So I am watching the home run derby on TV (well, the pre-derby show if that makes sense). The Counting Crows are doing a little 1 song performance. One thing you notice having a HDTV is that it is really easy to figure out when there is no energy in a live music performance.
It probably has to do with there isn’t a single fan within a couple hundred feet of the stage, the very unnecessary micro fireworks, and a band that was doing their best to charge up the crowd, but clearly had no energy to feed off of.
This is baseball, we don’t want live music performances, especially ones that are very staged and artificial.
