My brother and I grabbed 3rd row tickets for his show next month at UIC.

 

It will be about 5 years to the date of the upcoming show since I saw him last.

 

UIC is not the best place for a show --- but hopefully being that close that sound of the venue won't hinder it, too much. 

 

 

Just re-watched that above "Can't Wait" --- hopefully he is still playing that rendition.

If you care about being able to see Bob, third is about as close as you want to get, depending on how high the stage is. If you get too close (first or second row) you won't be able to see him when he's on the piano, which was the case for a lot of people who bought $400 VIP tickets when I saw him a few years ago. Meanwhile I was sitting back in row 4 with one of the best views in the place. All the sound was coming directly from the speakers on each side of the stage so it sounded great.

Start of the tour last night --- a lot of new tunes off his latest, which is cool. New drummer and guitar player.

Just decided to make a family trip to Columbus, Ohio to catch a show this Saturday.

 

Interestingly - I will be seeing another X-Pensive Wino -- Charley Drayton, saw Steve Jordan last week with the Stones. 

 

The Expecting Rain site needs to learn how to spell Drayton's first name.

Yeah I heard about Sexton playing with Costello --- definitely will be missed. Will see how the replacement is.

Never heard of Doug Lancio.  I just saw that he is on some John Hiatt records that I have - didn't recognize the name.

 

Bob Britt was playing with him in 2019 -- I enjoyed his playing when I saw the show in Chicago.

Dylan and Elvis (and Sexton) are in Chicago tonight. Good for Bob for playing 8 of 10 new songs, but that doesn't look like a super enjoyable set if the new album isn't your thing...

The latest recored never jumped out at me, I have only listened to it a handful of times, but I glad he is playing 8 of the tunes --- probably would have skipped this tour if he only played 1 or 2.

 

I am curious to see if he keeps playing all 8.

 

While looking for restaurants  near the theater, I saw that a place called Ringside Cafe is right around the corner -- opened since 1897. Need to see I can spot a guy with a grey hoodie soaking up the boxing motif ambiance while enjoying a burger and a beer....
