Ugh. I wish I wasn't on the east coast right now. I would have taken that ticket so quick.

I hope everyone has a great time! I'm sure you guys will. I'll be sending meet and greet vibes!

My feelings exactly! Wish I had known my refund check would come this week. Oh well, Hindsight is 20/20. Hope everyone that gets to go has a blast!

Sully just posted some pictures on her Twitter from the first show. I'm sure we'll see and hear it all, when all is said and done...

Bret wore the shirt again, at least for the first show :)

The peeps on twitter keep referencing a "mini drum solo" by Jemaine on his Sugalumps. There is a picture. I can't wait to hear about the specifics of that one... looks pretty funny.

ps- I truly wonder how these guys continue to get through this song night after night without cracking up. If you actually think about the content, not only does it take "balls" to be able to get up on stage in front of thousands and flaunt your package in front of everyone, but it's also pretty flippin ridiculous. Kudos for keeping straight faces boys, and continuously driving the ladies crazy.

sniff, sniff :tears: no meet and greet tonight....or should I say this morning. LSully, SheWolf, Amanda, 4everconchords and I just left about 15 minutes ago. We were by the buses and they must have left in another vehicle which later caught up with the bus.

There was a girl waiting by the buses who asked when the set was done for Bret's...or as it said inside ROBO BRET head and she got it. She let us all put it on our heads and take a photo of it. What a souvenier to have! LSully almost got Jemaine's but some other person got in front of her and got it :x

Yes Jemaine had a teeny tiny drum set which he played and was heckled about and placed near his sugalumps

You could tell on their faces they were happy, at some points giddy, I think they were glad that this was the final night of shows

I'll post set lists shortly
If I did I'd hold you tight into every single night & we'd fall asleep together & we'd wake up in the sunlight. Well, maybe I'm a dreamer, but, maybe one day you'll see, that dreams are......
......Yeah, yeah she gets it, stop cockblocking me!

What do you mean there was no meet and greet???? How is that possible? Oh no! Our poor girls standing out there, all alone, waiting after flying from ALL OVER! That is really unfortunate. :shock:

I am so sorry ladies :goodman:

I've been silently lurking about waiting for 5 days for the stories of the meet n greet and now, no meet n greet?

Ohhhh.... :( :tears: :tears: :tears: :tears: :tears:
Bret: Have been sheared.
Jemaine: Have been shorn.
