Got an email today from TheMusic.com telling me my credit card was charged and that my order will be shipping asap. I ordered the Montreal show which was the second show of the tour. Can't wait to hear that concert again!

Wow, that's great to hear.
I attended the October 14 show in Fairfax, VA so I guess I gotta wait awhile before my show arrives in the mail.

I got e-mails too! One from the music.com saying my card was charged, and the CD would ship soon. Another from Real World saying the same thing...for the Hollywood Bowl show. Fun! Something to look forward to...

Thanks for the shipping date information.
And it's cool about adding bonus material to the usb flash drives.
I ordered the Las Vegas show just for the Humdrum performance.

Got my copy of the Quebec show (I was there). Sound quality is terrific and they even include the intro's at the beginning of each CD (PG's intro to the show and also the intro the So set). Very well done.

Can't wait to see if they leave in the f-bomb that Peter dropped during the show at Red Rocks. I hope so. Never heard so many people laughing at the same time.

They left it in for the Quebec show...after the failed attempt of the Tower...

You mentioned your Quebec CD has arrived. Just wondering where you're located as I haven't received the Montreal CD yet (I'm in Montreal).
JCBH10 November 2012 at 12:20amPosts: 30 (0 today)Status: offline
I live in LA, where they are shipped from, so yours should be there soon! I got mine on Monday, after it shipped on Friday (via snail mail).

LA to Quebec, long haul to see a show!
JCBH11 November 2012 at 3:39amPosts: 30 (0 today)Status: offline
Yeah - we are friends with some of the PG band, so my wife and I made a little trip of it, and saw the shows in Quebec and Montreal, as well as a full run-through dress rehearsal in Quebec before the tour started. So fun.
pete6611 November 2012 at 3:52amPosts: 17 (0 today)Status: offline
Very cool, lucky you! My wife & I loved the Montreal show. PG is very big here, always has been, all the way back to his Genesis days. I'm curious, how did the two shows compare, from an insider's POV?
JCBH11 November 2012 at 4:01amPosts: 30 (0 today)Status: offline
The shows kept getting better and better, musically, etc...we also saw Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, and the shows just got better and better...the music was better and smoother, and everyone was more comfortable. Like any tour, it just kept getting better and better. Of the two, I liked Montreal better than Quebec, as there were no technical snafu's but I did like that the Tower was in the set earlier on the Quebec setlist, and since there were technical problems, PG moved it to the encore, which actually in my opinion worked better. He agreed, obviously, as he left it that way for the rest of the tour! Very neat to see how this stuff works itself out.

Going to post here too, sort of a repeat as no one responded on the other thread. I see JCBH saw the LA show like I did. Anyway I ordered the LA cd's and had them shipped to a friend first who could not make it. They said he told the crowd to F off about the house lights. I see mention here of that at red rocks and maybe Quebec, but don't remember that in LA at all, did I get the wrong 1st CD shipped to me? The second CD has the John Cusack stuff so that is the correct 2nd CD for sure. Thanks
JCBH13 November 2012 at 3:17amPosts: 30 (0 today)Status: offline
I don't remember that either...wonder when that was? I should have my USB drives in the next week or so and will listen for it...hopefully no more delays on the USB drives.

I just received all three (3) CDs that I had ordered -- PA-VA-LA. I see it mentioned here that PG dropped the f-bomb in Red Rocks. I know he did in Philly -- in a nice way, he said, "that was our first fuck-up of the night" (or something similar) -- I'll have to listen to them and hear it again. I ordered LA but was not at the show, so I'd be curious to whether or not PG said f-bomb there also.
Can't wait to hear them all!

Anyone in the UK got theres yet? The San Diego show was shipped on the 2nd November (supposedly, according to themusic.com website). So tomorrow will have been two weeks exactly... eagerly anticipating this and I'm a little sad everytime I come home and it isn't here
