I like that. Earth, Wind and Fire performed with an orchestra, and right up front they said "Thanks for showing up, everybody. We're gonna have a great time, and there's not gonna be an encore cause these guys are professional and they got places to be."
Saw the Chili Peppers at Music Midtown and I don't even think the lights went down before they SURPRISE came back on stage and ended with, surprise again, Give It Away. On top of that, they left the stage about fifteen minutes early. Cool.
