Does anyone know what set Alex off at the beginning of the show? He was pissed! I turned around and saw security escorting someone out. What would upset him that much?

Just got home from Concord and a whirlwind weekend.  The Reno show was great, and I'm sorry I missed a lot of you all.  Brew Brothers was packed.  I was there from 4:30 to 5:30 and I saw Ryan (Sark) but no one else from this board.  Maybe I saw you and just didn't know that you were you!  I was wearing a white P/G shirt with the Egg and Vice on the back.  I did meet up with a few others from RT and Jim (CygX1-BK2) showed up around 7pm and we walked over to the event center together.  Brew Brothers was even more packed after the show, and we didn't wait in line to get in.  I ended up gambling/drinking until 4am.  The next day, drove 3 1/2 hours to Concord for the Sunday night show.  Concord was amazing.  I ran out a bit early to beat the traffic, drove 1 1/2 hours home and here I am.  What a Rush weekend.  I'm tired.

Yeah, what was up with the no-shows? Anyway, it was a great show. There was some moron that jumped on stage at the end of YYZ, but security got him right away.

My friend did'nt end up getting in until later so we did'nt make the pre-show deal.
   Yea, right off the bat, someone really pissed off Alex! I think it kind of affected his mood for the rest of the show. He and Ged did'nt seem to mix it up with the crowd.............seemed very "work-man" like.
  It was still a great show. 17th row seats..............pretty awesome!!!!
     Those video intros were hilarious.................... rofl3.gif ............. 2.gif

I know at first I thought he was just kidding around but it became apparent pretty quickly he was not happy. He didn't really seem to loosen up until well into the second half.

They are incredible. By far the best show I have ever seen. I still have a bit of a sore throat.

Yeah, what was up with the no-shows?

I was at Brew Bros before the show, for about 90 min, but the set-up of the joint was funky. They wouldn't let us just hang around the bar, so we had to sit at a table. I was right on the rail next to the line to get in. I missed some good friends that were there at the same time, but again, they wouldn't let us circulate.

By 11:30 I was pretty shot, so i didn't make it to the post-party. had to get the little ones home.

That dude that jumped on stage was right next to us. He went right over my wife to get on stage. Most of the other fans were really cool during the show, except for a couple of drunks. Lots of chicks!

One douchebag kept yelling "Get down with your bad self!" all during 2112. That's about as bad as it got.

Geddy was awesome. made lots of eye contact and played to the crowd stage-left of the keyboards. If you ever get a chance to go up front, do!

I posted some pics in the Reno Pics thread.
