    I'll be at the first two shows!! Good seats for Auburn July 5th, dead center in the seating area. But really GREAT seats for Ridgefield July 7th, 10 rows from the stage right in front of Ed!

    From all accounts, they put on a really good show. I'm proud of the boys.

    I do love the set list. Actually, made a playlist from their set list.

    Good Stuff!

    Have fun at Ridgefield, JD.

    Thanks, punk! Ridgefield was terrific. We were eight rows back from the stage on Ed's side. The first 7-8 songs were simply incredible. I've seen VH 13 times now, and I don't think I've ever personally seen them play technically better than they did the first third of this concert. Dave struggled for a couple songs midway through, but recovered nicely and finished strong.

    I'm pretty sure Dave and Ed got pretty baked from the secondhand smoke. It was pretty bad, and at one point Ed commented on it that he was getting high.

    All in all, both shows were freaking amazing, and I'd give the nod to Ridgefield. Wish I had more shows I could see on this tour. Ticket sales might be a bit soft, but judging from all the photos, YT clips, and my own eyes at my two shows, these concerts are well attended and fans are giving the band and the deep cuts a lot of love. The band is still going to make some good coin on this tour.
