I did not see it.

I have been wanting to comment about Lyle for sometime. A friend and I saw him last fall in Asheville, NC, and we both think it may be the best concert, music-wise, that we have ever seen. And we have seen some concerts in our day. The thing that I appreciate the most is that he showed up with a 22 piece band, and the resume of each member was amazing. Hiring the number of talented musicians that he does lets me know that it's about the music and not just the money. Think of how much more money he could make if he traveled with a 10 piece band. I will see him again and every chance I get. He is an ultimate professional. I don't know how he did in NYC, but I would bet he was great.
I have seen Lyle Lovett a few times here in the Houston area with his "Large Band" and it has always been a treat, our paths have crossed several times since he was living in this area and was an off road motorcycle enthusiast as am I and those meetings were very special to me as he only wanted to talk motorcycles not music. He is exactly as he appears to be, just a joy to share time with, I was just in awe of him.
A Lyle Lovett show is a very special show indeed. I've seen him a few times and it's always very impressive. If you like music, you will like the show. We saw the "Large Band" show last summer. He had the dean of music from a local college in Texas on one of the horns, as well as a local Church Choir from here in Cincinnati as the backup singers. Really outstanding. He's also quite funny and talks a lot between songs. A true joy to see.....
+1 ruebent. My wife and I saw him this past summer on the Large Band tour, also. One of the best shows I have ever been to see, spanning the ear-bleed days of Quicksilver and Jefferson Airplane in the late 60s, to the present. We spent half the evening looking at each other with amazement. Great songwriter with absolutely world class musicians at every spot.
