Take A Bow sounded awesome. When the guitar came in at Pal Norte, he was tapping along to the synth and it sounded badass.

Same in Australia, it was awesome.

He might get one of those colourful baseball caps with drink holders and tube straws going into one's mouth. Just put two big thermoses of tea on there, et voilŕ.

Agree with the DD verse, the sustained guitar gave it more atmosphere and richness in sound.

Seems like he plays the sustained guitar near the end of IS instead, at least in Mexico

Clunge: I had no idea Muse closed with Showbiz in 2006
Certainly, when I saw U2 in 2015 (and indeed have noticed from watching their gigs on YouTube, ironically), their audience is full of phone users.

Maybe it is a very much now thing for tours at this level, but I do find that it helps add to the dislocation you get from watching a gig through a viewfinder (or through someone else's, for that matter). And I say that well aware I take loads of pics at gigs for my Facebook friends to ignore.

Ehhhh, I went to a couple A Perfect Circle shows where there is a super strict no phones rule (can't even have it out to text) and everyone abides by it, but it was one of the most dead energy crowds I've ever been in. Standers gonna stand, phones or not.

That's interesting, I didn't know certain bands were actually that strict with phones. It's a shame the crowd was still dead, what's the age demographic like with A Perfect Circle? I know literally nothing about them.

At 29 I tend to be on the younger side at a U2 gig by quite a bit so I doubt a phoneless gig would be all that different. Then again, they're not exactly a band known for rough crowds/ mosh pits and the like. Muse on be other hand still have their rowdy moments and I've definitely been given a dirty looks in recent years for accidentally getting in the way of a kodak moment whilst jumping around.

To be fair though, SBE was fantastic. Everyone was really up for it.

Outside of very small fanbases, US crowds are typically not that active, regardless of age, demographic, or phone use.
Honestly, I enjoy it a hell of a lot more than the constant jumping up and down and moshing of the '90s, which prevented me from really watching or enjoying the majority of gigs I went to back in the day.

I'm not into the full on heavy mosh pits but I'm getting tired of having to push my way to the front rows each show just to get a crowd that isn't dead still. There's seats/back of the crowd always if you want calm.

I don't really mind losing sight of the band if I've seen them before.

I'm sure there's just as many people up front who just want a close up view of the band they paid to see without someone slamming into them, too.
Everyone pays the same ticket price, and has the right to watch the show however they see fit, without being overly disruptive.

The moshing and pogoing of the '90s was absolute bullshit, tbh. It was just something you had to do, and did systematically to every single song of every single band because "that's how concerts are."
It wasn't people expressing enjoyment of the band, it was just an excuse to not control excess testosterone in a healthy manner, and "tradition."

As a rock musician must be discouraging seeing the audience not even nodding their heads.

I remember watching an interview with Thom Yorke and he has the best outlook on it imo. Some crowds get rowdy, some crowds stay still and soak it in - you can never tell until you get out there and, when you do, you've just gotta accept whatever the vibe is that night, adjust and get on with it. As long as the crowd's not actively disrespecting you, it's all good.

Over the years, I've learned to just do me and focus on my own enjoyment at gigs, whether that means dancing/singing and shit or just watching. Probs a massive embarrassment to look at sometimes but, other than that, I'm not disrupting anyone else so fook it. If the entire crowd is doing the same as you it's obvs a perfect vibe, but I'm not gonna let whatever everyone else is doing stop me from enjoying it how I want to. Sometimes you can tell other people around you feel like doing the same so you can actually break the ice a bit for them that way as well.

Same frontman from Tool, so there's fandom crossover. And the same strict rule applies for Tool & Puscifer shows. http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/a-p...y-at-concerts/

As I'd say the age range is late 20s through late 40s. We're gettin' old! The Portland show's audience was a bit more energetic, while I swear I felt like I was in a library at the CA show. Pretty sure I stuck out like a sore thumb being the only handful of people into it. They would have some smaller venue shows that would get a bit more energetic, but there's also a no moshing rule on that last tour last year, so I guess people just stand completely still these days?

I don't miss the bruised ribs and injury days for sure, but a little movement and interest would be nice!

Agreed. Some head nodding goes a long way.

I clap and cheer after songs, and that's about it nowdays. I've also enjoyed the gigs a ton more for paying attention.
Phones go in the opposite direction, and I don't get how people enjoy the gig while worrying about filming or taking pictures, but again to each their own.

I would assume artists take some solace from seeing a packed crowd, no matter what they're doing, and the fat paycheck that that entails.
At any rate, I don't feel bad for them.
