If I had the opportunity for a relaxed chat (lol...as if that's going to happen), that would be great. But standing outside for 1-2 hours just to say hi and thanks for the show....um, no thanks. I'll let you do the hard work and say hello for me :wink: .
By hecklers, I meant people who were repeatedly shouting out song requests.

I remember that. I was yelling "Petrov." I didn't know that was a bad thing to do back then. Sorry to everyone who was there for being "That Guy." :worry: But that's the only think I did wrong. 8)

No worries :lol:

I don't remember your Petrov request. It's the people that shout out their request for Business Time a million times that really gets on my nerves :twisted: .

I think I remember Bret's response to song requests during the SXSW showcase. It was something along the lines of "I'm not a jukebox" :wink:

:lol: I know just what you mean!

poptartgirl, from our experience in Detroit, it's more than a quick word, a sig and whoosh.....I talked to Jemaine for quite a few minutes and they both signed 4 things and then posed for pics. And it was after 2 am! Not sure if we just got extremely lucky or what....but it was definitely worth it. Since there were a few of us together, we also got to have a little extra chat here and there with them. They didn't seem rushed at all, although Bret told us he was so tired at the very end.
Plus, we only waited 30 minutes or so for Bret, and the maybe 40 for Jemaine. (we thought he might be napping while Bret was with us, lol.)

Thanks for the tips, Laura, but I won't be able to stick around after the show. My friends who will be with me will be ready to go home and go to bed.

I heard from the cousin of his friend's girlfriend's neighbor that he was not about to pay $300 for a ticket. :lol:

There's a dude on Craigslist looking give his other ticket to an attractive, under 25, 5'4" or under girl who just wants to come and have fun- no strings. :o

There are quite a lot on there going for around $75, even Orchestra pit......

My friends aren't selling their tickets. I don't think a decision has been made on whether to stick around for a meet and greet.

should've used quotes.....

poptartgirl, I meant the Craigslist info for anyone who was looking for tix, like maybe Dierdre's friends. :)

I just want everyone who has the possibility to see them live and for a m&g to get to experience it.

I've learned that other friends who I don't see too often are going tonight. I have no idea where their seats are but it'll be nice to see them too
