My friend Janet must be feeling like Lady Luck. Hurry-someone take her with you to Vegas! She somehow manged to finagle free tickets to another concert this week. Last night was Toby Keith. I like Toby. Actually, I like the old Toby. Don't tell him that, for that was the Toby that he told his record label he could go and Sc*&W because he didn't feel as though he had creative liberties. He was "sticking it to the man". I can respect that but I think that his "creative liberties" aren't as good lyrically as the prior. The last 4 Cd's have had some-er, a little on that I like, but it is his old stuff that I fell in love with. For example:"Shoulda Been a Cowboy", "When Country Comes to Town", "You Shouldn't Kiss me like This", "A Little Less Talk", "Wish I Didn't Know....", Thank goodness I heard almost all of these last night. Although the newer stuff , of course, was mixed in.
I have seen Toby preform 4 or 5 times. It's a good show, but not much has changed with his stage performance. It is basically the same show. That isn't to be said though that it isn't a party. There was a rowdy crowd there last night. The entire Verizon Wireless Music Center was packed to almost capacity. It was Carrie Underwood's one drunk times a few thousand. It never bothers me, as long as they behave. I was just happy the concert was at the Verizon. It is closer to my house, an outdoor amphitheater and acoustics are also a few thousand times better than the BJCC. We left just before his last song and the following encores that came after. A good time was had by all!
