Aug 9, 2001: The Portland concert was a lot of fun. Amy and I didn't get to sit next to each other because we had so many people there: Jay, Jason, Patricia and Ringo. However, the energy in our row was out of control, everyone could scream along with every line and even for the new stuff from Exciter. The visuals were pretty cool, but nothing like what they had for the Devotional tour.
The 'Seattle' show was actually at the Gorge, way out in the middle of no where. That show was *incredible*. It was just Amy and me and Ringo, up against the barrier, directly in front of Martin Gore. They skipped almost all of the visuals because it was outside. Dave and Martin were so on. It was great. Really great.
