I couldn't stick around to find out if they did or not - my best friend and fellow concert goer is sick (not h1n1!), and had to get up for work in the AM, so we didn't stay.

Mohumbhai- I believe it was Cuse who said he might send a sase to a later gig's venue asking for autographs. You could send them on to one of the CA venues and perhaps they'll be waiting in their dressing room for them when they arrive.

I'm feeling luckier and luckier to have met them before the DEADLY SWINE FLU :roll: scared them away from the meet-and-greets. Although I'm sure it's their jittery managers and not the guys themselves.

You're welcome. :) Hope you get them to the guys, I bet they'd like them.

Hmmm, sorry Cuse. The actual person-with-the-good-idea will let us know, hopefully. I know I said we'd probably steal it, lol. :D

It is amazing that people are freaking out over this. You would want to get the swine flu right now, no? These pandemics tend to start bad, then really ease up with the symptoms, and then get worse as time goes on. By the sounds of it, most people seem to have mild symptoms, just the run of the mill flu. And then, once you do have it, you have a far better immunity if not entirely immunity to it for future months as it really starts to get scary.

get those piggies some tissues.

Poster? Didn't get anywhere the merch table. It was insane.
And besides the fire alarm that wouldn't quit ... Worst. Ushers. Ever.

Exactly. Don't even start me on how this is The. Most. Ridiculous. excuse I've ever heard. I can't even watch the news anymore because it's the usual over hype/over panic crap that makes me want to gouge my eyes and ears out. :x Sorry, please resume regularly scheduled topic.

Thanks for the recaps guys! Glad you enjoyed the show but those fire alarms must have been annoying. Shame about the meet and greet situation but I hope your CD reaches them mohumbhai mania :)

I hope it was a case of the venue protecting itself from possible suits if they were to become sick and this won't be done for the rest of the tour. :( That would suck.

It is ridiculous....we actually have schools here closing down for a week and over a week simply because of suspected cases, not even confirmed ones!

Here's a review of last night's show: (He called Nigel "Virgil!" ) :tsk: He's clearly not a big fan, but had some good things to say-
