Rain or Shine

I mentioned this a long time ago but its finally set in stone. O.A.R will be releasing their tow day live in concert album entitled, “Rain or Shine”. Their two night set list from Chicago’s Charter One Pavilion was sensational and the best to date. After last summer of a sold out show and an extra 200 tickets were created for the concert, O.A.R. knew that they must record a show with the city of Chicago playing background to their musical festival. This past summer of ’09 the band played two consecutive nights and was set to record the full length of the set lists. The first show opened with friends, Robert Randolph and the Family Band and the second show was interrupted by thunderstorms all day and the Wailers (Bob Marley’s former group) skipped the show. After a long delay, O.A.R. came out and rocked a rain soaked crowd. Not only did they record all the fans favorites for the album but also kept all the acoustic sets from both performances. For all O.A.R. fans you have been appreciated for the first three live albums (Any Time Now, 34th and 8th, and Live from Madison Square Garden). These tow disc sets have captured the moment of a one the greatest live performing band from U.S. but the band has taken it a step further for all to enjoy. They are collectively releasing all 37 songs from both concert dates including a performance of Led Zeppelins “Fool in the Rain” with Robert Randolph and the Family Band. Also for the first time, the band recorded “Tonight” which was their first song ever written and “Rhythm of Your Shoes”. The album can be pre-ordered on their website along with a deluxe edition that includes pictures of the live performance and a signed setlist from either date.

These two shows were phenomenal including the rained out party on the second night. I was also lucky to work and hang with the band as well that night and week later was confirmed from the band that there recording the show for a possible live album. So “Get Away” and get ready to dive into one great four disc live album. It will be released on January 12th, 2010. I will put out another post before then to remind all you readers. Here are the set lists from both nights. Enjoy….

    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Cheers!
