This from Grant Burgess
When I arrived in Wisconsin for the shows in Wisconsin there was a heatwave. When Robert left Wisconsin yesterday, the heatwave was gone!
I saw Robert in two different types of venues and almost two differnt extreme crowd situations. The rock fest in Caddott was one of the least favorable situations I had seen Robert play in. The festival was a four gathering of a variety of bands and it seemed like most people were there to party instead of watching the band. While the crowd was receptive to Robert, I did see many people get up and leave when Robert was playing material from Dreamland. It seemed like many people here were in their own “dreamland” as groups of people were constantly chanting Stairway To Heaven. On the way out I heard many people say that they were dissapointed because he did not play Stairway To Heaven. Robert did do a short set of about 75 minutes and I think Song to the Siren was left out because he felt this number would not go over well with the crowd.
