Ladies and gentlemen, thank you all so much for the love and support. It’s pretty damn amazing to have the Fillmore sold out.
If this was Back to the Future, and I was able to go back and tell high school Gio that he would sell out the Fillmore… by playing upright bass… in a string band… with Ben & Alex & Joe (he wouldn’t have a frame of reference for Phil or Ryan) he would punch me and call me a liar.
Then he would help me up, because he’d be curious and enticed – despite the sheer outlandishness of the claim – because selling out the Fillmore would be just too damn amazing.
So – thanks. Thanks for the support in the Bay Area from The House of Shields to Amnesia, to PAs getting stolen, to Haight street house parties to raise money to get PAs back, to Hardly Strictly, to Outside Lands, to Slim’s, to Great American Music Hall, and now, the Fillmore.
If we can keep steady on this trajectory, we’ll see you in a few years at AT&T park.
You are all the greatest fans and friends and family of all time, and we love you. Can’t wait to throw down a huge party on Friday.
See you there.
