Fri. 29 Dec. Baltimore, MD 1st Mariner Arena 8:00PM
We are going to be there.
So are we!!!! I am so excited. This will be my first time seeing them. My husband got me the tickets for Christmas (as a surprise) but the told me because I was adamant about buying 3 tickets for the family to go see it. My tickets were only going to be $45 each. His were much more...lol...so he and I will be going sans child.

Due to the cook-off I competed in, I've been AFK since Saturday. We saw TSO at the Jacksonville show Sunday night. Absolutely awesome!
However, I understand there are two touring groups, and I believe I've now seen both. I don't know if the show we saw last year was slightly better because it was a different group, because it was the week before Chr-stmas, because it was at Madison Square Garden (their home city), or because it was the first time we ever saw them. But, we do feel last year's performance was slightly better, both in the band members performance and in the male and female vocalists.
We also enjoyed the narrator last year better. But, I am not saying this group wasn't up to snuff, and the light show and pyrotechnics were incredible.
Apparently this was the first time they ever played in Jacksonville, and I think maybe 10% of the audience had seen them before. So, most of the audience had never seen them before, and the band had to really work the crowd in the beginning. But, after a pause in a guitar solo, when I screamed out "Play It!" which garnered a look in my direction, the audience loosened up quite a bit and we had fun.
I was looking forward to being snowed on, since we were down front, but only one side worked, and it wasn't my side of the center aisle.
I'm pretty sure you got the West group this year...and it was one of the first shows--the East had some kinks early on too this year. If I remember right the MSG show last year was almost at the end of December, they're pretty polished by then.
They apparently did some changes with the vocals for the West this year, so the narrator may have been new...this is one of the few years where the East is the same as the previous year (though the band has been pretty constant). One of the West girls was on the Rockstar (??) show this summer/fall (the one with Tommy Lee anyway) as a contestant.
I'm so pumped for this years show, even with the cruddy seats...I'm all the way back in row 22, right side...we've been dead center ~row 10 for the last few years. I like seeing all the on-stage action but it will be great nonetheless.
I love the fact that you yelled Chris Caffery is one of the guitars (and frontman) for the East group, last years Detroit show is on his list as one of the best audiences ever they've had (out of like maybe 10 over the years of touring) so hopefully the Motor City can come through again this year! I even noticed it early in last years show--so many people are going back now, that they have an idea of the playlist and who the culprits are, the cheers are starting before songs and standing O's after most of them.
It is a weird show to go to--it's not *quite* a rock concert....though that's exactly what it is We saw them first at the Detroit Opera House--not quite a rock & roll stronghold Now they are at the Palace of Auburn Hills (basketball arena for any not familiar) and pulling in 12,000.
Anyway...glad to see so many are liking the shows...AND GREAT VIDEOS BUNNIESx3!!!

Our oldest son took his Fianc'e (SP?) to their Dec. 2nd concert at the "Q" in Cleveland. I haven't had a chance to ask how it went. We've just had way too much going on with my dad in the hospital and all. I'll see if I can catch him tonight~that's IF I'm still awake when he gets home! LOL I may hit the bed early tonight.
I thought it was cute that he remembered that she mentioned it once that she'd love to see them one day and as soon as they went on sale he got 'em. What a good boy!
Apparently they had Ian Hunter (Mott the Hoople) show up and he did "Cleveland Rocks" and "All the Young Dudes" with them. So I'm guessing he had a blast.
I'm kind of disappointed, my brother and his wife won't be able to get down here (car trouble) we bought them tickets as a wedding gift. We are able to get our money back though, we are selling the tickets.

We will definately be on the lookout for the presales next year. My kids and I both LOVED it .. it was our first time. We will definately plan better. I did not realize the show was close to 3 hours long - we had to leave early cause of school the next day.
man that would be so upsetting:mad:
i had no idea it was that long either, but at least you did not have to fight cars to leave;)
