The Counting Crows opened the Buffalo Place Rocks Canalside concert series with a great set, but the weather was another story.

The rain started early in the morning and continued on and off right up to showtime.

A member of the crew said the band has played in all kinds of weather -- rain, snow, you name it. The only time we won't play is if there is a danger to the fans or the band.

In the end, the show went on, the fans had a ball and the Counting Crows delivered.

The show really must go on.

Unless they don't get paid -- then all bets are off.
