The festival shows broadcast online ALL HAD the full production. The one show which didnt allow production (Reading) TR went into a hissy fit and didnt want streamed and Rob was all over twitter making excuses on why they didnt want it streamed

In the end, the Reading Festival crew still filmed it with their cameras and we got it so it doesn't matter. I expect a similar situation from Rock am Ring, but if not then whatever.

You're the LAST person who should be accusing others of throwing a hissy fit.

Trent has been more than gracious in allowing the fans to archive webcasts and other streams. If he decided he didn't want a show broadcast, then so be it. It's his band, and if he feels that the broadcast won't represent the band in a way that is comfortable with, then he has every right to not allow it to be streamed. Calling him an asshole for not letting one or two shows be streamed is the real hissy fit here.

EDIT: Also, the Reading show was probably better off not being streamed. It was like they dropped the band into a giant bong. :p

Perhaps I've been too spoiled by past tours.



Probably yes, as is the case with a lot of fans on the northern hemisphere. But I agree about the "soulessness", though when I saw the band he was even less chatty, and the crowd wasn't spoiled at all. So he's still more chatty and lively onstage with his more spoiled audience.

Too much attention is paid to setlists. I'd take a boring setlist and a smashing performance any day. I was looking back at meadowbank '07 and the setlist is awesome but I didn't think the performance was all that, at the time.

Edit: I'd Like to have written the corollary, but I've found something to enjoy in every setlist I've seen.

General NIN live question: is it worth seeing more than one show in a tour? I saw one date on Tension, and have the opportunity to see both Florida dates back to back, and am definitely considering it but before I spend the money on tickets for another show I'd like to know if it's generally considered worth seeing them more than once, back to back, etc. I know some fans do this and have excellent experiences, but I've also seen some people saying they've ended up disappointed, etc.

I'd definitely consider it, if I were you. I would have gone to more than one show (Vienna), but the timing was bad. Especially back to back you'll see a few different songs (unless Trent decides to play the rare stuff for his beloved north america, then you'd see a completely different setlist). But also, maybe the sound or your seats are shitty at one show, then you still have the second one to enjoy more. Go for it. Who knows when he's touring again (probably soon, but whatever).

I'd say yes as TR always does try to change the setlist a certain amount especially if shows are back to back in a certain place. It certainly worked for me in the UK to go to 3 shows in a week. I don't regret any of them and would wish that I could have added the Nottingham show as all time low / somewhat damaged were played. The only thing is if the production is like the festival shows last year the setlists might be more predictable than they have been??

I think it's worthwhile to see multiple shows on a tour, but I enjoy seeing a tour evolve over a span of dates and having varied experiences against the barrier or in front of the soundboard. Honestly, it all depends on what you're looking to get from their performances.

Considering the upcoming leg is a co-headliner on the shed circuit, it's unlikely the two Florida dates will be that drastically different. Rumor has it that NIN will have some heavier production elements akin to the Festival leg of 2013, so it's likely the setlist will be static (I doubt the sets from Death Grips/SG will vary that much either).

You won't be up close on a barricade since there's reserved seating (unless you plan to buy the Platinum Seats), so the crowd experience could go either either way depending on your section.

That said, we won't know much of anything until we get a few shows in and begin to see what they've got planned. If you can afford it, do it because regretting it after the fact just sucks. Plus, there's a finite number of chances to catch NIN live as I don't see them going on like the Rolling Stones.

Worse case, you'll be able to critique the two shows and catch some nuance you missed the previous night.

Jordan
06-06-2014, 11:53 PM
is it worth seeing more than one show in a tour?

I'll let Trent answer your question - Those who plan on attending more than one date of the North America tour will be in for a different concert each night, according to Reznor. “This incarnation of the band could play some 50 different potential songs,” he explained. “Every night we try to make it different. So one night might be a heavily electronic-based set, the next it might be all violently aggressive noisy rock.” http://audioinkradio.com/2014/05/trent-reznor-deliver-all-fronts-nine-inch-nails-shows/

I would plan on hearing about 8 songs played both nights. I personally bought tickets to both shows at the Red Rocks in CO. and can't bloody wait!!

Sarah K

I would for sure go to more than one date if possible. I caught two Tension shows about a week apart. And I'll be going two nights in a row this summer.

