Attending the Daughtry, Goo Goo Doll's, and Plain White Tee's was amazing. Although the sound was a bit off from normal, Daughtry still put on a great performance. At one point bringing a hand full of fans along, to join him on stage. Jokingly stating " Don't mess with my drink, or roofie it". As his performance went on and they came through their set very well. Playing quite a few very liked songs and even making a tribute to the troops. "We have been on tour for three month." he stated, "they leave to protect us and never know if they are coming home". That statement truly touching the on lookers. Coming from American Idol, and turning into a class act with a passion for pleasing the fans.


    Our team though missing the plain white tee's set, got there in time for Daughtry, and also Goo Goo Doll's. As a band they still controlled the stage. With amazing presence and a great sound the band really touched the fans. At points the fans began holding cell phone lights and lighters swaying with the melody of the songs. The band though quite a few years older than the other performers still commanded the stage with great sounds and a sway to them. The bassist Robby Takac cracking jokes and still sounding the same as he did on albums that are 20 years old!

   The venue set at 5/3 ball park in Grand Rapids, MI. Was beautiful, but crowded. The staff all very polite, and the police officers as well. All and all the show was very good and the performers as always made it worth while. The music drowning out the world around us for a time, and enveloping us in a peaceful zone of pure relaxation and emotion!
