“As always- the counting crows put up an awesome show!!”
I will never get tired of watching the Counting Crows. Every show is different and amazing.
“I am a very tough music critic. I go 100+ concerts a year and have for years. Have a very eclectic taste in all music. Had great seats and was just so/so interested in seeing the Counting Crows. Had a few of their songs on my I Pod but that was about it? I have to tell you they were easily one of the best concert this year, and a VERY good combination of Musicians and entertainers. I highly recommend going to see them”.
