some folks is jus there for the scene, man....

if'n yer-a talkin', then you ain't-a listenin'

It used to kill me when I would go see the Dead, and there would be people outside before the show desperately trying to score a ticket, and then when I went to take a piss, I'd see them sitting in a circle in the lobby. really?

That's messed up! I had friends that saw a show at Clearwater and said it was super intimate and that you could hear folks chatting and it was annoying.

Didn't Jorma have a set of rules??

I hope those folks are embarrassed for themselves to make Bob have to do that ....

Bobby's not exactly background music for a social scene... I mean, if you want that cool... stay in the lobby.

I get how friends in a bar want to chat (and the band is too loud), but in a concert venue, and with a master on stage, show some f*cking respect.

That is messed up. I watched most of it and gotta say he did try to get folks to settle down. It's a small room with acoustic designed for killer sound, not loudness and no way can he hear over hoots and hollars and no way can the rest of the folks enjoy the show. And frankly, at his age and experience, folks should chill and show some respect.

I was fortunate to see two Bobby acoustic shows in 2012 (Mishawaka amphitheater and Paramount Theater) In Colorado. Both relatively small venues. I have to say, for me, an absolute blast and I can't wait to see more this year. I HOPE this kind of crap doesn't turn Bob off from future acoustic performances. If you haven't made it out to one of his acoustic shows, I strongly recommend it.

I had that problem at the 9:30 club here in DC. I wanted to see the opening band got there early got my favorite spot on the balcony near the upstairs bar. Fecking hipster chicks cackling at the bar behind me during the whole opening set, STFU. Although I know I have had people get pissed at me cause I can whistle, Loud. But not throughout the whole song, geeeezooo.

I think I saw Zappa threaten to walk off stage, He didn't in the end but i barely remember the show so i could be wrong.

{didn't get to watch the video but read the article} Rock on Bob.

I may be in the minority here, but that was a pretty uninspired performance that I found difficult to watch online. I probably would have been at the bar talking also. :oops:

I was at a Kimock show last mont in Fall River where these two totally trashed chicks would not STFU. Kimock would take the dynamics way down , and all you'd here were these two skanks blabbing away. they didn't even know what show they were at . Luckily, but the second set they were both passed out in the chairs behind me .. I hate people talking at shows. Also Bonnamassa at PPAC . He plays LOUD , and this chick on her cell phone is trying to talk over the loudness for a solid 15 minutes and wouldn't STFU, she ended up getting heckled so bad she left the show for the night. Thank god . Ignorant people suck .
