Hmmm… we are definitely seeing this show differently. It appears I am the only one, umm.. disappointed.
Probably the most “frustrating” show I can ever remember.
The good… the set list ( even with all of the covers), Dave’s Iggy Pop impersonation, Winston amazingly picking things up quickly, Michael on the drums is always a treat.
I don’t care that Dave was having guitar issues, hey it’s rock and roll and that happens. I don’t care that the sound could have been better.
The bad.. .I was hoping Dave would say something like ( frustrated he didn’t ) .. “hey, we have a new CD –Delayed reaction, thanks for coming to the CD release party. “ But, not one mention of the new CD.
But; ultimately Dave’s antics ruined the show for me. He walked off stage, was animatedly chewing someone out a number of times (we were right in front of Winston, we could see, couldn’t hear) etc… Instead of being the “leader” and saying .. “hey, sorry my gear isn’t working but we are going to give it a go” -- he acted like a petulant little child.
At one point, I was hoping Dan or Michael would have said something to him/ “kicked him in the pants” … whatever ** told him to quick whining and get his “stuff” together. (Eventually he did but to late )
We decided Friday before the show that we would go to St. Cloud on Saturday as the kids were away; but after the show we bagged it.
If you came from out of town, hopefully you saw the entry show ( outstanding !!) or the gig in St. Cloud went better. Although, sitting at a SA concert is only slightly better than seeing them in a mall.
No worries; really, however. I will be at the next show, still love 'em.
