fun show. two sets. started about 9:10pm ended about 10:45pm. billed as intimate solo acoustic
jon was surrounded with lit candles suspended from the ceiling with the huge metal and glass object from his webpage with a candle behind it as a backdrop. jon was quite talkative and quite thankful and happy to have survived his respiratory collapse was his first show in 16 months.
first set was marred by tuning issues....stop and starts. should have paid more than $25 to have it tuned
first set opener jon on acoustic
yours is no disgrace
long distance runaround
sweet dreams (his wife's favorite piece)
somewhere along the way he swapped out the guitar and brought out one of those backpack guitars--the ones with the really narrow body. thought it sounded much better than the problematic acoustic up to that point....
he played a new tune and at least one other tune (sorry, I didn't keep a list, so both setlists are incomplete and don't know all the titles anyway)
ended the first set with owner of a lonely heart (hmm, no big orchestra hits....)
jon on (electric)keys--first song close to the edge and then back on guitar
he played long distance runaround again (sounded much better with the guitar now well-tuned)
i've seen all good people (with jon singing give peace a chance over the audience clap along)
everyone sang happy birthday to his wife janee--jon got choked up
finished out the set with roundabout and an earlier audience request:
gates of delirium
just remembered, there was an
And You and I
during the second set
Jeez, too bad he didn't play any of the classics.
Why isn't Jon on this year's Yes tour again???
listening to close to the edge now...
WOW he played Gates !!!!! NICE
