I'm going to head over around 4pm. Looking forward to meeting some of you!
Well you might as well tell us who they were then!

Really?? Aw that's a shame. I was really hoping it'd be Fallon! I wonder if they'll go back to bringing fans on stage then? That would still be great :)

I look forward to meeting some people from here as well, it'll be a great night. Just landed in Newark, NJ, on my way to Penn Station. Gonna grab some food in Manhattan, piddle around a bit, and then meet at 4 for the sound check. I'll let you guys know if there's anything interesting from it! So excited.

Good sign then! Just got checked into the hotel, currently eating at a deli. Might swing by here in a bit to check the line out/talk to some people before sound check :)

I know 6 of them :lol: sadly I'm not one of them. I wonder if they all got numbered again, not sure whether people from NYC understand that rule :P

I'm officially bailing on the idea of lining up early and am headed to the Blarney Stone at 6pm for the Blur Superfan meetup. I figure I'll just get shoved aside anyway as soon as the band starts playing when everyone rushes the stage. Party in the back!

Just got to my hotel in NYC. I'm not rushing off to queue early. Going to take a stroll, have some dinner and turn up when I turn up. I have no stamina to stand in line for ages lol. Good on you those that do though! :D

I'm at my hotel now, and I'm worn out! New York is exhausting. I'm going to have to recuperate a bit before lining up.

I didn't get on my phone at all during the sound check, didn't want them to think I was trying to record or take a pic :P it was great! Damon was hilarious. While we were there they did The Universal (they have the same string section that Damon had on his solo American tour and they sound fantastic!), To The End, Trimm Trabb (partly), Country Sad (twice!), Ghost Ship, End of a Century, and part of Badhead. Nothing new really, but that's what they played. Still a very fun time! Now in line again :D
