This was the first concert I've actually wanted to cover in a long time. Now if I could just shoot Pink Floyd...
If you'd like to read some local bloggers' reviews on the concert, please check out Miss New Orleans and Wang Chi's House of Pancakes. Additionally, Tommy Shaw was running a quasi-blog (no archive) about the tour on the band's official Web site.
