I was at the VIP in London too. Pretty swanky having it at Museum London. It rawked! :)
As for the no-alcohol in the PIT, that's a decision by the venue. Both Oshawa and London are run by same company (Global Spectrum) and they often do that at their shows. (did same thing for that RF errr "boy bands acting tough" show...not that I went to that one! HA!)
Hamilton was okay for beer in their PIT area.
Loved having EC and ECB back to Canada.
No we weren't able to drink in the pit either but we stocked up on em before the show also I know we would have spilt it all over people if we did have them with everyone jumping and pushing
were you allowed to drink in the pit? we were in the pit in Oshawa and there was no alcohol allowed in pit. Quite disappointing after paying $200/ticket.
