The best venue in Melbourne hosting the best live band in the world! What can I say, only 2 hours of your new favourite band...
After the show we were so pumped and went out to a bar and made them play Hives CDs all night.
The only problem with seeing a Hives show is the knowledge that every single concert you go to after that show will never be as good.

I can't wait for you to come back to Australia.

I previously sent in my story of the best show I'd ever been to being the last time the Hives were at the 9:30 club for the Tyrannosaurus Hives release. That standing was put to shame by the insane show this week at the Black Cat. I was also able to bring my sister to her first Hives show and in doing so, recruited another die hard fan. The band was very nice and put up with us getting all of our merch signed. Thanks guys, you're the best

Well, my story is that you guys came to the ACC in Toronto and my friend and I were not to close to the stage , we werent on the floor. For your last song you told all the people on the floor to come closer and so we decided to get on the floor, because we were annoyed by the people who werent taking advantage of their good seats being able to go near you. So we jolted past the security guard, then got pulled back, so we sat down then tryed again and about 10 other times until the lady screamed at us and pulled us back to the seats. Lucky her us being pests went back for another try, thinking jumping over the railing was smart , but really wasnt. The SAME lady got us and made us stay where we were , and if we came back again would have been kicked out. Whatever we did'nt get where we wanted, but you guys were SO. Awesome stage appearance . I loved it :D ! Hopefully we'll make it to the floor next time :P .

Hi Hives!!

So I went to Madison Sq Garden to see the Maroon 5 concert, and while I was sipping my soda, this group I knew nothing about "The Hives" came on. I went from bopping calmly in my seat..sippin my straw... to (within maybe 20 seconds) out of my seat dancing and screaming!
It was like love at first.. well... note. The energy and music of The Hives is amazing!!!! It truly went to quickly. I got so into it, I forgot I was actually there to see another band! (Sorry Maroon5!)
So when I got home I immediately went on ITunes and bought every Hives song they have and continued my party! I'm now officially hooked!! I really hope you guys come back to New York City - right now! I hope It's not too late, it's too soon - Or is it?...


Loving you guys,

New York, NY
