Fort Yates, ND - Prairie Knights Casino Pavillion

From: r-ette

We got to the casino around 3:30 pm. It is literally in the middle of nowhere. There's nothing around it for miles. We got checked in and were in the room for awhile. We ate dinner, then went into the casino. It's really small--I've never seen a casino that small. MY2G's cell phone didn't work in the casino, so we went outside. She was on the phone when all of a sudden we heard the beginning of Naked!!! We were right outside the door to the venue, so we listened to the entire soundcheck. They also played parts of Slide, Cuz You're Gone, Black Balloon, We are the Normal, and Here Is Gone. I had a front row ticket and MY2G had a 4th row ticket. I just have to say that I'm so glad that they are headlining again!! The guys looked so happy and were so energetic!! I'll let MY2G or someone else post about the stories John told because I'm not good at remembering them. I also posted the setlist on another thread. We were just absolutely THRILLED that they played Cuz You're Gone with 1000 words!!!, We are the Normal, and Burnin' Up (my favorite Robby song )!!!!!!!! After the show the guys came out and signed stuff for everyone!! I had them sign their new poster. Robby, then Mike, then John went down the line to sign. John had never seen the poster and he thought it was cool!! Then he gave me a big hug and thanked me for coming!!! I know I already said this, but I'm so glad they're headlining again! They looked like they were having a lot of fun and really enjoying themselves! They were so nice to everyone afterwards! I really hope everyone gets a chance to see them on this last leg of the tour. It was a very long drive, but it was so worth it!! Setlist out of order:
