So it feels right to have at the top of the set.
I get the keyboard filler parts at this show, but it felt unnecessary against
the spare solo guitar.
Yes on Spare Me a Little!
I don't necessarily disagree but, the question is, given that this is NOT a LB solo show, but a series of shows to showcase the new album (which it does very well), to show off the songwriting and performing talents of Chris and Lindsey, to show of some bits of their catalog of collaborations, to show off maybe Lindsey's playing and arranging skills, and to remind people of their hits/scratch the itch of those who know and expect certain hits from each of them. SUD fills none of these niches except maybe showing off Lindsey's live playing skill and performance (i.e. managing an audience) skills. The trouble is it has absolutely ZERO connection to his work with Christine, their collaborations, etc......all of which is the main foundation of the whole tour. It's perfect for a solo Lindsey show which is full of people who want deep cuts from him.

I agree with the previous poster that the first 3 songs being Lindsey-focused are disproportionate and rather disrespectful to Christine's "body of work". Granted he may feel like he's more of a proven headliner (which is true) but it's a tedious choice for the opening of a set defined by BuckVie collabs past and present.

One of the amazing things I loved so much about the show was how the crowd was giving huge applause and some people standing for the new music!!



That really had the two of them all juiced up. I'm still buzzing from how good that show was.

How fabulous! Love how happy they seem...delighted to see CM so radiant and clearly enjoying herself. And, I love her wavy hair...to me she's always been the blend of beautiful & cool, even more so lately. Happiness suits her!

Your enthusiasm is contagious-thanks for the recaps!

In Phoenix, I was first row and singing all the new songs. Lindsey was looking at me like: "You already know the lyrics?!" So I kept singing and he seems really happy with us.

Christine is more shy, but she was equally surprised and I think that's why she stop near us before leaving the stage.

​They are

I noticed in London on the OWTS tour. When I got near to the stage, the thing that struck me most was the brightness in Christine and Stevie's eyes - shining bright like sparkling diamonds..... Very beautiful...
