Thanks For The Memories, Hilly.

1973 - 2006
Playing an encore, Patti Smith closed the show with her classic song "Gloria," rocking the house and causing the crowd to shout "Hey Ho. Lets go!"

As the show ended minutes before 1 a.m., Smith shouted: "33 years! The same age as Jesus. Goodnight, everybody."

No tears were evident as the lights came on -- just smiles and lots of camaraderie, even among strangers. No one was in a rush to leave.
