INXS Switched On Tour: Oshawa, ON - 11/14/2006


Had fun tonight? That is an understatement! I screamed, I danced, I hopped seats, hopped back, hopped again, made people laugh at (and hopefully with) me, I squeeded, I danced, I squeeded some more, and I FUCKING SQUEEPED MY PANTS DURING NTUA - JD fucking sang the WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!! He started out handing the mike over to the crowd when the lines "But some of us don't know" and then he sang the WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! I'm telling you, I started screaming so loud, I pogoed, I jumped into b4beth's arms... It was the most beautiful thing!!!

We had a freaking beautiful view - DEAD CENTER! JD played mostly in front of us - he did get to the sides, but not as much as in Hamilton.

JD's new tattoo on his back is along his spine - I had a real clear view during one of the clothes changes. It's some sort of symbols, either asian or indu. It looks good up there with the others.

He also had a new belt buckle - Only Cash (or Cash Only). :)

And yes, JD had problem putting his shirt on again - I actually think he does it on purpose...

He also showed his nipples to some woman trying to take a pic - I think it was the family/friend woman... She wouldn't take it and he was teasing her, trying to make her take the pic... Nice nipples.... ;)

Andrew came right up front for Pretty Vegas, even making his way almost all the way to Tim side. It was great to see him a bit more up close! He's amazing to watch play. He was wearing a turquoise t-shirt, with either jeans or black pants, I can't remember.

Last night in Hamilton, I caught a cup and JD poured me some champagne. I caught another one tonight, and gave it to b4beth, but I don't think she got any champagne. :(

Last night the cups were plain red plastic cups - tonight, they were personalized! The one I caught had a Kirk picture on it, with the date and city name. At the end of the show, I got another one with a Jon pic on it! *L*

Oh and I got a Tim pic - he was throwing them left right and center!

Jon was in great form! He made eye contact with lots of people. Unfortunately not with me. :( The front row was about 3 people deep, and I was in the second row, dead center. JD spent a lot of time right there in front of me, so he was blocking the view to Jon. I know sooner will be disappointed in me, but I REALLY didn't mind JD blocking the view..... He was right there for me to see almost the whole night! :)

Jon had the black gloves on tonight. :)

Tim was in better shape than last night. He did the "Slide over here, and give me a moment" thing with JD for a bit. He also went on Kirk side quite a bit. He was teasing the crowd a lot, gesturing "I'm lonely, Can't think at all, Gonna live my life". He was wearing a brightly colored shirt, with jeans I think.

Garry looked hot again tonight! He was wearing a burgundy t-shirt, with either brown or black pants. Sorry I can't seem to remember the color of the pants tonight - I'm short, and there was a tall, drunk out of her ass girl in front of me!

Anyway, Garry looked and sounded great again tonight. He and JD really played off of each other a lot, and they were teasing one another all night. :) Garry didn't come up front much, but when he did, it was mostly on the sides.

I didn't see much of Kirk tonight. I actually am not sure what he was wearing! *shame on me*. I think he had a caramel leather jacket, but I wouldn't swear on it. He made a lot of faces to the crowd, smiled a lot, gave lots of love to the ladies on his side of the stage. :) He did his taste it solo on his side - he didn't venture much on Tim's side tonight.

The security guys had a hard time with the front row peeps - many without front row seats stayed there after the openers. The security guys sent back many people, who only came right back to where they were before. *L* So the front row was jammed packed, 3 people deep for most of it. Our seats were in 3rd row just a tiny bit off center, but we hoped and got second row DEAD center. There was a girl who was at her first INXS concert, and tagged along (well we dragged her) for the seat hopping. She couldn't believe we were doing this, she had a great time!

Oh, one last poof worthy comment...

JD sprayed champagne on us I think after the first song of the encore, or coming back for the encore, I'm not sure... My chest got soaked - it was an awesome feeling to just open my arms and let the champagne drops fall on me! He also sprayed water during NTUA! :)

I got to see the two openers - Juice was first, and then Bryan Byrne came on.

Juice was surprisingly good live! The singer has a great voice, and everyone sounded good. They sang a short set - 6 or 7 songs. They did "Movie Star" and tho I prefer JD's voice, it sounded pretty fucking awesome! JD also made an appearance on stage for their last song, sang back up vocals for them all the while shaking hands with the band members. :)

Bryan Byrne is really good! A bit too country for my taste, but he's got a great voice. He was really interacting with the front row peeps, who were standing there especially for him. He talked with them a lot, gave them pics, joking he couldn't give anymore since he only had three... *L* He is quite cute, too! He did "Whole Lotta Love" for his last song, and he fucking rocked the shit out of it, it was a great way to get the crowd excited for INXS!

There was a little kid - probably around 6 - who was there with mom. He was sad because he had not gotten a stick from Jon. inzane, who had received a stick from Juice, went up to him and offered it to him. The little kid refused it, saying it was not the same brand Jon uses. *LOL* I thought that was too funny that even at that age, the kid knows what he's talking about in terms of brand! *L*

The new mike stand is made of one unique piece of metal/aluminum/whatever. It seems to be more resistant to JD's incessant attacks.

