Wow... only half the tickets sold? Well, what do ya expect? It's the worst venue choice I've ever seen.
This is why you don't make deals with wealthy casino owners. How do you play songs song [i]Tom Joad[/i] or[i] Wrecking Ball [/i]there?

Should have come back to Buffalo... or venture out into the rest of the country.

108 bucks each... that is insane.

were probably gonna get a vintage 1973 6 song set. bruce comes out on the guitar plays 6 songs and tells everyone to go back to the tables at the turning stone and lose their money.

Haha... I kinda hope he does. Not for people like you - the diehards - of course, but for all those old rich assholes who got the tickets for free who only want to hear Glory Days or songs that start with "Born".

What time are you planning on getting there? It seems like unless you're there around midnight the view's gonna suck.

wouldnt mind hearing racing again. i was at the gillette show and the ending was probably the best ending ive ever heard to that song and i have so many bootlegs. that one took the cake. all i want if a 78 prove it and my night will be complete.

This will probably be one of the most hits-friendly show on the tour. Waiting on a Sunny Day might be the deep cut.

He played 40 minutes less in Montreal than in Toronto... and that venue was similar to this one, I believe. I wonder if we'll see another big drop in time.

(Of course, 3:40 is pretty tough to stand again. Not to brag or anything. ;) )

oh god dont tell me that. i want some rarities. if he stopped playing waitin on a sunny day all together i would be happy. after that gillette fail i was hoping he was thinking of retiring it. well now he running off a 3 day break plus a half assed show (just kidding but you know what i mean only 3 hours when was the last time he did that?) so maybe he'll be coming out firing to get this crowd pumped up.

What happened at Gilette?
I actually enjoyed Waitin' for the first time ever in Toronto. But for the life of me, I don't understand why or how this song became such a staple... it's astonishing.

he pulled up some kid in a giants hat (im fine with that because im a dolphins fan so i hate the patriots) but the kid didnt know the words to the song he just kept screaming "WAITING!!!" and looking at bruce for help but bruce didnt help him (which was awesome) steve got a real good laugh out of it. i mean when i first heard it off of like barcelona i thought it was aweomse even when i saw it live for the first time i liked it but now its just a whole thing. taking someone out of the crowd wasting 3 minutes on them. it does bring the crowd up though.

Wow... thank you for that. That's hilarious. Bruce handled that 100% perfectly. Good stuff.
Chris, that video makes me really regret never getting in the pit. Bruce is such a god damn character that it must be amazing to see all the little things during a show that some of the video screens miss.

But yeah, pulling the kids up on stage is worn out. Usually it's just parents trying to live vicariously through their offspring. The little girl in Buffalo looked scared to death when she was up there.
