they were only allowed to play for 50 minutes due the rain delays and allowing other bands to play. complete BS, they let Sweet play for an hour i believe.

with that being said, they better play a proper gig in Detroit as they were on fire

Great stuff. Amazing show! Dropped the $25 for vip and it was well worth it to be front and center. I will post a bunch of vids and pics a bit later

Wow, awesome!! They are really tight and into it. Good to see them still having fun and Dave's voice is better than ever. I love the carnival vibe with the ferris wheel, they seem right at home. Thanks for the videos and the photos of this show, they are really good. Cheers!!!

Well,I recognized Dave and Tommy before the show watching sweet....I went over to say hello quickly. Dave and Tommy were having a blast watching sweet doing bar room blitz, etc. Sounded like a mats greatest hits while we wuz drunk album. Really funny. Really fun.

The show was fantastic, but kind of short. I've been a huge fan for years but I have never seen the live show before. This was kind of a tough venue with threatening weather and fish flies, but what a show. My 16 year old son came with me and appreciated the show as much as I did. Epic.
