Kathleen would just like to say that the band that she saw last night was the farthest thing from a "tired old has been" band. She was expecting absolutely NOTHING from this concert. Kathleen was more excited about the company she was keeping and the food and drink than she was about the music - BEFORE the show. The reports have been so dire that she figured that they would finish the tour and crawl away home to lick their wounds. Once again these guys have sucked her back in.

This was an awesome show, done by a bunch of professionals who were genuinely having a good time together playing music. Jon gave a few nice speeches but most importantly he said (and Kathleen is paraphrasing) "We ain't goin' nowhere". He also said that "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger". He also gave a nice speech about Phil and his new baby and how he came right back to the tour (not letting anyone down).

Kathleen finally got to hear more songs from the "new" album, there were five of them played last night. No, Jon didn't attempt "Always" or "Dry County" but what he did do he did well - Kathleen loved "Thick As Thieves".

Was it the best show of theirs that Kathleen have seen - nope - not even close. But it was a good solid show albeit a bit short. She knew it was a casino going into it and they are always short. It was happy and enjoyable and she heard some new stuff - good enough for me.
