They did the same thing in Indy, and it was terrible. I was very dissapointed in the show, I thought it sucked. Don’t get me wrong Cracker and BHTM were both really good, But Cracker got 25 min. to play and BHTM got about 35 min. I went with the plan to get out of there after Traveler, but should have left after BHTM. The crowd sucked, it was like being at a Jimmy Buffet show, Johnny Poppers voice was trashed and the two opening bands who are far superior then the headliners had short sets, you agree don’t ya Doc?

LOL, I agree 100%. This show was more like a dinosaur tour than i expected. With the length of the set lists, these guys should have been doing state fair shows. It should have started at 4:30 insted of 6:30 if they had to end at 10:30. And REALLY Mr. Popper…..sledgehammer? that really sucked.

This tour bites the BIG one! Cracker played 4 songs and Blues played 6. We split after that. Yawn….

I saw them at the Wisconsin State Fair and was also EXTREMELY disappointed. Cracker was done before we even found our seats. Big Head Todd was the best, but they played a super short set and other than “Bittersweet” didn’t play anything decent. Blues Traveler had a very short and un-energetic set.
The crowd was excited for BNL, and while they weren’t terrible, I’m not 14 anymore and don’t find them as amusing as the rest of the drunks did

I saw the show in Wes Palm Beach and Blues Traveller was awesome – they did not play sledgehammer but did cover a Sublime song which was cool. BNL was okay at best, I think they are really missing their other original singer.

We took in this show in LA I still cannot believe BNL was heading up any show Big Head Todd killed it every one else sucked balls.

Cracker carried this show…BHTM ok at best…Poppers voice shot and BNL completely mailed it in….
