We have completed the first leg of the tour. Bonnaroo is officially scratched off the to do list. It was fun to play for the crowd that gathered at our tent. I want to commend our brave and hard working road crew for getting our complicated set up in there... "in there" is essentially in the middle of a big muddy field.
I don't know how many people we played to. I will estimate on the low side and say 3,000. It's really hard to judge. The tent was full and there were people outside watching and listening as well. Someone said the tent capacity was 15,000, I'm not sure about that. As I said, it's hard to judge. Many of the people sang along to every word throughout the set.
There were likely a few folks out there who were mostly unfamiliar with the music. We hope they enjoyed themselves. It would seem as though they did since the crowd chanted, "one more song, one more song" for a few minutes after our alloted time was up.
Once we gained permission to do the extra song we hit the stage and served up "Cosmik Debris". We aim to please.
Once again, thanks to everyone for supporting us on this tour. We'll see more of you in a few weeks for round 2.
