Darren didn't seem like he wanted to be there, he was off the stage at the end of Messner before Ben could even acknowledge him.
I'd be pissed off if 1500 of my "fans" talked all over my beautiful music too.

Sounds good though - with I had come!

it really pissed me off that people were showing ZERO respect for Darren in the opening act.  I really wanted to hear it and I could barely hear him singing all the way up in the balcony over the deafening roar of 1500 talking ridiculously.

That being said, the concert was all that I could have asked for and more.  Incredible.  Lifelong dream, check!

I honestly don't think Darren even noticed, he seemed to be in his own world during his performance.
I don't think anyone told him afterwards either, how terrible the crowd (mostly the college kids) was with all thier talking and running around and arriving late and whatnot.

Hotel Lights is one of those acts that requires absolute silence - not in just the "oh my gosh, it's Hotel Lights" respectful way, but the "this music is too quiet/mostly down tempo to be heard if we make noise" way. As a result of the talkers, that set was a slight let-down for me (and unfairly so, as Darren was wonderful all evening).

If you are the person who yelled "Rock this bitch", please post so that me and my internetual posse can trace you down and reward you for being such a cool/original person.

Yeah, whoever yelled Rock This Bitch deserves soul cancer.

That's right, CANCER OF THE SOUL.

I wanna shake the hand of the person responsible for following up with "Play that tasty tasty high hat work!" Made Darren smile.

Hopefully cancer can find it, since we couldn't.

Yeah, having that conversation outside the ladies' room wasn't the best idea ever.
