I've seen it before - impressive, but I would still say that Copeland's setup is more impressive. He has a lot more variety of instruments, and two drum/percussion setups on different levels.

I didnt say he did? I said what I remember was how he attacked the drums, it stood out to me.

I didn't say you didn't say he did . I was mainly responding to "Stewart Copeland is not a drummer, he is a percussionist of great talent.". I didn't really get what that meant until I saw the performance videos, with the elaboarate setup. Lots of drummers attack the drums, but that setup and how he used it is what stood out for me.

True...Stew is a different kind of drummer. I can tell it's him when he plays.

For OC/SoCal fans

Seems like Honda Center (Arrowhead Pond) tix aren't selling too well, you can get Row L in 206 for $250/ea, I went with Row A in Sec 421 (behind stage, 3rd level but front row, and Pond behind stage tix are pretty close) for $50/ea

Buried in the Peart listing is the above credit. Humourous to those that have decent knowledge of the NHL and the Montreal Canadiens goaltenders.

The scalpers took a beating here

There were lots of tickets available and the $225 seats were selling outside for $50.

That may also say something about the band's overinflated view of themselves.

Those drum kits

At that point, could they even be called "kits"?

I guess the scalpers also overestimated demand - maybe it's mostly them who bought the expensive seats. It will vary by city, but it's good to know that.
