When the concert opened, both Counting Crows and Augustana were mixed together on the stage setting the evening’s energetic tone with the Crows’ powerful, solo-laden ride through Van Morrison’s classic “Caravan.” Throughout a pair of hard-boiled and magical sets the two bands revolved around each other, trading songs with shifting personal and sometimes combining forces where more than 15 people were playing together at the same time on the SPAC stage.

So this was obviously not a typical opener-then-headliner kind of rock show; rather, it was the realization of a concept that Counting Crows leader and exquisite singer Adam Duritz created and called the “Traveling Circus and Medicine Show.”
