This was a great opportunity to see a living legend. I know Levon has been through some hell, but he was so happy it was infectious. I was really impressed with the band. It was a great horn section. It was a nice mix of classics and new. We also snagged some free tix, and they were pretty good seats! I did think it was wierd there was no merchandise. I was looking to buy the new CD by the end of the show.
