Some quick things to note:
It was my very first Don Solo show!
Don was a little raspy at the start, struggled a little through NYM, got better as he went along.
He sounded great on the newer material, and Burn the Cornfield Down was a treat to hear!
Loved hearing the horns that were brought in for a couple of the songs, and I was shocked that he did Shangri-La as one of the encores! I think most everyone was as well!
It Don't Matter to the Sun was done as a group song and was great!
Really impressed by the back up singers, they all had great voices and I couldn't help but think it was kind of like Don's own talent show with this roster of different voices to showcase.

Thank you kt! Sounds great!

Shangri-la as an encore? There are many other songs I would have picked, but whatever! :shock:

Loved the show! My first Don solo show also. I love his new album, so it was great to hear so many of the songs live. He was also very chatty, which I loved. He seemed very nice to the young girls singing back up. Very encouraging. The only bad thing was we had to leave during The encore because we had to catch a train home. Missed Shangri la and All She Wants to Do Is Dance. I was surprised he played so late. Every other show I've been to at the Beacon always ended at 11:00. When I saw that someone was opening for him, I was afraid he wasn't going to play as long, but he played for 2 1/2 hours without a break!

SG, thanks for your thoughts! Glad you enjoyed it!

BTW I'm surprised he did "Everybody's Famous" - I don't think he's done that at any other show.

As for "Shangri-La" - well, I made my thoughts known on that elsewhere, lol.

Glad you liked it, though!

Sorry t.his is a little late. The previous reviews were spot on. It took a couple of songs for don's voice to warm up. At the end, he didn't seem to want the concert to end. The 3 female backup singers were fantastic. Will Hollis was introduced as band director and Scottie Crago was on drums. Don praised Stueart Smith as a great friend and musician and to whom he owes a lot.

This was the first anything Eagles concert for 2 of my nieces. They enjoyed it and commented how nice it was to sit and listen to the music. Disappointed that I didn't meet any other borders. Hopefully there will be a next time.
