Woo Hoo!  It's finally here!

we'll be hanging with friends in the parking lot by a large brownish RV.

Where is ENA? let's have a drink in person! my number is above...text me, we'll leave politics out it default/eyesre4.gif

My wife and I are here and having a great time in Tampa!

My son and I went to the box office this morning and something incredible happened.  I told the nice lady helping us that it was my son's first concert and we were hoping to get something close so he could see the band.  The manager standing behind her said "We'll be releasing some seats around noon."  I said "Ok, should we come back around noon then?" and he said "Just wait a few minutes."  We stand there for 5 minutes or so and he brings us row 10 orchestra pit seats!!!  You should have seen my son's face.  We are so stoked for this show tonight!!  

We were planning to show up a bit early to beat the traffic and get a good parking spot.  Maybe we could meet up before the gates open?

Crowd was f***ing dead for Headlong Flight AND 7COG in 16/17, I was standing up with two other guys air drumming away. No one else was. It bummed me out that I had to sit down.

Me too!!!!

Been a long time since I enjoyed a show as much as that one, and I was sceptical.

I really didn't pay too attention to what lame ass people were doing although I did notice an exodus when Bravado came on, but overall I think the crowd was pretty good. There were a couple other hard core fans around me and we were nerding out to some major air drumming.

Looked like all the seats sold out as well and the lawn was rreally crowded as well.

Good turn out for an awesome show.

A lot more enjoyable than I was expecting.

Absolutely. I was stopped a minimum of 20/30 times and asked about the shirt. Many women asked about it.

Almost forgot. Did anyone else see the guy who was wearing a replica red jumpsuit like the movers on moving pictures are wearing?  Even had the star man on the back

The show last night was great, lots of energy, Tampa usually has a pretty raucous crowd. Looked like an excellent turnout from my vantage point, Sec 6 row J, especially considering that what's left of The Who was playing in Orlando last night. Loved that we got Setlist A, the new material came across great & it was awesome to hear how well the "deep cuts" held up after all these years. This was my 14th concert at the Tampa Amphitheatre & for a place that has zero ambience, it's one hell of a venue to see a show.

i had a great time too. The audio for us in section 4 was not all that great. Have had much better in WPB amphitheater, but I don;t fault the venue.

Nice to hang out with EveryNerveAware and his son Mike.

Great show!

I imagine Neils bass was much boomier up front, no?
He completely drowned out Geddy, and Alex at times.