That's not true. Also, we never really got the chance to fap wildly. What are North Americans fapping to? Incredible stage productions like Lights In The Sky or Tension? 26+ song setlists? An 8 piece band? Approx. 5 US tour legs per touring cycle?

What are we gonna fap to? Some fancy swinging lights?

^I'm (half) joking :D

Still, if Trent wanted to be as well known in Europe as he is in North America, he'd need go a little bigger here for the casual music fan and concert goer. It doesn't bother me, I'm just saying that 97,4% of all Europeans have no idea how elaborate a NIN show can be. Then again, even the Outside tour with Bowie wasn't the biggest success, even though it probably was one of the most epic live moments in the 90s.

I was there and I have the bruises to prove it ;)

Just because we don't fap wildly here doesn't mean we don't get enthusiastic. But NIN are FAR bigger deal in the USA than here. Thats why they don't headline mainstages at our festivals. That's why sometimes they're not even on the mainstage at our festivals.

Thanks to everyone for the input, I'm just going to pull the trigger and go to both FL dates; even if it's a more static show, I think I wouldn't mind in the least, because usually static NIN = visual NIN, and the visuals for Tension were so incredible that there were so many things I didn't see at my show since I was looking at a different part of the stage that I then saw later on on YT. If there's really diverse setlists, then hey, all the more reason. I figure, I've only seen NIN once, if I can make it 3, why the hell not?

Also these fake setlists are killing me. In Two making a come back is the best thing I could imagine from HM, it was the one song I really deeply wanted to see live from HM that didn't get played at my Tension date (all the more reason to see more than one show, I suppose).

And as we all know, fifty years from now, people will look back at NIN's career, and laugh and ignore all of their accomplishments and all of the pro-internet pro-streaming pro-download moves Trent Reznor made and call him a fool for not allowing his Rock Am Ring performance to be televised.

I don't see how bigger shows would help if it's just the same people going and talking about it who have always gone. I still think Trent missed a trick not releasing Satellite as the second single rather than Everything. With a good video I think that might have drawn new people in to the dancier side of NIN which has always been there but for some reason they have just been typecast as a rock / metal band for all these years in Europe so people just write them off without giving them a listen

You seem to be missing the point, Billy Boy. No one is saying they wouldn't like to see the footage. I think we all would like to see it, but most of us (read: everyone that isn't you) simply shrugged our shoulders and say "Oh well." when we found out we wouldn't be able to see it. You, on the other hand, throw a fit like the big-headed baby you are and insist that Trent is doing this because he's an asshole who hates his fans. He also hates you especially and purposefully tries to break your heart with everything he does. Your obsession with tearing him down is kind of sick to be honest.

lol you take it way too seriously....Its the last chance to see a pro shot from this tour until god knows when (maybe 4 or 5 years, maybe never) and it would have been nice to have seen the show, especially considering every other band that played the festival gave permission for their shows to be aired. TR decided he wont allow it. Its a dick move. The end. Im not going to go slit my wrists because ol Trent and his boyfriend Rob dont want their shows streamed without the precious light show.

It's weird though, because there are two South American live streams from this year, and there's little to no production. Must have a reason, maybe has to do with the upcoming live release or his general hatred for Germany/Europe.

I do, however, think that bigger shows (as unrealistic and expensive that would be) would have an effect. Just look at Rammstein, Germany's biggest band. They're known for their huge stage production, you just have to have seen a Rammstein show. If I ask anyone from North America, they'd probably say the same about NIN, but not here.

Would I rather see a Tension show than the European Festival show I saw in 2013 and the upcoming show in Vienna? Probably not (except for the ridiculously amazinh encores Tension had). Would media be all over it, rather than just posting a regular live review? Probably yes.

It's weird though, because there are two South American live streams from this year, and there's little to no production. Must have a reason, maybe has to do with the upcoming live release or his general hatred for Germany/Europe.

Oh, come on! ( . . There must be a reason, maybe has to do with the 12 kittens Trent sacrificed on stage that day. Maybe. :rolleyes:)


I do, however, think that bigger shows (as unrealistic and expensive that would be) would have an effect. Just look at Rammstein, Germany's biggest band. They're known for their huge stage production, you just have to have seen a Rammstein show. If I ask anyone from North America, they'd probably say the same about NIN, but not here.

I could see how having a big production could make some difference, but I don't really see how having an impressive arena show would attract a large group of people to see a festival show without that production. I mean, it's possible, but it wouldn't exactly be something to shoot for.

