Citizen Cope’s deep, bluesy, folk voice immediately captured his audience. His fans watched in awe of his stage presence, dazzled by his charming and intriguing performance. As I sat and admired I couldn’t help but feel relaxed and reminisce on past loves and marked memories. His music transports his audiences to their respective pasts, somewhere familiar but serene. In a world as hectic as today we could use an artist as steely cool and calm as Citizen Cope on every street corner. Clarence Greenwood, the man behind Citizen Cope has been touring for ten years and we hope to see him for at least another ten, because, evident by the crowds reactions, Colorado loves him.
A barefoot Adam Duritz walks out to the stage, causing the crowd to erupt. The energy level instantly escalates to an upbeat, outgoing vibe. The band starts out with their greatest hits: “Round Here” and “Mr. Jones," but keeps the audience’s attention with their catchy heart felt songs and performance. The whole crowd sings along to every song, creating that beautiful human corporation that only a concert such as this can create. Adam and the band expressed their love for Colorado and the pot community with a big, “Now let’s go back to getting stoned, Colorado!” and Colorado, definitely gave the love right back.
