- Set 1:
$ with the "Tamborine Ninja".
* with Little Brother on vocals.
Reviews The show was so amazing....One of the highlights was when Marc actually snuck off the stage and sang some of Crazy Game Of Poker from the standing audience....Little Brother coming in at the end was kind of cool...the fire on the mountain in destination also was amazing...LOVED IT -blackrock5 November 26, 2005
Wow... what a rediculously amazing show. This was my second concert, (my first was U2), but my first O.A.R. One of the best if not THE best nights of my life. I was a little disappointed at thr turnout, but I accredit that to everyone being away for Thanksgiving. BTW Little Brother as the opener was one of the worst hours of my life. First of all rap sucks live, but then on top of that Little Brother was just bad in the first palce live or not. Everyone was waiting for them to end so the real show could go on stage.
52-50- Honestly I heated the song on the CD but it was ROCKIN' live.
One Shot- Lots of energy really got the crowd into the show.
Wonderful Day- This is my favorite O.A.R. song so I was soooo excited when the played it. So much energy and the guys were REALLY into it, especially Marc.
Hey Girl- Marc really got the crowd involved and it was very loud. The fans that did show up filled about 80% of the arena and knew the words to almost every song.
Lay Down- Just a great song with an island theme, got the whole place dancing.
King of the thing- More of the same great energy that O.A.R. has.
59th street- Honestly, not my favorite song, but it rocked anyway.
City on Down- The energy was at its height during City on Down and it was awesome.
Patiently- Marc seemed to get really emotional as he dedicated the song not only to Michael but a girl named Julie Nagel who died in a car accident in their home town of Rockville, Maryland. There was a group of people crying on the floor during this song, obviously friends of Julie.
About Mr. Brown- Marc seemed like he loved telling the story of Mr. Brown during this one and was smiling throughout.
Black Rock- What can I say but amazing.
Footsteps- Some of the younger fans had no clue about this one. Great surprise.
Heard the World- most likely the best song live of of SOAS.
Delicate Few- C-L-A-S-S-I-C, So amazing, played with a realy fast tempo, definitely changed it up. I have a feeling their working on improving the song like they have done many others and will put the improved version on their next CD.
I feel Home- everyone wanted this one so badly, and they gave it to us. It was so awesome.
Dakota- was very good live, but this is the only song I preferred on the CD rather then live.
Love and Memories- Surprisingly good live. Much better and more energy then expected.
Crazy Game of Poker- The best. The only thing that screwed it up was that goddamn Little Brother came on, and "freestyled" with O.A.R. I have one thing to say about Little Brother, THEY SUCK.
Before the show Marc wrned us that it was going to be a late night and it WAS. Show lasted of 2 1/2 hours. I REALLY got my moneys worth. The show was really all about Marc. He didn't really get the other guys involved especially Benj. At one point Benj and Jerry were flicking the caps from their bottles of wated at eachother. Michael Paris on the keys was really into it and seemed to know all the words to the songs. I was really surprised that they played an extra long show because they have on on the 26th, but I weasn't mad. Amazing show, Amazing band. -danielos38 November 26, 2005
Amazing show...Started out a bit rough with some new stuff, but turned out to be soooo good in the end. Consider myself lucky to have heard Patiently performed live... -bubbaco2001 November 26, 2005
This was my 5th show and it was one of the best. I thought the setlist was amazing and they played some of the new tunes along with the old classics. My favorite song had to be Destination or Heard the World. I loved how they opened with 52-50. It was nice to see Jerry again becuase at the last show i went to (at portsmouth) he wasnt there becuase his wife went into labor. The guys seemed to be into the concert and it was a great show. -raw45 November 27, 2005
it was a good show, but not their best. i guess maybe i was expecting more since it was basically a homecoming show for them......
it wasn't really longer than any other concert.....they may have squeezed one extra song in there. to me, it didn't seem like they played 19 songs.....
i ordered the instantlive recording, and i'll be anxious to listen to it again. -pOARter November 28, 2005
The show was awesome. I felt like i was in 34th and 8th. Does anyone have the lyrics to black rock from the show? was it one of their freestyles? let me know -clayars November 29, 2005
This was my 11th OAR show. I've been watching the guys for a while, my first show was at Wootton some ten years ago and I know Marc through synogague..the point is that the guys were more professional at this show than I've ever seen them before. This was easily the best OAR show I've ever been to, the setlist was incredible, their energy was high as always, and Mike Paris on keys was a huge bonus. I loved hearing Feelin' Groovy, and the setlist was really well thought out, getting the crowd excited at the right times. All in all an incredible show..can't wait for MSG! -Jeremy November 29, 2005
I really appreciated that the band dedicated Patiently to Julie Nagel, that was truly very thoughtful of them. I have to say, I was expecting a little more from the show considering they were recording it for instantlive, but I had the time of my life as always. It's really been a trip from Rockville to NYC..see you there... -dancinfool790 November 29, 2005
The show was insane thats the only word i can think of for it. They played alot of there new stuff which was cool but i especially liked how they played older stuff like "delicate few (fire on the mountain)" and "king of the thing" and other blasts from the past. -52-50holdinontrue November 30, 2005
The show was COMPLETELY AWESOME!!! I loved it! The setlist was wonderful, the energy was high, and I loved how Marc came into the crowd- Definitely didn't like the Patriot Center, Crappy sound, dirty security, horrible view... Still a SUPER show- Thanks OAR, it rocked!!! Can't wait for the next show!! :) -oarlovernva December 8, 2005
It was the first O.A.R concert I went to and it was as good as I hoped. The new album sounds great live. Patiently is one of their best songs and it was very meaningful on this night. -phlasney December 24, 2005
