Completely understandable. Makes me feel doubly lucky for ours when they were in MI.

Good on Jemaine for answering her. :) Thanks, SW.

Makes me lucky for the one in Philly as well seeing that it was late and they had to be in Ohio the next night.

Same. It was 2 am before Bret came out, and closer to 3 when Jemaine came out. And they had a 6 hour trip to Bloomington for the next show. It was so sweet of them to do one that night. Though, as I've said before, I doubt they had much of a choice since we were blocking their exit :twisted:

Are they actually on the buses from place to place? I just assumed their stuff drove, and they got on airplanes, and then used the buses to relax before and after performances. Seems to me that would be incredibly tiring to travel by bus with that kind of schedule. They do look exhausted.

As far as I know it's just the bus, same thing last year.

I assumed they'd fly from Texas to Vancouver though but I believe someone on the Vancouver thread said they'd been driving for 2 days.

I'm just surprised they did one at Kent... They already seemed tired and a bit irritated with the hecklers, and it was the last of 4 shows in 3 days.

I figured that's why they haven't been doing meet and greets at every show...the guys deserve as much downtime as they can get with their busy schedule, so the fact that they've been doing all of these m&gs is totally sweet and considerate of them. And I love that Jemaine took the time to respond to that email and explain the situation. What a sweetie :D

That's about the sort of thing I expected.

TBH though, security and management have come out with a few BS excuses to fans waiting :lol: I don't think that helps the speculation amongst fans.
