Which would have been a mistake, cos it was a bloody amazing gig. Just superb. He played for just under two hours, just him and a keyboard player.
Lofgren played a harp for the first number, which didn't really help my expectations, but then he strapped on his guitar and the show really took off.
I didn't know any of the songs in the first half. He changed his guitar for almost every song - the guitar roady was on stage almost as much as Lofgren - and I think he had at least for guitars. Mostly he played acoustics, though put through a large variety of pedals. He looped tracks so he could do rhythm and solo.
Then he played a brilliant version of Keith Don't Go. He played keyboards on a lovely Goin' Back. He did some tap dancing (and was very good - his keyboard player danced too).
They played I Came To Dance, Mud In Your Eye, Like Rain, and several things from Grin which sounded like familiar.
They encored with Rocking In The Free World, with the whole crowd singing along. He said he'd only played it with Neil Young before, rather than in his own shows. I can't speak for anyone else, but I had a lump in my throat as I tried to sing.
Just a great gig.
