Goo Goo Dolls and Counting Crows

Kevin was able to get us tickets to the Goo Goo Dolls and Counting Crows show last night! This co-headlining tour started last night at the Clark County Amp. Augustana opened the show, which we missed due to traffic and munching on yummy chicken strips and fries. No worries there though, the food was much more satisfying than hearing the opening band. Upon entering the venue we headed to our 18th row seats, center section! I was pleasantly surprised to see Goo Goo Dolls start off the show since I was hoping Counting Crows would come on last. Goo Goo Dolls put on a surprisingly good show and had great sound. Below is the set list. Lots of songs from their new album but they did play quite a few that I knew, which was cool.

Goo Goo Dolls Set List:
Stay With you
Feel the Silence
Black Balloon
When You're Gone
Tucked Away
January Friend
Better Days
Without You Here
Let Love In
Give A Little Bit
it sucks to be you

Counting Crows came out second and opened with a great song! I was absolutely stunned to see how large Adam Duritz had gotten! Holy crap that guy must weigh 250, at least! Anyway, I enjoy the set, albeit the didn't play some of the songs I wanted to here like "Anna Begins", "Rain King", and "Up All Night."

Counting Crows Set List:
Recovering the Satellites
Hard Candy
Mrs. Potter Lullaby
Mr. Jones
Goodnight Elizabeth
All My Friends
St. Robinson
Richard Manuel is Dead
Long December
Hanging Around

Encore: Holiday in Spain

Concert rating: 8 (only because I didn't hear my favorites!)

Eagles of Death Metal and The Black Crowes

This was concert weekend! Saw Eagles of Death Metal at the Crystal Ballroom on Friday night and The Black Crowes at the Clark County Amphitheater on Sunday night.

Friday night's show was awesome, minus the first two opening bands, The Giraffes and the Mediam. Both were awful and The Giraffes involved a lot of spitting and bad lead singer dancing. EODM just totally rocked and my favorite song now has got to be Cherry Cola. I just love the rock/pop feel to it. Great for dancing and getting into a fight! Ha! Haven't found a set list yet so I'll post one once I find one.

On to Sunday night's hippie attended show with The Black Crowes. We didn't watch the two opening bands and just joined the show from our awesome 4th row seats to jam along for 2 hours with the Crowes and Robert Randolph and the Family Band. This show was completely different from when we saw them last year at the Gorge with Tom Petty. I guess when you aren't the headliner you have to play your standby favorites. When you headline the show, you can jam away and people will love it. Great show and great seats! Thanks Kevin!
Set List:
Give Peace A Chance -> Seeing Things
Stare It Cold -> Give Peace A Chance
Space Captain
She Talks To Angels
Song Of Love
Downtown Money Waster ->
Share The Ride ->
Mellow Down Easy
It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry
