  1. Love what he had to say. I cried during Disintegration. It's usually on others, but this time, it was so intense.

  2. OMG those were great! I loved his story about going to see David Bowie and how disappointed he was when he only played 40 minutes, and even today, that informs his approach to a show.

    I love how he always, still, keeps in mind the fans and how much they look forward to the shows and how far they travel and even have to save money to get there.

    I (heart) Robert and the band and feel so blessed to be able to see them so much this past year. Oh, and I saw Fuji in the first one, at 1:29!

  3. After watching these, I felt more privileged to have been there and really really realized how special each show has been since 4Tour began. They have really done some special things for the fans.

    I loved the buckets-o-piss and then I felt "punk." Classic.

    The "die hards." I wonder who they are??

  10. Hey Craig, I'm sorry to threadjack, but I totally forgot to link you to these pics. This guy was the one who came up with the pic of Robert with Tim Burton at the KROQ show in LA in December.

    It looks like not only did he GO to the NME awards, but he was actually AT their table and backstage with them. Great behind-the-scenes pics! Lucky bastard!
