HOOTIE @PINE KNOB

What a great night at Pine Knob Music Theatre. Edwin McCain opened playing his classics as well as making cameo’s with both Collective Soul and Hootie and the Blowfish. CS was absolutely spot on with their big hits, and Hootie and the Blowfish kept the pace. The stage show was amazing, the sound was nearly perfect. Darious did some solo tracks around a campfire, making it perfect show on a perfect night.

AWESOME CONCERT FROM ALL 3 PERFORMERS. NO ONE SAT DOWN ON THE MAIN FLOOR FOR THE ENTIRE CONCERT DURING HOOTIE AND THE BLOWFISH

No one on the main floor of the Footprint center sat down the entire performance by the Blowfish. Lead guitarist put on a great show and Darius hasn't lost a thing and sang very well

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE ENCORE?

Hootie & the Blowfish is one of my favorite bands. 7/20/24 was a good concert and Mr. Rucker and co. sounded good EXCEPT for the long-awaited encore “Only Wanna Be With You”. I can only guess that DR forgot to reinsert his ear plugs because it was awful. Off key and all over the place, like he was trying to sing 4 songs all at once. I love them, though!

HOOTIE AND THE BLOW FISH

Sound system awful. Darius sounded muffled all the way through (as did their opening act Bare Naked Ladies). Sound system checks need to be properly done from all angles of the audience seating arrangements. Felt like were listening to a band playing down the street. Views were terrible unless were directly in frontline of stage's view, and as there were no giant video screens for the side-seated chaired audience to view, as their giant front and center video screen was partially covered from view on both left and right sides of the stage by giant black sheeting... all sideview seated audiences were able to really see were nice giant angles of Darius' ear or elbow on this video screen. For the money spent on tickets, etc... you should make sure your fans can see you. Have been to see other acts at Shorline (and other venues) where the act made sure video screens were up from all angles to make sure all their paid fans could see them no matter where they sat. Dont be stingy... spend the money. Seems we fans made the best of it... nice song list, nice energy. Though, all-in-all, due to above stated, basically felt mostly "removed" from the concert. The people around us all stating the similar conplaints.

A FEW GOOD SONGS

Bare naked ladies opened for them.Turns out they were the better band. Hootie has a few good songs that made the charts. A lot of songs were get a beer or go to the bathroom songs.

DISAPPOINTED

Taken to MSG 8/11/19 for a birthday celebration. BNL were great & the sound system was perfect. Not the same when H&BF were on stage, Darius was definitely drowned out by the music and very surprised no one heard it and adjusted accordingly. If your seats were not right in front your view of the 2 large screens was blocked due to the speakers, our seats were in the 102 section, would've been an easy fix. Your staff should ensure and look at the stage from our view. Would like to hear the singing, and not muffled words. Couldn't wait to see the show, Birthday celebration with my family, we enjoyed in spite of these issues.

COVER BAND PERFORMANCE

Poor sound at times. Have not been to a concert in a while where massive numbers of people leave way before the end of the show! The reason being Hootie and Blowfish 25yr reunion must have caused them to reproduce their early start up days of playing cover band music! I went to hear their songs and they played so many other bands songs it was frustrating. Really a waste of expensive tickets for what they played.
