Sparkling Bright Purple tinted lights of 2007 tour
I love you
i see pictures and you make everything look new
so bright
so sparkling and shinny in a way that SP never was
you're like CSI Miami green filters
purple and blue
when i saw you in montreal i was blinded
it was crazy bright and sharp
no fog tricks but lazers from the future


Gish - you had no lights.. just flash photography

SD - you had club lights

MCIS you had a tower of lights & flood colours
(someone find me a pic of the tower of lights)

Yeah, but the keyword is "first". you got them first.


i was always happy with them coming to north america later in the tour, i figured the band would be tighter, more songs in the sets, and so on.

even about 20 days after my show in st paul they pulled out WTBFTT and STRTJ, oh my god so jealous! but can't wait for them to swing around again.

you know it's teh Zeitgeist tour, just by looking at the colors!!!!


the "red/beige" lighting scheme gives an "on stage for a silent theater" feel
ain't no sound going on, just acting!

Is that 9:30 Club? I think I remember seeing the Adam Oates Caps jersey. The venue looks much bigger in that pic though.

nope its the wilkins auditorium in st paul.

i was in front most of the time, but i sensed the end of the set and went to the mixing boards to wait for it to end and grab a setlist.

If you took the guitar away, Jeff would look like Elvis. Ha.

I loooooooove the lights during "That's the Way." The flashing--ah! But really, I do love these lights. They weren't nearly as blinding as I thought they'd be in person. I loved the lights during Rocket (electric). it just washed the stage in blue :)

Maybe they just want to get pictures of the band? I really don't think it's anything more than that. When they're waving it in the air and blocking people's views that's one thing, but I took plenty of pictures of my crappy digital camera, and I love them. So THERE.

MCIS you had a tower of lights & flood colours
(someone find me a pic of the tower of lights)


that light tower was very cool. a giant cone of lights behind the band. i remember while seeing sp during the mcis tour, they opened with wbftt and pulled back a big black curtain, revealing the tower. there were even a few guys perched up in it. this is the only pic i could find, but it isn't very good. i have some video of said concert that i'll dig out and post.

i remember seeing them in '96 and at first being pretty disappointed by the lighting system, then the black cloth was dropped and there were these 4 giant video screens and the huuuuge tower. i creamed myself 3 times simultaneously
