Have a great time Andrew! I saw him just last week in Toronto, it was an amazing treat for the senses. I got to meet him too, he's a really cool, laid back guy.
I'm sure you'll enjoy the show cool.gif

It was awesome smile.gif

No pics I'm afraid, there was a big sign prohibiting photography, but I later found out that most people ignored it so I could have got some pics dry.gif

Anyway, it was my first time seeing Steve life, and the Borgata Music Box is a pretty small venue so it felt very immediate and Steve is great with the audience, feels very intimate. We were 5 rows back, about 20 feet from him, and he and his band were having a great time.

The newer stuff was interesting, at times with 2 violins verging on a Celtic feel, and some 4 part lead harmonies were pretty amazing. All the old SV magic was there, but I particularly noticed he was a lot more playful on the guitar than most of the (10 year old) videos you see on You Tube - I guess he has to keep it fresh for himself. He played my 3 favourites, Tender Surrender, Whispering a Prayer, and For the Love of God - that was the encore. And this part I really liked - after he finished playing, instead of just running off stage, he thanked everyone for coming and by the end of it you felt like he was your personal friend - a really nice guy. Then he shook hands with people at the stage and so did the rest of the band. The show was around 3 hours, amazing value as the tickets were only $35 - my wife isn't particularly a SV fan, but she also loved it not least because he was so entertaining.

If you ever get a chance, go see him!

@Kosei - glad to hear we are neigbours smile.gif

Regards,

Andrew

I wanted to see him on this tour so bad... sad.gif
But I'm glad someone got to enjoy it, even if it wasn't me! Can't wait until the day that I can see him and/or Satch live...
