I dont know why so many people are talking about the crowd from this show.Its about the MUSIC.I dont compare NJ to NYC.MSG is always louder.More hardcore fans,from NYC and the world.I sat in non 10c seats,sec 344 for MSG 1.Met 2 great fans from Australia.Was MSG 1 a better show??..Yes.The audience at MSG 1 were nuts.I was more fired up in my city.I live in Manhattan.Its a more intense place,everybody went wild at MSG 1.That being said,the audience in Newark were good,not great.I know EV metioned it(being kinda quiet),I was in section D(10C seats) and everybody was having a great time and singing.Maybe since I had 10c seats, I was around alot of great 10c fans.The band were fantastic and played quite a few rare songs this night.More so than MSG 1.Opening with Of The Girl then into Brain of J(
),In Hiding,Glorified G,Lukin,Once,Whipping (
a personal fav of mine), was the best song of the night.The crowd sang word for word for that one(at least in my section).Indifference and then Watchtower closed the show.They also played some of my favorites from this past decade,Inside Job (Mike with the double neck guitar !!!!),You Are,Life Wasted and Supersonic ,off the new cd,sounded great.They dont play that punk rock tune often for some reason.Again,I know the crowd were a bit low key.I have to say,there was alot of pot in the air.More so than in past PJ shows.Maybe 75% of the Rock were stoned?I feel the bands performance this night was top.I loved the show.Im glad the show happened,as EV said,"..this show almost didnt happen.Im glad we are here." Agreed.
