So who is going to opening night and sending out song by song? My show in St. Louis is only a month a way.  Starting to get real.

I'm going on opening night but I am not going to do anything as tacky as spending all my time on my phone, posting about songs.  I'm there to see the show and pay attention to the band!

Well I hope someone does.  I remember sitting on the PC for the first night of CA watching the setlist get posted song by song.  It was fun!

I agree 100%! Was at a Fleetwood Mac concert a couple of weeks ago and the guy sitting next to me (3rd row center) was either taking pictures with his phone or looking at them after he took them. I finally said something to him, mainly because he was putting his phone in front of my face, why don't you enjoy the concert now, instead of later and if you put your phone in my face again we are going to have a problem. Yes a few pictures here and there, but enjoy the show!

If someone wants to post the setlist that's fine.  But take 3 seconds during each song to write them down and post during the intermission and after the show.  Don't waste 30-60 seconds from each song to post as they happen.  I assume since you paid $$$ for the ticket you did so to see the band, not to have the opportunity to post the setlist.   :codger: indeed!

Just don't tell us if there's anything post 1986 in the setlist...

Get a front row center seat to the first show...build a  video camera into a hat that no one can detect....and have two friends with nice microphones that are in front of the left and right speaker columns, and broadcast the show for all of us!

THAT earns you :bacon: !

Easy peasey!

20-25 years ago an engineer friend of mine built glasses with microphones at either temple, and he would record shows that way.

If I was going opening night, I'd just post a bogus set list just to watch people flip out.

But that's just me. :P

There were several forums posting instantaneously as each song was played.  I believe even setlistfm was updating rather quickly.

I need to live vicariously through someone, gosh darn it
