Pepsi Smash review!!!

I just got back from the Pepsi Smash and there's so much to tell I don't know where to start. This could be long so beware.
 
My friend Terri and I got down to the Theater around 4:15 and ended up being 4th in line. We waited in that line for 21/2 hours. It wasn't too cold but after that long I couldn't feel my toes. Security was EVERYWHERE!!!! The FBI, military and cops were everywhere. It was quite the site to see. It was for that reason we decided not to smuggle in our cameras. I did get a couple of pictures off the big screen with my camera phone. If they look decent I'll post them. We met some super great people in line. Talking and laughing with them really helped pass the time.
 
Once we got inside we ended up on the main floor, the VIP area. We were dead center behind the sound board. It was a perfect view because it was elevated up from the main floor. In the VIP area we were treated to a free spread of amazing food and free drinks ALL night!!
 
First up was Train. They switched the line up because the Goos were supposed to be first....at least that's what I was told by the manager at the State. Train was awesome live. I was really impressed. They played all their radio hits so I knew every song. The crowd was very responsive to them.
 
Now for the Goos!!!! The Goos opened with Big Machine and they sounded great!!! Terri and I were representing in the back so they would know their true fans were there too. We were singing, dancing and screaming for them. At one point between songs John commented about all the pretty girls in front and then asked the people in front how much they were paid to be there....HA...go John!! Terri and I figured it was a jab at VH1 for their rules about the "pretty, young people being in front". They really had the crowd going with Slide and Iris. The new keyboardist...sorry don't know his name... played one helluva mean sax during Broadway! It was so great I screamed myself hoarse. I hope they keep him. Broadway just isn't the same without the sax. Their setlist was.....
Big Machine
Black Balloon
Smash
Better Days
Slide
Here Is Gone
Broadway
Iris
 
There was a VIP section in front of us with a bunch of NFL players in it. I don't know who any of them were but there were many.
 
Nickleback was up next and boy were they loud. I loved their show but I am seriously deaf now. They opened with the new one from their album Animals....I love that song. They also did Photograph and all their radio hits. They also had an amazing pyrotechnics show.
 
We didn't stick around for Kanye West as we're not fans. But we met some of the nicest people tonight....in line and during the show. It was a really great night. I was super proud to call myself a Detroiter tonight!

Shannon- I can't sleep- what a great time!
 
Oh- and Blessed by Goo- we thought of you- John said at the end of Iris- Give yourself some love!! And I screamed the best time ever-ever!! LOL!  We were thinking about you and all the other true fans that weren't bribed to be there. Can't wait for the next tour.  
 
Detroit- you made me proud tonight!  Cheesy

Tim, I don't know if anyone but a Goo fan would have noticed the slip up. He just stumbled over some of the words and kept on going. But then he was smiling and laughing to himself. He knew he messed it up. It wasn't nearly as noticeable a slip up as he usually does with Sympathy. Really only the fans who knew the song would have noticed. But it was cute nonetheless. I love that about John...he's just real.
