I think Monster was the last album I bought at midnight the day of its release. It was in college. Good times.

I had a star tee shirt like the one Stipe wears in that video - I wish I still had it. I actually had a good handful of cool shirts from the Monster tour. That was the first tour I saw them on, and saw them twice. Milwaukee and Chicago.

I remember buying Monster the day it was released, down in Manhattan (I was interning at the NFL at the time)...and listening to it for the first time on the D train on the way home....

Did you see them at the Rosemont Horizon? I was at back to back shows. We had nosebleeds from the first one, and then scored like 15th row for a little over face value the second night. I remember writing the setlists down on yellow post-its.

Christ, I didn't realize how big that file was.

I have a smaller one that strangely seems to be better quality, as it's from a better-recorded show.

PM me. Again.

I'm trying to remember where the concert was. I saw them in Chicago in 95 and in 99. I think both places were outdoor, but both times I had a reserved seat under the covered part.

Was that the Rosemont?

Radiohead opened for them in 99, but we missed them because my friend's brother and his wife were total slow-asses. But it was entirely worth it, because my friend got really awesome seats through the fan club. I think they were, like, 9th row? We were smack dab in the center, and everyone around us had paid through the nose for scalped tickets. We enjoyed the looks on their faces when we said we paid face value.

It was a really great show.

Did they make portable 8 track players?

Monster hasn't held up well for me, but damn, did I love that album when it came out. I think Let Me In and I Took Your Name are the two songs I still really love from that album.

I had to stop and think about when I saw them. Twice in '95, once in '99, once in '03 (I think? It was the tour after that hits album came out, and they were playing "Bad Day" and "Animal"), and then after Around the Sun. That was a smaller venue, and a really good show. It made me appreciate the songs on AtS a little more.

We agree. I really loved it when it came out. Now? Doesn't do all that much for me.

The Rosemont is an indoor arena, in the Northwest suburbs. The World Music Theatre is outdoor and partially covered, and it's in the south suburbs. I didn't realize they played both places on that tour?

People always compare the two so, for the record:

Strange Currencies > Everybody Hurts
