We arrived at the arena after a pleasant hour's drive from Lexington. It was a gorgeous day--too bad the show wasn't outside. It would have been a perfect day for it! It was around 7:15 when we got there. I was surprised that so many people were there. Morehead is a pretty small place in Eastern Kentucky, and I wasn't sure what kind of turn out there would be. Glad so many people came out to support the band.

The arena was small, so even my seat in the rafters wasn't too bad. I thought I had really good seats until I realized that their seats are organized almost completely the opposite of the other three arenas I normally go to! Oh well, guess I'll know better next time! I'd hoped to get some good pictures for my web page, but I didn't get any really good ones.

This was my first Goo show, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I thought they sounded great. The set list seemed similar to others I've seen posted. I can't remember the order of the songs exactly! I'm happy to report that I saw no terrible behavior in the audience. Sometimes I'm embarrassed at the way people in Kentucky act at shows. It's no wonder half the country thinks we're a bunch of rednecks. (OK, I'm off my soapbox.)

I'll have to say that I was rather surprised at how subdued the crowd seemed. With the exception of the people on the floor and a few in the stands, most people sat down for the whole show. Of course, I'm also one of those mid 80's early 90's headbangers who's more used to seeing bands like Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, and Kiss. Maybe the crowds are just different--they all have bra-throwing fans though!

There were three people I'd hoped to get to talk with while at the show, and I didn't manage to find any of them. Security was pretty lax, so people were moving seats quite a bit. We had four sets of people sitting with us throughout the evening!

I didn't get to see any band members anywhere other that on the stage. I'm out of practice at hunting them down, I guess. We did, however, end up behind one of the busses on our way home. Who's bus it was is anybody's guess!

Now that I've been to my first show, I'm hoping to get to go back to another one sometime soon. I really enjoyed it!
