Favourite balloon drop moment?
Sufjan at RFH.
They didn't move on in anyway though. They're just the same and it's become a bit dull now.
They've changed things up for this year's tour though apparently.
I wasn't there, but the one at LCD Soundsystem's last gig looked pretty spectacular.
on the coda of New York, I Love You. perfect
also flaming lips obv obv obv
at their last show at Alexandra Palace
3 years ago now? Anyway the night I went they played Range Life last and dropped about 10 of these enormous colourful balloons. Wonderful stuff
dropped BEACH BALLS on their last tour.
for the It's Blitz! tour, Yeah Yeah Yeahs had these giant inflatable eyeballs that they brought around with them. Can't remember what song they got dropped into the crowd, but I remember at Reading it being seriously windy and them just getting blown to the side straightaway :P
Pop tour at the old Wembley - they all walked out of a giant lemon that had turned into a glitter ball. It was fucking amazing.

you look up at the netting above to see whether there's going to be a balloon drop, or you look to the sides of the stage for fake snow/glitter cannons
