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.
