lol

Great show!!

The place had a great energy. Maybe not as much as Orlando last year, but certainly more than most US shows. You can always tell when Myles feels welcome and humbled by the reception they're getting.

Myles sounded a lot better than in Baltimore. Couldn't even tell he had been sick.

As Cameron posted, they added back FTR and BTC. Still no Fortress, but I wasn't really expecting to hear it. CoA was fantastic.

I got there at about 1pm but still ended up about four rows back due to all the VIPs getting in first. Kind of a shame because I noticed a lot of those first few rows just stood there. (With the exception of Donnie and Anabela, who were rockin'. I couldn't see Tracy and Renee but I assume they were as well.) A few rows back, however, people were really into it!

Met some cool people in line too, including Peter, and a bunch of others who I don't think are on the boards (but I hope to see them around). And of course it's always a treat to catch up with Zaz.

It's actually a sick encore song. It's so dynamic, and the ending gets everyone riled up for RT.

I'd just rather see something new in the encore is all. I like the song fine.

Well as long as you guys had fun, I don't see any problems with it, seems like a pretty standard set.

Man they were great. They sounded even better than they did back in 2011, but the crowd was a little disappointing.

The set was kind of same ol same ol, but if they were to make a greatest hits record now, it'd probably have all the songs played last night. So it was good in that it was a crowd favorite kind of list.

The crowd did seem a little calm, but I was sitting nj the back and couldn't see the floor so idk how hard try were rocking.

Hahaha. My shoulders were killing me by the end of the show, probably from a) throwing up the horns so much, and b) doing the perpetual shrug in order to retain warmth while waiting 6 hours in the cold before the show. Legs and feet were dead too. Worth it!!

I stuck around until about 1:30 and got to meet the entire band as they exited the venue. It was like the AB family exodus! Mark came out with one of his kids sleeping on his shoulder, and the other holding his hand from behind, and his wife followed shortly after. I was glad to see that people didn't pounce on him right away, knowing that he was trying to get his kids to bed. He goes, "I'll be right back!" and surely enough, he came back out to shake everyone's hand and take photos. Brian came out carrying his baby as well, and handed him off to Mel to greet all the fans. A bit later, Flip came out with his wife and daughter, and Myles also emerged with his wife. I was lucky to get photos with Brian and Mark, but Flip and Myles were being rushed by the tour manager, so I figured I'd let some of the first-timers get their photos since I already have plenty with the band.

All-in-all I'm glad I stuck around. Got to catch up some more with old AB buddies as well as some folks I hadn't met before, including some fans from Ukraine and Russia!

I'm already itching for the next US tour... :headbang
