copy and paste from ford's board..........and was great to see you spinny!!!
WOW!!!! So happy I did this!!
As suspected Ford did not disappoint last night...................the opener got ill (hospital ill in fact but supposedly he is ok) but that meant we got extended ford - I think everyone in the place was very happy to hear of the poor dude's misfortune!! So we got two sets - awesome!
Great little venue................good staff and you could tell the owners get it
I was with friends and generally hanging out so i didn't write down a setlist but highlights from what I remember (yup we did get a little carried away...............)
Poison was the opener - this as with all the new stuff was great to hear live
Miss Lilly was AWESOME!!!! Ford was so into it - was really great to see
Requiem - not sure why I wasn't expecting it but it caught me off guard and was a very powerful performance
Decimate - absolutely one of the highlights - the song in and of itself but this ac/dc cover as a ballad was one of the most amazing things I have ever heard in 50 years of attending gigs.............just absolute brilliance
Waiting For the Storm - I begrudgingly took this off the set list for house gig I - it was clear after last night that was a big mistake (incidentally I have passed the baton back to Ford for part II - that was a complete nightmare trying to pick just 12 songs lol!)
the looping was as usual top notch and so we got stellar performances of the mainstays like go to hell song for the road etc - you could tell the crowd loved all of them
great rendition of its the economy
philly boy was absolutely fantastic and every time as the closer was incredibly powerful
joey love was tremendous - I think he added a great spark but was subtle enough to not intrude on ford's brilliance - as I mentioned the boys are having a great tour and were all in very good spirits - stayed far too late without any dinner............a bit of a mistake!
Amusingly I ran into ford on the elevator on our way to brekafast just now.............if it wasn't to see one of my very best friends I would never have mustered the will power to make it down but we had a nice little cup of coffee and a good chat
they are off to nashville to see ingrid michaelson tonight - a bit jealous - but not of the drive in front of them!!!
cannot wait for next sunday.................more to come! oh and we hired a new camera dude this year - hoping he has a little more creativity than the knucklehead from last year! fingers crossed..............
some crappy berry photos..............my bud had a serious camera so hoping he got some good shots
