From the Sovereign Bank Arena site:

Sick Puppies Just Added!
Even if you don’t know Sydney, Australia's modern rock trio Sick Puppies, you’ve probably seen their groundbreaking “Free Hugs,” video, which has garnered more than 11 million views on YouTube since it started streaming on the site last year. The band’s North American debut, Dressed Up As Life, was released in April of 2007. “The songs are a combination of all of our influences, from Rage Against the Machine to Green day, mixed in with our own style,” says bassist Emma Anzai.

Anyone else notice that the seating arrangement for this show has been downsized into half-arena set up?  That sucks.. hope it is selling decent enough.

I saw that Shaggy. I'm guess with the holidays plus they were around quite the tri state area alot this summer it might be a hard ticket to sell. Not to us die hard fans of course, but the general concert goer.

Going to try to figure a place to go before Sat show sometime this week. Have to give a call around.

I think I'm in section 4. Is this seats or standing room with sections divided by guard rails?

Casper..I am fairly certain that it will be seated.  As I think the tickets would've suggested SRO or GA for each section.  However, they list specific seats.  I am in ROW 3, SECTION 1..so hopefully it isn't GA cause I want to chillax before the show without worryin about a good spot.

Anyone know who the opening act is and what time VR goes on?

Opening band is Sick Puppies.  Doors open at 7:30.  Figure the Puppies play 45 minutes.  VR comes at 9:30 I would imagine.

So I took a short trip over to the venue today to check it out and see where I'd be parking. In true Trenton fashion, it's basically next door to a jail. Adds that extra element of danger, I'll say. ;-)

It should be okay... Remember, criminals try to stay away from jail! ;)

****I have an extra ticket for the show tonight. It is a single in the 7th row seat 1. $30 bucks will take it.  Anyone interested pm me and I'll meet you tonight.  You would have to be there early since I am doing the M&G and have to be there by 6. I'll be checking back around 3 so leave me a cell phone number with your pm so I can get hold of you.

Just back from Trenton. Will write more tomorrow after some rest. But the short version is:
Crowd was tiny.
Sound and lighting sucked
Scott seemed off a bit-didn't seem to have the range tonight on the high end amd missed his cue a few times.
Scott not as active. Sang his heart out though. May have had a cold (me just guessing) Fully clothed the entire show (that could be the tip off)
Played American Man. Mr Brownstone back in.
Set Me Free without the solos in the middle.

Good night.

All in all, I had a blast...  Seeing Slash up close & in person made it worth it regardless of anything else.  Scott looked, well, worn.  But as mentioned above, gave it his all and hung in there.  Took a bunch of cell phone shots, the best ones posted on Flickr (see above)...enjoy!
