Steve's Show Notes (edited from his Crowesbase post):
- BR549 opened
- worst venue of the 1st 7 shows, rowdy crowd, only fair vs. stellar acoustics...
- Well, "Under A Mountain" and "Sometimes Salvation" were about the only things that went right with this show (okay, and a RARE "Waitin'
Guilty"), but this show had a weird vibe from the get-go...rent-a-cops outside preventing 'enjoying nature' to the rowdy crowd on the verge of a
rumble, it's my humble opinion that the band recognized this with the encore, which SCREAMS early-mid '98 in it's song selection. Fortunately,
the next night was the exact opposite
Chris'ism (during "Encore Break"):
- "Don't know if you knew this, but we're hap -- we were really lucky to have BR549 play with us because Chuck, uh the singer and guitar player
on this side, he was uh almost going to be one of the Harlem Globetrotters. And that's a true story, guaranteed."
- Tape flip during the first few seconds of "Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye" - seamlessly spliced, but a few seconds of music lost.
- Tape flip during the applause after "Good Friday" - seamlessly spliced, no music lost.
