Photo Gallery: Counting Crows + Dashboard Confessional @ Red Hat Amphitheater – July 29th 2023

’90s alternative rock icons Counting Crows have continued to tour over the years despite having released their last full-length album back in 2014.  This summer they have once again hit the road for a lengthy trek across North America dubbed The Banshee Season tour, with Dashboard Confessional joining in support for all but a few shows.  Making this year’s tour even more special is the fact that it is the 30th anniversary of their multi-platinum award-winning debut album, August and Everything After.

It was a hot summer Saturday night that saw The Banshee Season tour roll into Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh NC on July 29th.  The venue was absolutely heaving with fans sweating in the sauna-like humidity and heat generated by the bright warm summer sunshine as Dashboard Confessional took the stage at 7pm.  The tenacity of the eager fans was absolutely paid back as Dashboard Confessional delivered a high-energy set that was every bit as sizzling as the summer sun.  The venue was positively buzzing before Counting Crows had even come out.  When the Crows did emerge for their set, kicking off with the trio of “Sullivan Street,” “Come Around,” and “Mr. Jones,” the crowd went positively insane.  It was an impressive start that only went up from there.  The band were locked in as they delivered a solid mix of hits and fan favorites, without straying too far into improv and experimentation with their sonic foundation.
