Awesome that you won the tickets! I wish I knew about the contest earlier. Is that the only way to get into the soundcheck?

I'll mention the forum to tweedz if I get a chance, I'll see what he thinks about all of our fantasy setlists :mrgreen: (and apologize for the moans :lol:)

If I was to request a rarity to be played, I'd ask for Swallows in the Heatwave. I could help Damon remember the lyrics :P

I joined that event on FB but I might stand in line instead. Someone throw out some times you plan on lining up, I don't want to be a dork and be the only one there super early. Also, I plan on not drinking any liquid so I won't have to make bathroom trips during the show and lose my spot, so I'll probably die of dehydration before the show even starts.

Ill be there with you. I want to get there early but I don't know what time is too early. I was planning on 10am. Too early? Late? Where do we even go to line up?

Some press on the show. The headline for the first article is ridiculous though. "Blur are ready to take over America—for the first time ever"

I was gonna head over to MSG around 5 to check things out...I think anything before that probably qualifies as dorky

I've talked to a few people who are getting there pretty early. One person said that they'd be there no later than 12 pm. I say stand as long as you feel like/can handle :P

Also, I just posted about this over in the Buy Sell Swap, but I figure I'll post it here as well.

If anyone has been on the fence about seeing blur tomorrow, this may interest you. Someone on the blur subreddit has two tickets that he is wanting to give away for free. He wants them to go to some good fans, so if you're interested go over to reddit and PM him! https://www.reddit.com/r/blur/comments/ ... _tomorrow/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (you'll have to have an account first, of course. And while you're at it, you ought to subscribe to /r/blur, especially since I'm the moderator ;) )

it's probably quite unlikely but does anyone know of a possible livestream for this show?

I don't think there's a special guest for the show tonight. The person they had lined up just had to bail. Oh well!

I'm going to head over around 4pm. Looking forward to meeting some of you!
