First time Wicked Storm was played.
Reviews WOW! from Kelley James at the opening bringing random fan on stage to play drums on "What I Got" (Sublime)/"Ice Ice Baby"/freestyle, right on through to "Poker". This was an incredible evening. Highlights for me (aside from the horn section in general) were "Anyway", which sounds incredible with the horns, Wicked Storm(complete with some lyrics!)> 52-50. Perfect transition! And getting "Downeaster Alexa" was an amazing treat! Love what they've done with Road Outside Columbus adding the jam at the end. ZION! I asked the guys to play this back in October when they played at LeMoyne College in NY as I had never heard it live, and they did! Getting to hear it for a second time in less than a year is just beyond comprehension! Funny part is looking around the crowd (we were in the pit so we could see the whole amphitheater) it looked like nobody else even knew the song! That is a shame. It's one of their best! SOJA coming out and playing Stir It Up with the boys was epic. Its been too long since they've used that with Night Shift and I am really glad it found its way back into the show! All in all, Awesome night, Richard gave his last pick to a friend that was with me which made her night! AMAZING set, AMAZING show! Cannot wait for next year! -scheisty1 August 8, 2011
scheisty1 was on point. i had great seats in section 2 and had a usual blast. i love the horns and jerry joining them up on that box. got a huge laugh when Benj's bass went to Bob "Bobby Lee" Jefferson of SOJA. Benj was just hanging out watching. downeaster alexa is one of my favorite billy joel songs so that was sweet. already stated before but loved the jam session during anyway and 52-50. road outside columbus as well, just pissah all around. i won't forget to mention the ridiculous nightshift/stir it up with kelley james and soja. shit was on point. see you wednesday in boston -jdowdy77 August 10, 2011
Loved every minute of this show! I was lucky enough to grab some pit tickets for myself and a few friends. Let me just say that SPAC is a gorgeous venue with amazing sound quality. You must see a show here.
I wanted to share a video from this show. It is taken in high definition, from the pit, second-row centered in front of Marc's mic... link is below. Enjoy!

I'm sorry for the bad camera skills... this isn't what I can normally do. Security would not let us take video whatsoever... I literally had to pretend I was constantly taking pictures to pull this one off. -DSims914 April 20, 2012
