Rumour I hear is the Ryman on 3/25.
Top ticket price in Louisville (at the Palace) is $275 including fees. First show sold out and a second one has been added. Too much for me.
Here's my spin on the show:
Found this posting about last night:
What an absolutely awful show. It's a special kind of heartbreak after looking forward to it for a while. Evan was a mess and played half songs at such a rapid pace that they lacked any substance. The show lasted 35 minutes. He couldn't have left soon enough. I walked in ready to see my favorite musician and left with zero respect for a guy that can't even get his shit together for an hour. I'm a teacher and have to be on my a+ game for 5 one hour periods every day. And he can't even muster the energy to play a single hour. Fuck him and his bullshit. He's a pathetic loser that deserves the b list status he's at. What a wasted talent.
Not sure what to expect tonight. A friend just told me that last night at the Chicago City Winery he played only a 35-minute set. He said that Evan was in such a hurry to leave that he performed the last song with his coat on.
A few days prior in Cleveland he did a 28-song set. Wonder what was up.
While I like both Bill Withers and Joan Jett, did they really have Hall of Fame careers? Withers is seemingly getting in based on one great song, and maybe the same could be said for Joan. I know I am prejudiced since I hate Green Day, but picking them in their first year of eligibility is a shocker. To steal what I have been reading on many blogs, their only salvation would be if Billie Joe would give his trophy to Paul Westerberg in front of the TV audience.
This had to be a tough one for CW to handle. A guy who just sold out three Ryman shows (7500 people) is now selling 600 tix for 2 shows.
