Dont bother trying to find a recording. Music Fest doesnt allow anyone to record and instant live wasnt there. Shouldve just played at Mud Island
I was at this show. Me and my girlfriend actually got to the stage pretty quickly after the gates opened for Derek Trucks Band to get front row and we didn’t leave. The show was amazing. I could tell it was going to be a good one when they opened with Hot ‘Lanta. Woman Across the River, The Night They Drove Ol Dixie Down, and Dreams were among my favorites. Of course, the atmosphere could have been a little better. There were too many guards but the majority of them were nice to us and they gave up with the camera thing. The crowd around us was disappointing on one side and really energized on the other. It was kind of irritating for people that close to the stage to have their arms crossed or their hands in their pockets like they didn’t want to be there. Really though, it was all about the performance and they did a great job. Thanks for another great one!
Good show. Kinda slow until a great Dreams with Warren on the extended solo, followed by a BHW/Other One Jam that was really energetic! Warren was really “on” , both with the Mule and the ABB.
However, the atmosphere & venue were probably the worst of any ABB show I’ve attended. It’s hard to enjoy the music with masses of noisy people pressed against you and with the fear of tripping on all the garbage thrown on the ground.
It was also the most annoying security, and I’m not one to commonly complain about such things. They made such a big deal about picture taking that Jerry Lee Lewis stopped his set twice because the audience was so distracted by the over-enthusiasm of security.
The newspaper said it was beacause of a fight; I was right there – no fight, only disposable cameras!
I’ll try to see the greatest band in the land again this summer, but not at a festival like this!
