I have listened to Matchbox 20 forever. I have their first album on cassette!
My mom is a huge fan as well and that is why when Pechanga Casino was having them kick off their summer concert series, I got tickets so fast! The concert was on July 9th. It was a lovely day for a concert. Despite our horrible seats, we enjoyed a rocking show.
Vanessa Carlton was very good. Boy can she play a piano!! She was very quiet and calm. I think this was great, because it made Matchbox 20 even better. Rob Thomas is a great performer and they all work well as a band.
At one point Rob Thomas went to use the stage towel... thinking it would be hand towel size, but it was a full sized towel. He found this to be very funny and he wrapped it around his waist and pranced around for a while. Funny to those in attendance only, I am sure.
Any song you have ever heard on the radio... they played! It was bloody fantastic!! I knew all but one of them and that always makes for a better concert!
Thanks Matchbox 20 for a rgeat night!
The middle blob is Rob Thomas. Ha, ha.
