East Troy, Wisconsin
Tapers' Note: An attempt was made by several long-time non-profit tapers to dialogue with the PJ organization at today's show in Alpine Valley about the taping situation. The bottom line is, no external mics are allowed. Period. DAT's, pre-amps, and other high-end recording equipment is also not permitted. However, this is NOT universely enforced, as someone was spotted with a reel-to-reel recorder up in the lawn area, and while you may get your equipment past security, you run the risk of being tackled mid-show by PJ security (which happened to someone tonight). If you have a little hand-held walkman, don't expect a problem getting it in, but everyone else should just expect to stealth as you always have and abandon any hope of walking in with equipment openly. Tapers are going to continue to try to work things out with the PJ crew over the next few shows, but right now it seems that someone has decided that DAT = commercial bootlegger (when in fact the presence of good-quality tapes of shows would actually kill the market for commercial bootlegs...) We'll keep you posted.

Alpine Valley: setlist is in: See the Concert Chronology and now notes. [Thanks to Jon and Carl Sylvester]

San Diego: We know. You've all got Ten Club tickets, but no one, not Cox Arena, not Ticketmaster, has a seating diagram for the floor. Well, thanks to Karen Bilotti, who went down to the Arena today and wrote down what the floor looks like IN DETAIL (since the arena says they don't hand out diagrams of the floor seating!), we've been able to put together a seating diagram for the floor, so you can see just how good your seats are! Check out the San Diego listing in Going Mobile, and we vote that we all find her that night and buy that woman a beer or two or three!! Thanks, Karen!!!

And, a new Song of the Month for you to enjoy!

Sunday, June 14, 1998:
Tibetan Freedom Concert
Well, it's over. Notes from our reporter 'out there in the fields,' setlist and cybercast screenshots in the Concert Chronology. [Props to Mari Gonzales - we love ya, babe!]

Jeff and Flea are scheduled for the Tibet 98 chatroom at approx. 5:30 p.m. EDT today.

PJ is scheduled to perform at 6:41 pm EDT (time revised) at today's Tibetan Freedom Concert. Our thoughts are with those who were injured yesterday. Today's weather looks more optimistic and the show is on. Tibet98 has posted a new schedule, with Sonic Youth, Radiohead and R.E.M. moved to today.

A new Featured Photo of the Moment! [Thanks to ninell for tipping us off about this one!]

First-time PJ (or otherwise) concertgoer? By popular demand, check out our Show Survival Guide.

Also, added a few questions to the 1998 Tour/Ticket FAQ.

Finally...going on the road this summer? Want a mini-guide of Going Mobile that you can take with you? Try out our Portable Going Mobile Mini-Guide and let us know what you think. This is an experiment - we've only done the Show Survival Guide and the first three dates of the tour thus far - but if you like it, let us know, and we'll do the rest of the tour!

TFC: Sonicnet will be running another cybercast of the Tibetan Freedom Concerts this weekend. MTV will be running a VERY limited special, so your best bet for live coverage is to register with Sonicnet now and get RealAudio installed and pray they do better than they did last year. Click on the banner above to visit the site, register, get your software, and get ready for the weekend. And while you're there, you might find it interesting to read up on the political situation in Tibet and the reason behind the concerts.
Tuesday, June 9, 1998:
Las Vegas: Venue change, from Sam Boyd Stadium to Thomas & Mack Center. All tickets will be honored, you do not need to exchange them. Why the change? Anything from the weather to the fact that the show didn't sell well enough to justify the stadium. Noted in Going Mobile. [Thanks to Tom Jones]
Monday, June 8, 1998:
Montreal: Ten Club tickets are arriving. In Ten Club Ticket Status. [Thanks to Eric Okurowski]

If you haven't noticed, the 1998 Tour section of On The Road is now open for business. Once the tour starts, you'll want to be referring to that instead of Going Mobile - take a look and check it out!

Five beautiful, old posters [THANKS, Jon!] added to memorabilia and linked from the Concert Chronology.

Numerous updates to the Concert Chronology, including:

Note and Help: Some discrepancies have surfaced regarding some 1991 shows, bringing into question dates, locations and venues. If you attended these shows or have clippings, ticket stubs or recordings, please take a look and see if you can help resolve these. The truth is out there!! :)
  • 11/04/91 listed at The Cage at Amherst, MA, but apparently shows are not held at the Curry Hicks Cage (The Cage), but at the Student Union Ballroom at UMass.
  • 11/07/91 listed at The Haunt at Ithaca, NY, but our poster scan for The Haunt states Nov. 4 as the date.
  • To add to the confusion, a ticket stub has surfaced dated 11/07/91 for a show at the Landmark Theater in Syracuse, NY.
    HELP!! [and thanks to Matt Twarog and Dan DeBeer for this info!]
