    I'll be happy to email them if anyone would like an extra ticket. I'm an early riser.

    I think they'll be plenty to be had once the hype dies down. Like with End of Watch.

    I saw them last night. It was more charming and intimate than I'd expected with a crowd of over 3 thousand. I loved hearing about their collaboration and thoughts on writing. Owen was awesome and of course so was his dad. A great night. AND I was one of the lucky ones who walked away with a signed copy.

    Wow. Didn't realize the crowd was that large. My wife and I went and luckily my copy was signed. My wife wondered how I knew that it was MY copy that was the signed and not hers. I assure her it was one of those things I just "knew".

    Hahahaha. A guy just knows.

    I looked up the maximum capacity of the venue and it seats 5,000. And then Owen said something about the crowd being 3,000 people when Steve was bantering.

    The sound was not too great. We could hear most of in, but not the best location to really hear it too well.

    Yeah, I guess I could lose my mind and chase down all the UK limiteds but I'll keep what's left of my money and my marriage I suppose.

    Yeah, if you try to think of the marriage as a limited edition, it might make it a little easier.

    Well, they said that Chicago was the largest stop on the tour. So you'll have better odds of getting a signed copy. Good luck! I hope you get one!

    Thank you!

    Don't remember if you were on the DT meetup list or not, but we are planning on leaving Tacoma at about 2 and get down to Bailey's at around 4:30 and just hang out (after procuring foods) before the event.

    Will not be there. Working a full day then going home to get my wife. Will probably get to the venue around 6:30 to 6:45. Have fun though!
