We were in Row 14. There were actually a couple of empty blocks of seats a couple of rows in front of us. Then, halfway into the show, the couple right in front of us left for some reason ("The height of rudeness") and we had an even better view. :)

Or at least turns them inside out.

note to SW: I better leave this thread now before Sherry has the need to throw us both off - I know how these conversations between us can escalate... :shock: :bounce:
Bret: Have been sheared.
Jemaine: Have been shorn.

Got this email in earlier

1.Too Many Dicks
2.Most Beautiful Girl
3.Hurt Feelings
4.Stana
5.Carol Brown
6.Jenny
7.I Told You I was Freekie
8.I'm Not Crying
9.Mutha'uckas
10.A Kiss is not a Contract
11.Bus Driver's Song
12.Robots
13.Albi
14.We're Both in Love with a Sexy Lady/Sugar Lumps

Encore: Demon Woman, Hiphopopotamus Vs.Rhymenoceros, Bowie

The show was so great, the guys put on a wonderful show! Our show
was unfortunate enough to have a bunch of "that guys" in the
audience. Oddly enough, most of our "that guy" were ladies (I
use the term lightly). Though we do score some points for not
having any "Freebird" requests! (At least I didn't hear any!) I
wished the guys could have done more banter in between songs,
but they just couldn't seem to get it started before they were
rudely interrupted again, again & again! But the guys handled the
hecklers pretty well I thought.

Probably the funniest bit was at the end of the show during
Sugar Lumps, Bret jumped off stage & grabbed some lady from
the front row. He pulled her towards the stage & then he
jumped back on stage leaving this poor lady not sure what to do.
She tried to climb up after him & security was there to help her
on her way. Bret told the security guy something,& the lady was able
to return to her seat. So while the guys are finishing singing
Sugar Lumps Bret is laughing so hard he can hardly sing along with
Jemaine, & he tells this poor lady that he's sorry. Then they end the
song & walk off stage. All the while Bret is looking rather embarrassed
about almost getting a fan kicked out of the show.

Not sure about a meet & greet after show as I left shortly after it
all ended. Hope this is somewhat helpful, & sorry if it's a bit
rambling (that's just how I work!). Thanks for all the hard work &
time you put into your site, I really enjoy it!

Take Care & Cheers---Sarah


Its worth mentioning I have an email from the lady who almost got kicked out for trying to get up on the stage. Her side of things explains a great deal. Will post about it later.

Ooh that must have been pretty embarrassing for that lady. It'll be interesting to hear her side of things too.

But that's kind of what they've been doing with Sugalumps lately right? They stand on the edge of the stage and pretend to encourage ladies to touch their lumps then jump away and act like the lady is crazy, whether there is actually a lady with her arms out or not. Like the bit here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNJmaBbbFYo when there was a lady standing up with her arms out.

I really enjoyed this show. My husband and I were in the eleventh row on the floor, so we had pretty good seats. I was really upset that I couldn't bring my camera in (I probably could have snuck it in, they didn't do that good of a bag check), so I only got a few blurry iPhone shots in the auditorium (and wow, was that auditorium shady).

Near the end of the show, I leaned over to my husband and said, "If they don't play "Business Time", this place is going to riot." They did not play "Business Time". And yet, there was no riot. I feel like the crowd wasn't totally into this show.

We stayed for the meet and greet. It only took an hour standing in the cold drizzle. The old guy guarding the tour buses who thought he was a comedian kept telling us that Bret and Jemaine weren't going to sign autographs because it was raining. We refused to believe him. Someone else came out and told us that they weren't going to sign because they didn't have time. I knew that was a lie because they didn't have to be in Ottawa for the next show for two days, so they had plenty of time to sign autographs.

Kristen Schaal came out first and was very gracious. I babbled about how Mel is my favorite character and she just let me babble while she signed my record. Bret was next. Bret is a MACHINE when it comes to these meet and greets. He went down the line in the most efficient way I could have imagined. He took the time to chat, but he was in perpetual motion. He asked my name when he went to sign my record and it went something like this:

Me: Kiesha
Bret: What's that?
Me: Kiesha. K-I-E-S-H-A
Bret: One more time
Me: K-I-E-S-H-A
Bret: K-I-E...

It was pretty funny. After he signed, he took a photo with me and put his arm around my shoulders. Yay!

Jemaine was much more reserved with the crowd. He seemed tired or something, but he wasn't into as much as Bret was. But he still graciously signed everyone's stuff and took pictures and tolerated all the giggly girls.

Signing autographs and posing for pictures is one of the most decent things a band or celebrity can do, and I'm so glad the guys take the time to do it. It made my night.

I apologize to anyone standing around me who had to listen to my half-assed comedy routine. I was nervous that the guys weren't coming out and when I get nervous, I start talking and trying to be funny. I also apologize if I hit you with my umbrella.

Ah thanks Kiesha for sharing the pics and your account of the show and meet and greet with us. Really glad you had enjoyed yourself. I know, it's so sweet of Bret and Jemaine to set aside time to meet some of their fans :)