Well, tonight, JD was throwing that bitch all over the stage, and threw it down HARD on the last drum beats of Don't Change. He managed to broke the stand again - he broke the base of it! *LOL* He got the broken piece and gave it to that woman who seems to be a relative or a family friend.

INXS Switched On Tour: Hamilton, ON - 11/13/2006

Awesome show!!!!! I was standing in the third row with aussieb and b4beth, but moved to second row and front row during the show. :)

JD was in rare form - his voice was the best I've ever heard him. He played a lot with the melodies of many songs, used his falsetto a lot (I LOVE IT!!!) and was just in an absolutely wonderful vocal form. Kick and Disappear are back on the set list. We had a 4 songs encore (NS, FPB, NTUA and DC). JD added some sort of intro to Mystify, and it was WOW!!! I loved it. He talked a lot tonight, interacted with the band a lot - lots of man love up on that stage! JD was especially playful with Garry tonight, who was hotter than hot (the best I've seen him, WOW!).

Fashion Show:
Garry wore a brown pant, brown (or black?) button down shirt, with a brown vest. He looked REALLY REALLY HOT!!!

Kirk wore his usual attire... Sorry, I was on Tim side, didn't see a whole lot of Kirk! :(

Jon had WHITE GLOVES, black pants and a grey t-shirt. He looked good, but a bit tired - I guess he's still a bit sick.

Andrew had a green shirt and black pants on. He shook his booty off like there was no tomorrow!

Tim had on a turquoise and brown vest, with a turquoise shirt underneath, and wore a turquoise scarf. He came back in a grey wife beater for the encore.

JD started out with a hat, sunglasses, scarf, tie, shirt, pants. He lost most of his clothing during the show, changed his shirt for a t-shirt. Coming back for the encore, he was not wearing a shirt, but was trying to put on a button down shirt - I guess that was the wardrobe malfunction - we screamed for him to loose it, but he wanted none of it. ;) He finished the night getting dressed with his shirt, tie, suit, scarf hat... I liked that. :)

Where I was standing, the sound was horrible. It was great for the first two songs, then they did Afterglow, and JD lost his mike completely. The sound was ok after that, with some more problems during the show. At some point all I could hear was Jon's drums. Nevertheless, the show was killer for all the energy, the sheer joy on the BINXS faces, and how beautiful JD's voice was! :)

Oh, JD was throwing red cups in the audience during one of the first few songs, and I caught one from the third row. :) Later on he poured champagne in some cups, and I got some... He poured it all over my arm, too. *L* Yummy!

Jon did a bit of a solo at the end of Don't Change... He banged the crap out of those drums! I saw Kerry standing at the side of the stage, and she had the biggest smile on her face, banging her head and clapping for Jon... It was great!

Garry - UBER HOT! Jon, I felt looked tired, but you are probably right about the beer and the buzz. *L* JD - so, so, so, so, so much better than he was at Massey Hall, and I thought he was the shit back then, so you can only imagine how much he has grown as a performer. Tim is just a blast to watch on stage, as always! Kirk did come and sat in front of us for the sax solo during Taste It, and he had a grand old time spraying the front row with water, even the security guy, which, btw, sang every song of the set the whole night!

During JD's chocolate orgams rap, when he sings "Sloooooooooooooooow, so I can feel it" ... BANG goes the drums, the bass and the guitars! Hits you right in the chest. WOW!

I also got to meet p57 and AnaLyzing!!! Both really nice gals. I also ran into tmajic out on the street - great to see you girl! And I got to meet one of the most beautiful girl I've seen - BSCGirl's daughter.

JD was bragging about being busted in Newfoundland for smoking... It was quite funny!

JD was in such great form last night... His voice was amazing... He really went from the passionate, really into the music performer, to the little kid who can't believe all those people are there to see him... He was funny, playful, intense, passionate, sexual, giddy all at the same time!

And I gotta say... Him lying down on the side speakers... Standing up at first, holding on to the cables... Slowly sliding down to a sitting position, slowly sliding his feet along the speaker box until he was lying down on it, his legs bent... That was so hot.......... *poof*

Did you notice Kermit hanging on from the disco ball above the stage? I *LMAO* when aussieb and b4beth pointed that out!

Also, did anyone saw JD kissing the clothes girl when he changed from his shirt to his t-shirt? I thought that was sweet!

Did anyone see that JD hit Kirk's sax with his mike during one of Kirk's solo? That happened on Tim's side. Also, JD hit Andrew's guitar quite a few times during the Taste It solo... That was hot! He sort of hit Kirk's sax (the opening of it) with his microphone - not really hit, but move it to the beat very close to the opening. Than he literally hit Andrew's guitar with his hand during his Taste It solo.
