    Was there too!!! I agree that the encore was amazing! Severa songs I don't think I'd heard live which was really made me happy!!! Had floor seats and we went up to the stage after the show to take a few up close pics... Noticed a guitar pic laying on the stage JUST outside of my reach but all the stage hands had gone backstage. Nobody around that could hand it to me. The arena crew (not allowed back stage) then told me I had to leave so they could clean up. It was agony to see the pic just out of reach and then had to leave. It was a black Garth pic too.

    I was on the floor too in SEC-1, but I bolted to go meet Karyn Rochelle after instead of going to the stage. I'll probably head up to the stage after this sunday's show.

    Fantastic show; I thought Cleveland was the loudest I've ever heard and I was wrong. We broke Garth tonight! After a 41 minute encore he dropped his guitar on the stage with a clang. He played full songs in the encore including A Friend to Me, Mom, MTAM, Turn the Page and American Pie.

    Wow, that's really cool. Hope someone did get photos so you can remember it. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience.

    Here's this video: grab it quick since Garth's people will likely have it taken down soon.

    Went to the 4/22 show and had such a great time, went back to the finale on Sunday. I think I'd have to give the edge to the Sunday show. Crowd was just as loud, if not louder than Friday. Encore was better on Sunday.. he played more songs and some really old stuff (Friday we heard a few more 'new' songs that the crowd just didn't know that well... although he did hit Fever and Red Strokes on Friday which was cool)

    SUnday 4/24 show:
    - Man against Machine
    - Rodeo
    - ??? (There may have been a song here, I can't remember)
    - Beaches
    - River
    - 2 Pina Coladas
    - Papa Loved Mama
    - Aint Going Down
    - Unanswered Prayers
    - That Summer
    - Thunder Rolls
    - In ANothers Eye
    - American Girl
    - How Do I live
    - ??? Prizefighter? (I think)
    - Purple Rain
    - She's in Love with a Boy
    - Shameless
    - Baton Rouge (crowd reaaallllly into this one)
    - Friends in low places
    - The Dance

    Encore, remembered as best as I can:
    - If Tomorrow Never Comes
    - Turn the Page
    - ??? (song here...but can't remember)
    - She's Gonna Make It
    - ??? (song here... can't remember this one either)
    - Mom
    - More Than a Memory
    - A Friend to me
    - Much Too Young to Feel this Damn Old
    - Standing Outside the Fire
    - American Pie

    He recognized several other signs in the arena but elected not to play them. One specifically I remember was Anybody but Bill. Told them thanks for the sign but he wasn't going to play that one.

    One other note I would mention, just because I see people talk about this from time to time... during Friends in Low Places, Garth walked over to someone down at the end of the stage where they walk on and off and asked them 'how many times'. I'm not sure his mic was supposed to be on at the time, but you could hear them talking.. couldn't really hear the other person that well, but then Garth asked 'nine?' and said 'ok'. Then at the end of the song he held up nine fingers and did that many many hits/jumps. I honestly don't know if it means anything at all, but that's how it played out Sunday.