First time I've seen that, I was at the earlier Leeds show. How interesting. Well I completely doubt that's the case with this round of shows, Primavera show was preferable to the big production, and lights were still great!

This is bill's summary from that thread:

"Trent told me to go fuck myself on that forum after Apple rejected the NIN iphone app and he was ranting all over the forums about it.......It was beautiful"

Well if that's the case who really knows why the stream didn't happen. Here's the latest IG photo and looks like full Euro/UK production, I haven't been keeping up with all the recent shows but I'd assume both 'Ring festivals got the same treatment...

How many times this year has TR mangled the lyrics to TGD? I know it started in Tokyo, but I just heard the Zurich recording and he completely tripped over nodding your head and watching with those shiny satellites.

Looking at the IG, it seems the Rock im Park cameras were active during NIN's set. Perhaps a recording might sneak out on the bootleg circuit.

his general hatred for Germany/Europe.

He does not hate the 800 million people in Europe or hate Germany (which is probably the coolest country in the world in 2014) and has not brutally condemned our culture, Georgraphy, way of life or civilization, (only our food and bipolar weather) stop being over dramatic. his team have found it hard to judge NINs size here, which fluctuates yearly. Its grueling touring Europe definitely especially if its for two months like the 2007 tour. And then you have to play all those awful heavy metal festivals which stink of shit and piss and the food gives you cancer, and where only 10 percent of the people want to see NIN.
I think his European experiences would have been better had he been able to have a better communication with the continent, in the UK over the past 25 years it has been easier than say France or Germany or Italy or Russia but then booking 6 Arenas in the UK for NIN to play was absurd, when most of them were around 50 percent capacity. Something is not right. Its always been a weird situation with NIN, they have a cult following here are big in the U.S across the pond but with terrible record labels, shady managers, long absences from the industry, general bad communication with whats going on here its hard to judge what to do.

Plus, pretty much the majority of Trent's musical influences seem to be British, Bowie, Queen, Joy Division, Numan, lots of the synth pop stuff, Throbbing Gristle, the Cure, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd etc etc. I know this is nothing to do with success over here, but suggests lack of hatred for Europe?

They seemed to really randomly go down a storm at the RocknHeim German festival last year, like everyone just seemed up for it. Reading 2007 seemed a pretty successful billing, personally I don't see why they didn't headline then over Smashing Pumpkins

simonn

I'd definitely consider it, if I were you. I would have gone to more than one show (Vienna), but the timing was bad. Especially back to back you'll see a few different songs (unless Trent decides to play the rare stuff for his beloved north america, then you'd see a completely different setlist). But also, maybe the sound or your seats are shitty at one show, then you still have the second one to enjoy more. Go for it. Who knows when he's touring again (probably soon, but whatever).

I saw London and Nottingham back to back, and it was definitely worth it. For a start I did standing one night seats the other, so got to see the show from very different perspectives. Plus, he changed 8 songs between the two nights. Would certainly do again.

Minor nitpick, Talking Heads aren't British.

TBH I think the large amount of influence from UK musicians is less to do with Trent's particular taste and more to do with how pervasive UK music is across the board, and has been since the Beatles.

tl,dr. Stop taking everything so seriously and get the stick out of your ass. It's a running gag in the NIN community that Europe can lick Trent's Kugelsack. You know I'm not complaining about anything, right?

unfortunately, another running gag in the NIN community is making wild claims based on random things trent says and then taking those claims as truth. so it was a little hard to tell which "gag" you were going for. ;)

I think I liked the idea of the NIN|JA 4 piece more than this one, mostly because I love the live drums that a NIN show brings to the songs. If Ilan was just drumming, I'd feel better about it. But I've also not experienced this 4 piece live, so that may change in a little over a month.

Has anyone considered that the lack of streaming might mean they're bringing the visuals from this leg to NIN+SG and don't want to spoil it for everyone?

Trent has cited the festival live streams as one reason they're changing things up for each leg — maybe he likes this production enough to keep it going. And they didn't release any of the Tension footage until the tour was over.

Just a thought.

It's possible but the consensus based on a previous interview is that something similar to the Festival 2013 will be what they are going with for the NIN/SG shows. Perhaps it will be a hybrid of the two.

