The last show, three years later

Recommended Posts

In the past, on other threads, I've shared a few thoughts and memories on the final show, but this time, I just thought I'd share a few pics from that night.  Nothing special, just memories from my personal collection.  A lot of what I took was from the screen because I was sitting further away than I normally would and my camera/phone camera didn't function properly that night.  The weather was pleasant for end of summer evening, hazy blue sky and 80 degrees at around 7pm (I know because for some weird reason I took a screen shot of the local weather that night)  There were a couple fires in LA at the time so lots of people were standing around talking about them while waiting for the show to begin.  Everyone seemed to be in a great mood and friendly, almost a family like atmosphere.

Anyway, here are a few pics I thought came out decent.

And finally, I call this one "Ron Found A Quarter."

Ha ha ha! If it weren't their last night in concert, this would be a very funny live album title with your image of course.

Do you own "Ron Found A Quarter" on triple vinyl?

Thanks for sharing the photos. Any other moments from the show you'd care to share? 

cheers

My pleasure and absolutely agree, so sad we will never see this incredible band again.  I am beyond grateful for the shows I was able to attend over the years.

As for Ron.... haha!  No, he didn't pick up a quarter, but that was the first thought that came to my mind when I looked at the picture and saw how he was bent over looking at something on the floor of the stage.  "Oooo, shiny!" 😅

Why yes I do own "Ron Found A Quarter"!!  Limited SRC 180gram marbled vinyl with ultra limited reproduction quarter collectors coin, just like the one Ron found!

Memories... so many memories.  They are all still so fresh in my mind like it happened yesterday.  There are little things such as, I can hear the crickets chirping in the trees to the side of the Bowl.

Perhaps a more significant memory is that I can remember word for word Tom's greeting to the crowd before playing Rockin' Around With You.  The videos posted on Youtube claiming to be the final show in full use the opening from the first night at The Bowl.  Yes, it was somewhat scripted, he never ventured too far from the script, but, slightly different from the other nights.

"Oh, I feel a little mojo building up in here!  Can you feel the mojo in here?!  Can you say yeah?!  Yeah?!  Yeah?!  We're going to play you the first track from the first album we ever did.  It's called Rockin' Around With You!"

Now you've got me thinking more about the show and just that night in general.  Let me get back to you after I've had a chance to collect my thoughts and I'll try and put together a brief recap and some of my favorite memories from that night.  While I'm at it, I'll also go through my other pictures and things and see if there is anything else worth posting.

Hey guys,

Sorry I haven't been on in a while.  It's been a very busy, often hectic few weeks and will probably remain that way for a couple more weeks.  I haven't forgotten about this thread and have been thinking about the show, the question that was asked, and some of my favorite memories.  Hopefully I will be less busy and get to them soon.
