This is the first time I have seen the band in a smaller venue (3200 seats) and it gave me a sense of what it must have been like to see the them play venues like the Fillmore in the early 70’s. There was a good cross section of people spanning the generations over the past 37 years and the crowd was enthusiastic. The Band played off their enthusiasm, Gregg even signed a picture a fan brought down to the front of the stage.

I wanted to say something about this venue, this is the first time I have seen the Band where security didn’t hassle the crowd about getting up and dancing, also a bunch of fans walked down to the front of the stage and weren’t told to go and sit down. That combined with the fact there isn’t a bad seat in the place, makes this a great concert venue. I hope the Band makes this a regular stop every year.

It was a good show, solid guitar interplay, the rythym section rocked the whole night. Gregg sounded great. I liked the new funky arrangement for Done Somebody Wrong and One Way Out was played just like they did at the Fillmore in 71. A nice mix of old and new. Here is the setlist:

Hot ‘Lanta
Done Somedody Wrong
Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’
Woman Across The River
Old Before My Time
Come and Go Blues
Who’s Been Talking
Midnight Rider
High Cost of Low Living
Every Hungry Woman
Into The Mystic
Elizabeth Reed
Encore: One Way Out

When the show was over Gregg stayed and signed autographs at stage front for almost 25 minutes. Derek and Marc also came out and signed a few and both went into the lobby signed, chatted and posed for pictures with fans. I also saw Oteil in the lobby with a group of people around him. When was the last time you saw a Hall of Fame band hang out with fans after a show??
