Saw you amazing guys at the BDO when I was younger- you rocked the entire stadium off it's foundations....Now all I have to do is wait for you legends to return to little ole NZ and maybe please do a proper nationwide tour :) (preferably to Wellington too...)

You guys rock!

We got free tickets to see Maroon5, but the only reason we went was because we heard The Hives were playing. They were AWESOME! We walked out as soon as they left the stage. Please come back to Orlando. Next time, leave Maroon 5 at home!

When: October 12th

The first thing I noticed was that there was this group of guys sitting in a booth at the Violent Femmes show and they all had on matching bright white shoes and black & white suits.
I walked by, smiled and commented 'nice shoes'... It made me genuinely happy to see this sight. Didn't really think anything of it until I saw a couple of these same guys walk by me during the show. THEN it came to me... who these guys were. Ohmygod, it was so cool to see the band enjoying a show before their own show. It didn't appear that too many of the audience knew who they were, so they could actually relax a bit.
After the show a few of us had gone back stage to talk to the Femmes (as some of our group have been friends for many years). As we were sitting eating pizza and drinking beer while watching the World Series, The Hives came to meet The Violent Femmes. I never know what to say to people who I admire and who are famous, but I had the opportunity to talk to Chris a bit. You guys ROCK, sorry I didn't get to see your show. I had mentioned that I will be in Glasgow at the end of Nov. Was hoping that it would be when you were playing there, but will miss your show by two days. Catch ya next time 'round.

Where: Chicago

When: Sept. 30

We are huge fans of The Hives! We were walking down Clark St. on a beautiful Chicago morning past The Metro where we were anxious to see them play that night.
Dr. Matt Destruction gets off the bus and we got our pics taken with him under the sign. We also had the pleasure of walking with him for about 3 blocks while he was looking for a place to buy nicotine. We love you Dr. Destruction and thank you for the guitar pick! It was an awesome show & we can't wait to see you all again.
