It was my second time watching their show live and these icons, who have been around since the late 60's, are one of the few bands that are still going from that time period sans The Rolling Stones who started even sooner.
Anyway, the show at Prospera this time was a little more subdued and you could definitely tell by the half of stadium it occupied which was about 80% sold that many people have forgotten about these guys - at least in the Okanagan.

Played the songs very well and as I said when you have been around as long as they have you get a bye on some things.
My one and only complaint of this show, when compared to the one two years ago, is that they jammed and played more bluesy tunes and excluded some of their more popular songs. It's not all about popularity however some of the omitted songs were huge ones for them.
Subdued - although they did come to life on their most popular songs such as Sharp Dressed Man and Gimme All Your Loving.
I was hoping to see it sold out but unfortunately it wasn't and that was only half of Prospera Place which is a about 3500 people so my guesstimate is that there were about 3000 people that attended the show excluding corporate boxes.
