MAMA!

This is probably the 15th time or so time she's seen him in concert. If the person you saw was trying to sing along but screwing up the lyrics (badly) it was probably her ;)

Some people are worth overlooking their leftist tendencies for.

Bite my ass, preposition analists.

Great clean music. Nothing sick or nasty in his career. "Palm trees grow, rents are low, and the feeling is..."

Actually I think he is mostly a kennedy dem. He played Coming to america with all the gusto he could. The crowd was going nuts, video of flags waving and eagles flying. If you get a chance to see his show you should.

I was almost all pre 81. Extraordinary because I saw him in 82 or 83 and he played about 50% new and old. I never got to hear alot of his old stuff till last night. I will try to remember..

Cherry cherry
red wine
grass wont pay no mind
I am I said
forever in blue jeans
beautiful noise
shilo
brooklyn roads
crunchy granola
crackln rosie
desiree
glory road
holly holy
kentucky woman
Johnathan livingston seagul
play me
sky bird
sooliamon
thank the lord for the night time
you dont bring me flowers

And a personally amazing song that I have heard only once before last night. When I was a kid I watched the show the monkees and they once played a song that I said man that sounds like neil diamond wrote it. It had the line " look out here comes tomorrow...." I watched the credits and he did write it. Well Neil played it last night. I was in shock. I loved it just as much then as when I heard it 28 years ago.

I am sure I missed some songs but it was great to hear him sing his old stuff with as much power as he did at "love at the greek"

I will tell you a neat story. We were there and about 20 minutes into the concert about 5 freshman college students came up the stairs and stood in the landing of the staples center. I watched then. They must have gotten free tickets and had nothing else to do so they were talking loud and not going to their seats. ( trying to see who this guy was) Well I watched as these guys saw the staples center packed to the ceiling with people and the audience dancing and jumping up and down...... I watched as each stopped talking and their heads started bobing and there was that look on thier faces like.... hey there is something to this guys... then they all went to their seats and were totally into the show. All of them were about 19. THAT was cool.

I looked up Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow), and it looks like Neil never recorded it himself. At least, only the Monkees are listed. I wouldn't mind hearing his version. From the sound clip, I agree that it is easy to hear that Neil Diamond wrote it. Thanks for the setlist. It sounds like it was a good show.
