I honestly didn't notice people leaving during "My Valentine" at the show I went to. Or maybe it was just that nobody around me got up.
I've seen people around me sit down, not too many leave.
What I did notice was this: The couple next to me (this is 3rd row, center folks) decided to go t-shirt shopping (I overheard them discuss this) as soon as the rising stage started to elevate . . .they never came back . . .never . . .WHO does that???
The couple next to me last night at Tinley. From the VIP seats! Woman left just before Paul took the stage. Her male companion stayed seated the whole time she was gone, which was for several songs. When she returned, she sat down too. They had a conversation which lasted about one song, and then both of them got up and left, never to return! Several songs later, two young guys came with tickets in hand and took over their seats. I don't know if the original couple relocated, or just plain left, but at least they didn't let those seats go to waste. The two guys stood for the rest of the show and had a great time.
Wow! At least the seats were enjoyed by guys that had a great time. I will say that I had more room to jump around when the couple next to me left but still . . .I just couldn't believe it. I can't recall now if they had the swag bags from the VIP pkg. Maybe they got their tickets free somehow and didn't feel like they'd be out anything if they left . . .I've never even taken a bathroom break at a Paul show!
