Sub-Titled: Did I write his set list?
Sweet D did Todd with me again. When I say “again” it means it’s her third or fourth time. I love him. She knows it makes me happy. The hot mustard at Coles makes her happy. Thus. Pre-show visit.
I was pretty excited about seeing Todd again… I don’t exactly know why. I took a picture of the Marquee so you all could be as excited as me.
As with Trower it was a very simple set up with the addition of videos.
I took quite a few of these “long distance, couldn’t afford better seats” photos, so I won’t bore you with all of them… but my three takeaways are…
- I was digging it so much I didn’t say anything to the guy behind me who talked during the entire show. He was ‘splainin’ Todd to his son. Every nuance of every song. I was happy he was doing it. D, not so much.
- Speaking of D, she turned to me and said, “You don’t have to tell me the name of every song after the first note.” Yeah, I was that guy. I got a little too excited.
- The setlist was like he was plugged into almost every song I’ve become fixated on over the years. The only two songs he missed that I put on ‘endless repeat’ were “Wailing Wall” and “Hawking.” Otherwise… UFB! I heard “Fair Warning” live and almost cried.
Love owns us all,
time owns us all,
life owns us all
But the world doesn’t own me…
