Lyle Lovett and His Large Band

It's not big. It's large. I guess that this is the name of his new CD. Anyway, the concert was good. I am not a historical fan, but enjoyed his performance. The "large band" featured local artists, so that is always a lot of fun. The show started on time, with an intro act. Shaun someone. Then Lyle started at 8:30 and played for 2.5 hours. He has a charming and entertaining stage delivery.

We had good seats at the Dodge Theatre. Section 2, Row 15, seats 1 and 2. Ate at Thai Elephant a few blocks from the theatre.

James Taylor

James Taylor, live, finally, after all those hours I spent with him as
a teenage girl.

Good concert. He was very personable and interacted with the audience. He sang new songs, and some of the old favorites. He sang some that were done by Carol King, although maybe they were his and she did them. Whatever...they are good songs and brought back a lot of memories.

Ate at Majerle's before the show. It is about a five block walk from the theatre.
