Fabulous show, lots of familiar tunes and some surprises. Here are most of the highlights:

Had to Cry Today
Low Down
Forever Man
Them Changes
Presence of the Lord
Glad
Well Alright
Pearly Queen
Tell the Truth
No Face, No Name, No Number
After Midnight
Split Decision
Ramblin On My Mind (EC Acoustic Only)
Georgia on My Mind (SW B3 only)
Little Wing
Voodoo Chile
Can't Find My Way Home
Dear Mr. Fantasy
Crossroads

I left out a few, may have messed up some of the titles, but the bulk of it is here. I am sure this will pop up on Dime and elsewhere very quickly. Anyone going to the remaining shows: You are in for a treat!!!

My schedule is pretty crazy today as I have late meetings and I have a 4:30 wakeup call tomorrow morning. Any idea as to what time the show began and what time it ended?

Thanks, there were some surprising choices. I would not have expected Little Wing, Voodo Chile, or even Glad for that matter. Did you buy the program, and if so, was it worth it? Can't wait for Thurs.

Sounds like a great set list. I wouldn't think there will be many changes in the list. This is going to be good!

1. You can bet there were some tapers there... security was very lax, no problem to sneak in gear. Very likely there will be video as well as audio.

2. The show started about 8:20?? and ended right at 10:40. Getting in and out of the Garden was pretty easy. I had not been there since 1972.

3. I did not buy the program but I could not resist a shirt, despite its $35 price tag. It's been a long time since I bought a shirt at a show, but halfway through I decided I needed one.

4. Agreed. Clapton's shows are pretty consistent from show-to-show, but between the two of them, there is so much material, that they may sneak some other stuff in.

Very impressive show. And I was VERY surprised to hear Voodoo Chile. Winwood played the organ on the original version on Electric Ladyland.

My only disappointment, and this may sound petty, was that after very inspiring versions of Glad, Voodoo Chile, Dear Mr Fantasy, and Little Wing, they played a not so inspiring and tired version of Crossroads for the encore. It was if they didn't save up enough gas in the tank for the encore. And I know they played Crossroads together early in their careers, but I would have really enjoyed something else like Gimme Some Loving at that point.

This just makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I mean this is legendary stuff. How lucky anyone was that attended. Should a tape show up with a Vine to follow....
Count me in.

Crossroads was played at a slow tempo, and I agree it would have been nice to go out with a band like Gimme Some Lovin"... as it was I had a hard time getting to sleep- that would have put me away.

WRT to tapes- while not as legendary as the Zep O2 show, that one resulted in about 15 different versions of video and audio. This show has several nights, so there should be some nice copies surfacing.

Thanks for the setlist Alan! Killer show last night! The biggest highlight for me was when Eric played 'Double Trouble'!

This sounds divine!!! Wish I could be in the audience for one of these shows but love hearing from those who were (and grateful for technology - thanks, Pam, for sharing those clips!)

Cool - also cool to see the camera man on stage - I assume we'll see some pro-video at some point . . .

I'm hoping so, too. An official DVD (and live CD, too!) would be more than I could ask for.

But, the pessimist side of me got to thinking that they could've just been there for the overhead video screens.

A friend of mine who flew back from SoCal to see the show said that, too...where in the set did they play it?

Well, lucky me, my friend just called me with an extra. I almost got one for Thursday but ended up not being able to go. And poof all of a sudden I get a phone call for tonight's show. I am thrilled. Can't wait to see them and it's a decent seat. I hope they do Glad again. As for Little Wing, I prefer Warren on it. LOL.

Now that's a show I would make to NYC to see. If only I would had tickets and money. Sounds like a memorable night.

Double Trouble was played near the middle of the set (maybe before Pearly Queen). It's one of my favorite blues songs, so it was so great to hear it live!

Thanks so much for sharing your experience last night, and the set list. Love Double Trouble and have a soft spot for Pearly Queen. Wish I could have been there!

Pam, its not Thursday yet, but it is Tuesday which means i get to attend tonight!! I will try my best to remember a setlist.

I really hope they play Well Alright again, that is one of my favorites. Does that song remind anyone else of the ABB during the intro to that song. It reminds me of Le Bres or something like that for some reason.
