We then walked over and hung out in the room where the VIP stuff was held, said a quick hello with Mia, then sat down. Our seats were really good, sixth row off on Steve's side. Inside, the theater was pretty cool. It was clearly an older theater because it looked old and felt old, but it was also very modern. There were lights and video projectors in the dome on the ceiling and lights in the wells over the stairs and projectors that projected onto the side walls. It really gave the show a whole new look and feel. And as such, I got to see some stuff I had never seen before. Jay Levey, Suzanne, and Nina were all in the audience. Before the show, Nina was brought backstage for a few minutes, then returned to her seat.
Overall one of the better shows I've seen this tour. For "Tacky" he started outside, walked up to a car on the street, and then came inside, taunted a few security guards, then into the theater through appropriately enough "Exit 27". The tool belt was back for "Handy". During WBUL, Al licked Suzanne. The stormtroopers were extremely hilarious during TSB.
We took pictures by the "Exit 27" sign, then hung out by the buses with remmy and her mom and came up with more totally awesome ideas for future shows, the only one which I can remember at the moment involves Abraham Lincoln. Jim walked by shortly after carrying his guitar and said hello to me then got on the bus. Bermuda was with him and stopped to chat for a while. He teased us some more about the upcoming big huge awesome release coming this Christmas . Sounds like they are in the picture gathering phase of the project. He then gave us a spoiler that Friday's show will be slightly different from all the others.
- At the beginning of the show, Al will say "Hello Philadelphia" and at the end of the show, he will say "Thank you Philadelphia, I love you all, goodnight!"
Al came out with Suzanne and Nina at his side, waved to all the fans that were still waiting, and then got on the bus, which left immediately. JW apologized to all the fans waiting and said no autographs today as Al had family in town.
