I had moved my way to the center of the stage to get some better shots. A professional photographer dropped down out of my shot then asked me what I shot. I said Canon and he took off his lens and handed it to me. It was a Tamron 17-24 2.8. Nice. These are the shots I got with his lens.

During "Soul", the crowd went nuts. I didn't get to capture it, but there was moshing going on.

At one point Rocco turned around and dropped to the ground. No warning, just, bam! Everyone rushed up to the stage. He was on his knees playing his Dobro on the ground.

During the concert, I got to meet a guy who used to play with Rocco in Long Beach. So, I got to go with them after the show and meet the band.

Dave had this look on his face the entire show....hmmm....
