The entire show seemed blocked like a stage production with the guitarists running around the stage to take pre-assigned spots to contort themselves around their instruments, do whatever that heavy metal rocking band-and-forth thing is called, or climb all over equipment. Now that everyone has a camera in her/his pocket they paired, tripled, and in this case quadrupled up so people in the front rows could get good photos.

I was in on a $20 lawn ticket. The seats were packed and the lawn was full but not crowded. With such cheap tickets and what I think is their last tour, I’m surprised they didn’t sell out.

I did recognize some songs but what really surprised me was the number of ballads. I enjoyed the rockin’ stuff but the ballads made me long for hair metal bands. I guess, ummmm, every rose has its thorn but this show just had a good half-dozen in the middle of the set. Other than that, it was fun.

Shoba would have had a good time.
