Dave Matthews Band at Staples Center - Tuesday, August 19, 2008

Saw DMB last night at Staples here in LA.
After the first song was played, Dave made an announcement that Leroi (the saxaphonist) passed away. (See previous post)

The show was a little hard to watch. During the next song, the jumbo screens showed tears rolling down Carter's face. And throughout the entire set Stefan looked really somber, everytime I caught a good glimpse at it I had tears weld up.

So, I'm thankful that I saw the whole band play together last year on the last stop of their tour at the Hollywood Bowl and I'm thankful that even though they are dealing with a great lost they still came on stage last night. During the show, the Boy checked his iPhone and Leroi passed away less than an hour before they went on stage, I was happy to see that they still came out, but was extremely sad for their lost.
