I agree that the 2020 tour is addition by subtraction for the reasons you cited -- particularly more rehearsal time for a cleaner show out of the gate.
  3. Greektown Casino would be the closest. As a former Detroiter, I'd consider staying in Windsor and taking the Tunnel Bus.

  4. RIP Chester, PA show (their sacred sod will no longer suffer the savagery of drum corps tarps and prop-a-palooza!) replaced by an impressive TEN CORPS lineup Wednesday 7/29 at MetLife!

  5. Seems like they are shortening the tour (skipping Premiere in Detroit) to stay close to home, likely perform in July 4th parades (Tour de Jerséy?) and save money. For all intents and purposes, The Cadets aren't going on tour until July 9th. Then they'll be in 15 shows before Indy, similar to the number of performances for all other WC corps.
  6. Number of scheduled performances before 7/9 -- interesting to see how they will be scored out of the gate. This leaves no room for error on design.

  9. 2015 Blue Devils (Ink) -- At the time, I was unfamiliar with Into The Woods. Now having seen multiple productions, I have a much greater appreciation for this show and see why it bested Inferno.
  10. Yep. Par for the course. When YEA disbanded C2 last November, Doug Rutherford's announcement was all about "survival of the Cadets" with no acknowledgement given or appreciation shown to C2 members, staff and volunteers.
  11. If they were texting during the show, then they must not have AT&T or T-Mobile, because that stadium is a dead zone for anyone with those carriers :)
