OMG!! I've been to a lot of concerts, but this was one of the best. The lineup of bands was great, but most of all - the energy of the crowd was AWESOME! Everyone was rocking out, and the Pavilion was packed right up to the end.
I've got a ton of pics and video to post - so in an effort to get it done ASAP - I won't be writing much. Just sit back and relax while the pics load. BTW - I think the pictures are good - but the video is MUCH better.....you're really missing out if you don't click the video links below. OK - on with the show!

We started the day with some crawfish and beer - and made it to the Pavilion in time to see the Deftones take the stage.
Did I mention that we had GREAT seats?
If you're a Deftones fan, I have a bit of bad news.
Originally I had video of 'Change' - but about 1/4 of the way through Limp Bizkit's set I saw 'memory full'.
...so in my rush to clear up some space - it was deleted.....bummer.
Seether is one of my favorite bands.
This was my 9th time to see them, and they never disappoint.

It was about this time that the girls showed up. Rhiannon had her baby shower that afternoon - so the girls missed some of the show...
Jacqui and Amy are ready to ROCK!!
Monica made it to the show too!!
30 Seconds to Mars
I took a detour, and spent a little time on the lawn.
Here's four pictures that I squished together...
...gosh, the stage is so far away.
A couple cold beers sound pretty good about now....
Can you see that pink mohawk in the crowd?

A few lucky folks got to join the band on stage.

Actually, I didn't make it over to the side stage.
But I gave Amy my camera - and she took these pics.
The bass player for Sick Puppies is HOT!

OMG - it's LIMP BIZKIT~!~!~!
This was my first time to see Limp Bizkit - and I was BLOWN AWAY!!
I know there are a lot of folks that don't like LB - but I'm guessing none of them have seen them play live.
Quite simply, they were awesome!!

Being a guitar guy, I'm a huge fan of Wes Borland.
This dude can JAM!! ...and I love how he changes his look for every show. ...the man has some crazy outfits.

I tried - but just couldn't get any good pics of Wes.
Fred came out into the audience for a couple songs, and was just a few feet away from us.
GOTTA CLICK HERE to see MOVIE #13 - LIMP BIZKIT - Eat You Alive from about 10
I could tell Fred was having fun at this show - look at that smile!
Probably my best shot of Wes...
And here are a few pics that I ripped from The Buzz...
Wes Borland almost looks like a frat guy without his makeup and costume.
And here's THE MAN in full costume...
Finale.... WOW what a great show!!!
