Round 3...

Nick Ashford was someone I greatly admired, had the honor of knowing, and was the real-life inspiration for Cowboy Curtis' hair. RIP Nick. - Pee Wee Herman

What's the obsession with threadshitting in the concerts forum by people who aren't even in attendance?

Because I haven't read anywhere that the concert forum is only for those who are in attendance.

And under your own definition, how can someone start a thread in the concert forum for a concert that hasn't yet happened????

So by definition, should we start a thread on the next tour or album?

for those who are asking...

a) its fun to spectate

b) it gives people a thread to run back to at the end of the night so that 10 aren't created.

as it stands, i'm checking about 16 different threads as it is, just in relation to oakland shows.

I actually prefer it this way and think the threads should be stickies. It is extremely annoying to wade through a dozen plus threads to find the setlist for a show.

I think it's getting a bit off point to start them so early...maybe to just have the satisfaction of being the one that started it...but starting them too early is annoying to.

We've arrived and are hanging out in one of the club lounges pre-show.

I popped into the arena to see they've closed off few more of the upper sections tonight, the ones either side of the two directly behind the band, and those directly opposite on the other side (where we were sitting on Monday).

There will be a lot of people getting upgraded tonight...

Oh - and I checked with a staff member who said that GCS *would* be playing again tonight, which pretty much puts an end to my hopes of a Morris Day & The Time opener. So it goes... smile

EDIT to update: It's almost 8:30pm and no Larry Graham. All the followspot operators are already up in the rig (they've been climbing up after the opener).

So, maybe no Opening act at all tonight?

Instead of complaining about people starting a thread hours before the concert (and what's wrong with that?), you should be talking about the show. You know, whether it's sold out or not, who will be the guest on stage, any surprises in the setlist and other things.

That was kinda the point of my post.

Also, he didn't write it for Sinead O'Connor - she chose (I believe against his wishes) to cover it.
