Blackhawk, Mitchell, SD

Just came across a couple more interesting shots from this concert at Mitchell's "World's Only Corn Palace." Blackhawk played the Corn Palace Festival in August 1997. You'll find my original post about this concert here.

So here's what it looks like from the light control board, which is interesting the first time you see it. When you realize stage shows are designed to be seen from the audience side, the backstage view isn't always that cool.

If you really like seeing the little details of an artist's gear or what happens and gets said between songs, backstage is fun. Unfortunately, I've found sometimes it ruins the illusion and I would have much rather seen a show the way it was designed instead of how the crew does.
