Is it just me or does Bret look a little jaundiced in the pictures from the "meet and greet"?

I'm SO hoping it's just me. :nails:

Edit: Upon second look (and just so we're all on the same page I'm looking at this picture right here from FOTCMB:

Maybe it's stage makeup? Do the guys even WEAR stage makeup? A little bit, maybe? Maybe they put some on Bret to help with his color in his being sick? The yellowness seems to be on his cheeks and on the sides of his face, whereas around his eyes, nose and mouth looks his "normal" color. So I'm thinking makeup? I don't think jaundice can be that splotchy... :hrm: How long should I ponder this before it's "too much"? :lol:

He's probaby still reeling from the Little Red tragedy.

I have to say I am happy to hear it was an accident. Callously smashing LR on purpose just doesn't seem right. How can you tuck a tiny piano snugly under your arm while high fiving your mate one day, then turn around and smash it to smithereens another?

What a way to go.

I couldn't ask for better, myself. Except I want to be an Omnichord, rocked out upon by Jemaine. :whistle: Just sayin', if I get to choose...

I could.

By replacing "Bret" with "Jemaine" and you've got the exact way I wish to die :nod:

I don't think he looks jaundiced but I do think he's looked ill for awhile in some of the fan pix. I think he looks tired and flushed and drawn. However, there were no signs of him sounding sick last night. He sounded great and seemed to have plenty of energy.

I think Bret looks like crap in a lot of the pics I've seen lately. Not in a crap crap way, but crap looking tired and run down. Tours never seem to treat him well. I remember in Ed one year he got really poorly also and was so pale thin and tired looking.

I'm not sure touring or a long run of gigs agrees with him.

Hope he bounces back soon.

I'm glad it's not just me that thinks that Bret looks really run-down. I was starting to think I was just imagining it. My poor little sausage. I wish he could take a week off to rest and read and eat home-made chicken pie and take naps on the verandah. Being constantly on the road has got to take a toll on your system at the best of times, but if you're feeling rubbish to begin with, it must be exceptionally hard. I feel badly for the lovely fellow. I'd like to chuck him under the chin and tell him to take a few days off to recuperate.

I haven't scrutinised their tour dates, but maybe you lot know - do the boys have any breaks in their schedule planned?

I can't seem to find any good pix from last night's show yet. Everyone seemed to do what I did - take pix off the jumbotron which look like crap. Here's a decent one where you can see Jem's shirt. They both wore jackets for the show ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/96009332@N00/3447919534/) but when they returned for the encore they had taken them off. Someone in the crowd asked Jem what was on his shirt (this was when he still had the jacket on and you couldn't see the shirt too clearly) and he showed it and explained that when you wear glasses you never get to wear sunglasses, which isn't really true but whatever.

Looks like the most time off they have is 2 days between shows and that only happens once or twice.

He looks a bit fevery to me but still put on a great show, professional that he is. :) Get Well vibes out to you, Bret!
(And don't-pass-the-germ-on-to-anyone-else vibes, as well!) :P

Doesn't look like it, Turnip. They have a few single nights here and there where they aren't doing a show, but the longest gap is 2 nights, between Austin, TX and Vancouver - probably because of the distance they've got to travel. So it's a pretty merciless schedule.

I was in Orch 5, Row BB, Seat 513. I could see you from my seat. You most definitely heard the 2 drunkos in front of me. Everyone just gave them dirty looks.

Working on fixing up the photos now, nothing looks great but it's do-able.

Haha, Jemaine said this in the previous NY gig (14th April). Posted a link to the video on page 7 of the related thread.

And yes I've noticed in some pictures such as the one you posted Kelly that Bret does look rather ill but in some other pics such as when he's on stage etc he looks fine. Poor thing, he's still ill and I really hope he makes a full recovery soon. Their tour schedule is pretty heavy so they need to be on top form so they don't tire themselves out.

Poor wee boy. I'm definitely not the stoic type when I'm ill, so I have masses of respect for those troopers like Bret who can get up there and perform while they've got the Black Death. I'd be curled up under the table in the dressing room, whimpering about how I need cough lozenges and my mummy, please.

No spooning Bret on this tour, Jemaine! I don't care how much you need those Rhymenoceros cuddles. You can ask Kristen to be your Little Spoon, but you are NOT to get sickie! Okay?! No no!

No no, indeed! I love Bret, but I don't know what I would do with myself if Jemaine got sick :(
