I’m in for night 1, unfortunately already had tickets to a ballgame on Saturday. Never seen a show in the Ballroom before though, anything worth knowing about it?

Setup is a little weird.. long and narrow with the stage in one of the corners on the narrow end.

Not nearly as bad as it used to be though. It’s a solid venue.

That looks a lot like the Minglewood hall in Memphis.

I haven't been to the Cannery in years, but best I recall, it is not nearly as big as Minglewood.

No, it's not. It's nice room though. The sound on the rail is not great but of course it's the rail. A few years ago we spent one night on the rail and the second by the soundboard and I had no idea how nice sounding the room was before that. The only problem with the venue at all are the sight lines, but get there early, front or back, and you're good.

So Bryan (beaverdamsfinlaw) is coming to the Birmingham show solo; I can’t swing them midweek, but I’m thinking of meeting him in Nashville. Grandpa is following the band!

Any advice on hotels? Everything seems ridiculously expensive around the venue ($400-$800 per night). I don’t mind paying a little more to be close to the venue, but these rooms are outrageous! We also don’t mind ubering outside of downtown.

Any suggestions from those who know Nashville?

Unfortunately anything near the Ballroom or downtown is gonna be exorbitant over the weekend. If you’re ok with Ubering there’s plenty of places in east Nashville or down I-24 that aren’t too far. There’s also probably cheaper options in north and west Nashville, but I don’t know those parts of town well.

I'm staying at an Airbnb in East Nashville for about $60 a night. The area is awesome so we will spend the majority of the time there and uber downtown for both shows. I booked shortly after the shows were announced so I'm not sure what is affordable/left.

I've stayed at the Nashville Hostel before. It's in the center of downtown and only about a 7/10 mile walk to the Cannery. You can do dormitory style for super cheap (like $30 a night) or step it up to a private room for 2 or 4 people. I'm not sure what the pricing is on the private rooms but I can guarantee you it will be WAY cheaper than a $400.

We haven't been in a few years, but the Best Western Music Row is our go-to, affordable and walkable to downtown (not sure about Cannery, though).

I also got cussed out by Cowboy Jack Clement in the hotel bar years ago, so ya never know who you'll run into.
E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle.

That place used to be fairly reasonable but the last couple times I've checked it's been north of $200 per night.

Rooms around Nashville are pretty sparse next weekend. There is a place in west Nashville I always stay these days and they were down to 3-4 rooms.
The best Western on Music Row was booked up and so were a couple others near downtown that I checked into.

I bit the bullet last night and bought show tickets. Bryan and I found a reasonable room at the Super 8 Whyndhm Nashville West...appears to be about 10 Miles from the venue, so we may be paying out the ass for uber after the show. But we’ll be at the rock show.

I’ll see y’all Friday, and Bryan will see some of y’all early this week in Birmingham. Safe travels, heathens!

Ended up selling my football tickets, so I’m now in for both nights. Hoping the mood at the show will be celebratory after Election Day!

Spent the morning talking over breakfast with a cousin about our favorite moments from the show last night. The boys rocked as hard as they always do (as did Lilly Hiatt), and I never fail to have the biggest, dumbest grin on my face every time they break into Let There Be Rock. Can’t wait to do it all again tonight.

Although I walked away with a huge smile on my face, I can’t deny tonight fell a bit short of my expectations. It was pretty clear that after 5 straight nights , the boys simply ran out of steam. 10 minutes short of two hours tonight, no extended jams (the quickest hell no ive seen). Poor repeat song selections. I mean, not only were half of the songs repeated from last night, several were played three nights in a row. You can’t play dead drunk, guitar man, angels, sounds better, heathens.... but babies in Cages and what it means gets three nights in a row? Ouch. Just seemed like they went through the motions tonight. Again, I love every minute I have with this band and tonight was no exception but when I compare / contrast The Rock Shows I’ve seen, tonight was by far my least favorite.

I didn't attend any of these shows so I can't comment directly, but I have felt similar in the past. I think the band sets such a high bar and repeatedly hit and exceed it that sometimes when they play an average show it feels like a letdown.

Patterson was losing his voice so I give them a pass on show length. He appeared to be struggling quite a bit during some tunes.
I do have some quibbles with the song selection but I still enjoyed both shows a great deal.

Have felt that way a lot with them.
Band plays very minimal songs from BTCD, TBTD & Go Go Boots. Would be nice to get more of those songs back into rotation.

There were 27 songs played on Friday. Nine of them were played again last night. That’s not half.
All 5 of the songs you wish they had played last night were played in Birmingham. They can’t play everyone’s favorite songs at every show.
Patterson’s voice was not as good as usual but the band performed with good energy throughout the show.
Babies In Cages is a new song that is very relevant right now. What It Means is a key song from AB that sadly remains relevant. It’s not surprising that the band would play those songs.

I thought the energy last night was just fine. I thought Do It Yourself was really great.
Ain't Talkin Bout Love and Ronnie And Neil really seemed to pop in the crowd. It seemed everyone in the place was screaming the lyrics to those two.
