The crowd was thick and lively all night, filled with t-shirts and signs showing love to Rob and welcoming him back to the world of moe. The love in the room was particularly strong on Friday night, as the crowd matched the considerable emotion being created onstage. When the band addressed Rob’s recent cancer battle during the first set, the venue erupted. Rob lives relatively close to Portland, amplifying how grateful this particular crowd was that their man is healthy and playing once more.Highlights of the first set included the extended opening “Bring It Back Home” (a fitting tribute for Rob), the debut of new song “Who You Calling Scared”, and a cover of The Rolling Stones‘ “Dead Flowers” featuring a sit-in from local pedal steel guitarist Bill Waldron that followed. Set two highlights were ripe for the taking, including a massive set-opening “Big World” > “Ricky Marten” > “Time Ed” segment and a fantastic set-closing “Head”. Finally, the band returned for an encore performance of “Godzilla” to close out night one.moe. returns to Portland’s State Theatre tonight for their second performance of the weekend.