My sense was that TR was talking more about resurrecting the mechanics of the 2013 festivals — the bare stage, maybe the portable screen panels — which doesn't necessarily mean junking all of the current screen visuals and lighting. With all the cool things they've done since then, a total reversion to last summer's production would be … disappointing.

My alternate theory: they want to include some of the European production in the Tension video. (Assuming footage was shot but not streamed.)

At any rate, I thought these sounded more Trent-ish than Bill's conspiracy theory.

I would be thoroughly pleased with the European setup, I think it looked incredible in every video and photo I've seen. That said I'm open to anything and if we get some weird lovechild of this, Tension and the 2013 festival show design, I'm down for it. After seeing Tension I really have faith in whatever they want to do.

Right — if they're doing any kind of production at all, it's safe to say they'll make sure it blows our minds.

I dunno. The Tension live video (the (not-quite) full one) on YouTube has almost a million views. The most-watched non-pro-shot NIN concert video from the last year has way less. And, even as a regular ETSer, I've only watched footage from a couple songs from this tour leg. But I would have, without a doubt, watched an official stream of a concert.

Sorry. I thought you were alluding to bootleg videos (made by people attending the concerts) when you said "the function of the Internet". Maybe not though?

Anyway, I don't think those bootleg videos spoil the visuals for as many people as a pro-shot video. (Should have also pointed out that YouTube has captures of streams that are way more popular than anything recorded by fans, too.)

Clearly NIN fans do not care about production, which is exactly why there are entire threads devoted to discussing and theorizing the upcoming production, exactly why there are tons of fan DVDs and edits that compile stuff like Lights in the Sky with visuals in mind, exactly why people endlessly complimented the 2013 festival production and exactly why there were heated debates over whether Tension or LitS was better visually.

Like, really, I get that visuals aren't the only aspect of a performance, but they are wonderful and a fantastic bonus to a great show. I'll take whatever they offer really, it could be a single 80 watt lightbulb dangling above everyone (basically Performance 2007) and I'd be happy as long as the performance was great, but I would be lying if I said that the visuals I saw on Tension weren't mind-blowing and an incredible spectacle that boosted the show and enhanced how I experienced the songs. The visuals for Hurt honestly moved me to tears live, and I doubt the song on itself would have. The visuals for While I'm Still Here/Black Noise cemented that song as my absolute favorite from HM alongside the actual performance.

I mean I don't think the production is what makes the show, but it's a little ridiculous to act like no one in the fanbase has any interest in them and no one wants them.

Also I feel like a lot of people forget what made Woodstock so important; it was the first major televised NIN performance at an incredibly major event at the time and because of that it made them skyrocket in reputation and popularity. It was simply them being presented on a massive scale way beyond the Hate tour, after an EP where almost all of the music videos were banned in the first place; it was a major exposure. Yes it was an amazing performance, but it wasn't like the setlist to it was unique either; almost all of it was near-identical to the Self Destruct tour (which, by the way, had a largely static setlist anyway, it's not like that was NINJA/Wave Goodbye levels of diversity).

Oh and it's funny you should mention KISS since Trent has openly referred to them as an influence early on when it came to a stage show and even samples them on Starfuckers.

NIN isn't playing a show in 2014 for $40 (top tier tickets), doesn't matter how dumbed down the lighting would be.

Like it or not one of the reasons NIN is viewed as a great live band is the production- which started in late '94- which was the reason TR went to Woodstock in the first place, to fund the arena tour. (According to him anyways)

i do recall him not thinking Woodstock was that great while it was happening, don't remember him actually saying he "hated" the performance. I think he hated that he had to go to Woodstock. There was some stuff going wrong with the equipment, and WS was a big clusterfuck. Probably wasn't the funnest experience if you put all that together.

I don't remember where he said it, but I remember Trent saying he had a blast during the performance but when he went back and watched/listened again he thought it was really messy and not as good as he thought.
I don't think that he hated it so much as he was disappointed in it.

You need to compare apples to apples in this little poll you're putting together. Option #1- A full NIN production or Option #2 - The SAME set list with little to no production for slightly less money per ticket. I believe this is a silly question as the vast majority would choose the full production. Now, a small intimate venue with no production?? Thats what I want. But that's a different question altogether. And how many people would be pissed cause they couldn't get tickets to this small venue? We all want unique and rare setlists but the lights and screens are not to blame for the opposite. Trent plays what he wants and creates a production around the setlist, not the other way around. I also don't think it takes away from the music in any way to say that the NIN visual production kicks ass and is way fuckin cool and adds to the music as well as the experience and his fans love it and so on. Does it make a better show? Hell yes! Is it the only reason I go? Hell no! Would I go without a visual production? Hell yes! But LITS was like nothing I've ever see at a concert until Tension. Wow to both. And ACL with no visual production fuckin kicked ass too!

