Ok luvsufo thanks for that, I was just in a bit of a bad mood earlier, especially after hearing that they played that private show on Nicolette Island Minneapolis last night, which in theory could of saved me a lot of money & hassle but on the other hand I guess sometimes these unannounced private shows happen & it's just in this case it got leaked out.

Now I'm here in Scranton I feel at lot less annoyed as I love traveling anyway & it's always cool to check out a new city, so it's not a case of spending $600 JUST to see Soul Ayslum, it's worth it for the overall travel experience! Going to check out this heritage railway ride you can do tomorrow & maybe do an old mine tour too.

One thing I am still trying to sort out is how to get to the Casino from Scranton, I believe the only bus option leaves Scranton around 2:30pm which is far too early, I'm staying at the Radisson that offer a free shuttle to Wiles-Barres airport so if anyone who is going could offer me a ride from either the Scranton Raddison or Willes Barres airport then that would be most appreciated!

Early next year? Ah, the postponing has begun... first it was the end of this year for a long time. Let's hope they stick with early next year, and not keep on postponing for over two years as they did for Delayed Reaction.

Just came from the show. Row 5, end seats stage left, right in front of Justin.
My 2nd time seeing SA. Was better than the 1st at The Sands in Bethlehem PA last year!
I WILL be going to see them again!

Why did the room smell (to me) like a farm show was just in there?

1st time seeing them and I was impressed. The venue was strange being a sit down show and luckily a bachelorette party changed that and I ended up in front of the stage. I think the band liked that a bunch of people just decided to party in front of the stage. As far as the band....a great laid back show with a lot of joking around and great guitar playing. Heres the setlist :
Without a trace
Never really been
The juice
I did my best
Little too clean
Marionette
Lately
Oxygen
Misery
Watcha need
Black gold
Runaway train
Closer to the stars
Gravity
Just like anyone
Somebody to shove
Stand up and be strong
Encore: Spinnin and April Fool

Nice meeting the biggest Soul Asylum fan I now know AndrewttW

Hey Everyone from the Scranton concert,

First time poster here. This is Ben (really ripped jeans). It was nice talking to everyone after the show. It was good to see Winston and Michael after the show, but we didn't catch Dave. Enjoyed talking w/Andrew and the girls. Andrew, was your return flight w/Soul Asylum? Anyway, an awesome and really fun show. A personal thanks to the bachelorettes who influenced everyone to come up to the stage.
