mel's first reaction even before the first strum of his guitar. "i like his shoes." i would have to agree. findlay barreled into his single "love will find you" to start off the set. he inquired if anyone had seen his performance on letterman last night. i did. he said it wasn't so hot, but i thought it was fine. he then followed it up with "holding back the night" and "i still want you". next up was my fav, "nobody cared", which he said was based on his sister getting bullied when she was little.
i was able to capture this next tune, "everybody needs love". sorry ran out of memory to get the whole thing.
annnnd here is the set list in it's entirety.
love will find you
holding back the night
i still want you
everybody needs love
teardrops lost in the rain
sweet dreams (eurythmics cover)
i will (on request and not on the original setlist)
i had a dream
he ran out with an impromptu encore, coming to the edge of the stage with acoustic guitar in hand. i couldn't make out the tune.
findlay encompassed all the roy orbison swagger for me. mel and jac said he reminded them of richard hawley. regardless of who findlay reminds us of, we all were in agreement that it was he was a delight.