Every person I was able to bring to a NIN show, either casual fan or non-fan, bought his/her ticket because of the production that I used as a selling point.
I've seen hundreds of concerts in my life and by a mile, NIN is the easiest concert to sell to anyone who simply wants to witness a good show.

If you poll ETS, yes the $40 show with rare songs/no production would likely win. However, if you poll the thousands who attended each Tension shows, I believe the result would be different.

Personally I would prefer the $100 dollar show, static setlist and big production, because NO OTHER band can pull off what NIN did with LiTS. U2 can do something similar, but it looks gimmicky and tacky. I went to the Houston show of LiTS, had not seen ANY video or read any setlist prior going to the show (show was early on that tour so it helped me going "blind" to it) and OH MY GOD. I was ECSTATIC during The Warning/Vessel/Piggy/Ghosts section, then The Greater Good. That section for me redefined what a rock concert could be, an experience when the visuals and the musicals are blended together to form a single sensory layer. To be able to witness what technology could do in a live setting without knowing about it...just WOW. And then the encore, Echoplex, where the stage becomes a musical instrument, and the emotional ending with In This Twilight. Still the best NIN show I've seen (and I was lucky to see NIN in a club setting as well, Australia 07 FTW).

That may be true, may not be. However, that doesn't speak for or against a large visual production. Again, you're not comparing apples to apples. Not only were the setlists completely different but the Wave Goodbye tour was a different animal altogether. NIN can put on INCEDIBLE shows with or without huge visual productions, no one is arguing that. But I highly doubt there is anyone who wasn't blown away by LITS and felt they didn't get their moneys worth. I personally would pay double to see it or tension again. I'll bet there are FAR more people who feel the same as I do than those who don't.

I saw SG a few months back and they sounded great...I suspect Chris' voice may be a little hit or miss from time to time, but I have heard a number of other shows where he sounded really good. I actually think that if there is any knock against SG it is that they haven't adjusted their setlist due to age...Trent won't get up there and do WITT or some of his other harder vocal numbers (and when he does, he adjusts the songs and throws in a bunch of "Hey's" to take some of the screaming out)....Chris gets up there and does Beyond the Wheel @ age 50.

At any rate, I am an SG fan (albeit a much bigger NIN fan), so I am really looking forward to this tour.

I actually forgot about that for a second. Well, I guess if you take two bands like NIN and QOTSA, it works perfectly. I can't confirm or deny that I was a but jealous when that tour happened down there.

Got them both here last year too, in a way- I know Lolla for a fact. Can't recall what other festivals they teamed up at but Lolla was QOTSA right before NIN on same stage and same night.

I can understand anyone here who is a SG fan and looking forward to the show. I'm not the one to talk shit about any band, I myself am a fan of certain bands that get a lot of shit. BUT wouldn't any SG fan prefer a SG solo tour? When I said horrible I didn't (just) mean Chris' singing, but the whole show in general. It just doesn't fit. Were both bands big in the 90's? Yes. Should they tour together 20 years later? I'd say no.

But most likely it's just the fact that both NIN and SG would struggle to tell out bigger venues, even in the States...

Really? I thought Tension was a sellout?
And the tour does seen odd to me, NIN have done a lot recently, whereas it seems like a throwback tour in regards to SG.

Tension wasn't even close to a sell out in most places.

At the first show I went to, Groupon was selling tickets for like $25 the morning of the concert.

Yeah sucks NYC/NJ were the only close Tension shows to me since they did Made in America Philly. I waited until the day of and still had to pay $150 I believe for floor on stubhub. That was for NYC show though and I had a ride so I couldn't pass it up. I'm so F'N glad I manned up and bought that ticket that morning. I would have been so mad at myself if I missed Tension. I wish I could only see one more light show, but this time I'd be more prepared to experience it....:p

Question.... just "assuming" NIN takes a break after this leg of touring what do you think is more likely for a new tour? I think its safe to say they'll definitely play bare bones type shows but as far as "special" shows goes do you think they will do...

