Setlist was the same, crowd was so small the back of the arena was draped with a black cloth. Either they hadn't sold those seats, or they moved the people that were there. A lot of people were sitting down on the sides. The only real enthusiam was on the floor. Probably cause they let you go up to the catwalk..YAY!! :-) Paul messed up pretty bad on WATC. Not sure what he was doing. I thought for a second he paused to let the crowd sing, but I think he just forgot was he was singing..DOH! Anyways..y'all have me worried about the weather in Cleveland, so I'm off to weather.com. God, I hope there's no ICE. I'm from S.C.. I can't handle no damn ice and snow in the SPRING! Lordy..;-)

Paul also messed up badly at the end of AOBTD. He just forgot to sing the end of the song. Spike was frantically pointing at him but he did not seem to notice. WATC was a major fuck up. Once Paul realized that he had no idea where he was in the song he started to improvise. Eventually, after what seemed like an eternity he managed to finish the song. As Erin said, the crowd sucked, but the band sounded great. Under Pressue was well done, but Brian does not need to try and hit the high notes :-)

I definately enjoyed the show. The crowd was just kinda lame. I would not say that any song got a huge reaction. Certainly not anything like the crowd reaction in Duluth.

I have a feeling that Cleveland will rock... Onwards...

Might be why they didn't do an extra long version of All Right Now...like they did in Jacksonville and Duluth and probably most all of the other dates..:-P

we had a great time at the Pittsburgh show, but yeah Paul missed on AOBTD and WATC. Brian tore up on the solos for FBG; Danny and Jamie were jumping around the drum riser while Paul hung out with Spike, and Brian went to the catwalk for a solo. "Take Love" had a good response. Dragon Attack seemed a little mechanical. John's just got a slice of real funk is all. Paul did more improv with the crowd than NJ. Under Pressure went "goodly," my favorite bit of the night other than Last Horizon. Jamie did awesome on The Show Must Go On. Paul actually wore Steelers' colors for a while-- gold A-top, dark slacks, white shirt. The smoke machines & flashpots on IWTBF and the guitar solo were awesome! Thanks guys see yas in Cleveland :)

I thought it was great, I noticed the mess up an the end of AOBTD, but we are the champions was fine, i liked the improv during that. The whole show was spectaular, but the lack of attendence was due to poor promotion and ticket prices. I managed to somehow (i dont know how) get Pauls autograph and after a long discussion, managed to get the setlist from the mixing desk. AND was invited to play at the Breakthru convention this august. I could carless on peoples opinions, last night was the greatest night of my life.

We went to the mixing desk and just asked for the setlist and they just gave us one. It looked like they had several copies of it there.

We checked out the weather, I think we will be ok. It looks like the worst of that weather is going to miss Cleveland.

They had multiple copies of the setlist sitting at the soundboard.

Yes, the ABTD ended fairly abruptly, from my vantage point it looked like JM and DM were having a pretty good laugh about it together.

I can't believe how small the crowd was. Mellon Arena holds like 17K, so you could expect that this place wouldn't be filled...but there couldn't have been more than 5000 people there last night.

The band's performance was great, but the electricity of the Worcester MA show has yet to be matched.

We had a GREAT TIME! And thought the show went off really good! And the reason the curtains were covered over the back row, was Sunday night at the Pens (NHL-Hockey team) the power went out twice during the game, and the second time it went out was because the fuse box caught on fire in that back row section so that was the reason...for safety reasons. Pittsburgh doesn't suck the section we were in, were singing and having a great time, but the only thing I was disappointed at was, the Hotel we were staying at, The Hilton Doubletree across from the Arena, The band was there, checking in Saturday morning, and checking out Monday morning, we arrived Monday afternoon, so i was sooo disappointed about that, and the band rented out 98 rooms there, and Brian May and Roger Taylor and the guys drove around Pittsburgh in the hotel shuttle and party'd Saturday night....so Pittsburgh doesn't suck!
on to Cleveland....

BTW I have pics from the concert but not sure how to upload them, can anyone assist me on this!

thanks!
Micky

Waddaya mean you don't know "how?" You must have waited for Paul outside the arena or something to get his autograph...
