First time to this venue last night, usually go to Camden...a few observations....totally shocked that when we got to the lots around 1:00, only 3 cars in line. That would never be the case in Camden. Even at 4:00, lot 3 was still very empty. It did fill up though.
Equally surprised parking was free. Love the facility. Smaller than Camden, but very nice. Getting out of the lot after show was amazing. People must have left show early.
Perhaps,the most amazing thing was how immaculately clean the lot was after the show. Camden looks like a war zone afterwards.
And lastly, one of the BEST shows I have ever seen, and this was my 28th show.

sorry our BN contingent missed catching up with you......we've never been to this venue (but have made several trips to Camden) and would 2nd all of your observations. WE LOVED the 'PLEASE RISE FOR OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM". We understand this venue starts every show like this !!!

One more observation....We always sit in the lawn, and I have NEVER seen so many chairs in a lawn section. We are used to blankets everywhere. We were afraid these “chair people” were going to be sitting all night. Happily, they didn’t. 😀

Hey y'all! Back in Maine after that AMAZING show. The band was tight and Jimmy was dancing and prancing around that stage having a blast!

The venue - we were on the lawn, with chairs, second row in from the top. All the folks around us were singing, laughing, and dancing - a great crowd. Weather was perfect. Great to see the BN contingent there, including a MOOG sighting! Tailgating was definitely tame compared to other venues but everyone was fun, friendly, and neat!

I personally loved Jimmy's white sportscoat moment and the lounge singer vibe for those few songs, it made me think - again - that he should do an intimate Broadway show like Bruce did, with a scaled down Coral Reefer band and lots of storytelling and back catalog stuff as well as acoustic versions of his hits. Would be a definite sell out, I know I would be there.

Was very happy to see Robert down front and so often on the screens. Not sure if that is new for this tour as I have not been watching other show broadcasts, only setlisting sometimes. But the pans are a big part of the vibe for me so I loved it.

Second row was nuts and an amazing experience I’ll never forget it.It was definitely a mix of like VIP upper class yellow album fans and some diehards. Overall, totally worth the large amount of money I spent on them. To hear pirate that close and nautical wheelers and tin cup was well worth the extra money.

I agree. Lots were clean not a lot of drunks like Jones Beach, easy to get in and out. All in all a good experience.

I had a wonderful time. Jimmy joined me for air bongos during BEG. He is very good at air bongos.
If I wasn't fishing in this all day rain,I'd be home doing something stupid.
