top 10 complaints

1- the night they are playing my town, "The OC" is on!
WTF- i can't spend money to buy TIVO, because i had to spend
$40 on the fan club.
2-this opening band sucks! could'nt they have gotten William Hung.
3- how come the Tshirts are onlt available in black, this is unfair
to people that are prone to dandruff.
4-my town is the center of the universe, (sorry Flint Michigan),
how come i only have one show.
5-i am only 5"2 using stillts, how am i going to see anything.
6-i spent this much money for tickets and they won't let me
smoke a blunt at the show. Phish tickets were much cheaper
and i was never hassled.
7-the lines for the bathroom are too long!! again if i was at a
Phish concert, it's one big pee party.
8-how am i supposed to help Bono solve world poverty when
beers cost $8.
9- i will stop, i think my point has been made. some of you
people have a warped sense of self entitlement.

Re: top 10 complaints

Thank you for making me laugh. I was going to highlight my personal favorites but there all so good.

I guess the ones that made me laugh out loud were, sorry they're all fantastic:

No Texas dates...dallas, houston, austin/san antonio, and el paso are given the shaft!!!
WOW surprising and there are only 13 cities they are visiting? I'm sorry to say this but I have a feeling this tour will probably be very poor. No time to build up a good set until they hit Europe. The rumour is true and well as selfish as I feel right now I hope whatever illness there is, I'm praying for them.

Artdirector's post is the funniest on this thread.

You know friends U2 is not giving anyone the shaft on this tour. Texas, Georgia and Florida will all be represented in the late Summer/Fall tour. I guarantee it.

actually Hung is a great choice, maybe he could be the pre-opening act, while we're all sitting outside for hours on the pavement, he could play the parking lot.

Here's another complaint: It's so hard going to TM's site, it takes so long for the pages to load, and I have to refresh them all the time, and it's boring.
