i'll be looking for your review!

Unless it's storming I plan to stand outside Forest Hills Stadium May 30, unless the entry point is further away from the actual stadium to be able to hear

FH is where they played Who's Next!

There was a mess up with meeting some friends... and it was such a beautiful day/eve I decided TO go to after all.
No time to post details but will later in the week.

Will just say they sounded great!

Got an email today that our Oct. 21st Toronto show is delayed till early December. The Oct 19th show is still on, though. Roger has been told by doctors to space out shows to protect his voice. I didn't realize till a few months ago that he has had surgery to have pre-cancerous growths removed from his vocal cords. The past few tours I've seen them, he might have missed the odd high note or two, but overall, I was impressed. Those vocal cords have a lot of mileage on them. Hope he can hold out for the rest of the dates. Now I'm super tempted to grab tickets for Oct. 19th, too.

From April of this year. This is nuts. No wonder the man has to space out shows.

thanks VP

Yeah.. really!!!
I was SO impressed at how he sounded!

I had to go about 10 subway stations deeper into Queens from were I had been and about half way from sorth to south by bus to the stadium.
Then I walked another 5 blocks to get near it. As I got off the bus with in a minute crossing the street and heading on I started to hear them! It was not so clear at first but interestingly as I passed a series of U-Shaped Apt complexes when ever I passed the "well" Entrance of each of these the sound spilled down into ti and became clear.
The closer i got it got clearer in general.

WHat the fabulous surprise was there was a little Vest Packet park in front of one the buildings and was able to sit for the 2nd-half of the show!

SO got to hear...


 
As I approached- Bargain, then in the little park YBYBYB, Join Together, Eminence Front, Amazing Journey/Spaarks, Love O'er Me, Baba O'Riely, WGFA.

Roger was great and amazing on Love Reign O'er Me. Most of theae songs I was hoping to hear - so Wow!!! The band sounded great!


I'm REALLY Glad I went after all!
