    I'm not a big Steve Winwood fan but he played all the stuff from Traffic. He was actually pretty good for an opening band

    Petty played a 3 hour set. It was cool but I didn't pull into my driveway until 4:00 AM

    Petty was awesome. This is the 4th time I've taken her to the Gorge to see him.

    I'm going to see that show in a couple weeks. Would have loved to see it at the Gorge. I have to settle for Detroit. :party:

    lucked into 2 18th row center tickets at the last minute.

    I had the option to go back today for Aerosmith but I passed. Too damn much driving.

    Plus it would be a tragedy to see Steven Tyler in his current state.

    I was ambivalent toward Winwood until I saw him live. My shitty cell phone vid doesn't do him justice.

    I really enjoyed it... especially for an opening act.

    No, it was pretty chilly last night. She wore a sweatshirt and still managed to have a dude go totally creeper on her, though.

    I don't care how old Tom Petty is, if he plays here I go.

    Great show.

    Does his music dominate in my iPod rotation? No.

    Glad you had a good show, man.

    The Gorge will always have a special place in my heart. I love it...
