Incubus an Linkin Park rock the Dome on the Honda Civic Tour!

It had been far too long since I had seen incubus live and I almost missed it. Last week was exceptionally crazy for me as the summer concert season came mostly to an end. I was still stuck in Seattle/Tacoma traffic as MUTEMATH took the stage which bummed me out because I hear they are out of this world live! Fortunately I got to the Dome just in time for Incubus to hit the stage and this was my very first capture of the night and definitely one of my favorites of the week. Oh and wouldn't you know it... Its a bassist! Ben Kenney has been rockin' with Incubus for years now and while I do miss Mr. Dirk Lance I enjoy the energy and style that Kenney brings to the stage.

Incubus front man Brandon Boyd seemed a little off tonight but later explained to the crowd that he had been feeling a bit under the weather the past few dates. Fortunately for Boyd the Honda Civic Tour was coming to a close. I wish you a quick recovery and some much deserved time off.

At one point during their set Einziger brought out a piano and some wine glasses. With his guitar hanging around his torso he pour two glasses of wine and made a toast to his frontman. They drank and went right into "Hello" with Einziger on the keys!

Linkin Park closed out the night with a super long intro. This Honda Civic Tour is a huge production. You know its gonna be a good show when the backstage parking lot is over flowing with tour busses and semi trucks. Not to mention its a co-headlining tour. Anyway, Linkin Park also opened for themselves... on the big screen. In between bands, the crowd sat through what I would describe as, Honda Civic commercials featuring Linkin Park! Woohoo! Now dont get me wrong I like the behind the scenes footage as much as the the next music fan and Ill give props to anyone who can put a successful tour like this on the road but this seemed a bit much and uber cheesy! Oh well the boys all rocked it and the fans got what they wanted. Everyone goes home happy!

I love it when a band play a long set! It was very surprising to me that the bands played as long as they did.
