Daughtry, Theory of a Deadman and Cavo Concert Review

I am finally getting around to blogging about the Daughtry concert from November 30.

The day was crazy. I had to work until 2:00 p.m., then run home and bring Princess Ivi to a doctor's appointment. We arrived at the appointment at 3:34 p.m. only to discover that her appointment was at 3:10 p.m., not 3:30 p.m. so rather than being 4 minutes late, we were 24 minutes late. I hate it when that happens.

On top of that, the doctor was running late. They didn't bring us back until 5:00 p.m. We would have left but since it was for Princess Ivi's last shots for her Hepatitis and her HPV and I was worried that it would mess up the whole process and we would have to start them all over.

This was Princess Ivi's idea to kill time while waiting for the doctor.

After quickly throwing on sneakers at home, we headed back to Gainesville. It took some hunting but we were able to find a parking spot with a short walk to the O'Connell Center. Unfortunately, we had to climb to the nosebleed section. I imagine I know how they felt hiking Mt. Everest. Except Mt. Everest wasn't built out of wobbly bleachers.

We arrived just after Cavo took the stage (early). Cavo was awesome. They sounded great and they looked great. And we could actually hear the words he was saying (more on that later). I really hope Cavo does well and continues to be so successful so that they eventually have their own show because they made the whole night worth it. Here is a pick of the stage...

After Cavo, Theory of a Deadman came on. They looked good but unfortunately, they didn't sound good at all. The music was so loud, you couldn't hear the words. It sounded like he was mumbling quite a bit too.

Here is a view from our seats.

After Theory of a Deadman, the crew came out and put this curtain up. I thought it looked like a present. Too bad a shirtless Daughtry wasn't behind it.

When the lights dimmed, the light show began...

After they dropped the curtain, Daughtry came out. He looked wonderful but again, the problems with the sound.

I think some of the sound problem is that this is the O'Connell Center where the basketball team plays so the acoustics pretty much suck.
All in all, it was fairly disappointing except for Cavo. We actually left shortly after Daughtry took the stage since we couldn't hear anything.
