I actually just saw Counting Crows last year with Rob Thomas and it was wonderful!!!
My main goal was to see Live. A little history on them, as a band , they split up and it was kinda ugly for many years. The lead singer Ed Kowalcyk went on to have his own solo career and I also saw him in concert. They recently after 20 + years reunited which was huge and so nice to see them back together.
Live opened up first before the Crows. My area we sat in had a bunch of duds who were either not familiar with Live , don't care to dance and sing, or too tired after a work day. Once Live came out, I was on my feet and I danced and sang the whole time. There was a girl next to me and a girl in front of me that also stood which was fun. The man next to Todd even commented once the Counting Crows came on and said " Live must be HER band! She knows every word to every song!! We have been watching her." LOL. I love music so much and I love hearing the bands sing my favorite songs. That's why I go to concerts a lot.
We actually had to leave the concert after 7 songs of the Crows because it was already after 10pm and I had to train all day today and had to be on my A game. Ironically, I didn't sleep very well at all so I should have just stayed for the whole concert. If I had not recently seen the Crows last year, I wouldn't even considered leaving early. Adam Duritz told a lot of stories and history about his songs that he wrote and I really enjoyed that aspect. Such a great night!! To top things off, we only had 100 degrees with a slight breeze and it wasn't miserably hot like 109 over the weekend.
