Wow, just returned to Grand Rapids after the show (stayed overnight at a hotel in the area). This was my fourth ABB show I attended, and this year, I brought my 10 year old son Matthias along. We are actually from Germany, but my wife is from Michigan, and we come to visit the in-laws every summer in August. I always try to catch a ABB show during our stay.
It was a great experience for my son. His first concert ever, and we were right in the first row right in the middle. Before the ABB concert started, he had already caught 3 drum sticks. During the show, he was able to get to guitar picks of Warren. He was a happy camper.
The show itself was great, as usual. The sound was really nice, from the very beginning. The band was tight and in good form. The played a nice set list, and I just love it when they start the show with “Don’t Want You No More/It’s Not My Cross to Bear”.
Here’s the setlist:
Don’t Want You No More>
It’s Not My Cross to Bear
Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More
Woman Across the River
Maydell (long version)
High Cost of Low Living
In Memory of Elizabeth Reed/Drum Solo
Soulshine (with Larry McCray on guitar as well as Steve McCray on drums)
Unfortunaly, the first CD of my set which I purchased after the show won’t play right after track 4. Anyone else having problems with the CD-R’s from that show?
