Collective Soul -- Naperville, IL -- September 1st, 2013

This was a show called the Naperville Last Fling, which was sort of an end-to-the-summer festival. Collective Soul headlined. A few songs into their set they said they were gonna play all those songs we've heard way too much over the last 19 years, but we were gonna enjoy every minute of it. They were right. The setlist was pretty much what I expected (their hits), but they did throw in a few songs that they don't ALWAYS play, like, "Tremble For My Beloved," "She Said," "Needs," "Better Now," and the big surprise "Sister Don't Cry." In the middle of "Hollywood" they covered a snippet of Pete Townsend's "Let My Love Open The Door." Unfortunately since a big thunder storm was coming in they had to cut their set short. That was understandable, though, because by the time we got to our car 5 minutes after they finished it was absolutely pouring like crazy. I'm assuming the songs that got cut at the end were "Shine," "Run," and possibility 1 or 2 more. Like I always say about about Collective Soul, their setlists are pretty predictable, but I still go see them every chance I get. They are a fantastic live band, and they write great songs. Setlist:

Tremble For My Beloved
She Said
Why Pt. 2

Sister Don't Cry
Hollywood / Let My Love Open The Door
Better Now
The World I Know
