|...this impressive ovoid arena was possibly the largest place on the tour so far, and was packed to capacity with over 12,000 wild SoCal fans. Backstage, things were hoppin with a rediculous amount of guests tripping over one another, including our buddy Darren (see photo) and none other than Tony Hawk, who was surrounded at all times by a cloud of lil' skate rats, like the X-treme pied piper. Sadly, the proliferation of the happy skate children made opportunities to hang with the birdman scarce, so no 'photo ops', sorry. Onstage the rock was again brought to life, though I heard that the 'D' didnt consider this one of their best shows (I disagree). The weez let it fly again, and Pat was heard to say that this was his personal most fun show of the tour so far.
