But, but...he lives in Toronto! That's quite a distance to travel in only a couple of hours! LOL! Wouldn't waiting for the Toronto gig be a better option for Alex?

Ah right! Didn't know which city he lived in! There you are Mr Lifeson! Think you can make the Toronto gig? Cheers!

(Although going by the interview with MSP pics he's probably already left the country! )

According to a couple people I conversed with via Twitter, the venue wasn't packed but the crowd consisted of longtime die hards so they really got into it. So far it doesn't appear that they played any covers tonight, but we'll see once someone posts the setlist.

Just home! Great show. Ten years (to the day?) since the last Vancouver gig...totally worth it. Will post a review tomorrow sometime.

And yeah, the venue wasn't full (probably about 500 more capacity than the Seattle venue) but those that were there were right into it. Big singalongs, pogoing, etc. Fun times!

How did the gig compare to the night before? as good? better? worse?

Did they hang around after again?

Any outfit changes?

Still no Ocean Spray though if they could just keep it that way for when I get there I'll be a happy girl.

Not for a whole week yet! Its ghastly.

Hence the hundreds of questions yesterday and today though - I'm not very good at not doing things. I get the feeling though that I'm going to have to learn to get used to it as nest year looks like its going to be a very big year for manics gigs.
