Started out hot, with a great opening Jack Straw, the longest auidience love-fest sing-along i've ever seen, to Not Fade Away --> great Brokedown Palace encore.

Great show, I remember a lighting storm moved through and seeing everyone on the metal bleachers at the opposite end of the stage headed for the grass hill below, which was off limits.

It was a great show. It was bitter sweet since it was the last show I saw Brent play and it was in my home state. In a way I am glad it rained because it was Hot! But the lightning was something else. I remember seening one blast that had 6 or 8 bolts pulse in the same track. One bolt blew out a generator next to the stage and cut the power. I thought that it was amazing that they picked the song up (Promised Land) right where they were cut off. It was funny that Bob forgot the words. Really strong playing throughout.

Ditto to Brooke's comments. I was in town on business and first show after a 4 year hiatus. ;^))

Oh the lightning and sliding down the grass. It seemed the lightning was hitting right behind the stage, it was jammin right along with "Drums" and Bruce was great!!and I remember peeing in the woods.

The BANG!!!! ......stage went black.....(in the middle of promised land) and the boys picked up right were they left off.

The lighning show scared the piss out of us on the bleachers. The boys picked it up RIGHT where they left off in Promised Land after a 7-10 minute hiatus. the first big BOOM was during Bird song and the fans rushed the field down a grassy hill. I recal a fabulous Other One. It was a nice trip after a 10 hour ride from tuscaloosa.

Could have sworn they slipped in a verse of Looks Like Rain as the lighting came from the southwest--probably dreamed that

It was HOT! Firehoses used in the parking lot to help keep us cool. The lightning! People sliding down the grass! Power out during Promised Land and the band picking it up where they left off! Very fun!

During a beautiful Playing>Uncle John's college jocks behind me started whooping and hollering. One jock's girlfriend made them shut up so she could hear, and I thought, "Good for her." half way through Uncle John, she tapped me on the shoulder and asked the name of the song. She actually wrote it down, and asked what record she could find it on. Then she listened some more, and said, "That's the most beautiful song I've ever heard."
I love seeing someone "get it".

Currently available on YouTube as the most recent "Shakedown Stream".

These days they would not allow the show to continue with lightning that close, and for good reason.
