I listened on Sirius.  John did 2 songs- R.O.C.K. in the USA and Pink Houses.  It was a full band performance.  I couldn't turn it up too loud as one of my kids was asleep in the car.  I could've sworn I heard a female back up singer- either that or Mike Wanchic is singing a lot higher than he used too Smiley
