Great performance. Love the large band. Jazz, blues, country, gospel, folk, bluegrass, they covered it all. The Greek has excellent acoustics, much better than the Bowl.

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

Always a treat to see Lyle Lovett.
This is the first time I've seen him with his large band.
It was great that each of the participants in his group got to showcase their individual talents.

lyle lovett is a wonderful performer, and a generous headliner, always giving everyone on his stage the opportunity to shine on their own. i was happy with my seat (midway up B section, on the aisle). all in all, another great goldstar evening....

This concert was shockingly great! You don't need to know his music. He entertains you from start to finish!

Madeleine Payroux was incredible. Although she opened to virtually an empty orchestra section, by her midway point, the place was packed. She was very appreciative of the crowd and she received a standing ovation.

Lovett was interesting for...continued

To quote Penthouse Forum; I never thought it would happen to me.

Our Goldstar tickets were in the 'adjusted' last row center (the actual rear ten or so rows were blocked off by some green camouflage so as to look less vacant). During the...continued

XLNT performance!! Saw him on New Year's Eve a couple years ago at Walt Disney Concert Hall and he was great, but he was even better on 8/7/09 at the Greek. The show lasted approx. 2 hours, and it remained very entertaining throughout. Lyle...continued

We love Lyle Lovett and this is the fourth time we have caught his show. He, his super talented band (missed the horns), and his excellent singers were all terrific, as usual. Was waiting for Fiona but she didn't make it this time. His show...continued

Lyle Lovett is a fantastic performer. His Large Band was perfectly showcased at the Greek and sounded incredible. Even though we were at the back of the B section, you could see pretty well and the sound was amazing. But for the guys behind us...continued

My husband and I had such an excellent time at the Greek for this show. We heard Lyle Lovett here many, many years ago with Ricki Lee Jones. He is incredible with his rich, soulful lyrics and delivery, and his Large Band was also amazing.
