Playing to a packed house, The Innocent Criminals got the crowd moving tonight. After opening with "Faded", Ben told the audience that "I almost dressed up like Elvis." "Glory & Consequence" came out of the closet and sounded good. After "Forgiven", someone yelled out "Freebird." Ben said something like, "Man if you're going to ask for that song, you'd better be serious because we're going to play it." Laughing he continued, "and The Innocent Criminals are going to play it for 30 minutes just like Lynyrd Skynyrd!" The crowd erupted in laughter. Thoroughly enjoying himself, Ben stood up and started dancing during the beat-box solo in "Steal My Kisses."
