Tuesday night, after a surprise downpour cleared out, Allen Stone, The Goo Goo Dolls and Train took over the Stir Cove. It was a Tuesday, but the bands made everyone feel like it was a Friday night with the flooding of the Missouri River on the west of Harrah's, the back lot was closed for parking, causing a bit of a delay for concert goers entering the venue. But seems everyone made it, because the crowd "flooded" right on past it and enjoyed the show!
Allen Stone took the stage as people were entering the Cove and entertained them with his soulful jazzy sound dare I compare a Hall & Oates bluesy style. Allen was blonde with blue eyes and had this R&B side to his voice that felt he could've been related to Stevie Wonder if only by voice alone. The song Brown Eyed Lover had people swaying and snapping fingers. I had never seen Allen before and to be honest was my first time hearing the music. The performance was outstanding and I bought the vinyl record on the spot. (written by Penny)
The Goo Goo Dolls were set to take the stage at 8 pm, but with the potential for additional storms, the band took the stage 15 minutes early to attempt to beat the weath
