“Someday” was here and it was well worth the wait! American rock band Sugar Ray closed the show with their Billboard hits “Every Morning” “Answer the Phone” and “Fly”!

The D was the place to be after the show! Where else do you celebrate an amazing night but at the World Famous LONGBAR! It was a packed house as a huge crowd formed to get a glimpse of their favorite bands, Lit and Everclear at the LONGBAR. The guys enjoyed a post-show drink while watching the D’s renowned flair bartenders.
