Bonnaroo Main Stage

Sunday, June 12, 2005
Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival
Manchester, TN


Sunday at Bonnaroo really was a special day. Great setlist, and the highlight was probably Dear Prudence. Bobby forgot the words to St. Stephen, which was quite humorous, but then remembered once we sang it for him. I'm glad so many people got to see Ratdog play on the main stage. It's such a great way for people to find out about them. Bobby and the boys did not disappoint either. Try and find a recording of the Jack Straw.

Ratdog is a very capable band and they really did shine on Sunday at Bonnaroo. The only complaint was that the went into Cassidy and Dear Prudence in almost the same order as their last show (Marin Civic Center), but I guess that they figured that since only 2-300 people showed up at their last show nobody would notice. The highlight was definitely St. Stephen, which was awesome. Also they made it quite clear when the show was over, which was nice. Good show definitely worth a download.

I wish I could agree with what the other reviews said. I do agree that the boys all played really well. However, my complaint was the setlist. This has always been a band with BALLS, but this has to be the safest set I've ever heard them play. It reads like what a greatest hits record might look like. Prudence was the only one that was even a little bit exciting. It seems like they had an opportunity to blow some people away but instead they just blew it. I remember the At a Siding>Terrapin Flyer from the Alpine Valley family reunion. That's how you make new fans guys! Debut something for us, or at least dust off an old chestnut. Oh well. I'm still a fan... I'm just saying....

Excellent show; the set was almost as good as the weekend. I wish that he had a little bit longer to play, but the renditions of Playin' and Sugar Mag were phenomenal.
