Some thoughts while watching the show: Even when I was drinking, I would never drink at concerts. I didn’t have any money ($9 for a 20 oz. beer!?) and I came to watch the show, not get hammered. The guys in our row made two beer runs and two bathroom runs. What a waste. BTW, I do not believe in the myth of the contact high. We had a few people firing up “the herb” all around us and it didn’t faze me at all. Then we had 6 people all light cigarettes at the same time. Kill me. I think I would rather smell pot than cigarettes.
Two hour concert (which was fantastic, see review below). We get to the car at 10:48, roll out of our spot and stop almost immediately…for an hour and twenty minutes! We weren’t even creeping; we were stopped with our car off and watching all of the drunk and stoned concert goers look for their cars. Hey, Live Nation, how about directing traffic OUT of the venue. Seeing an opening that originally looked like you were going the wrong way, we get out and finally get on the road about 12:30 and then get home at 2:30am.Anyway, the memory still lingers of a great show, despite a few opportunities for it to be stolen. Now, should I look into getting tickets to Coldplay (they are in KC in July. I’ve seen them once, great show, but…) Death Cab for Cutie is in
