Fall Tour 2009 (merged)

Recommended Posts

Hey Anton, if people post setlists for the tour, I think you should add them to the tour calendar so we can see what's been played.

noticed there's also no fifth member of the band this year...that's a bit disappointing

 

the keyboards added a lot to it i thought

I really think he should have replaced Milos, to be honest. He's good and all, but his style of playing really doesn't fit with the rest of the band. And after seeing the tour rehearsal video, he needs to find a different tone, as well.

 

Just my opinion though.

On Matt's blog a rehearsal video was posted. It's about 9 minutes long and includes songs from Vancouver and one song in the middle I didn't recognize.

 

The Boy Who Could Explode will be a tough song to sing on the tour.

I am in Row H of the Balcony at Massey, on the LCB side.

 

Those seats any good?

 

You might end up behind a pillar or something...

if that is the case, the ticket or online thinger will say "obstructed view", my friend has had the problem before.

So I bought my tickets for the Saskatoon date the day they went on sale. Well, rather, the minute they went on sale.

 

I got row A seats, which according to the seating chart is the front row. There is the orchestra pit in front of that, but I didn't see any orchestra seating available. In any case, still great seats.

 

However, when I got the seats I was assigned seats 25&27. There are about 60 seats in a row, so I though, "hey, great! right in the middle!" However, I failed to realize that it starts in the middle, with the odd seats going left, and the even going right!

 

So I'm stuck in the front row out on the very edge, in the boonies! I would have rather taken row B near the middle. Argh!

 

Someone help me feel better and rationalize these seats as good!

I will promise to get the sets for both Calgary shows, as I have a habit of jotting them down now.

The ticket doesn't say obstructed view.

 

Checked the seating chart in 3D view as well using my seat number.

 

Looks like i am next to a pillar.

Where is he playing in Saskatoon? (rhetorical)

 

TCU doesn't really have any bad seats. The orchestra pit is a real orchestra pit, so there is never any seating there (I mean, unless you really want to be partially under the stage). Anything in that front row is pretty much spitting distance from the stage.

Yeah, it's at TCU. Good to know the seating will be ok. I've never been to TCU place before. I live in Regina...but no show there for this tour.

Yeah, I went and looked it up that's why my answer was specific about TCU.

 

Parking is shitty in downtown Saskatoon. There is a huge lot right across the street from TCU, but it's hourly. Best bet is actually by the bus depot. Here is a map for you (which I hope has place markers): http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&amp...007349&z=17

 

I used to go to a class at the YMCA which is next door to TCU, so I have some insights... Also, if you didn't know this already, don't park west of Idylwyld... The city gets a little sketchy to that direction.

 

Cheers

If you don't mind walking a couple blocks, there's an IMPark lot in downtown saskatoon at 20th St. East and 2nd Ave (former location of Folk's Finer Furs), which is $3 to park all evening/night after 6. It's two blocks south of TCU Place. That's where I'd be parking, if TCU wasn't a 20-25 minute walk from my apartment.

 

Speaking of which, I picked up my tickets for the show on the 19th today!

I'm suggesting free parking that is about 2.5 blocks. I parked there twice a week for a year and a half and never had a problem. There is tons of parking you can pay for downtown if you want to...

Definitely, but some of it is a better deal than others even though it's all run by the same company.

 

Though if you're pointing him to free stuff, kudos.
