    I was on Jonny's side, right on the end of the row. I was on row J but that turned out to be row 2. The steps to leave the stage and go to the C stage were right in front of me. After Viva, they started putting up the security tape. Jackie, Kelly and Franksie were all threre. Lost ended and when they came down the steps, Jonny was first and I screamed his name and he came over and high fived me. Chrissy ran past too quick to see my cape. But Franksie was there and he gave me a thumbs up. [thanks TheAngie]


    The PIT was incredible! It was large but you were free to move around all over it so I was able to be right next to the little catwalks, right next to the rail when they ran to the B-Stage (which was weird since I was literally the ONLY person on the rail and felt kind of stupid! HA! But I got some GREAT video. I almost got a high five from Will, but he just waved instead Oh well I was happy for the wave! Also, at one point on the catwalk, Chris looked right at me and pulled a funny face when I was taking a picture - of course it came out blurry because that man cannot keep still but it was great! I think he probably thought it was funny there was only a few people on that end, ha!! But at least both Will and Chris saw me, so that was really great! They CHANGED THE SETLIST and played TROUBLE!!!! It was sooooo great. Unfortunately, the stupid security guard stopped me from recording video once they got to the B-Stage... one of the problems of being in the fairly empty side of the PIT. I did get some video of trouble though - I acted like I was taking a picture. Chris also threw a bunch of glo-sticks into the audience, I didn't get one unfortunately, but got video of it! I also wasn't able to get a set list. I ALMOST DID, but I let the girl next to me get it since she had already been there asking for it. SO CLOSE THOUGH. I tried to get another, but security ushered me away... the guy said "If he can't get it to you by the time you walk to that gate, tough luck" UGH. Oh, I almost forgot, someone in the pit gave Chris a cowboy hat for Guy to wear, and he put it on Guy as they walked off, it was really funny. I got some pics of it [thanks mrman78]


    ha mrman78, I was right next too you tonight... I thought I recognized you from the pic from your avatar but didnt wanna say anything incase it wasnt you from here, I was the big guy in the grey tshirt, white dallas cowboys hat with the big blue D on it and the black sunglasses hanging from my shirt. Dead center all the way in the back of the PIT, I was sitting before the show. Anyways, this is the first concert ive ever been too and it was mindblowing to say the least. I never thought in a million years i'd get to see my favorite band so up close like that, amazing show. [thanks gsmith1236]
