I was so glad they didn't play that song, just to prove everyone that was so certain he would wrong

I no, rite?

That's the moment in the Seattle show where I started being sufficiently blown away.

Why there were so many pre-teens and younger dressed like hookers at tonight's show, I will probably never understand, but there were also about six or seven of them in seats as well.
Seems like these kids made an impression on a lot of people. I feel sorry for them. I can only imagine what their parents are like.

I didn't realize you felt sick. Was it your eye?

From that thread:

My friend and I were there last night, on the rail in front of Steve, and I was duped by one of the parents who were p$mping the girls into stepping away from the rail for a moment when the father was pretending to ask me a question. All of the sudden the pimp mother told the youngins to grab the railing and they swarmed in front of me and stole my spot. When I realized what happened I tried to reclaim my rail spot but the p$mp parents starting picking a fight, telling my friend to keep his hands off his kids or he'd be sorry. (For he record, he was saying, in a sharp tone of voice, "no sweethearts, we all waited in the same line this is our spot" he wasn't touching them). The mothers were then trying to slip the pit wristbands off the tiniest girls and were going to go back behind the barrier to try to slip them on the other girls who didn't get in. I don't think that worked though because I saw the heated discussion between fans, security, the other girls, and their "mother" at the front of the back pit as she was trying to get them closer.

Holy shit, what a bunch of assholes.

Like I said. They were assholes like you said. But they made Bruce laugh, and he had a good time, so I guess that's what's important?

I'm just looking for the silver lining here.

and Rose, I'll send you a PM

also, the one picture I took, because 1) I was afraid of losing my cell phone, and 2) I didn't want to make Gary the security Guard made at me Rose knows what I'm talking about



I feel the need to photoshop this with arrows explaining what blur in that photo is what. Pretty much I took it just to prove how close he was XD.

I liked the pic of the 8" heals in that thread ramblinrose

But that truly sucks. Too bad there isn't a parent police, and rehab for these little monsters. WTF?

That is the weirdest thing about those kids. I've never heard of something like that happening with such a large group of kids before

Glad you still had a great time bono_212. That's awesome that you go so close to Clarence

Well yeah, that's good. I like a happy Bruce.

But I think it's more "important" (for lack of a better word - in the grand scheme of things, of course this isn't "important") is that their behavior negatively affected others' experience of the concert.

Honestly, if I had been there in the thick of the swarm of prostitots, I would have been seriously pissed off and, depending on how brave I was feeling, would have given any and all of those parents a piece of my mind. Loudly.

(Then again, I might have just sat there and passive-aggressively seethed. )

But seriously, it's awesome you had a great time.

You might have gotten away with it if you were wearing a different shirt.
