|...today's venue, the Redbird Arena, apparently takes no chances with crowd injuries, and employed the "T" type barricade which splits the crowd into left and right sides. I detected a definate lessening of the crazy side to side shoving thats been going on of late. Anyway, the crowd looked like they were having fun, so perhaps the Arena chose well in this case...?
Jimmy Eat World returned to the tour today after their Florida side trip and got right in the groove again. Rachel had to stay behind while they were gone, so she was happy to be getting back on stage with them again. Meanwhile, the 'D' is really on a roll now! They are getting funnier, and rocking harder than previously known possible. Weezer continues to tweak the new songs as well as the old ones, with the varying solos, and a key change for 'Dont Let Go'. See the Audio Video section for some recent examples...
