Daughtry and "Batman"

This morning, I realized I'd forgotten to mention something random that happened at Daughtry's show at 1st Mariner Arena Thursday (read the review here).

Before Daughtry's set started, a white sheet was hung around the stage, and squiggles and other shapes were projected onto it (Windows screen saver style). Meanwhile, the speakers played the theme to the original "Batman" movie -- for a few minutes.

It was totally random, and in hindsight, I kinda got a kick out of it. I wonder if other people in the crowd picked up on it.

The use of the Batman theme is not really random :) Batman is Chris' favorite comic character and he has a Batman mike stand to prove it. Check last year's ComicCon in CA for pics of Chris & Joey in Batman headgear :)

Thanks for mentioning that. It was a simple but cool opening. I remember thinking that it really did the trick for building a little suspense.
