The evening built to a crescendo. The very first act, someone whose name I did not get, was borderline pathetic. Then Jenny Lewis, someone I never heard of but talented and others must have known of her because they were singing along and...continued

Levon Helm is one of the greatest musicians ever, and he's assembled a fabulous band. They played a great mix of songs made famous by The Band, traditional folk tunes, and others. Special guest Steve Earle did a couple of his own wonderful songs...continued

Could not have been better. There was not a dull moment from the opening single act (great, but I could not hear his name in the noise), through Jenny Lewis, Levon Helm and Steve Earle. One of the best music shows I have ever seen. Felt like I was...continued

Great show. Jenny Lewis and her band impressed, and ol' Levon's still got it. His band was great, too.

Fantastic concert! Levon was stellar and his band was slammin'! Jenny Lewis was a great surprise and Jim Keltner and Steve Earle coming out lots of fun, too.

Great venue, perfect seats. Artists were enthusiastic and talented. Only way it could have been better would have been to move a little faster between acts- lot's of time spent looking at blank stage on a work-night.

Levon's vocals and drumming with the Band on some of the most important songs of the last 50 years assure his place in the pantheon of rock legends. Seeing him on any stage playing with any combo is a real treat.

The band was tight and punchy...continued

Concert was like seeing the Band, and Jenny Lewis, while I never heard of her, kicked a** :-)

Levon didn't sing much, as he was still recovering from having some polyps removed. Still, a great show.

Levon's voice is actually recovering from radiation treatments (25 total), it's a miracle he survived the cancer. Having said that, the show was very much a good time. Opening with Ophelia was a nice touch. He is still one of the worlds best...continued

This event was fantastic. The Greek is my new favorite venue. Every seat in the house would have been fine and the easy of moving around in it was great.

The show was great. Levon's band did an awesome job and was really fun to watch. ...continued

I thought the show was excellent. I may not have the opportunity to see him again. Thank you Goldstar for making it possible for me to attend.

Jenny Lewis is a force of nature. The lyrics, the music and her voice combine to make her one of the most interesting and compelling artists I've seen live in a long time. Her standing ovation was well deserved. I'll go see her anywhere anytime...continued

The first two acts...not so much. The first singer (can't remember his name, he was that memorable) really had a way with words -- singing the same ones over and over. Jenny Lewis? Well she seems like a Patti Smith wannabee.

However Levon...continued

What a wonderful show! Though Levon didn't sing much, the rest of the band was GREAT! And Steve Earle was just icing on the cake. Love Goldstar for making this happen for me and two friends from out of state. Thank you so much!.....Kathleen
