AWESOME EXCEPT COUNTING CROWS

Let me tell you this concert was amazing! Matchbox 20 was amazingly impressive. High energy fun for everybody. We had so much fun, felt like Dancing all night. I used to love counting crows and still love the recording's but live no way. Counting crows should hang it up unless their sound guy is to blame. That part of the concert was a waste. You could not hear his voice at all. They let the music override him and maybe they should have who knows. And the tempo was not for the audience it was for them

MATCHBOX 20/COUNTING CROWS

This show was amazing, the music for the Crows was a little loud which for the most part overruled his great voice. Rob Thomas and Matchbox 20 were totally fantastic, very energetic, spoke to the crowd, kept people out of their seats the whole time. My friend and myself danced the whole time. I will for sure go to see them AGAIN!! Just wish I was able to meet that sweet man of a singer (Rob Thomas) Courtney Wight , Belleville ONT

I LOVE BOTH BANDS

I grew up during this era,listen to every album by both bands. Sad to say Counting crows wasn't up to their normal par. I was in 7th row seat 1 right in the front. Next to the opening band Rivers & Rust and lead singers mom. it was definitely sound problems, for CC. MatchBox20 killed it.. The Stadium from my perspective even with all the cell phone lights on was a sight to behold and he ran from left to right side of the stage at his age doesn't get better than that

QUESTION? WHAT DID RT SAY WAS HIS FAVORITE LINE

MB20 was so fantastic! Incredible energy by Rob Thomas and the guys. (didn't care for the Counting Crows and agree with all of the reviews I've seen). Can anyone tell me what song it was when Rob brought up the lights and said he slammed his favorite line? And what line was it? My friends and I Couldn't remember. We were blown away by the whole show that MB20 brought. We sat in section 101w seats 13 14 and 15 and were afraid from other reviews about the Pavilion that we would be packed in to tight and unable to move and dance but we found it to be completely fine. The sound and lights for Matchbox 20 was great. Agree with other Pavilion reviews that there could have been signage for parking because we were told by an attendant o do a U-turn and park far away on the street but we actually got in line to park in the parking garage and that was fine and was not full. Restaurant we liked near by was In Fretta Pizza Wings Bar on Regent Blvd. Great craft drinks.

GREAT CONCET

Great concert by 2 amazing bands from the '90s. Counting Crows opened-you need to know their style,..that's how they perform. It's not bad but just different than Matchbox 20. Maybe if people actually listened to the lyrics they would appreciate the greatness of Adam D and how polished the band is after 20+ years. MB20 was great...I forgot how many songs I knew. The crowd was into them for sure. Had a great night!

MATCHBOX 20 AND OTHERS

We started the show happy and left blown away with a slight dip in the middle. Opener Rivers and Rust were fantastic featuring Matchbox 20's Kyle Cook alongside the amazing Sheila Marshall had us wanting more at the end. Then the stage opened up with the Counting Crows, a band that I have a lot of respect for and know a couple of their tunes. I had some mixed feelings, what I heard I enjoyed and I wished I knew more of their songs so I could have sung along like others were. I struggled to hear the vocals as the music was overtaking them and the frontman lacked interaction with the audience. Not sure why they left out "Mr. Jones" from their set as it was the one that I (and others) wanted to hear the most. Matchbox 20 took the stage and the energy that they supplied lit up the whole place. Rob Thomas and the boys killed it. I've never seen a better show. Ever! They performed as a equal unit and the respect they shared for each other and the audience was obvious to everyone there.
