I drove down from Wash DC to see this show. Having just gotten the LP a week or so previously I did not have a chance to really listen to it. All I really knew of the disc was "Love will find a way", and "Rhythm of Love", as they were being played heavily on the radio. Going to the show and hearing "Almost like Love", "Final Eyes", and "Big Generator" soured me. I just was unfamilier with them. Once "Shoot High" kicked in (and it was GREAT!) and they moved to more things I knew I liked the show. It was the only time I heard "Love will find a way" live, and I'm disappointed I never heard it again, as I liked that song, even to this (JAN 2009) day. I will agree with the other reviews that I remember the band playing pretty flat at theis show. Maybe Jon and Chris had one their fights that day!
I seem to remember a lot of the special effects didn't work that night. The inflatable globe that did nothing. I was disappointed that they just "did thier thing" and left. Seemed like they just wnated that show over. And that comes form me - the biggest YesWest fan.
Wow I remember the Richmond concert from the BG tour. 5th row in front of Squire. It seemed like they just kinda did their thing and left even though it was a sold out show. I remember "Final Eyes" not going down very well, but And You And I was flawless. Great memory.
1) I was there front row!!
