We park on the street at the bottom of the hill; traffic to leave after the concert takes FOREVER so parking farther away gets you out faster

Lyle was great as well as his Large Band. Was a perfect night out.

It's always nice to go to the Greek. We enjoyed Madeleine Peyroux -- who was new to us. Loved Lyle Lovett! He is so funny, entertaining, talented, fun to watch/hear!

This was my first - back at the Greek in twenty five years, first time to see Lyle Lovett and Peyroux live. Both were great! I will have to come back to the Greek Theatre more often. It is a better venue than HOllywood Bowl. Getting there was easy...continued

Description

No one writes songs like Lyle Lovett. Finely wrought and full of wit, wisdom and Texas-sized storytelling, the veteran singer/songwriter’s catalog is rife with characters and concepts that loom large on the American landscape.

Lyle Lovett is a four time Grammy winner and has led a remarkable career which includes 13 albums and over four million records sold. His music uniquely intersects an array of genres from country and folk to bigband swing and traditional pop as evidenced by such revered albums as Lyle Lovett, Pontiac, Lyle Lovett and His Large Band, _Joshua Judges Ruth _and The Road To Ensenada. It’s Not Big It’s Large, Lovett’s latest collection, has been one of the most acclaimed efforts of his career. The album contains big, contemporary themes, but it is Lovett’s gift to make the deep thoughts slide down like honey. _USA Today _heralded his “Texas-sized cowboy jazz,” as the _Wall Street Journal _declared Lovett has “been widening the reach of country music for over 20 years,” while praising the “dozen new tracks that touch on country and folk as well as blues jazz and gospel.” The memorable songs include “I Will Rise Up/Ain’t No Cane,” the poignant “South Texas Girl,” the infectious, upbeat “Up in Indiana.” and the rueful ballad “Don’t Cry a Tear.”

Madeleine Peyroux has gone from performing on the streets of Paris to headlining her own shows. Along the way, she has received critical

acclaim for her kittenish voice and behind-the-beat phrasing that both

echoes and reinterprets jazz and blues greats Billie Holiday, Bessie

Smith and Ma Rainey.
