I was at the Cleveland show, it was great! My roommate and I were at the very front for the entire set-- he even moved a piece of broken glass out of John's way. I probably really embarrassed myself but that's okay, it was really fun. Before the show, AND after the show, we got to meet John and speak with him. His drummer also spoke to us for a while-- he gave my roommate a cigarette! Both of them were really kind, and I met a lot of other nice people as well, other fans and whatnot. I almost felt like kind of a phony-- this one woman was speaking to us about how she'd been waiting six years to see him. I've only been a fan for like a year! Plus I'm not really in city areas ever so it was a really really surreal and unique experience. We took a selfie with John and he signed our shirts! He also signed my Heaven Is Real book.
also had my first uber experience... a very nice man named Vladimir drove us to our hotel after the show
Had a very good time at the Cleveland show. The young folks up front were wild and moshing but no dickholes ruined anything for me. The sound was a little wonky at times, and I couldn't tell if it was a venue thing, or if the group was still working on making the band set up sound good. Anyone else who goes to shows this tour, post how the sound was for you. I'm def curious. Setlist was near perfect. Castles in the grave, quantum leap, and the rain, rights for gays, missiles in flight, the crucifix, the streetlight, Time to die, maniac, through the skies for you, cop killer, pets, touchdown. And then after all that an encore! Do your best, and believer. I can't imagine what John's body must have felt like after all that.
I didn't notice any issues with the sound, but my roommate said he thought the bass sounded kind of out of chune, specifically on Quantum Leap. It didn't sound off at all to me, but there's a good chance I was excited to the point of delirium.
