What a fantastic concert. Paul came to sound check in a very good mood, put up with all our razzing & gave us a big welcome, which we gave right back. The food was great, real spicy. The concert was one of those special ones where you can't believe it, can hardly take it all in. His voice was smooth & pure especially on his solo acoustic songs, amazing. Of course the band was in good spirits too. Rusty got his little solo, the whole place reacted with applause as if to say oh, sorry, we forgot you with Paul being on stage. Abe once again blew everybody's mind, Brian was all over the place, I think he was having the most fun. Wix came on with the best licks I ever heard from him. The energy of the group & the crowd stole the show. They love him so much. So many characters in the audience, such a colorfull crowd, even some of Paul's relatives were there, but he didn't tell us which ones. The sound was pristine. The work they did on the arena made the acoustics perfect. Paul danced with us, cracked jokes, sang all his wonderful songs & then brought on the bagpipers. I thought I was in heaven. So worth it!
You pretty much said it all right here, and I agree with you (although no sound check for me). I had a great time and where I was sitting on the floor, everyone near us was high energy so that added a lot to it for me. The last time I saw Paul in Toronto the crowd sat down almost the entire time (on the floor!!). So yeah I was super happy and my poor feet are so suffering today. But, that's just fine too. ha!
