Today was the first of a two day run with Mercy Me. Tonight we closed the show, and they will close the show in Irvine. In the industry, it's what is called a co-bill. The great thing for fans is you get to see two headlining acts on the same stage, on the same night. The challenge is that both artists have to play shorter sets to accommodate each other time wise.
The crew did a good job of changing over the stage quickly, and was able to get us an extra 5 minutes for the show. It wasn't a huge crowd, but they seemed to really be into the show. We did a few things in this show we haven't done in a bit, like a full version of Cry Out to Jesus.
We had a good time hanging with the Mercy Me guys. The industry can tend to set us up to be competitive with each other. So, it was nice to hang out as friends.
