I considered it, but I doubt my girlfriend will be in Pittsburgh over the summer, so there goes the short drive. :\

such a beautiful venue

It really is. One of my favorites. I know the shows aren't usually the best, but I can't not go to this one every year. I always have a great time.

Its on a freaking wednesday, I would have to take off then and Thursday, just to make it from St Louis. Unfortunately I have a bulk of vacation penciled in for my honeymoon in november, otherwise I'd probably do it.

I hear ya, Wednesday kills it for most. You gotta make it eventually though. Just a great venue all around.

It really is odd how a venue can have a track record for weak sets. Hopefully Blossom is on its way up in that department.

I hope every Cavs fan is paying attention to this season. This is one not to forget. They are fucking 53-13. They have come back from huge deficits, blown teams out, only lost 1 time at home, and have the best record against Western teams.

It will be. For instance, Lee just got rocked by Texas... think about it, they play Texas early in the season, Lee doesn't want to show them everything he's got in a worthless spring training game.

We basically have an 8 man rotation. We're gonna see alot of guys in the 5 spot until they get it right.

2003, 2004 and 2008 were good sets. 2006 was typical for that tour. 2005 and 2007 were really weak.

I mean, it's definitely a matter of opinion. Let's just say I don't ever expect too much at Blossom. I always have a great time though. It's the perfect example at how a venue makes all the difference in the world.

As far as Ohio goes, you could switch all the Riverbend sets (which tend to be stronger) with the Blossom shows (venue is much nicer) and you'd have some pretty fantastic shows all around (sets, performances and beautiful venue).

yeah it was a good show. the venue is nice cause its small. he started with the band, then did some solo stuff, then ended with the band. played almost 3 hours. he was really funny - kept talking to the audience and making up songs randomly - and even took a few requests.

PM and YNK aren't good enough for you Monica? ; ) IMO, the setlist tonight was pretty good, besides the encore. That being said, I hope they don't mail it in tomorrow at Blossom. With my luck, they probably will. :(
I just hope YNK might carry over (I've never seen it live) and that maybe Shotgun will debut. I know I'm obviously gonna hear 8-9 big whiskey songs, I'm just worried that I'll get gyped on the older songs. I'm scared that instead of getting YNK, Jimi, OSW, Nancies, Warehouse, LIOG, Ants, Two Step, etc., I'll get Everyshow, Smooth Rider, Bayou, WAYG, an so forth.

Not a bad show! My 8th-row-center seats sure helped. Watchtower was supposed to close the encore but was cut due to curfew.
