...so, Philadelphia. Ahh. Warm! SO nice after that wicked Boston Nor'Easter activity. The line up around the Electric Factory (and I do mean all the way around) was chock full of cool sights, from all sorts of homemade weezer t-shirts to several stoked youngsters waiting to get into their very first concert, to active JONAS members flying their colors. With all the good cheer and fun in the line-up it was suprising to see pockets of rough activity in the floor crowd tonight. The floor was packed to the gills so there wasnt any elbow room, and several people had to be carried out after fainting. Fan Mary Kate reports: "...there was people intentionally trying to push people down and slam into other people. [My friend] started screaming for this girl pressing down on her ribcage to stop, but the girl refused and Amber passed out. I had to carry her through the huge crowd and despite screaming for help, no one even tried to make way for me." Unfortunately, the reports of pushing and shoving during this show were more than usual, and there was even a fight that broke out during 'The Good Life' (ironically). Apparently some young lads were a little too hopped up on goofballs and one had to be dragged out of the crowd by security after throwing some punches. Easy, there, guy! This isnt a Slayer show! And remember, if you see someone having trouble in a packed crowd, lend a hand, help them out of a jam! But all in all, this show was another stone jam, with a LOUD sing-along going on for many songs - I think "Jonas" gets the prize - every night it seems like every single person in the place is shouting along!
