I waited for almost two hours after the Minneapolis show. According to reports, they either left early or were hanging out with Leonard Cohen. :?

I wouldn't call it a meet and greet either :)
Yis & I believe that was the case in SLC with Jemaine. There was no M&G but Jemaine was told that there were gifts waiting from a particular group so he met with them but no one else. I figure I'll fill those details into the list at the end as I don't believe anyone from this board went to that show.

Yip that was my plan Sherry. I didn't feel like perusing every old thread to gather the info so I figured we could get the bulk of it done here and then go back and fill in the others.

I helped with part of that gift. Just as a side note, Jemaine looked to be a mix of amused/impressed/horrified :lol:

I know! I thought it was be hard for them being in the same town as Leonard the day of their show, but if they either got to catch some of the show or meet him afterward, I totally understand!

As my husband put it, "they're probably fangeeks for him the way you are for them!" :D

well maybe not exactly...

I didn't see any horrified looks. I think he greatly appreciated it. :) There was a lot of luv in that quilt.

I definitely saw some horror, but maybe that's just my slight paranoia talking ;)

Just got your email about this, SheWolf. See how quickly I comply when prompted? :yawinkle:
Not sure about the number of people. I just know there were a LOT of us in that alley--getting soaked for two hours as we waited! But it was well worth it.

I just realized that I didn't copy the Tampa date. Oops! A friend of mine went to the show in Tampa. For some reason, I'm thinking that there wasn't a meet and greet there. I could be wrong though.

I recall one interview where they said their two musical influences were Leonard Cohen and the Muppets. :D

Hey SW.. I do remember hearing that there was NO M&G for ANY of the Texas shows. So if you wanted to mark no for Houston too..
