June 18th 2023 | Nikki Forte

I recently had the pleasure of catching Counting Crows with Dashboard Confessional at the PNC Pavilion in Cincinnati, Ohio, and I must say, it was an absolutely phenomenal experience from start to finish.

Dashboard Confessional, led by the talented Chris Carrabba, opened the show delivering a remarkable performance that exceeded all my expectations. From the moment Dashboard Confessional took the stage, the energy in the air was electrifying. Carrabba's passionate and emotive vocals resonated throughout the venue, captivating the audience from the very first note. The band's musicianship was flawless, with each member demonstrating their immense talent.

A night of musical bliss unfolded as Counting Crows took the stage. It was an evening that showcased the timeless talent and profound artistry of this iconic band, leaving the audience in awe and captivated from start to finish.

From the moment lead singer Adam Duritz's voice filled the air, the crowd was transported to a world where melodies carried emotions and lyrics painted vivid pictures. The band's performance was a masterclass in musicianship and storytelling, with each song weaving a tapestry of nostalgia, introspection, and unabashed vulnerability. As he sang, it felt as though he bared his very soul to the audience, sharing his joys, sorrows, and life experiences through his heartfelt lyrics.

Counting Crows' repertoire, spanning their illustrious career, showcased their versatility and songwriting prowess. The band effortlessly transitioned from spirited, upbeat anthems to soul-stirring ballads, leaving no stone unturned. Classics like "Mr. Jones" and "Round Here" ignited a collective fervor, while tender tracks like "A Long December" and "Colorblind" left a poignant imprint on our souls.

As the night drew to a close, I was left with a profound sense calm and gratitude. These two powerhouse bands had not only entertained but had reminded me of the power of music to heal, inspire, and bring people together; and togetherness is needed now, maybe more than ever before.
