This concert was at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater
in Irvine on August 30, 1998. You can tell for this concert, my friend
and I had horrible seats! This picture was the only one that
turned out even half-decent. You can hardly see the band, but...it's
Matchbox 20, I swear! We started out with seats in the back of the
second section back from the stage, all the way to the left.
But during the opening bands we slowly snuck closer and closer and ended
up with center seats in the front row of the second section back!
The concert was awesome. After Matchbox 20 played for a while, the
curtain closed and people started leaving. But my friend and I were
all upset and going, "No, it can't be over! They didn't play Long
Day!" Sure enough the curtain opens again and Rob Thomas comes out
and laughs at the joke he pulled. They finish the concert and even
do a little thank you to the opening bands.
