The evening started out sunny, but the clouds moved in and by the middle of Opus One, there was a steady light rain. By the time we finished Kansas City, the live audience consisted of the CTV crew who were broadcasting and videotaping the concert, Drew's parents, and three or four others who were huddled under umbrellas. The following three selections were omitted due to heavy rain:
