If you're going to the show and wouldn't mind helping me with the live coverage, please let me know. Mainly looking for live setlist updates and photos of the merchandise, but anything you want to contribute will be welcomed. Olivier should be providing updates at It's A Perfect Day, and Perfect.Murder & Greg have also offered to help, but we can always use backup. We can do it via email, Twitter, Spacebook, text, WhatsApp, whatever works best for you.
Thank you, and have a great time at the show tonight!
