    My girlfriend and I went to see their reunion tour when they came through Pittsburgh this past Friday, the 14th. While we were standing in line, people from T-Mobile were passing out piece of paper where you filled out your name and phone number and they would randomly draw 10 or 15 people for a meet and greet before the show. Not thinking much of it, we both filled one out and turned them in. My girlfriend went to buy some merch and came to back me saying that we needed to get to the T-Mobile tent, NOW! I was in disbelief, completely. We got there, got wrist bands and waited a little bit. Then we were lead backstage, waited some more and then there they were. These were the guys who made me want to pick up a guitar, who got me into punk rock. They signed our tickets and we got pictures with them. Totally incredible. It was an incredible show, I have been listening to them for at least 10 years and never got a chance to see them. It was a child hood dream come true.

    Here are the pictures..

    Awesome!

    Thats to cool! I will have to check the picture out later. It will not show up on my work computer. They have been my favorite band for quite some time, since I was really young. I will miss out on their tour now, but will be sure to check them out after they release the new album and tour to support that.
    Congrats again!

    Indeed.
    Christ I am getting old. I had to go google them… :eek:
    I guess one of the benefits of MacRumors is old farts like me get some idea of what is going on in popular culture.
    :D

    I'm only 20, so maybe anyone over 30 or 35 may not know who they are.

    There's always a few exceptions to the rule. I had no idea who the opening band was. Hope I didn't offend anyone.

    He looked incredible, actually. No visible burn marks or scars of any kind.

    If you haven't heard yet, he did an incredible drum solo. Go to youtube and search for it. It will blow your mind.

    Although I don't have any of their songs, I pretty much went through '02-'03 listening to them, Linkin Park, and Sum 41.
    I used to love them...now, not so much.

    The only reason I knew who they were was because I used to know this complete ditz who thought the sun rose and set on them. I had a listen and can't stand that style..

    But, OP, congrats :)

    To me that is power pop not punk rock, but to each their own.
