    Show is pretty awesome. Very cool experience seeing the band up on the big screen like that. I got there around 15 minutes before show time and they had a countdown on the screen and were playing LP music videos and promos for organizations like Power the World. At show time they played The Making of the Burn It Down music video, parts 1 and 2. Concert was cool, band was on fire, German fans kick ASS. They cut Runaway, POA, Catalyst, and Crawling from the show to fit it in the time frame.

    Had a lot of fun, turned out there were a decent amount of people at my theatre. We jammed out and sang along and everything. Great night.

    There wasn't any documentary footage from the LT exept Burn it Down making of 1&2. I was sad that they cut Runaway and Crawling but even though the Catalyst is my favorite song, I don't care to see it much live. Only about 10 other ppl showed up at my theater and none of them except my friend and I clapped after each preformed song. Also I think we were the only ones to sing along. It was still very enjoyable to hear it nice and loud on the big screen for my friend and I to sing along and head bang to.

    Got back from the Roseville showing.


    Liked the nifty countdown they had and the (theater sized!) music videos, which made me wonder what I missed if I had shown up earlier. Also there was like 10 people at my showing. No wonder my local theater didn't show it.

    My theater showed With You. I got a new appreciation for BID through theater sound systems. Awesome medly. Awesome Beastie Boys cover. Sad I didn't see The Catalyst........ Watching LPTV on a big screen made me kinda dizzy.

    Man my theater(AMC 16 Burbank, CA) completely fucked it up. They didn't show any of the making of stuff or other videos. They started the show 40 minutes early LOL. About 50 minutes in they realize that they started they show fucking early when half the people weren't even there yet, so they restart the entire show. I should have taken a piss then cause damn I was hurting during the 2nd replay. I think I was the only one singing along and banging my head. There was a decent amount of people though, around 30-40. Also they didn't even turn the lights on after the credits, had to use my phone flashlight to see.

    The only plus was they gave out a free movie ticket because they fucked up.

    Ok I was about to say, Really fun to watch because it was.

    Was it worth the price? No.
    Was it very fun? Yes.

    They showed making of BID video. Before theature event they showed catalyst video and power the world commercials. Showed BID video before concert. It was really amazing and fun to watch the band on big screen and they were nearly perfect! Best live band and I still stick to that (tied with Muse anyways!).

    But I was hoping for Runaway, and I was pretty sure they played it at the concert, and now I just found out we were robbed of: Runaway, Points of Authority, The Catalyst, and Crawling. This sucked. Why the frick does it only have to be 1:30? could they not making the special event go longer? why set restrictions? make it 2 hours, show those four songs, add something special at the end. CMON! I had a friend with me, who really wanted to see The Catalyst live and he was upset they didn't play it but it turns out they did, it was just cut from the set. And he's not even a big fan of ATS, and really wanted to see it. so stupid. /rant

    Anyways, there were only 4 people in our theature, but I expected low attendance because of the theature we chose to go too out of our options.

    EDIT: yes, I shouldn't complain but I really wanted to see Runaway!

    Yeah I was pretty pissed that they cut 4 songs too, seems very arbitrary as to why.

    Good show!
    Great crowd for this one too. MTM show was only about 14 people, this one had a good 40+ people. Only one other LPU member in attendance, pretty cool people. A few sang along through the show, front row guy sang his heart out and fist pumped. So happy to be the only one to sing along to LIES GREED MISERY and UNTIL IT BREAKS for WFTE. Brought my Living things album to see if anyone can chat about their thoughts on the album. Three anxiously wanted to see the album, a good time to talk about it. They kept true to waiting until tomorrow morning to listen to the album themselves. A few others heard the leak and had interesting opinions towards it.
    All in all, it was a great time & show. Knew the setlist ahead of time, knew about when the songs were cut but didn't want to let the people around know about it.

    What I did find amazing though was how CRAZY different a full theatre set makes BURN IT DOWN sound so good with such speaker display. You can hear every element to the song. I want that setup so badly to hear the entire album to.

    I went to the showing in Anchorage, Alaska. Maybe 12 people or so. Everyone was reserved at first but started clapping and singing along as the show went on. Bummed to see a few songs cut but all in all it was pretty cool. Awesome to see Blackout in such high quality. I'm surprised at how well that song translates live.

    I had fun. I just wish they had given us like a poster or something, but oh well. I went to the one in Mesa, AZ. About 15 people? Had fun with my friend and the guy next to me. We all got into and sang and rocked out haha.

    Anyone know why they cut out 4 tracks? -__- especially "The Catalyst" :X
