NIN show #940
|NIN_vinyl||Another amazing show at this venue. Certainly one of my more memorable shows. I had been to the Pavillon during the summer ‘06 tour and knew that the pit was very small, most people don’t realize there even is one and I think some bands will deck over it and use it for additional stage.|
When I got my tickets I was floored. ROW 1 seats 24-27, dead center is between 29 and 30. Just about as... ood as it gets.
I tried to keep this tidbit of info from my concert buddy and our wives, I thought it’d be cool to just walk in like we owned the place. By the time we got in, Soundgarden had already started and I just started waking closer, closer, closer. At this point it may be good to know that in a couple instances I’ve found ways to artificially enhance the quality of my seats notably the last time we were at this venue when I might have weaseled my way several rows down and hurdled a rail to get to the standing pit. So naturally you can understand if my group started questioning if I was leading them to a legit location or setting us all up for some potentially embarrassing rejection. I had a giant S-eating grin when we finally got there.
Splitting time with SG meant a pretty short set list, but the energy was great and because TR stood a little left of center in those days we literally had the best seats in the house. I got my first listen to The Great Destroyer live, it was everything I was hoping it’d be and Eraser was great. At the end of the night we wound up with 2 set lists and a pair of picks.
