hey i flew from edmonton, alberta for the concert on thursday i have previously flown to montreal to see regina and it was amazing the venue was the le national, everyone was sassy twentysomethings ordering wine by the bottle, being only 17 then i was so intimidated but everyone i talked was so kind, such cool people anyways this concert was much different first of all i lended my advice to some 14 years old girls in the merch line, i told them the girl shirts fit small because i have already ordered some online... they did'nt even respond i got back to my spot and i was standing next to a group of 13-14 years old girls the whole night, once only son started a girl behind decided that she should tell only son he "is fucking hot" only son would not even look at her so for his entire set she kept screaming, very determinded for him to notice her, he finally said thank you after his second last song so this had been going on almost his whole set.... now when regina started the girls beside me were quite happy it wasn't untill real love that they got pissed, they just kept saying "what the hell, why isn't she playing fidelity or samson, this is such bullshit" and they had the NERVE to yell play samson DURING real love and when she left after real love they were angry, they called her a bitch and said it was such a stupid show when they called her a bitch my heart shattered a little..(i know yours would too) i didn't bothering telling them she would be playing them for her encore (i didn't want to get regected again..) so once she sang fidelity they were pleased but realized she had'nt sung samson they said she was so stupid and she sounded like a man when she sang... excuse me then why did you come??? once she did play samson they sang so loud but in a mocking tone i was so upset i kept saying i did'nt fly here for a bad show so i had to brush it off i ended up meeting regina and i don't regret going at all but im just hoping for next time its a intimate venue, with intimate songs.... thank you for so much for listening to this rant i really needed to get it off my chest...

What a drag, Paris. You have to try again though. I've been to two concerts and the crowd was very nice both times. The first time, in philly, i had my 12 year old with me and people near me offered us a stool for her to kneel on so she could see better. Everyone there loved Regina and was so happy to be seeing her.

Next time, if you get next to some idiots, try to squeeze through the crowd (I know it can be tough, but it's worth it) to another spot. In fact, it would be worth moving to the back to avoid those girls. (Ask Andreseng! The sound is best further back anyway.)

I agree completely...Argh, I was so pissed off from the beginning of the concert, I could barely appreciate the music...My friends and I went towards the front of the crowd, and everyone started bitching at me for being too tall, so I took off my shoes, and then I knelt down, but they kept bitching at me: "I've been here since 7!" ("Yo, it's only 7:15, if you really were a hardcore fan, you would have been here hours ago!" I wish I said that.) And Regina seemed to be rushing through it anyways...She barely said a word to the audience...In fact, as mentioned, she hushed them on several occasions. The screaming was so loud. sigh. sad sad sad.
