    Just got home,thought I'd be the first to post a review

    Wow,is all I can say,

    It was great the band sounded real real good

    Not too loud at all,I wore earplugs but had to take em out to hear Ed's guitar like I wanted and I was on the floor probably 50 ft from stage

    I absolutely loved it,I couldnt tell you if any vocals were piped in or not or if Wolf was actually playing his bass

    Actually thats not true,I could tell it was him playing every note

    Wolf's cool,I cant believe how young he sounds,he sounds like his voice hasnt changed yet

    It was great though,Ed was shreddin like I havent seen since 93,light years better than 04

    I hope they come back

    Heres to the Greatest American Rock Band of all time

    WTF,am I the only Linker in Fresno?

    Wow,this in no way should reflect on the crowd as on whole they were very enthusiastic and into the show,everyone in the lower bowl and floor were on their feet the entire show

    Arena was about 75% capacity so I'd estimate around 10,000 were there

    Maybe they are all hungover or somethin I dunno

    Has Eddie been banging on his strings with a drumstick during this tour,I've never seen him do that before,it wasnt Jimmy and the bow but it was different anyway

    I wonder if the band turned down the sound a bit cause I was expecting it to be very loud and it really wasnt that bad

    A couple times when Dave would really bear down and hit the highs and Ed would hit some certain notes it got a little uncomfortable but other than those 4 or 5 times it was cool,I had to remove my earplugs to hear the Master correctly

    he was on last night,95% really,he was just shreddin and looked to be having a ball

    I bet they get sick of playing those songs though,I mean wouldnt you?

    How many times has Ed played RWTD?I'd be sick to death of it

    Anyway I was expecting it to be way louder,2004 was,and I was in the nosebleeds for that one,maybe it wasnt

    I remember the Sam/Dave show was louder,it was that show that had my ears ringing all night and into the next day,that was Selland Arena maybe itwas the acoustics who knows

    Anyway last night was really cool,I saw a lot of younger people groovin to the sounds and older people,people that looked really older than me which kinda freaked me out

    Some of the ladies really cracked me up.None of us look like we did 20 years ago but I wonder whats going through some peoples minds when they get dressed and stand in front of the mirror

    Some of em,a lot of em though have aged really well

    I gotta kick out of the old Dave-ism about somebody's girlfriend in the pit,he told this lady he was gonna sing this next part to her right before he went into the "she's turnin,I'm burnin" part of Panama and the camera caught a look at her and her husband or whatever kinda grabs her and moves her behind him lookin at Dave like yeah try it asshole

    It was a lotta fun,worth twice as much as I paid

    I missed Mike sure,everybody does,but it's good to see Ed and Dave play together again

    Great show and alot of fun!!!!


    It was a great show! evry one sounded really good! Ed fucks up alot and I think he could do better. I liked his tone though! He still totally rocked! Im happy for him .

    I think since 91 Al has been the most valuble player in this band.

    Wolfie is good but would rather see Mike there.

    Dave was great but stands around alot. I think he should moved around more but vocally he sounds great.

    It really wasnt that loud at all. I thought it should have been louder.

    Ed fucked up Beautiful Girls towards the end. oh well They still rocked!!

    I wish it was longer and and not so hurried uped. I would go see it again if I could afford it.
