- Set 1:
Reviews Decent setlist, could have used a few slower and/or lesser known songs, seems like they fell back on songs that the crowd would know. Crowd was OK for the most part, quite a few talkers around though.
I walked out of here with something for liveoar.com, hoping to get some flacs of the show instead of what I assume were mp3s they were selling on the thumb drive (guy behind the counter couldn't tell me either way). Sadly the site is still "coming soon" even though this says Feb 2009. Anyone have any idea if I can purchase the concert elsewhere at this point or have I missed out until this website is up? -rhpot1991 April 15, 2009
good show...can't really complain. Poster above, I think Nate said he was taping the show. I saw one stand back by the soundboard so a tape should pop up soon. -Majew10 April 15, 2009
O.A.R. does not disappoint, EVER. This is my 38th show, and I loved it like the first time I saw them in Westminster, MD at Record & Tape Traders. I'd like to encourage the newer fans who only knew This Town, Shattered, Poker, and Love and Memories to really dig into the older stuff too, as that is some of their best music.
I really enjoy MikeIParis playing keys! Just as Jerry added a new dimension when he joined the group, MikeIParis does the same with his jammin on the keyboards. I'd love to see them officially make him a member of O.A.R. after being with them for awhile now.
And they can pick an opening act. Graham Colton, Howie Day, Jack's Mannequin, Ozomatli, VaCo, and now Parachute...keep up the good work fellas.
See you in Atlanta Friday night.

Seeing O.A.R. in concert will never get old. Every time I see them perform live, the show is energetic, the music soulful, and the performance is truly heartfelt. I felt so at home in York last night and loved every minute of the music. I agree--MikelParis rocked the house with his keyboard skills and the drum break with him, Chris, and Jerry was amazing as well! No matter the setlist or the venue, I always leave an O.A.R. concert feeling a little sad that it has ended, but excited for the next time I get to see them play! Great show! -allora11 April 16, 2009
really good setlist. wouldve loved to hear untitled or delicate few though, but i can't complain about it. once again the songs were great, so on that end i cant complain. only thing i have to say is that around me in the front nobody was moving, nobody was singing, and it seemed i was the only one into it. but of course they went crazy for shattered...if only they knew how great the other songs were that they played. great show, great setlist, boring crowd. -rtrowski April 16, 2009
