Seattle is of course home of the Original Starbucks store (now there are 1,567,890,234) had you bought shares in it then you would now be able to go horse shopping with Bruce

Seattle is of course also where most Boeing aircraft are made - although they officially moved their HQ to Chicago (where they don't even manufacture anything) in a notorious tax dodge a few years ago

apparently Seattle is the largest yankee city without a MAJOR indoor sports team ie no netball or hockey) after the SuperSonics left for the delights of Oklahoma City!

so the Key Arena where Bruce is playing is a bit of a White Elephant these days and it doesn't really look like an arena from above more a giant church...

Bruce's good friend Tom Hanks of course made a movie in Seattle - here he is on hold with Ticketmaster trying to buy tickets to a Bruce show in the movie!

It kind of looks like an umbrella, which, having read your post above about the rain, makes sense.

My son at grandmas pad which is almost the identical spot of the above pic. 4 blocks from Keyarena. He's 16 and it is his first Boss show. We're going for the pit. 20151126_150849_Burst01.jpg

weather related update: the show after this is of course the Shark Snowmageddon Makeup date in NYC and then the following show is in Denver where currently they are

experiencing their own Snowmageddon, and who is scheduled to attend that show but one Mr Sharky - had the Denver show been tomorrow it would have been deja vu.

If the Denver show was tomorrow, it would be cancelled for sure

Glad he is going back to NYC, very sorry to miss this night, it will be the first Seattle show I have missed in maybe 6-7 years

I think everyone is missing tonight...since the show is tomorrow night.  Who hires these Moderators anyway?
