Circling around the Moon?  How cool is that?  Please post video..... For those of us who can't make a show this leg!  I saw you first?  Cherry Bomb?  Nice to see a change in the lineup.
Ride Back Home and Easter Eve are masterpieces......

Amazing show last night. So happy I found a setlist posted somewhere. Just out of curiosity, does anyone remember when Amazing Grace/the accordion and violin solo spot was played. I'm pretty sure it was before Rain On The Scarecrow but I could be wrong. Also, would someone be able to point out which songs were acoustic? I remember some but not all of them and I know they were scattered. Thanks in advance!

Amazing show last night!  Wish I could make some more shows on this tour.  Loved the stripped down songs the most, especially Easter Eve and Save Some Time for Dreaming.  And seeing Jackie Brown live was pretty amazing in itself.  Of course the band is great, but there's something special about hearing things so raw, especially in such an intimate theater environment

They were AWESOME as usual.
A lot of older songs played differently.
Different then Lowell in February.
Liked hearing Easter Eve (you can't make this stuff up) & Key West.

Nice way to shake up the set list! Circling Around The Moon?!! I Saw You First?! Cherry Bomb!!

I hope John keeps these songs in the set list. It's nice to get a rarity, i.e. Circling Around The Moon and brings back a fan favorite with Cherry Bomb.

No, he plays it with the full band and ends the show with it. See below the performance of the song from Tuesday night's show:

Easter Eve has to be one of my favorites from the past performances on this tour.  The whole feel of the song from the lighting to the backdrop and orchestration are pure magic!