-Another light show big arena I'd guess this if a new album is coming out.

-Small club with band

-Trent doing a solo "still" tour in clubs.

Personally I would prefer the $100 dollar show, static setlist and big production, because NO OTHER band can pull off what NIN did with LiTS. U2 can do something similar, but it looks gimmicky and tacky. I went to the Houston show of LiTS, had not seen ANY video or read any setlist prior going to the show (show was early on that tour so it helped me going "blind" to it) and OH MY GOD. I was ECSTATIC during The Warning/Vessel/Piggy/Ghosts section, then The Greater Good. That section for me redefined what a rock concert could be, an experience when the visuals and the musicals are blended together to form a single sensory layer. To be able to witness what technology could do in a live setting without knowing about it...just WOW. And then the encore, Echoplex, where the stage becomes a musical instrument, and the emotional ending with In This Twilight. Still the best NIN show I've seen (and I was lucky to see NIN in a club setting as well, Australia 07 FTW).

the entire The Warning/Vessel/Piggy/Ghosts section you mentioned was the coolest live music spectacle I've ever witnessed..

NIN/Tool or HTDA/Puscifer or Trent/Maynard will probably happen. Eventually. At some point. When the time is right. I'm pretty sure.

As far the Pumpkins, I'd love that a thousand times more than a Soundgarden or Jane's co-tour. Billy's raw talent level far surpasses anyone in either of those bands. But I'm pretty sure I can't see that ever happening. I know there was some beef between the two at some point, not to say Trent isn't above putting it behind him to do it, but there are so many reasons why it wouldn't make sense given where both bands currently find themselves. But it'd be really fucking cool.

Oh boy, the Tool and NIN mega tour conversation again. That would be my concert dream come true but ain't happening. Production wise it would be a logistical nightmare- which would probably mean one band would have to tone it down- and would probably have to be NIN. And if this years shows indicate anything Tool doesn't need any help filling arenas. I'd agree with something TR and Maynard related but that would mean Tool is out of the equation- if a new album actually comes out they would tour on and off for it for at least a couple years.

Which reminds me, from Meathead:

http://www.theninhotline.net/meatpers/html/mp060823.htm

Lol...

"RUMOR: Nine Inch Nails is going to tour with Tool next year.This would certainly be the wet dream of many people who are fans of being bored. Unfortunately for them, this will never happen. One of the most obvious problems here would be deciding who opens for who. Both bands have reached the point where they'll be goddamned if they're going to play second fiddle to anybody else, even the resurrected corpses of the Beatles. I suppose they could take turns, but Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth already tried that, and the last thing we need is Trent stealing yet another idea from those guys. Besides, if I really want a four-hour wankfest, I can do that at home. Oh, and 10,000 Days sucks. Just figured now would be a good time to mention that."

I'm not looking forward to Soundgarden anyway (though it'll at least be worth it if they play Pretty Noose -- do they ever play that these days?), but I don't understand why Cornell is playing guitar. It just makes him be way less good at the thing he's known for, while adding barely anything to the sound of the band. They need a backup guitarist and Chris needs to just sing. /armchair SG criticism from a non-fan

Maynard hasnt been able to sing live in over a decade. Its well known that APC and Tool are shit live these days....as for The Bug, never heard his solo stuff, but he used to partner up with Justin Broadrick from Godflesh in this really sick band called Techno Animal back in the day.

Yes, Maynard still sounds fine with APC and Puscifer. He's lost quite a bit with Tool since some time after 10k Days for whatever reason- I understand it's not the same notes and that topic (he doesn't give a shit, mails it in for Tool, etc.) has been debated and beaten to death ad nauseum on forums so don't even feel like getting down there again.

The scenery is incredible (that's an understatement)- located high atop Red Rocks park. I'm sure you you can google image the hell out of it. There's a few of my pics below when I was there a couple months ago for work and had time to kill before a flight. The ampitheater is open during park hours- you can even go on the stage.

Ive be only been there once, so can't make too much out of it, but it really was probably the best sounding place I've ever been to. Who knew a couple of huge slabs 'o rock would make for great acoustics?

Also not a bad seat in the house, with narrow seating and stepping theatre-like rows. Also have enough room for each person, it's a bit shoulder to shoulder but your seating area is about 2 large people deep.

Add that with a somewhat intimate crowd of 9500 and it's a must-go-to for music lovers.
