Venue: Verizon Wireless Ampitheater At Encore Park

This was an amazing show, that's all I got to say.It rained through REO and most of Styx but me and my group were under the ceiling (lawn was closed off).Two bad things happened though.First thing, the music for REO's show was to loud and it drowned out the vocals somewhat, but it wasn't so bad to lessen the greatness of the show.Second thing, when Lawrence (keyboard/vocalist) was singing "Lady" in Styx's set, the vocals went out, so all the audience could here was the music.The band kept going of course because they all have in-ear monitors,so their mix is still perfectly fine.It only lasted a couple of seconds though before the sound guy fixed it.Here's the set:

Right. It's actually called Space Oddity.

I'm sorry, my Mom (who's a massive Bowie fan) told me that was it.I really don't care much for him but I'll change it.

It's ok, I thought it was pretty funny actually. No offense.
