Fan Recaps and Comments:
Another great show! Every child got a TMBG foam finger upon entering the theatre. John and John opened with a comment how 3 pm is very early for them and that they were extremely tired so Bed, Bed, Bed was an appropriate first song to play. Marty's use of mechanical sound effects was cool for the kids to see. The crowd was encouraged to stand up at various times and Clap Your Hands got the entire audience into the show right away. Kids Go followed to keep the dancing going. Flansy said the Capitol Theatre was so much nicer than their usual venue (It is an impressive theatre) and that got a big laugh from those of us who see the band in their usual digs.
The crowd got a big kick out of the confetti cannon (3 times!). Kids were picking up the colorful paper to collect the biggest pile they could.
The Avatars of They were a fun way for the band to interact with the kids. During "What is a Shooting Star?" the lights went down and they used a disco ball to create a space effect. Flansy asked who could count to nine and most of the audience raised their hands. We shouted 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9! along with John and John during "Pirate Girls Nine."
Near the end of the show Flansy incredulously mentioned that there was a guy in the third balcony wearing a t-shirt from 1989. (My brother, John! Although some other guy waved as if his 2001 tee was what he was talking about).
Afterward, John F. and Marty handed out TMBG bumper stickers to everyone that wanted one. Very cool!
This show marked my 25th Giants show and I couldn't have asked for a better one to share with my wife and kids, brothers, sister-in-law and nephews.
