Collective Soul and Gin Blossoms

Performing together live at the The Stir Cove (Harrahs Casion) in Council Bluffs, Ia Aug. 30, 2019

The Gin Blossoms fired through an eighty or ninety minute set that included all the hits that you know and love. Of course Hey Jealousy is the band’s most recognizable song, I was definitely fan that night. But the Gin Blossoms is one of those bands that you probably know more of their music than you thought you might have. Their awesome set included Follow You Down, Even the Losers which was of course a great Tom Petty cover, Allison Road, Til I Hear It From You, Found Out About You, and Hey Jealousy.

At set break I chatted with a fan of Collective Soul, who explained how she loved both bands but was looking forward to CS because it was a band she listened to all the time as a kid and knew most of the music but had never seen them perform. She was thrilled she had this opportunity to see the Gin Blossons and was an awesome added bonus. The fans of both bands were excited, as it’s fitting of their more mature status with a more mature audience. We won’t say older, but you get what I mean.
