I was impressed with this show...and tho the new material is a bit of a blur overall there were definitely some tasty tracks in that set that will more-than-likely stand the test of time and be standards on future set lists/tours. there were even a a few times when the hairs stood up on my arm. This is always a good sign for the Cap'n!. On the sweet/keeper side of things "Weakness" comes to mind immediately. Classic Todd with heartfely lyrics and visible emotion. Some of the other tunes, like Gun and Strike (fist pump tune) were good in concert but for a pop sap like me, probably won't be tunes I'll ever migrate to. There were a lot of broken strings tonight...the computer failed again at the intro to _______ and TR went over and dinked with it for a sec as everyone scratched their head. All of the sudden....it started working and the tune went off without further ado. Near the end of the Arena set list TR took another backward tumble into the amps and then looked a bit flustered when the young "cherub" roadie ran out like he was gonna pick him up off the floor. LOL.
10 mins or so after the show the ushers booted the stragglers/autograph seekers out of the venue...and that effort thinned out the crowd overall. However, as usually happens, a few folks hung around next the stage exit and Jessie and TR/the band finally made an appearance/posed/signed autographs as they walked from the venue to their hotel nearby.
Personal thanks go out to Jesse for the backstage hospitality.
All-in-all, a splendid Rock n Roll evening in the mountains!
