  1. When people talk through songs. :noey:

     

    When people talk or TEXT through songs, especially if you are in GA. During the Boston show there was a couple who were sitting on the barrier, scrolling through instagram during Muse's set. I don't understand people who waste money for a show just to be on their phone the whole time.

  2. Didn't GA sell out, though? I think the stage just made it look more empty; they never stuff the floor full at any gigs, but you don't notice because it's all in the very back opposite the endstage.

     

    I also keep hearing that Boston had some really crazy safety restrictions that held back the number of GA tix that could be sold, as well as even where people were allowed to stand on the floor.

     

    But I 100% agree they should do smaller venues, and I never really understood why they don't, as they keep claiming they barely break even on the arena gigs. They must rake in the cash with stuff like the Psycho Tour.

    It would help them build up a dedicated fanbase, too.

     

    Did it sell out? It definitely didn't look like it, the crowd mostly concentrated around the barrier. Most of the top seats didn't fill up either. It just didn't seem like a really big crowd, and yes the security there was kinda crazy.

     

    They also made an announcement before the band went on about how the show was being recorded and the use of flash was prohibited. Does this happen at every show?

  3. Do they normally leave before the encore, though? Or like nine songs in?

     

    I noticed last night that a lot of people started to leave after The Globalist once the second Drones started, which to a first time concert goer ( or a casual fan) might seem like the end of the show honestly.

  4. I'm confused about the whole wristband/will call process. Can someone explain?

     

    My understanding is between now and 5 I can go get a wristband, which holds my party's spot in line. Where is the security guard you guys are mentioning? I'm familiar with the TD Garden but I've never seen a concert there.

     

    If the line starts at 5, does that mean for GA if I have a wristband I just need to get in before 6:30?

     

     

    They are hanging out in the second North Station entrance near the ticket booths. Basically, they start lining up outside at 5 according to your wristband number. So yes, I'd just be here before 630.

  5. How does the wristband thing work?

     

    I'm thinking of getting there at 5pm, before will call tickets can be picked up. Hopefully the line won't be too long then...

     

    It secures your place in line, they line everyone up for GA in sequential order. They start lining up at 5pm, and there is already over 50 wristbands given out. I'm 46 in line, which still isn't too bad.

  6. Are your GA tickets will call? How early do you all plan to join the line?

     

    It's going to be my first show at TD Garden too so I'm not sure about how the will call system works, though TD Garden website states that the box office opens 2 hours prior to the show.

     

    No, I printed out my ticket.

     

    It depends on the weather honestly, and I'm not bringing a bag or driving. This is the first time Ive waiting in line during the winter, in the Northeast. :LOL:

  7. No idea, this is my first show at TD Garden. The shows I've been to, someone usually brings a marker and we write our placement in line on our hands. I'm probably going to take the train, but depending on the weather I dunno if I'm going to go super early or not.

  8. I can deal with Matt lowering songs, not doing the notes in DI or one of the Madness ones (ONE!) - but I simply cannot think of any reason for the short sets than laziness, other than they think certain fans don't "deserve" more - and that's an even more appalling option.

    (Especially looking at even some US shows being 1-3 songs shorter than the rest.)

     

    I'd still put "getting away with it because you can/because it's the US" under "lazy," though. Not giving it your all because of locale doesn't show much integrity.

     

    America always gets shafted, because Muse still aren't that big in America. The band probably thinks other rare/older songs wouldn't be received well, and rightfully so. I feel like if they toured smaller venues here, they'd sell out way quicker and probably have a better audience where they can pull out a few oldies and whatnot. The fact we are getting Bliss/Citizen Erased and AP on this tour is a treat. (Much like RBS and Sunburn last tours)
