I enjoyed the show. It was my first Elvis show since the North pre-tour shows at the Town Hall. I thought Elvis did some interesting guitar work, a lot more soloing than usual which was cool. I guess he has been fine tuning his guitar chops on this tour and it showed. His stage patter was limited, but it was new to me, which is always a nice thing (after 10 shows or so). It was professional show and the crowd seemed to eat it up, after all, he is the beloved entertainer. My only complaint, and I will say it again, too damn expensive. Sorry Elvis, but you can’t rip off the faithful and expect them to keep coming back for more, bring the ticket price down.
