2010 Tour Meet & Greet Analysis

Postby SheWolf » Thu May 27, 2010 2:58 pm

We did this last year and it was enlightening. For some reason I found this tour difficult to get my head around. Europe, UK, Europe, back to the UK, different venues in the same city, venue changes, some US dates :rolleyes: I think for half the tour my mind was still in Amsterdam & many of these shows (the UK ones mostly) have become one in my mind. In addition, we had "meets" that begged the question - what is a meet and greet anyway? Since some seemed to be official (queuing in a designated space to await their arrival) and others more random (meeting them at the stage door or box office) I'm hoping everyone can help me fill in the blanks of whether there was a M&G in your city and roughly how many people were there. :)


M&G?
May 3 Amsterdam Melkweg ---- No
May 4 Amsterdam Melkweg ---- No. But about 15 of us met Jemaine in the box office lobby after the show.
May 5 Dublin Olympia
May 6 Dublin Olympia

May 8 Manchester Apollo
May 10 Birmingham NIA
May 11 Manchester Apollo
May 12 Manchester Apollo

May 14 Glasgow SECC
May 15 Glasgow SECC

May 16 London Hammersmith Apollo
May 17 London Hammersmith Apollo
May 18 London Wembley Arena

May 20 Bergen Grieghallen
May 22 Oslo Folkteatern
May 23 Copenhagen Falconer
May 24 Stockholm Cirkus

May 25 London Wembley Arena

May 28 Berkeley Greek Theater-----TBA
May 29 Las Vegas Planet Hollywood Theater-----TBA
May 30 Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl---_TBA

May 5 Dublin Olympia -No, waited until 1am at the stage door. At first there was about 30, which whittled down to myself, funnys and Bakergirl.
May 6 Dublin Olympia -Nothing official but we met Jemaine going in the stage door after waiting about an hour.

May 11 Manchester Apollo -Official M&G (about 40-50 people at least were there, the guys were there for over half an hour anyway) and unofficial as they arrived (about 15 people milling around).

May 10 Birmingham NIA--- Yes. There were under 20 of us I think?
May 17 London Hammersmith Apollo----Yes. There were 10 of us.
May 25 London Wembley Arena----No (I didn't hang around for that long to see if there was but we've been reliably informed that there wasn't a M&G)

I have no doubt there will be meet and greets at these shows. The guys know who love them... :wink:

:pray: here's hoping all of you get to meet and hug our guys in California and Vegas!!

22may oslo: no :( there were 8 of us waiting there.. 2 in the end when after 3H waiting we decided to leave. Turns out the guys hanged with the theatre crew.

23may Copenhagen: yes! Yes! YES! :D there were less than 10 people waiting and they came out <1H after the show

24may Stockholm: i didn't stay after the show..but i haven't seen any evidence of there being a m&g. :dunno:
But if you did I'd hold you tight / Into every single night
And we'd fall asleep together / And we'd wake up in the sunlight
Well, maybe I'm a dreamer / But maybe one day you'll see / That dreams are...

Thanks guys. I'll update shortly. We are waiting on info from both Glasgow shows, Manchester Apollo on the 8th, Hammersmith Apollo on the 16th and Wembley Arena on the 18th. I'll have a look around and see if I can figure out what's what with those. :wink:

If I remember correctly there was a m&g at 15th Glasgow and 8th (no one on here was there but there were photos of the guys with people somewhere on the internet).
Then Wembley 18th, Bret came out but Jemaine didn't.

As far as I know, there was no meet and greet on the 16th, there were meet and greets after both Glasgow shows on the 14th and 15th and there wasn't a meet and greet after the Manchester show on the 12th.

Using the info compiled here, of the 18 shows held so far we have:

8 yes to M&G
9 no to M&G
& 1 partial (?) with Bret only in Wembley on the 18th. If you count that as a yes then it's a dead heat :)

Last year the results were split pretty evenly as well.

So are you trying to mathematically determine the probability of a m&g at the next 3 shows??? Trying to see patterns and such??

No, I am just curious about how often they do M&Gs & this was a way for me to organize and see it in a clear way.
