What an incredible experience. Wow. The music just came alive. There were no sound issues at all in this hall. Everything was well balanced. The setlist was the same obviously since those are the songs they rehearsed in such a short time. It was short but definitely worth my fly in and fly back the same day.
They announced no cameras, recording, or cell phones. I only took 1 photo at the end and it was from across the stage.

Tall Tales For Spring
Ordinary Day
Who's To Say
A Thousand Miles
The Marching Line
White Houses

It really was. There were so many moments where I lost my breath. Sadly, a recording could never emulate actually being there. Well maybe if you were hooked directly to the soundboard. Definitely make plans for the one in NC in Oct.

Well. It's not the best but as fans I am sure you are all happy to hear it anyway, right? If anyone happens to be a sound engineer or just has the knowledge and can fix it up, go for it.

It was 1000 times better than this but I am sure you all can appreciate it. So honored to have been able to have been there. I would like to hear your feedback. I think my favorite was Who's To Say it always tears me up but this was just  :o 

And big thanks to Katia for uploading them and for this site!! Loveyoulongtime!!

Thanks for the recordings! And yes, I agree: it's Who's To Say at its best. It has the sense of urgency that I haven't heard before.

Floating on the sea, stars are watching me. Currents take me out, what will be will be.
