They came on around 8:15 or so. Played almost two hours. The front of the house was cabaret tables, filled by I assume theater benefactors/members, as where the first few rows. They where very lame and lethargic. Schenker would be soloing inches from peoples faces, and they just stood there emotionless. The back of the house was OK, but Doogie had to tell the front to stand up after the first song, that is how bad it was. We ended up on the side maybe about 10 feet from the stage by the end, but no one was allowed into the cabaret area other than the seat holders, so from the stage it must have presented a weird dynamic. Back of the house cheering, front just sitting there.
