Hey Rachel, any update on whether or not they are going to let you tape the show?
I talked to the venue finally and they said that the bands management has to give written consent to the entertainment company that booked the show. I let Brad know, so hopefully it is not too late. I know he is a very busy man......
Cool! I'll be looking for the fellow melonheads! Can't wait! Anyway, anyone have any idea how hard is it to meet the guys and/or get autographs? Have a copy of Soup, vinyl, and would love to get some j hancocks on it.
If this show is anything like they've done in the past it is very easy to meet the guys. They are very down to earth and humble as can be.

My first ever melon show. The drive from Michigan was so goddamn worth it. Front row? Holy shit. I think I invented a new way to soil myself. I got a ton of pictures if anyone wants some just message me. Some of them are even half way decent.
How can this mean anything to me When my brain don't feel anything at all I'll keep digging Till I feel something

Just so everyone knows that may be looking forward to my audio recording of Blind Melon last night......it didn't happen. I got in & set up my gear only to have the lady in charge come tell me to take it down and take it out to my car 10 freakin minutes b4 the band went on. I told her to go ask the band and she told me that they said no, which was a bold face lie as Brad and Glen both said she came back and asked them and they said yes. ( as they always do). So I was unable to tape due to the venue being ignorant, if they didn't want me to tape in their venue they should have just told me that in the first place and I would have respected their stand on the issue. I found it to be quite rude for them to lie to me and tell me the boys said no when they didn't. Anyhoon, besides that I had a blast at the show... Thank you to Blind Melon for all the ♥ they show me always. It was so nice to meet a bunch of Melonheads in person I've know from the internet for so long and to see all my friends that I have known too!!!!!

That was so super amazing!! I went up on stage & sang with the guys for Mouthful for the harmony...it was totally spur of the moment & he asked if someone would do it & I readily agreed...it was awesome!!! Since I was using Brad's mic, the sound went into his ears...I wish I could've heard myself, I'm pitchy & all over the place but it was cool as hell & I totally didn't care in the moment!!! I gotta put my pics on flickr or some photoshared place & then you guys can see the pics I got.

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!

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.

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
