Hi all! This was my first Melon show and I feel blessed! The acoustic set was just perfect! I got in with my hubby and had to sit through a nasty DJ gig (they played the Spice Girls *throws up*) cos we wanted to have front seats. The room was pretty much empty...Little I knew then that it was going to become filled with love for this band! Songs I remember: Walk, Sleepy House, Skinned (Karen gave Travis the kazoo), Change (which brought me to tears, I knew ), Galaxie, No Rain, Paper Scatcher...and??? Can't remember...It was a brilliant experience!I feel blessed! After the set we went to see Papa Thorn (who wore the coolest BM shirt) as a friend of ours used to rent a room from him in Uni so we told him and chatted with him a while, told him we have Blind Melon lyrics engraved on our wedding rings and he was really nice to us, a very fresh spirit there! Kudos to Mr. Thorn! After that we saw the Wailers and just like Meredith I danced the set through and LOVED it! I hadn't danced like that in a while and Wailers on the Sand was just Ahhhhhhh! Then it was time for the guy from the Beastie Boys and, forgive me if you are a fan, but I could have done without! Finally, around 9.15 they came on! I thought they could have sounded louder but the show was grand! You'll see a setlist here, just know Wishing Well was not performed and neither was Mouthful of Cavities. The guys seemed to be having fun and the energy was reciprocated. Travis was real sweet when the police arrived to get one of the climbers down and he said "He's alright, he's just having fun" and Meredith girl, you rock! I would have peed my pants had it been me!!!! The guys were also really cool after the show and Brad and Rogers were kind enough to sign the setlist for me. My hubby talked briefly with Rogers and was trying to get insights on St. Andrew's (since he's learning it with his band) and asked "there are some fills towards the end that are nearly inaudible"; Rogers's reply was "Oh, just shitty playing, probably a late night thing....", lol! My hubby has been a fan since the old days (he saw them at Woodstock and somewhere else in the early 90's) so he was totally stoked to be able to share a few words with them. THANK YOU BLIND MELON! And here are my crappy pictures, sorry my camera is just not the best! Hope you enjoy! Oh and sweet merch..and CHEAP!!!! One question: does anybody know why they didn't play any songs from the latest album?
patzeller: ive seen the band in MN in 2015, Denver (home) in 2016 and last night in Chicago. Despite Brad missing, the bands chemisty was the best I’ve ever seen. Awesome awesome show. Guess I’ll be heading to Edmonton in June!

melonwheels: Picture of BLiND MeLon on MSN ...under "one hit wonders"...... hit or no hit..... the people in this band have done miracles for me and they dont even know it. The music from them can do magic....Thank you to all the guys in the MeLon band.

jaakko: Hi there! I´m new here! Straight to the question... Is there any possibilities that Blin Melon would tour somewhere in europe someday? I need to see and hear my all time favourite band live before I die. Do I need to fly to U.S.A?

crobar: Anyone know who played the harmonica lead in the song "change" at woodstock '94?

crobar: If you watch the video on youtube for "Change" at woodstock '94, a dude is welcomed out on stage to play the lead harp. Shannon thanks him but you can't hear the name. The guy killed it and I'd like to know who he is/was. Any help is appreciated.

blindemme: I always wonder why a guy who has everything going for him does that.

lisa: Blind melon take me back to a really happy time of leaving school and having the world at my feet. I am about to watch the doc. I am looking forward to seeing what the band thought of history being made and the creation of timeless music. RIP Shannon

blindmango: Hi, I'm looking for anyone with info on the promotional Soup Can from 1995. How rare are they? How much do they go for? What was in side? I cant find anything that confirms the contents or special and surprising promotional ingredients. Thanks
