2 hours 40 minutes of blissful magic--a changed up setlist which i can't recall,but they pulled out nuggets like "Rain Down Tears"--an old RCO all satars song--Clarence Clemons joined in the horn fun for a song & "Long Black Veil" sung by Teresa was outstanding---alot of Manuel songs & Rick...Shape I'm In,Tears of Rage,I Shall Be Released,etc.--they added a song (now 3 ) From Dirt Farmer--False Hearted Woman Blues--also the GD's Deep Elem Blues,Van's In to The Mystic featuring Phobe Snow...great show start to finish--very inspirational--nice,polite,fun crowd--respectful of the music...no talkers & drunken idiots--so all around a perfect evening---great seats & Ollabelle,who opened were great--loved John The Revelator & Ripple--missed Amy --she was home with the baby.....Levon's drumming was masterful & his singing rich,beautiful & real...

The show I saw 3/7 was also fantastic. Dad were lucky to see a living legend with such a fine band perform. such wonderful classic Music. I feel this show was special. One of the really great ones I have seen.

Sounds like an awesome show Effie. I am now very pumped to see this band at Mountain Jam 4 in May. I knew Larry Campbell was in Levon's band but had no clue about Jimmy Vivino who I enjoy very much when he sits in with Mule. Lots of great songs as well. Glad you and your wife had such a great night!

ditto on the great crowd--young & old( )--no one in the aisles or rushing the stage--like the ole Fillmore--people had great fun & joy without acting out on others... a great evening.....
