What can I say? I'm speechless! Great Show! Loved it all! Took my 7 year old son who thought Juke Box Hero was the best! I can't pick my favorite, all the songs were great. Two thumbs up to the best band of all time! :wub::wub::wub::wub:

Wow is all I can say! It was possibly the most awesome experience ever. I've only gone to 3 concerts (Bruce Springstein, Ringo Starr and his All-Star Band and Foreigner), but this blew the others away.
I got in line at around 4:15, and sat front row, dead center. It was amazing. At the end of the show, I caught 8 picks, and during the show I caught one actually used by Jeff Pilson. I ended up giving away 7, keeping only 1 of the Mick Jones picks (man, he was AMAZING at guitar) and I kept the Jeff Pilson used pick. I dropped the drumstick Jason shattered and then threw into the stands (GRRRR) and my friend almost caught one at the end.

Overall, it was amazing (that, and riding El Toro two times!)

last night was truly special!
Jason's last show and the band was full of admiration for him!!  The drum solo was phenomenal!  and the whole band and crew all stood on the side of the stage watching it!  Jason had a video camera that he was taping the audience with then a member of the crew finished taping the show for him.  As the last song was coming to an end Kelly and the band started taking Jason's drum kit apart while he was still playing it, too funny!!  And as Jason came out for the final bow, Kelly jumped on Jason with his legs wrapped around him and they spun around about three times.  Jason threw out many, many drum sticks to the adoring crowd.  And this lucky girl has the best memento ever...Thanks Jason!!!

Glad everyone enjoyed the cupcakes!
Gina

I have to add just how fortunate I was to see these last shows with Jason.  The weekend was filled with lots of special moments which I got to share with my boyfriend in AC and my best friend at Great Adventure.

Kelly, Jason, Jeff and Michael you guys are truly the best!!!:wub:

oh and JC you rock girl!!!

Gina: I knew I probably should've been there for the "mere" fact it was Jason's last show.....theme park gig be damned:smile:

BTW, how's your boyfriend after Rutgers' horrible display yesterday afternoon?

Thank goodness my WVU boys kicked butt:tongue:
