Mary/Diana - I think one of the guys was called John and yes they did go to Red Rocks! Still driving me nuts trying to remember the other guys name!
Mary, I am constantly watching for news of LC's tour but due to personal circumstances am not sure if I will be able to get anywhere but who knows?? ;-)
Hope everyone is good.

In reviewing my camera memory cards, I discovered a treasure trove of five videos of the Las Vegas concert. One video in particular is a special delight. I don’t know if anyone else has a video in their private stash, but this seems to be the never before seen video capture of an exciting moment, that was not repeated the following night in San Jose.

ANTHEM
After completing "Anthem" at 5:35, LC segues into a set of particularly gracious introductions of his musicians that climax with a special salute at 9:14 to the newly coiffed musical director, "Roscoe, THE KID IS BACK, Beck.

I was so fascinated with Roscoe's new handsome haircut that I kept him in the frame of all my Las Vegas videos as much as possible.

BIRD ON THE WIRE
Perhaps another never seen gem, the patter at the beginning. There is a wonderful exchange between LC and the audience.

LC: We meet in some unlikely places
Aud: We love you Leonard
LC: I’m very fond of you also
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGpgt12xk68

THE FUTURE
And maybe a third jewel. I cannot find another video of "The Future" from Las Vegas on Youtube.
At 4.15, nice white man dancing by LC and an animated Roscoe followed by the Webb Sisters’ finely tuned choreography removing their jackets, hanging them neatly on the mike stand and their perfectly executed cartwheels.

Hi Arlene,

What treasures these are!! What a delight to have memories of Vegas brought back 6 months later, and video seen from a slightly different view! Leonard is in top form, and I love your focus on Roscoe with that sexy haircut! In "Future" my view must have been blocked because I did an "omg" when I saw Roscoe do the "white man dancing" bit in your video! :D

Very very nice! Thanks so much for finding these!!

I just pasted another wonderful memento from the November 12 concert on my LC Scrapbook.

It is an image of my venue specific poster and how I came to buy it.
