John delivered a fantastic opening night performance in Bloomington on Friday night, playing for over two hours (two hours and seven minutes, to be exact) and running through 24 songs - his longest show since the 1992 Whenever We Wanted Tour. He played seven songs from No Better Than This and dug out several rarities from earlier in his career, including Deep Blue Heart, Jackie Brown, The Real Life and a great reworked version of Walk Tall that was the highlight of the show for me. It was different than the Walter Reed version but still fantastic.

He opened with a bluesy version of Authority Song and quickly went into No One Cares About Me and later Death Letter - the only cover tune of the night. Other highlights were the new folk/blues version of Jack and Diane, Easter Eve (John didn't mess up the lyrics once) and Thinking About You from the new album, and a reworked R.O.C.K. In the USA to close the show.

The documentary "Its About You" that played before the concert was excellent, with lots of insights into the new album and great sounding live performances from last summer's tour . All in all a fantastic night of entertainment. Can't wait to do it all again tomorrow.
