Wow! This is looking like what I used to see on here back in the 1990's when I never had a chance to see him live. I'm at the last two nights' 6 p.m. shows so I bet since it's the last ones they'll be even better. This is unreal everything I'm hearing and vids posted here and there, it's like he's back with a vengeance man. I'm surprised I still haven't seen "Fever" in there b/c that used to be a big shtick he had with Jimmy Mattingly, at least on the Central Park and Ireland concerts. Maybe he's too old to do that one anymore, haha, dunno, but I loved the time I saw him pouring those water bottles on Jimmy from behind after everything came in with the fiddle. Honestly sinc ehe hasn't done it yet I'm gonna' make a sign for "What She's Doing Now." Would have liked to heard "When You Come Back to Me" too but since he's done it twice already I really doubt he will do it again. But I love it, he's back to improvising and changing the sets a little bit. That means he is INTO it and I just know in my gut that if he is into it like all the old concerts I've seen video of or read about . . . it will be awesome beyond belief.
So glad he is doing "Much Too Young" - I first heard that on the Central Park show, and he was almost apologetic about playing it and said it was just a sentimental favorite and I was like, wow, that's actually really awesome for a first single. And it sounds way better when it's him starting it out acoustically like that, than on the radio version/CD version I heard later on.
And "Turn the Page" . . . I've never heard Garth's version (would love to) but always loved Seger's and actually Metallica covered it a few years ago and I thought they really nailed it. GB seems to improve most songs he covers so man that must have been great, had actually forgotten but he used to do that pretty often when he was touring, I would read about it on here. It's funny, I was actually backwards, a lot of people say they never listened to country before Garth, but I listened to country for a while and heard his songs and didn't know who he was, and he actually was the reason I started listening to rock music and just a variety of stuff because he seemed to integrate so many influences. I loved the look in his eyes on the concert where he did "You May Be Right" by Billy Joel. He really did look like a "lunatic", and I loved that about him. Oh also Alabama Clay, awesome that he did that . . . I'm from Alabama and obviously he would have sung that if he came here (he did come here but I didn't know his music at all then, just kept hearing the name on the news now and again). There is actually a really old clip of him doing this song when his first album was out, and it was in Indiana for some farmer's thing. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClkUhmMdTnk) I thought it was pretty cool, he was pretty energetic even then before he was known for being theatrical and stuff. Oh well I'll quit I'm just too excited about this stuff, it's kinda' unbelievable.
