No opening act, shows have been starting between 8:10 and 8:30. Legend has it that Bruce was booed off the stage once when he was an opening act for someone else before he even started to play so he doesn't want that to happen to another band.

makes sense... i always wondered why bruce never had an opener. i always thought it was because he wanted as much time as possible and didn't want to have to worry about the curfews that most major venues have in place.

Never heard about that, but there have been instances where Bruce opened for someone and stole the show, thus rendering the main act meaningless. There is the infamous gig where he opened for Anne Murray, of all people, and the time he opened for Chicago on a very small tour of theirs. Supposedly, the first night Chicago let him use their video screens, and he brought the house down. Needless to say, after that, they didn't let him use them again.

I don't know who the main act was at that gig but supposedly the crowd started booing as soon as Bruce came out and never gave him a chance, he just walked off and left. IIRC, I think at the Detroit VFC show where BrightEyes and REM played before Bruce, he came out and told the crowd "No Brucing" before Bright Eyes took the stage....and we all know how some people that don't understanding the "Brucing" think the crowd is booing

What's the camera policy for his shows? I know that Ticketbastard says No Cameras, but you know how that goes, all depends on the artist.

I don't think Bruce is too keen on cameras. When I had GA in '02 I didn't see any, and even as recently as last summer I got bitched out by security for taking a picture of the stage a full half hour before the show from my third row seat.

Good thing I can smuggle in my bra I suppose I'll just try to be sneaky about it.

I can take decent shots with my camera phone. I figure that'll suffice since I won't really feel like getting kicked out of my spot on the floor.
