Crassus,
Cheap Trick played at The Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City tonight... It was a great show. I was impressed at how good they sounded. A fun time was had by all.

Did they do that one song that I really like, what is called, "Surrender"?

Yes, they did Surrender... And the other one most people have heard of "I Want You To Want Me" Also, most people don't realize the theme song to the TV show "That 70's Show" is actually a Cheap Trick song, and was long before That 70's Show made it more well known. They also played songs from their new album.

Tyically what one would expect, it's just there is never a guarentee anymore as to what will be played at the concert. I went to a Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young concert like six years ago, and I was disappointed when they did not play a song that you would figure would be a sure item. My only guess behind the reasoning was that the song was originally made without Young.

Crassus,
2 interesting observations about your latest post. First, I also saw CSNY about six years ago.... It was at Madision Square Garden, though I'm sure it was part of a tour so it would be even more of a coincidence if you saw them there as well.

Second, I recently saw Neil Young in an interview where he said that when he plays a live show and someone (primarily the press) complains he didn't play such-and-such a song, he thinks to himself that's a good thing! Because he feels what gets played live should be a reflection of how an artist feels he wants to express himself at that particular time. So playing certain songs all the time is sort of cheating the audience because it's not where the musician is at that point. He had similar remarks about his studio work as well.

So I found it interesting that you mentioned your disappointment.

What song was it, anyway?

Okay Coda1108, I actually saw them in Atlanta. The song that they didn't play, that I really like, is "Wasted on the Way"-- the story of my life.
If I remember correctly, they did do several songs that were exclusively Neil Young songs, as the encore song was "Rockin' in the Free World." One Neil Young song that they did not do was "Southern Man." Did they do that in New York?

I don't remember whether or not they did Southern Man. Though I do remember they did a set of all Neil's solo stuff.

I also saw Neil solo and acoustic in the mid-1980's. It was an "unplugged" concert before "unplugged" was even a show! He did have an encore that went electric, though. I think it was when "Hurricane" was his latest, but I'm not completely sure.
