Thursday night's concert was the third I've attended recently. Saw them in Phoenix with my wife, saw them in Oakland with my son on his 21st birthday, and was fortunate enough to have my wife, son, and 18 year old daughter along on Thursday. Each presentation is so carefully polished yet quite individualized as well. The band members' solos are distinctly different each evening, and I've come to appreciate how much each of them adds to the evening. I've also come to appreciate the respect and affection that Leonard shows each band member. We were fortunate enough to visit briefly with Dino before the show. He was so personable, and he referred to what he was doing as the tour of a lifetime. How could he feel otherwise? I took a few photos focussing more on the band members this time; here are three. I have more but don't want to presume to post very many...
Thank you Leonard. We look forward to seeing you at Radio City Music Hall in May!

We had to drive up from Salem Thursday afternoon and return after the concert. Had to work the next day, but it was so worth it! Thank Shaunna for your kind words...

Thank you, Zenon. I'm so pleased to hear that it's become a family affair for you. Dino is SOOOooooooooo right ~ the tour of a lifetime. Just imagine the many ways; we can't even begin to.

I love the lighting in your top one of Leonard... and the one of Javier. Really nice photos and I thank you so much for sharing them.

Presume to post more - there is no such thing as too many! Thank you and thank you also for your great review!

Best regards,

Spectrum Culture has a thoughtful, in-depth review of the Man's recent stop in Seattle. Worth reading.

The last line:

Sitting in the vast crowd with my hands stinging with applause, I could only watch wonderingly as someone who has given so much to the world expressed so much gratitude back to us. :)

Yes. Very nice review - it is worth reading. Thanks
