BenRemFan, thanks for the review, I'm glad they haven't dropped the Korean song, I loved it live (although someone needs to remind Bret to get the lyrics) and Jemaine really does have a range of accents under his belt.

Ara: I'd recommend looking to see if there's a M&G afterwards. I'm never sure of what to do when meeting people so I followed what others were doing and got picture and signs whilst mumbling words I doubt they heard :lol:

Heh! Thanks for the advice. I don't really know how to find out if there's a M&G, or how long after the show they take place, usually, so, erm, I'm a bit lost, but I could maybe just hang around for a wee while and see if I have any luck xD

Oh, yay ! I hope they play "If You're Into It" tonight, I love all the songs from that episode, it was the first one I ever saw! :3

I'm glad you had such fun BenRemFan!

BenRemFan, welcome, and feel free to introduce yourself here:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4&start=0
We'll be happy to hear more about you. I'm soooo glad they did Inner City Pressure - they opened with it in 2008, and I loved it!

Ari, usually no one knows if they're going to do a meet and greet. Best way to find out? If you see a soundboard setup near the back of the theatre, ask the folks that look like tech people if they travel with the guys, and if they say yes, find out if they're all leaving town after the show, or if they're sticking around. If they have to shove off, it might be tougher to catch the guys. Before the show, ask an usher or someone at the box office how to get to the stage door, that way you'll know where to head after the show. Befriending security guards around the theater can be a help before the show as well, because they're on walkie-talkies and know if plans change for the guys. They may be stuck at a reception backstage for 45 minutes or so, which would add to the normal 40-60 minute wait for them to appear. That was how I knew they were leaving in a dark-windowed van in Boston, with no meet and greet. :(
Good luck, and have a great time!

Nice account, BenRemFan! The show sounded brilliant!! They really seem to be having fun themselves and that only makes the show better for the fans, especially when they play som many songs! :thumb:

Ara, there's bound to be a group of fans at a door...just head there, lol! If you're in the area before the show, you might run into them arriving as well. There've been some pics and mini-greets on this tour.....Good Luck!! I hope you get a proper m&g! :D

They (DKNG) get a set amount of posters from the print run. So they will have some to sell. Just might not happen right away for some reason I guess.

Wow. What a show, we laughed our butts off. I sadly had crappy gallery seats (bought on the fan presale grr) so had to rely on the screens. But it was still fabby with a great atmosphere and a filled auditorium.

I don't know how much I can add to the other excellent account, but I'll give it a try :yawinkle:

Jemaine accidentally sang "Furt Heelings" instead of the obvious, which cracked us all up,

During "Rhymnocerous v Hiphopopotamus" Jemaine said " my rhymes are so potent that in this small segment I made all of the ladies in the first five rows pregnant" then shouted " CONGRATULATIONS BITCCHHESSS!!"

Someone in the stalls shouted out something when the guys were talking between songs, to which Jemaine answered "its insufferable, so its probably best if you don't talk to us". Haha! Wish I'd caught what the guy had said to bring out Grumpy Jem though.

During Robots, Jemaine did part of the song as a very convincing Arnold Swarzenegger doing Terminator,

After singing "Demon Woman" and putting their clothes back on (phew it WAS hot in there!) Bret ripped his jeans back off again to sing "Same Girl/Sugalumps and Jemaine then did the same. They then performed "Sugalumps" in lycra trousers, which demonstrated the song very nicely, I thought :whistle:

I can't think of anything else that hasn't already been covered folks, but it was a fantastic night and I didn't want it to end. I didn't get to the meet n greet though, as my friend has been pupppy sitting for the last fortnight and is understandably knackered. I couldn't have stayed later in good conscience, but I am really sad I missed it. As it was we got home after 1am so it was late enough. Sigh.

Thanks so much for your recap, curlisue. Glad you managed to have great time despite the location of your seats. :D

Yes, I loved when Jemaine said "Congratulations Bitches" during HvR. Hilarious! :lol:

In Dublin, this was accompanied by a *ahem* hand gesture :o
