I saw Live at an outdoor music festical in Florida called Livestock, where you went and camped next to a prison in this farmer's field and listened to music acts all weekend.
It was sort of surreal.
Live was one of the three headliners who played last, along with Bush and Hootie and the Blowfish and were touring in support of their second album (and I believe best selling album) Throwing Copper.
It was clear that they were beat, my guess would be with the unexpected success of the album they had added tour dates like crazy.
They arrived very shortly before their set and came out with very little in the way of a sound check and just hit it.
It was a very raw, very emotional performance.
