Excellent review! I'm glad you liked the show. This is how I've felt about every headlining QR show I've seen.
That sucks about the audience though. You would've liked it better at the shows I go to. At the House of Blues we're always down front and center against the rail and we are fucking crazy dudes. There's always at least a few rows directly behind us that get really caught up in it too.
Only once I saw QR in a venue that is a sit-down venue, and it was a weird experience. I was able to focus on the performance better - and I enjoyed it, but it's not the same as being down front head banging and stuff.
I think this show is going to make for a brilliant DVD.
