John and the band performed to perfection again last night.  Can't say enough about the sound mixer and especially the bass and drum mix, fantastic!! 

My highlight had to be during my favourite song "Longest Days".  A man in the upper balcony called out during a break in the lyrics and John couldn't contain himself and kept laughing each time he went to start the next verse.  Even funnier was when he actually did start and sang "cast your eyes up to heaven" he quickly did his James Dean look right and up, directly at the spot where the cat call had come from.  Pure improvisation and a sense of humour on the spot!!  Cracked me up!

I haven't seen it mentioned here but something has to be said for the amazing job the Markus' did on the film that opens the show.  There are so many behind the scenes gems and it captures a lot of the essence of touring and what goes into make an album.  Kudos!!  Too bad for the people who chose to have a few beers down in the bar instead of seeing the movie; their loss.

Sounds like fun! I love the way John interacts with the crowd! On Wednesday a guy was cat calling and John told him "yea thats great but I've got a mic and I can shout louder n you" and another girl was calling out "Jack and Diane" and John called back "your so impatient! Well get to that one later!"

I loved the movie too and Im glad we got in just in time so I saw it all. Then my husband sat there after the movie and said "so whos the warm up band"? "that was it" I told him "oh good idea he said"!! Im wondering if it will be avaliable on DVD or download or something it would be a great thing to have on my Ipod. Im annoyed I didnt nip round the back of Massey Hall and get a snap of Johns Airstream I love those things and if I get left a decent amount of money Im getting one!!!

Yes, i was there on the 9th also and loved the comment about having the mic and nicely asking people not to yell out!  Tastefully done and didn't seem to upset anyone.  Yes, he did get to Jack and Diane and I love the new arrangement.  I was also happy to see a few good oldies resurrected like "Real Life".  Another highlight was the lovely duet between Troye and Miriam.  Very soulful and lonely.
