Wow dude!!! That sounds like an amazing night! When did Ben start doing solo sets first? I've never seen him do Roses or Forever in person... and Roses is one of my all-time favourites. The only exemption from those setlists is Spanish Red Wine... I'm loving the album version of that tune, but they don't seem to be playing it much.

Thanks for posting the setlist, Diamonds!

Spanish Red Wine would've been nice. I don't know why they don't play it much either. I'm just glad they did it in Chicago last year:

Hey lovitz. Had a great time. For some reason it seems to me that the show didn't sell well, so the place was pretty empty. It was at a college though, so there were a few assholes in the crowd who deemed it necessary to scream and yell inappropriately. What are you gonna do?

Oh, and yes, a tape was made and will be available at some point in time Wink

Diamonds - where were your seats for this show? We were fourth row section 2, seats 1&2 - which equates to on the center aisle. Cool

What's that...I think two rows back, to the left...in the middle. I think there were a lot of people seat-hoppin' around you. And you may have caught a glimpse of "Sergio", the dude with the dreads down to his ass. (he decided he'd rather talk to me than watch the show at one point - lucky me!)

Yeah there were some empty seats in our row. Towards the end of the show people kept showing up around us.

Funny, I think I remember seeing the "Sergio" dude on the way out....it appeared he was quite intoxicated.

Another funny story...before the encore Mozersky flicked his pick out into the crowd and it looked like it nailed this chick in the head who was turned around...anyway, I didn't see anyone snag it, so I took a quick look after the lights came back and it was sitting right there on the floor Very Happy

I am unable to comprehend a not sold out show Ben Harper would play with any of his bands whether IC, R7 or FoM. do people not know this is one of the most talented artists in the world and seeing him on stage in any shape or form is an absolute privilege??

Thanks so much for the torrent!
