The crowd was well versed and not misled, intelligent/older and comfortable to be a part of. The show: what more can I say that hasn't already been reckoned with? Utopia band mates were better prepared than the earlier shows - from what I read - and they were obvious of the Akron connection. They played with heart and even though Jessie never picked up a guitar nor was the bass played by Kasim....they filled in with accurate percussion, keys, and vocals. Kevin, Ralph, and John -- thanks for the performance of a lifetime. A few sour or flat notes ( not many ).....but I am way on the other side of bashing this event. It was a dream of a night.
Again, and as always, thanks Todd ( nice guitar work )...., and to everyone who assisted and brought this gig together. From section three in the lower loge balcony: it was an appreciated vantage point. See you on the Initiation/Faithful Tour ( hint....hint )
