Detroit has always been very Goo friendly.

 
 CheesyAnd this is why I'd rather see a concert there, in Detroit, rather in my own country of Canada....and it's also closer than T.O by a longshot...
 
Not dissing my country either, I love Canada.

These posts made me laugh for so many different reasons.  I am showing my age here but long, long ago on a not so distant planet, NO ONE stood up at a concert.  Shocked  In fact, if you stood, security would come over and give you one warning to sit down.  The second time, you were escorted out.  From this, I learned to bop around in my seat just as well as I can standing up and the view is so much better. It took me a long time to get used to standing the entire time.  
 
So, I have gotten used to standing but a really big pet peeve of mine are the people who are standing and dancing (I use that term loosely) with their arms over their heads and all the while looking everywhere except towards the stage.  I am not all that tall and the extended arms are adding a minimum of two more feet to their height.  On top of which, they're hardly paying attention to the group.  Noooo, they are looking at their dancing feet, singing to their friends, calling their homebound friends and generally, trying to get noticed by others (chickas on their boyfriends' shoulders, my fav).  I say if you are not there to watch the group, stay home, put on the CD and dance until your heart is content.  I am there to see the musicians.  If they play an instrument or sing, that is a bonus.  LOL.    
 
Okay, off of the soapbox.  Thanks for sharing your pics.  See, that was one advantage to your show...great pics!!

 
I think you make some interesting points about sitting.  I can see how everyone sitting would actually make it easier for everyone to see.  I also agree that people who just want to make a scene and get noticed should just stay home if they're not going to actually watch the band.  Don't even get me started on people who go to concerts drunk.
 
It's just that at this time, in 2006, standing has sort of become an action of respect and appreciation at concerts.  If you don't like what you're hearing, you sit.  Obviously, this feeling is understood by the Goos, who seemed a little put off by all the sitting people and went as far as to mention it.

Is this why people stand throughout?  It's considered a sign of respect for the band?  Truthfully, I never gave that a thought.  I always thought it was disrespectful to other audience members especially those who can't stand for long periods of time.  As mentioned, like it or not, I have accepted it.  
 
Back in the day (LOL, are you now wondering just exactly how old I am), we showed our respect and appreciation with standing ovations scattered throughout and lighting our matches (notice I said matches, not BICS) at the end for an encore.  Encores were not always a given as they are now.  There were times you would scream your head off for five minutes or longer trying to get the musicians to return to the stage. (Not to mention going through a pack of matches and burning your fingers off!).  Now, it's all of 30 seconds.  Oh well, enough of the history lesson and trip down memory lane.
 
Thanks for the insight!!  I shall pass this info on to the husband who has been as perplexed as I.
