heh... it was funny that the 9:30 club was noticeably darker that night owing to all the light being absorbed by all the black-wearing goths in attendance.

True, I was impressed they all still fit their goth duds.  I was scared of bumping into anyone and getting lots of white foundation make-up all over me.  Great show though.

I think reunion shows can be fun if they're not overdone and they don't continue to tour without putting out something new.  
 
 I saw the Pistols too and they were great, despite the irony in the Pistols doing such a tour.
 
 I saw the Who on their reunion tour in 1989, and wasn't expecting much since Pete was playing acoustic guitar and couldn't hear, and the band hasd extra musicians.  i was afraid it would be a Vegas lounge act.  But it totally rocked. They played for about four hours (including a break) and played 40 songs (we counted).  Now, i also saw them last year after Entwistle died and is was still really good (and Pete was playing electric guitar this time) but it seemed odd that they had nothing new to play.
 
 I would definitley go see Led Zeppelin if they reformed, esp. with someone like Dave Grohl drumming

Are you sure about that?  As fun as the Styx/REO Speedwagon/Journey show was, all the new stuff each band played SUCKED.  Some bands should stick to their hits.

On priciple I would not see Led Zepplin if John Paul Jones is not on tour with them.  He is the bomb.  Without him on mellotron and bass you don't have the band.  Was pissed that they played without him a bit back as Led Zep.
