Blind Melon in Albuquerque, NM

Auto Date Monday, February 7th, 2011

Blind Melon were playing in Albuquerque, NM last friday. The show was at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and the band opened for Candlebox. “Candlebox rocked! I have not seen those guys in years, it was great to catch up with them as people and great to hear them as a band!!” said Brad Smith after the show. Despite the crazy weather and the fact that New Mexico was having a shortage of gas, the show went fine. “It was great to play Blind Melon songs again and see familiar faces!” Brad Smith said.

Ryan Conway of the Blind Melon Forum was there and, once again, is kind enough to share his photos and videos with the melonhead community! Click the picture below to see more or visit Ryan’s website at
