Third Day concert (10.22.2009)

So, I mentioned last time that I was going to go to the Third Day concert. I also mentioned that I was going to go by myself, but I guess that's beside the point.

It was a blast.

The band Glory Revealed opened the show for Third Day. From what I gathered, Glory Revealed is a band that focuses on making Scripture-based songs. As in, literally, their songs are verses from the Bible. They sang Psalm 23, and I recognized Scripture from the book of Isaiah and Romans in other songs. They are a really good band -- I told myself I'd check out their CD's (they have two so far), but I haven't yet. I'm good with my current playlist (mostly Third Day and Todd Agnew), so when I start to get tired of listening to the same thing over and over, they're the next ones on my list. Here's a picture of Glory Revealed:

On to Third Day.

If I had any doubt that Third Day is my favorite band, this concert completely removed that doubt. These guys are just plain awesome. It was great to be able to sing along every song that they played*, and not only that, it just felt like being at church. I say that because the band had us praying more than once, and just being able to sing praises to God among such a great body of believers was pretty sweet. That week I wasn't feeling in the best of spirits, but the concert
definitely helped fill my cup to the brim. :)

*is that bad, btw? I wonder if I was annoying the people next to me. I don't know what concert "etiquette" is :/

Also, at some point during the concert, the band went off stage. I thought we were going on intermission, but what ended up happening was that they came and played among the audience. I mean, they brought the bare minimum as far as instruments go, but still, I don't think I've seen or heard a band that does that. They opened up the floor for song requests, and played one or two minutes of whatever songs people asked for. After a couple songs, they went back to the stage and played some more. I loved every song they played, but I'd say my favorites were "Thief", "Revelation", "God of Wonders", "Consuming Fire", and "Come on back to Me". I highly suggest you look those up on YouTube or something. They're really good.

The concert was about two hours long (if I remember correctly). I'm glad I got to go. I consider it a blessing to be able to not only go to my favorite band's concert, but to be able to worship alongside them as well. I tell you, it felt like church. I will pray for those guys, that God may continue to bless them in their efforts. I will also pray that He brings them back to the Dallas area again. I can be selfish like that. ;D

Anyway, needless to say, I can't wait for them to be in town again. I also look forward to their next CD, whenever that may come out.

Without further ado, here are some pictures and clips from the concert. Btw, the band let us record whatever we wanted from the concert and put it online. Just cause they're cool like that.

Consuming Fire

God of Wonders
