BOC played the Rams Head Center Stage at Maryland Live! Casino last night. It was a seated show and I can't sit at a concert so we hung out by VIP them moved to the front of the stage for the encores. Cities on Flame is one of my favorite songs ever so I was glad to see it live one last time probably.

Started off on point, got a little stale at times during the middle then finished up strong.

The MLB 14 game had Take Me Away as the theme song and I always wondered why they don't play it live since it's one of their 5-6 best songs to me. When I looked it up I saw it was written by Aldo Nova with Eric Bloom. Is that why they don't play it? Not sure but I filed that under: Ya learn something new every day! hahaha

Setlist:

This Ain't the Summer of Love
Career of Evil
Burnin' for You
Dancin' in the Ruins
Harvest Moon
The Vigil
I Love the Night
ME 262
Then Came the Last Days of May
Godzilla (with I Love Rock and Roll, Bang the Drum All Day and Paradise By the Dashboard Light) Bass Solo/Drum Solo - Buck's Guitar Solo
(Don't Fear) The Reaper

Encore:

Hot Rails to Hell
Cities on Flame With Rock and Roll :rocker:

The first time I saw them in Clifton Park they played Take Me Away. I don't understand why they don't make it a staple.

These guys tend to be real solid at changing their setlist from night to night. The bajillion minute Godzilla needs to be cut down though, and the ROCK! AND ROLL! crap during Cities on Flame needs to die a horrible death. Still a very good live band though. Buck still shreds and Richie's extended solo during Last Days of May is always amazing.
