CoF XX Night 1 was incredible! To Robert, Simon, Roger, Jason, and Reeves, Thank You so much for a fantastic show! Now what will they do for Night 2 of the CoF 20th Anniversary Party? Whatever it is, it's sure to be fantastic. And again, we encourage you to go crazy! Go "dark", go "deep", play b-sides, play songs not played in years! Hell, do Beyonce covers if you want. Just have fun! :)
If you have GA floor tickets you will enter at Gate 5 on Congress, if you have reserved tickets you enter at Gate 3 on Racine & Harrison.
Note: They are selling posters with the Chicago dates on them for $25. Photo here.
It is very hot here. Bring some water if waiting in line, and leave the jackets and trench coats at home. Also, it was very warm to hot inside the arena last night, too. Hopefully they'll fix the air for tonight, but just letting you know.
If you're still looking for tickets, I will be posting any last minute offers on Twitter (I'm @CraigatCoF) and here (until I head down to the show).
