I just turned 35, and my 9th show will be night 2 in Chicago, with number 10 being Pittsburgh.

I was supposed to first see them way back on their PopMart tour in Clemson, but the guy who was going to take me (I was only 16 or 17 at the time) ended up taking one of my sisters as his date, instead. I then tried for Elevation tour tickets in Atlanta, but they sold too quickly. I finally first saw them at night 2 in Atlanta on the Vertigo tour, followed by night one in Chicago and also Pittsburgh, both on the 360 tour; and, then night 2 in Toronto, night 8 in NYC, both nights in Belfast, and then the opening night in Dublin, all on the I&E tour.

37 and I've been blessed to see them play once in person. I doubt I'll get another chance.
