Fucking awesome

Flea came out and introduced jack irons, he played some contemporary drum solos and it was radical!! Then jack brought out Eddie and they performed a song together!! There was maybe 1/6 capacity in key arena because they did it so early. A very cool surprise!

  • Wish Eddie would have done that in New York. Sitting through Jacks Irons' set was painful.

    Awesome! We were lucky enough to catch the show in Vancouver last night, minus Eddie of course but thought it was a great show. Fwiw we really enjoyed Trombone Shorty as well.

    Trombone Shorty and Orleans Ave put on a terrific show. I first saw them in 2011 opening for DMB. 'Glad to hear you enjoyed the show.

    I was wondering why they changed the time of the show. had to trade in my tickets so I missed Jack's first songs. When I go to my seats, they introduced Ed, I was so excited I forgot to hit the 'record button' only got video after Ed finished singing...it was still fucking awesome.
    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
