- Set 1:
Reviews OAR played great and made for a fun show. I was surprised the arena wasnt packed though, especially given that the show was free to UCF students and OARs recent exposure with their MTV and radio play. It was kind of odd seeing them at this venue but that didnt compromise the sound at all. There were only original tunes played here tonight, no covers; and sadly no encore either. Three songs off of their new album were played but I was disappointed not to hear their single Love & Memories and a few other new songs (ie. Heard the World) that Ive yet to have a live listen. 52-50 was a nice opener. The light show effects were pretty cool and helped to add some energy to the show. Overall it was a good show but far from one of those spectacular memorable performances. I just might have to go to NYC to see them at the Garden.
btw- i'm still waiting for that encore...

Fun show, but doesn't compare to the shows at House of Blues a few months ago. I also do not see why the arena was not packed out for this show... It was FREE for UCF students.
Last night the majority of the people only knew Delicate Few, City on Down, and of course Crazy Game of Poker. Not to mention all the people who stayed in their seats all night.. Geez..
Anyway, I hyped it. I guess I could complain about the crowd more... but I did really enjoy the show. 52-50, badass. Wonderful Day, badass. Mr. Moon, one of my favorite live. Dakota, badass. Jerry is the absolute Hype. Haha, was Marc wasted??? Kinda looked like it!
I did see the setlist beforehand,, Love and Memories WAS on the list. Jerry even went back and grabbed his guitar but Marc walked up and I'm guessing told him that it was out.. That would have made it a little better. But shit, what am I saying, it was a FREE concert.
Thank you OAR. I'll be back again. -Philo December 2, 2005
Fan freaking tastic....to those of you that live near Orlando or go to UCF and missed this free show, and even if you had to pay it was only 25 bucks, then you missed out. Not as long of setlist b/c of Jason Mraz (zzzz) and other lineups, but still was great to see them as it didnt seem like they were going to make it to this area......i called 52-50 for opener and was GREAT....everything was great, I guess i've turned into one of those people that are disapointed w/ others that only want the big songs (which i do too!!!) but this band is the absolute best and seeing them live every time is indeed a treat, by far would see O.A.R. over any other live show.....Love and Memories would have been good, but cant complain, GREAT SHOW!!!!!!! cant wait till your back around here...MSG would be sweet though!!! O.A.R. members Marc, Jerry, Benj, Chris, and Richard all did a great job..each of you guys bring so much energy and good times to your shows...ALL the albums are great and keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!!
O.A.R. see you next time in Orlando and anywhere close...thanks again!!!!!....Your concerts are UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks ORLANDO LOVES YOU
show was short b/c of music festival called "Knightstock" which is put on by UCF...Jason Mraz, Big 10-4, and some other bands played before...but O.A.R. was headliner of this event.....believe me I was there and wish it was longer b/c it was indeed another great time! -fishFL December 2, 2005
