I have been to several hundred concerts and I was really disappointed to see the Counting Crows at Borgata 2 nights ago. I paid 85 bucks to see Adam and the Crows, not the other 2 bands, who played the vast majority of the night. No A Long December. No Goodnight Elizabeth. No Raining in Baltimore. No Round Here. No Walkaways. Omaha. They played Hanging Around, I think that was it. Sorry but there's a responsibility to play at least 3 or 4 classics to make fans happy; I dont think that's asking too much or selling out, when that's what people long for and you're paying to hear at least 3 or 4 classics. They took a break after maybe an hour, then covered lots of other classic songs but almost no classics. Felt like a bait and switch, not fair and not right. Worst concert in 10 years despite the energy and synergy of the combo.
