    Thanks for the quick reviews ltl, Soda, and Rambo. Glad you all had such a good time (in spite of the fact that Don was wearing the suit). Oh well, I guess we can't have everything! Sounds like a great show and well worth the trip. I know I said this in another thread, but I also like it that Don is putting some different songs in the set list, but I would personally prefer that he chose songs from his own impressive catalog of work instead of so many covers. I'd much rather hear songs like My Thanksgiving, Talking to the Moon, Lilah, You Don't Know Me at All, or Taking You Home. And OBTW, those songs are just for starters!

    I definitely would have traded one of the covers for My Thanksgiving, since it went with the theme and I was looking forward to hearing it. Maybe It Don't Matter to the Sun.

    Wanted to add a few side notes… you can totally tell Don is a timekeeper musician. He was continually doing hand motions to where the beat was or should be. At one point, I’m sure he was playing air drums. He was bouncing around and doing frequent little jumps too, very energetic. I will say, I loved it when Peter was rockin’ out the guitar leads and Don would do the little hand gesture or point to him, as it to say, “he’s the man”. It was cool.

    I loved it when he took that mike off the stand and worked the stage. Too bad he only did it for the encores!

    LovinTheLight-great pixs!

    FYI: The bar band was J D and the Straight Shot. J.D. is James Dolan a friend of Joe Walsh. Joe also used the band to open for him when he did a solo tour summer before last and he also did a special guest appearance on JD's latest album. But more importantly, JD is chairman of the board of cablevision.

    Glad everyone had a great time. Loved your review Nancy.

    Great reviews LTL and Soda. I don't have time to read anymore but surely will find some extra time tomorrow to read the rest of the reviews. It's so exciting to see that some of the show is the same as the one I saw. I can see his face with every expression you both wrote about.

    So Don did not play at all? Guitar or percussion???

    Man, I love to see him on the drums.
