This was my 8th time seeing Alice and it was another great show as usual. The stage was extremely low and close so I could have easily reached and and touched him. I was on the rail in the center right in front of Alice's little podium. We didn't get the spark shower during Hello Hooray likely due to venue size but it was cool to hear that one and House of Fire. He's Back was one that I had been really looking forward to. Caffeine was really funny with the giant coffee mug he brought out and Department of Youth was another track I'd never see him do before. The snake was almost a little too close for comfort during Welcome to my Nightmare. The covers section was cool, I like Revolution the best out of them all. Ballad of Dwight Fry saw Alice in a straight jacket kneeling over about a foot from my face. My girlfriend took some pictures of this part of the show and I reminded her to turn the flash off because we would have just about blinded him at that distance. He brought out all his usual tricks such as the guillotine, Frankenstein monster, confetti, snake, etc. Bringing him out on the gurney was a cool way to start the covers section. During Dirty Diamonds when he was throwing out beads he went to hand one to my girlfriend and then when she reached for it he threw it up to the balcony which was pretty funny.

Can't wait to see him again.

Merch was a little overpriced at $40 a shirt but I got one anyways as I haven't bought anything from him the last five times I had seen him.
