BarbB:It is rather disappointing when you also have a "sign my __" sign and Paul chooses someone else or doesn't do it. I tried in Nashville and Paul saw it but chose Sarah (I AM TOTALLY HAPPY FOR YOU). I thought for sure he would in Charlotte but he didn't do anything but wave, and then you hear how he's signed a person at every show with the same sign since then. Heartbreaking, really.

this is what I do not like about the whole thing. it raises peoples' expectations and they probably spend the entire show thinking/worrying/hoping he will sign their sign and choose them. it becomes a distraction that I assume takes away from the show a bit. I know people want contact with Paul but they shouldn't go to a show pinning everything on whether he is going to sign their arm or their album. it makes me sad. It also puts pressure on Paul to do it every time, like he almost feels obligated to do it as a "routine" part of the show.

walliebaby:Plus, he doesn't have time to scan the crowd constantly and keep playing, singing, and bouncing around.

Actually he does spends the whole show watching the crowd. He sees most of what goes on down front. But agree with what you said that the larger the signs, the easier it will be for him to notice them. The problem with that is when the people holding them forget that they are not the only ones in the venue. A little girl had a huge "can I have a hug" sign in front of me on Sunday night and her parents kept holding it up throughout the show. Paul probably saw it 50 times. I actually had to watch the two tattoo girls on the video screens because they held it up the entire time he was signing for them, and it completely blocked my view of the stage. I guess they were hoping maybe their little girl would be next up. That is the kind of stuff that drives me crazy about the signs and the rest of it, that people can't just put them down and enjoy the show. :

MaccaDelinquent - excellent post and well-said.

Audrey - good to hear from you on this subject; you are the original, as has been pointed out.

DrivinFan:Even the "veteran" soundcheckers were impressed with yesterdays set list.

"Suicide", which Shelly mentioned as the first time she heard it played at a soundcheck, was actually a "shout out" from one of the fans attending!
Sounded great!

Yes it did! I saw that gentleman later at the show and I probably thanked him about 10 times for requesting it.

and congrats to you and your son, by the way!

maccascruff:I've only seen four shows on this tour and only at Nashville was there a tattoo, so that generalization is also wrong.

I believe there has been a tattoo at every show *since* Nashville, however...

There wasn't one in Charlotte (which was the show after Nashville) as far as I'm aware. But - BarbB can confirm that..

There has been at least one every other show, though.

that's right, I forgot about Charlotte (sorry Charlott-i-ans! )

BarbB:I was jking..

I wonder if you just had a sign that said.."Please sign me!"..and you get up there, and he's like, where do you want it, if you actually pointed to your chest or butt, if he would refuse it with all those people watching and cheering him on..

He probably would refuse, he'd make a joke about it, and he'd just sign an arm instead. Or he just would not pick that person to begin with...

Capacity is 350

I'd give my arm to be there. Stupid bills.

It's a CLUB, people.

Stupid job. crap crap crap crap....

oh and btw, Ticketmaster says 2 ticket limit and this is a paperless show. So there won't be any actual tickets - purchaser has to show up with ID/credit card - so if someone buys a ticket for you, you are gonna have to find them to get into the show. Good luck all!

eMike:Although it doesn't have brickwork or arches of The Cavern, it is a basement club and - what with the lunchtime start, it could have a whiff of Beatlemania about it!

Sell your Granny to get in

Exactly. When I saw "100 Club" in the thread title, I nearly knocked over my computer. Anyone who gets a ticket to this is a lucky sod indeed.

congrats to all who got tix! I am insanely jealous, seeing Paul in a club like that is my dream gig. so at the moment, I shall have to make do with my fond memories of seeing him at the Edinburgh Odeon on this date back in 1979.

As for the touts having tickets, I'd beware - they don't have the tickets in hand of course since it's paperless. I have heard stories of some US touts doing some fake credit card/ID stuff to get around the paperless thing and sell both tix so that they don't "waste" one on themselves...
