What an amazing show! Mostly stuff from the new album, but a couple of older things as well. A new (to me) arrangement of Gently Weeps as the final (pre-encore) song. And an amazing rendition of Dragon, all electrified. I was fortunate to have amazing seats -- 4th row center -- so I could watch that right hand. Wow.

I think this tour may be coming to an end, but if he makes his way near you, you should try to see him. I waited afterward to meet him, and as everyone says, he was completely gracious. I wore my UU shirt, and he immediately said "Oh, Ukulele Underground. Aldrine is a good friend! Give those guys my love!"

A consummate performer and gentleman. What a fantastic night.

Yep, I saw him in Nashville two nights earlier, and he was awesome! Glad you got to see him too.

I had to miss his few only shows in Australia since I wasn't 18 at the time (this was a few months ago)...Hope he comes to Aus again!

unfortunately this tour didnt have a date in Michigan. At least we have the UOGB coming in a week or so. I definitely want to see Jake!
