Reviews I went to this one and the IU show on Friday and this one was definetly the better of the two. Great sound and its great to hear Conquering Fools with the Dyer Maker tease.Also awesome to hear Road Outside Columbus, it seems like they forgot about their potential on that. All in all the really rocked out and the crowd was loving it. -Oarfan03 April 23, 2007
I have seen O.A.R. live 3 times now and this was the best. I like them in th esmaller setting and this was perfect for them.
The show was absolutley amazing. I can't want to see them again. -Bearclaw April 23, 2007
Awesome setlist. The Architect and Rhythm Of Your Shoes are amazing new songs. Great venue with awesome sound quality. Cool to see Marc bring the kids up on stage as he interacted well with the crowd all night long. The guys were great all around as usual, can't wait for the next show! -kcurie22 April 23, 2007
This was my 5th show so far and was the second best show I've seen. (Ames,IA.-2005 is unstoppable) The setlist was really good and the crowd was very into it. You could definetely tell O.A.R. was loving it and feeding off our energy. Conquering fools was awesome as was ROC. Still waiting to hear K.O.T.T. Although, I thought it was pretty lame when the crowd started chanting for Poker after Short A Try (It was only 10:15) All in all a great show and here's hoping somebody recorded it. 8 out of 10.
P.S. OAR14, you've got to share the recorded version! -TBanger4 April 23, 2007
A truly unbelievable night for me.
Mark Roberge throughout the show would point at fans and say thanks for the signs. He pointed out one, written in black ink on a bright green sign that said "Zion" on it. Mark said in short that he was sorry they were'nt going to be able to sing that one, but that he wanted to try out a new on in "The Architect." The crowd had already been quiet listening to him when I yelled at the top of my lungs and gave the right-handed fist pump ala Bender from Breakfast Club and Mark looked directly at me and said something at first I could not make out. "I'm not sure if you all can hear me talk..." the lead singer said. I realized that he noticed my Chicago Cubs hat and was happy to see that I heard the song before and said something along the lines of "Yah! Thanks - Chicago Cubs!" - That really made me feel on top of the world. It's not as good as being on stage but man if the singer acknowldges my existance, you can not top that!
It was a wonderful show and my 2nd time seeing OAR in concert. If you have and audio, video or pics - I would really appreciate it! myspace.com/ryanan -RyanAn April 23, 2007

This show was scorching! A little disappointing to see so many empty seats, but those who went were great! Conquering fools with the D'yer Mak'er tag was amazing, as was hearing Road Outside Columbus for the first time. I also must say I'm a big fan of both Rhythm of Your Shoes and the Architect. Jerry was on as always, and Marc's interaction with the audience was great. A great show for my 10th! -Andynel88 April 24, 2007
I've been a fan since 7th grade and am now a junior in college, and as crazy as it is, the South Bend show was my first (but definitely not my last!) The energy was intense, the interaction endearing. I sat in the Mezz and even though I wasn't on the floor, was still singing my heart out and soaking in every minute. I fell in love with their music all over again. What an amazing experience. Best live show I've ever seen performed. -StephP April 24, 2007
All I have to say was the crowd makes all the difference. This crowd was one of the best I'd seen. They guys were into it, and the music was incredible. The Architect is my favorite of the new songs. Conquering Fools was FINALLY played for my husband. Richard said after the show they were originally going to can it. That's why it was played "out of order" on the setlist. BUT being the coolest person ever him and Marc remembered us from the 4/20 show and played it. Honest to god.
I keep saying this but EVERYTIME we see them they keep getting better and better. For #15 it was awsome. They are musically in tune with each other and the jams are getting unreal.Lay Down w/the new acapella intro and the crazy jam mid way through is amazing. They have really molded that song into a GREAT jam song!! -stlang3l April 24, 2007
5th show... very solid, great energy, great setlist! much love to Marc for keeping it one on one with the fans the whole night... gotta love these guys!!! -tfoss April 25, 2007
OK...4th show, 2nd in the same weekend! I thought the show at IU was awesome...then I went to South Bend!!! Wow...what a great venue for these guys to play in. The crowd was a little young but had a lot of fun and kept it spirited! Marc interacted with the crowd so much and they thrive on the energy of the crowd. It will NEVER get old watching these guys play... -OAR14 April 25, 2007
I have to agree with everyone else this show was awesome and so was the crowd. Ive seen o.a.r. 3 1/2 times now (got booted from columbus last summer) and it was the best. Im from south bend and went up there from school to see the show and was amazed at how energetic the crowd was -mlaakso May 1, 2007
