The Goo Goo Dolls SUCKED. It was cool though, I needed to get nachos anyway. Adam and the boys brought the house down! Here's the setlist, I'm not positive about the order:

Anna Begins
Hard Candy
Ghost Train
Richard Manuel
Big Yellow Taxi
Round Here w/ Murder of One Lyrics
Long December
Hangin Around

Mr. Jones
Murder of One
Holiday in Spain

It was a great show, I think they gave us a little extra because it was the last show of the tour. Can't wait till next time...

This was my second Counting Crows show. It was amazing! I actually took two friends with me who where "psyched" to see the Goo Goo Dolls. By the time Adam had belted out the last line of "Holiday in Spain", at the end of the show, my friends were ranting and raving about how the Crow's set was the best musical show they had ever seen. Period. Adam, as usual, sang with pure passion and my wife and I were truly moved. Now...the concert. Kicked the show off with "Anna Begins" and it was flawless. They also played (not in this order - memory not too good) "Omaha", "Miami", "Colorblind", "Catapult", "Cannonball", "Hard Candy", "A Long December". I don't have the exact set list, but I'm working on getting it. They finished with the acoustic version of "Mr. Jones", then "Murder of One" and then finished it off with "Holiday in Spain". One of the most fun parts of the show was when they played "Hanging Around" toward the end. A nice collection of Mascot-style animals populated the stage. There was a dolphin, a bear, a tiger and a handful of other animals. The stage was packed with people and you could tell everyone was having a GREAT time. The crowd was really into the concert the whole night. We sat in the grass, and it stayed packed until the very last note. The stage was also very cool. I really liked the setup a lot better than the last time I saw them when they were touring with Mayer. I found myself really getting lost with Adam when he sang. It amazes me at how passionate the guy is. Even if a person does not appreciate their music, you've got to stand in awe at the amount of passion that band cranks out. Anyway, just had to give "props" to the Crows tonight. It was truly a moving experience!!!
This was my first Crows concert and it was the best concert I have been to yet. Other concerts I have been to have been more exciting and lots of other things to draw you away from the music. This was all about the music, the way it sounded the way it felt and the emotion of the music was outstanding. You can definitly tell Adam cares about the music and musicianship in his shows. I was lucky enough to see the last show of their tour and it was great. Adam did say that they have an album coming out sometime next year. I can not wait. Goo Goo Dolls were also great.
The band was amazing on 9/9/06. Adam is one of the most inspiring musicians alive! The crowd would have been fine with that performance of Round Here never ending. I couldn't have asked for a better show.
I thought the Goos were fine, and really liked the first guy, although I can't remember his name for the life of me! Best part was an extended "Round Here" with "A Murder of One" lyrics added. I thought the lyrics I will walk along this hillside . . .) seemed to take on a totally different meaning in a different song - that's me I guess. Just seemed very raw. But then later they sang "Murder" again, which made me happy because I loved that song. Man, that song got me past a lousy high school boyfriend! Can't wait for the next Crows tour.
Best concert I have ever been to. I am a huge Crows fan but this was my first time to see them live, as I live in Texas and they don't come here often. I have never seen someone command an audience the way AD does. I really was suprised at how much they give at a live show. They held nothing back and I was thoroughly pleased. I wish that you got a copy of the show on video after you leave cause that is something that I really wish I had access to. My Longhorns got stomped by Ohio State that night and I wasn't caring a bit as AD and the Crows blew me away.
I've been a fan for years and seen them twice here in Dallas. This show was spectacular, nothing short of amazing. It's been a week since the show, and I am still thinking about the experience. Adam's lyrics are like poetry, and he and the band gave us 110% on the last night of the tour. It was magical--can't wait to see them next time around.
