PostSubject: Third Day Concert Tonight   Mon Jun 18, 2018 4:34 pm

My wife and I are going to see Third Day in Nashville tonight.  We've seen them before, but this is one of the last shows they will ever do here as they are calling it quits at the end of this year.  They scheduled one show and it sold out quickly.  They then scheduled a second date (tonight) and it also sold out.  So, they added a THIRD DAY.  LOL  That show is also sold out.

It will be cool to see the guys one last time.  This will be my fourth time seeing them and they always put on a cool show.  With this being the farewell tour, I do hope they stay away from some of the softer radio songs and focus on more obscure tracks.  I am betting, though, that this will be a fan pleaser show with all their biggest hits being done.  Still, I can dream, right?

The show was quite good!  To be honest, that has to be the most clear live band I have ever heard.  It was loud enough to drown out people talking yet you could hear every note and every instrument.

To start, worship leader Matt Maher came out and did a handful of songs either just on an acoustic guitar or piano.

Then, Mark Lee (Third Day guitarist) came out with the rest of the band and did several songs from his new EP and talked about his new book Hurt Road.  His sound reminded me of some 80s pop rock band that I can't place but was cool nonetheless.

Then, Mac Powell came out with the same band members but added a different lead guitarist.  They performed as Mac Powell & The Family Reunion.  They showcased several songs from Mac's new album.  While his new stuff leans more to the country side, overall his new stuff sounds like a cross between The Eagles and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers--just with Mac's highly recognizable crooning.

Then, the real show started.  Oh, man!  What a walk down memory lane.  They played at least one song from every album in CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER until the encore.

Here's what they did:

Consuming Fire (from their S/T debut)
My Hope Is In You (from Conspiracy No. 5)
I've Always Loved You (from Time)
Sky Falls Down (from Time)
Thief (from Offerings)
Show Me Your Glory (from Come Together)
Sing A Song (from Offerings II)
I Got A Feeling (from Wire)
Tunnel (from Wherever You Are)
Revelation (from Revelation)
Children Of God (from Move)
Miracle (from Miracle)
Soul On Fire (from Lead Us Back)
Revival (from Revival)

For the Encore:

Blackbird (from the S/T debut)
Love Song (from the S/T debut)
God Of Wonders (from Offerings II)

They also did a snippet of a couple of worship songs that were not theirs nor had they recorded.  The show was amazing, but you can tell that the two guys left of the original lineup were tired.  They've been at this nonstop for over 25 years.  Brad Avery, Tai Anderson, and David Carr had all previously departed from the band to move on to other things.

So, it is sad that this is happening, but I fully understand it.  I would bow out as well.  When you are dangerously close to becoming a cover band with few or no original band members left and your most recent album is mostly unnoticed by your fan base, then it is probably time to stop.  Who knows, though.  There could be a Third Day reunion album in the years ahead.  But, if Petra (with Bob and John) or Rez or Whiteheart or DC Talk or (insert band name of choice here) are any indication, I wouldn't hold my breath.  For a lot of veteran bands, done simply means done.

That's pretty cool, but looks like Mac is certainly setting himself up for a solo career (and trying to drag as many Third Day fans with him as possible).

Sounds like an awesome concert, Chris, with a very unusual programme.
