Going to an O.A.R. (Of A Revolution) concert isn’t unlike attending a Dave Matthews or Wilco show. It’s as much a fan driven event as it is a concert. Yes, the fans are rabid about the group, and they would be there come rain, shine, floods or a scorching heat wave.
First, O.A.R. chooses the groups they want opening up for them – not some record industry guy who has decided to “package” the tour with maximum money-making potential or some kind of a wide-exposure scheme for some band unrelated to the headliner’s music. (Who can ever forget the brilliant industry minds behind having Jimi Hendrix open for the Monkees way back when?)
