Susan Tedeschi opened up with some powerful Janis Joplin like raspy vocals that entailed about 45 minutes for her opening set. Chris was well.... at his Elvis best especially when he waded out into the audience to giving his rendition of Love me Tender to the swooning female fans in the audience. A true professional and self effacing performer for those who get it.

A very likable entertainer, with vocals that are reminiscent of Elvis. He works well with the crowd, and has a unique sound quality that makes him quite distinctive from others. Did not enjoy Susan Tedeschi, she was over amplified!
Quotes & Highlights
Chris Isaak taught himself how to play guitar and began writing songs as a teenager. He found early inspiration in country musicians, such as Hank Williams, who his father liked to listen to on the radio. His 1989 album, Heart Shaped World, featuring the smash single, “Wicked Game” became a hit on the Billboard charts and earned Isaak widespread fame. Now an accomplished musician, actor and television personality, Isaak maintains a vigorous touring schedule, stars in critically acclaimed films and is the host of his own weekly talk show, “The Chris Isaak Hour” on the Biography Channel.
His latest release Mr. Lucky is his first non-holiday studio album since 2002. Filled with his distinctive, sweetly moody, slyly sexy retro-pop, Isaak's fans will consider themselves fortunate that new music from their Mr. Lucky has finally arrived. The Hollywood Reporter said of the album, “It seems impossible that it's been seven years since Chris Isaak's last set of all-new songs. But Mr. Lucky makes up for lost time with 14 gems that showcase his sharp vocal stylings, particular brand of countrified pop music and (given his sex appeal) an equally impossible-to-believe preponderance of romantic heartbreak.”
