That's right up there with the people who say Gorge is the best venue because of the view or SPAC is awesome because the walk through the park is nice beautiful.

I know you are not going to that extreme here but it's still funny

You can see the Ben Franklin Bridge from the Camden lawn! And the roof of the famous aquarium, too!

Northerly Island is a travesty of a venue. And that it (along with Wrigley) is actively taking shows away from Alpine is even more infuriating.

The venue is atrocious. Sightlines are awful, the sound is garbage, the lawn has virtually no incline, the bathrooms/concessions are all temporary/cheap structures. It epitomizes everything that's wrong with live music these days - cramming as many people as possible into shitty places that aren't designed for music (basically every music festival).

The land itself (Northerly Island is actually a peninsula) just overhauled 40-acres of parkland and a 5-acre lagoon, making the venue even more of an eye sore. There are renderings for a new music venue on that site, but it's been a few years since they were released and I'm beginning to think it's not happening. And, in fairness, the new design looks like a mess too.

Hey! This has already been addressed here by others. No dancing! You will sit quietly in your seat throughout the performance!

I'm not defending it at all. Also the walk to SPAC is nice until you get to the people pissing in the river.

Come to think of it, crowds are like d&t

Actually, remember when people used to scream all the time for Tim to talk? "FAHKIN SAY SOMETHING TIMMY!!!!!!!!!!" And Dave would always be like, "He talks to me everyday." NO ONE CARES THAT TIMMY DOESN'T TALK ANYMORE. WE'VE LOST OUR WAY AS FANS.

I like listening to those early shows where the band banters among each other and the audience. Good stuff.

Would be a fun catch-off-guard moment to have jeff or boyd step up and say thanks or carter even. But that would lead to a Ross crowd-address, and I dont wanna hear from that guy.

"Guys I'm so tired #3moreshows"

The real question would be. Would he use the fake accent or not?

I can't believe someone actually would complain about living that amazingly luxurious lifestyle. Dude is really taking it for granted. I would love to ride big tour busses, bang hot girls and make millions of dollars to literally squeal and play high notes over most of the same songs for literally 3-4 months out of the year. He really needs to go.

And that's because his voice would clear half the amphitheater out.

But you'd have to run to the bus!
