boston



while the non-visible back sections were quite thin, this was definitely a much better turnout than i had feared.

what a fucking joke those floor sections were though. both supposedly cost the same, both supposedly "sold out" from day one of on sale.

now to find some good barclays pics...

^ One of the many reasons I loathe the Agganis.

For those who are local but haven't been there, the seats are smaller than the Orpheum's & Fenway Park's.

what, the floor sections?

was my first time there, aside from the bathrooms being way too fucking small, it seemed fine for an arena.

cutting off beer sales at 9:30 was a bit strange, but irrelevant to me.

There was only about 2700 at the Dallas show.

Are there other venues in the country that have a barrier on the floor such as the Agganis? That might be one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.
I got a really good seat in section 102 the day off but a friend wound up giving me her wristband so I could head on the floor.

they kinda arent. it being the only new england show so far on the album cycle thus far probably helped. i know of a lot of other mainers who came down for it, one of my good friends came up from connecticut, so im sure there was lots of out of staters.

even though from the pics ive seen so far from barclays that it looks like it was a good turnout as well, im guessing/hoping these handful of arena shows are more of them just taking a crack at that scale while riding high on the reception of the latest album. as great as they are, i still think they are still too left of center to make the jump to arena band outright.

Yeah prior to the Agganis show the biggest place I'd seen them headline was the House of Blues in Boston. While I'd say they do deserve it I'd rather see them play those smaller venues again.

Yeah, their floor sections are retarded. It was the same setup for the BlackDiamondSkye show and the Zombie/Manson show that ended up getting cancelled for no reason & moved to frigging Glens Falls, NY.

Wasn't aware of the beer cutoff time.

The first time I went there was in 2009 for the annual Comics Come Home benefit show. I had stage right loge seats about 10 rows back. As soon as I sat down, I was pissed at how small the seats were. Granted I'm a big dude (6'2", 270), I have zero complaints about the seats at the Garden, Verizon or Tsongas. The cupholders on the armrests were scraping my sides the entire time.
