Why oh why do people insist on leaving the concert at the reprise of IAIS? Is it a UK thing? Do they really think that Neil would finish without Rosie or Brother Love?
Also, whilst Im about it , what is the best recording of IAIS . I want one that includes the whole reprise which I love and I think that this is fundamental to the song.Too many are just faded out.
No, I'm sure it is not 'a UK thing' in all the concerts I attended, and I was at many, I never saw anyone leave early. Not sure where you were sat! Please don't think we are all so rude over here. Neil received excellent responses at all the concerts and as far as I could see people stayed until the concert had finished. BUT I did find annoying the people who were constantly going back and forth to the bar. This must have been really annoying to the people sat/stood in their immediate area. This happened in the US as well as here in the UK.
We were searched at Earls Court and my 8 year old daughters' orange squaush in a plastic bottle that we bought for the two hour journet home was taken off us (Although they did provide a polysterene cup to put the contents in?) When asked why it was "Because of a security risk /Dunno they seem to make the rules up as they go along."
And then when we had taken our seats,lads passed by with 3 or 4 glass bottles of lager bought at the bar behind the stand?
Typical Britain. Rip us off on merchandise and treat us as fools. Same at NEC Birmingham!
hey, that seems to be when the critics leave too, lol. Some

people have this "thing" about being the first out of the parking lot. These are the same kind of people who leave Church right after communion instead of waiting until the priest leaves the altar.
Still others I'm sure, may really think the concert's over. jmho
That happens here in the US as well...It's a concept I've never been able to grasp...yeah, you get out of the parking lot first..(whooptie doo!) but you miss those closing (and valuable) moments with Neil. I pay good money to see him perform, I ain't leaving till he's left the stage.
