>I thought maybe when I saw pictures of the show, it might spark some of
the passion I might have forgotten.  No, not really.

>Things have changed for me with the Who. Yeah, being closer would have been
way cooler.  But, the fact of the matter is, I think my priorities have
changed.  I left the show feeling empty and disappointed.

The Oz fans got something really special this time around, that is: a meet 
and greet with Roger and Pete.  Others got their autograph and a short 
conversation with only an iron grille between.  The size and intensity of 
the audience in the USA not only prevents this, but makes it hard to even 
get a seat in the front few rows.  In case you don't know, the center front 
seats at HB have gone for $2500 each in past years.  That's a rich crowd in 
Hollywood, so $200 only gets you a sucky seat.

BTW, this is why Alan was hoping they would change the name of the band just 
a few posts back.  He thinks that way he can avoid the expensive and 
stressful competition for close seats.   ;)

You have my sympathy, Jo.  I was a the HB show last tour in a seat pretty 
far back, and I know the music doesn't have quite the same magic that far 
back.  However, it's still a good experience to find people you know and 
make some new Whofan friends.  Glad to hear the Wholala was such a success.
