I was there and it was truly amazing. I rode a bus to Columbus from Indianapolis with 3 of my friends and another friend from Chicago met us there. We showed up at 8 am the day of the concert and wondered the streets until the show. We had nowhere to stay after the concert and planned to sleep on the street. After the greatest show we'd ever seen we just sat next to Tom Wait's tour bus deciding to sleep there. At some point one of my friends says there he is!!! He walked off the tour bus and towards the small crowd of 10-15 people including me and my friends. He shook every hand and was very humble while understanding how much this meant to us. He smiled and I could tell that we somehow meant something to him. It felt great to be in his presence and not exaggerating it's what I imagine people to have felt when they were approached by Jesus or Ghandi or someone like them. Meeting him was a once in a lifetime thing and so was the show. I know how lucky I am to have been there. I got a bootleg copy of the show through the internet and I listen to it whenever I want to remember one of the best days of my life.
