    Good. Everyone should wear PP shirts to every show they attend. :)

    Yes!

    I was surprised not to see another one at the Kamelot show. Although the place was packed so I easily could have missed several. Hope to see some at Helloween and Oliva.

    Another easy thing that can help spread the word is this. I printed out the flyer last May and put it up at the Guitar Center store in Manhattan and the Sam Ash store in Edison, NJ. As soon as the new print-quality flyer comes out for XV, I encourage everyone to print a few out and hang them up at their local music or CD stores regardless of where you live. Though Atlanta area attendees should be especially certain to do so.

    I was the one with the long hair just to the left of the first tree - were you the guy I talked to at the bar or during the break before Kamelot's encore? :)

    Well, if history is any indication, probably overpriced and with bad designs.

    This is one band who throughout the years I NEVER bought a shirt by because they are usually very lame, unfortunately.

    Bob and Pat said they were very bad in Germany.
    I assume they are the same designs with different backs.

    On the last Hellish Rock tour I remember them having decent ones of their old albums. I'd get one of those at least. I don't really know if I'd get one with the current album cover as it's a terrible cover.

    Well, yeah, I guess those retro shirts are cool I suppose.
    Though not really for $30 to $40, but that's just my opinion.

    Why are you hating on CGI album art?

    30 I would do for a band like Helloween. 40 is insane.

    I've never been a fan of overly obvious CGI art. Dance of Death probably being the worst of it all.

    Yeah, I was joking on CGI.
    I hate it as well.
    Helloween album art leaves a lot to be desired.

    Gambling was almost acceptable

    Think I saw you guys on the upper level there. I didn't want to give up my spot close to the railing or I would say hello.
