Not to be missed

All I can say is Wow! Ted Nugent's band was great, even though the drummer doesn't look old enough to shave. After seeing Skynyrd two other times they finally performed "Tuesday's Gone", which was incredible.

I had been wanting to see Steve Morse for probably 10 or 11 years, and a chance to see him play with Deep Purple was something not to be missed. His intro solo to "When A Blind Man Cries" was amazing, as was his medley of classic guitar riffs (including "Sweet Home Alabama").

At $30 for pavilion seats it was well worth it. I only hope the guy in the tie-dyed shirt a couple of rows in front of us made it home ok. He was pretty well hammered before the show even started, and kept drinking thruout the show. He was a friendly drunk and didn't throw up, which is always a plus.
