He's coming here (Southern California) in a couple months. I wouldn't mind seeing that set, even without the guests.

Is he doing acoustic or electric? Seen him three times on his last two tours and he's never been less than wonderful.

Judging by the length of the set list, it’s probably still going on.

It was fantastic. 3 1/2 hours of bliss.

I didn’t see any cameras, so I don’t think it was filmed.

Turns out the tour that's coming this way is solo, acoustic. Its own pleasures, of course, but probably a more predictable set list.

I caught him twice on his recent acoustic tour of the UK and the set lists were 99% identical both nights. Wonderful shows, but thought he would be a bit more spontaneous as I know he often does request shows
