Just curious what anyone in my situation thought of this:
I was a big Ben Folds fan when I was younger. I love piano and I always loved how he did it. So, this being my first chance to see him live, I was definitely going to for at least a little whie, even though STS9 was one of my most anticipated shows of the weekend.
So, it really annoyed me at the beginning of the show when they messed around on stage for a good 20 minutes before playing. What the hell was that. He gets on, does a 5 minute soundcheck, then gets off, some british guy gets on and plays for 10 seconds. They repeat this. Then ben folds gets on drums, plays for 10 seconds. Then the british guy gets on the piano again. then nothing. and on and on. We finally just got really pissed and headed over to STS9.
It was funny for the first 5 minutes, but then it just seemed really obnoxious. I know the people who were around me agreed. Anyone have thoughts? Anyone agree? Anyone think I'm an idiot? Just curious...
