Early morning of the day after the RCMH 2nd night, we got ride an express bus to go to Montreal, via Albany, Springfield etc. After 8 hours, we got to cool Montreal and spend this night and a half day of 21st for sightseeing. Oh, at near the Ritz Carlton Hotel, we met two guys, the one came from Texas and the other came from Chicago. Wow.
At 17:30. I went to a bar at near Bell Centre to meet some DC hub members and got meet Kam and Peter and Nadine ! Very
nice to meet you buddies !
At 19:20, we moved and enter the venue, with no security check :-D After played King Crimson (21st Century Schizoid Man) and TOOL tunes, the show got started.... but almost I could not listen to R30 Overture because the crowd noise was soooooo loud !! Wow, what a hot audience !
Our seats are Floor 7th row, very left side. But the floor width of Bell Centre is just the same size of the stage, the view was great. So I had took about a pic per a song but... a security guy came to our seats and said "No more picture". Although there were so many crowd who took pics with flash, seems our seats were sooo easy to access for them. So I could get only a dozen pics. I used some of good shots for the "Part 3" artworks.
The arena sound was not excellent like I experienced in 2002 show. But this time our seats were much closer than 2002, the sound quality is better than Horizon to Horizon Part 1. Slightly distant and muffled, and only a bit distorted when the band volume reached maximum (i.e. 2112 Overture), but not bad I believe.
Boys played nearly perfect. Oh, except for the end of La Villa, though. The audience is really crazy, boys made hottest show. PA sound was not so excellent but this is THE best show for the last four shows for me. Oh, at the intro of 2112, to charge a coin to the stopped dryers, trailer park boys actors came to the stage instead of tour crew ! After restarted the dryers, they involved with each boys. it was very funny time.
Right after the end of Limelight, we had to leave there ASAP because had to catch an express bus to Toronto which departure at 24:15, less than an hour after the show ! Got out the arena, and looking for the valid entrance of Subway
station. two of them are closed like 2002... but fortunately we could find other entrance for Bonaventure station this time and went to hotel to pick up our luggages and then arrived at bus centre at 24:00. phew. When we were on the waiting line, met a guy who wore PeW world tour T-shirt. He is from UK. wow. He went to this city at 18:00 p.m. and would leave by the same bus at 24:15... only 6 hours stay ! Harder schedule than ours !! Great.? By the 8 hours ride, got to TO again. (2004-08-30)
