I am just having a flashback to all the "Fletch Stretch" moments as my friend and I named them!! OMFG! How wonderful it was to see him (when I wasn't melting over anything Dave was shaking about), to see Fletch up there doing his little bends, claps, points, kicks, etc.! It was hilarious and magical at the same time! He is a frigging hoot to watch when you can peel your eyes away from Dave and Martin! I want a Fletch Cam sometime for an entire show!! OMG! I am still giggling! So amazing!

But, to agree with everyone, as a Bay Area native and a fan since the early 80's, it breaks my heart every time they give us the few shows we get, but they play at Shoreline. The venue is a total disaster, totally agree. But, alas, the big stars play there because it's big and if you're only going to give our area one show (GRRRR!!), then it will get chosen every time. I recall one tour they played Shoreline, Concord and up to Sacramento. It was incredible to see them three times on that tour, and the people of NorCal got shown some love. Not sure on why we only got the one night, but since it's been so long between visits, I'm going to sit back and enjoy what they gave me.

Yes! I thought the same thing about Fletch,he's really fun to watch,he's just there doing his own thing...and bringing the hype! I hope someone puts together a YouTube montage of fletch at shows. It IS hard not to watch Dave's hips though!

Seriously! Definitely hard to look anywhere else but after 30 or so years I could take a break to admire all that is The Fletch!!
