Las Vegas Greek Theater Gig July 5th, 2002
A Concert Review by Cransensation
Woooooooooooo! I would have written something about it last night, but I had a headache from the loud music! It was beaaaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuutifuuuuuullll!!!!!!!!! The whole thing was rocking w/ the electric guitars! Dolores said "well, I have to say that this is one of the most "welcomed" gigs in L.A. !! The theatre itself was an outside place, where you could see these wonderful trees, and the black sky. (I can't believe you could only see like 1 or 2 stars hah). Anyway, the band started w/ "Wake Up And Smell The Coffee" and ended w/ "Dreams", a perfect night! Oh yeah, and at one point when it sort of got "quiet" I shouted "you guys ROCK!" haha, I bet everyone heard that! I was w/ Lisa that night and it wouldn't have been the same w/ anyone else :D. I got a program, a thingy that shows their North American tour, a shirt, and a poster, which all came up pretty expensive, but worth it . My first cranberries concert was last night and it was a wonderful experience! Took like 5 songs before my leg could stop shaking lol. Oh yeah, they DID play "The Stars", it was really nice :), I just wish I could remember it, something about "I love you just the way you are" . To tell you guys the truth, Mike doesn't really bring the attention to himself, but Noel was pumped! He almost did the splits w/ a jump!
Dolores was beautiful as always :D, although she didn't wear the little black skirt I hoped she would lol. She wore a dress, (can't remember it really), then those leather black pants w/ the stringy bottom, and I think the last thing she wore was a black dress, yep! They played all of their singles :). Let me try to remember the set list (in no particular order): "wake up...", "analyse", "go your own way", "when you're gone", "free to decide", "time is ticking out", "ode to my family", "ridiculous thoughts", "sunday", "pretty", "dreams", "The Stars", "zombie", "salvation", "desperate andy", "linger", "I can't be with you", "dreaming my dreams", "daffodil lament", "animal instinct", "loud and clear", "promises", "the concept", "this is the day" OH YEAH! It was the best night of my life! Lol, the only real "soft" sounding song was "the concept" where Dolores played her piano :D. Oh yeah, and she wore some funky black hat w/ some strings coming out.
That's all for now folks .
Here's where my show review is on their web site!
