Rob Thomas in Kansas City

Travis and I went to see Rob Thomas at the Midland tonight. It was awesome! Most of his songs were from his two solo albums. He also played Dear Joan from his Tabitha's Secret days – one of the most beautiful songs ever – and a cover of I Melt With You by Modern English. Carolina Liar opened for him. I'd never heard of them before but they did a pretty good job.

We had really great seats on the left side about 14 rows back. Our row was one seat longer than all the rows in front of us so there were no seats in front of mine – I was basically sitting in the aisle. Once again, Travis was heckled by the short girls who were stuck behind him for being too tall and not being into the show. I had no sympathy for them because they talked incessantly through Dear Joan. Sorry bitches – you're not a true fan of Rob if you can talk through that song.


This was my second time seeing Rob on a solo tour. The first time was at the Uptown and Anna Nalick opened for him.

I've seen Matchbox Twenty five times. I can't remember where all the shows were but I've seen them with these openers:

Soul Asylum
(the best concert ever – my two favorite bands on one stage!)

Shelby Lynne

Sugar Ray

Mutemath followed by Alanis Morrissette
