He was GREAT, and had a terrific big band...don't miss him next time he is in town.
The Ellington arrangements were pure Joe Jackson. He played his heart out, including old favorites of his own (plus some new tunes) for 2 hours, no intermission.

Intimate setting which was perfect for this show! Jackson was quite entertaining, the music was fabulous as he did some old favorites and his own renditions of many Duke Ellington favorites as well. We were very glad we went!

Thanks, Goldstar, for the $10.50 Joe Jackson tickets at the Masonic Center. He and his band were absolutely incredible! They were tight, and so gracious and generous with the audience--a very memorable concert.

great blast of 70s/80s nostalgia with some nice contemporary touched thrown in.

One of the most underrated performers of our time. And what an incredibly versatile band! Can't wait to see this or any of his shows again soon!

Unlike Madonna, on Friday night Joe didn't need 43 trailers worth of equipment, props, lights, dancers, etc. to put on a brilliant show; just an arsenal of great songs and 7 superb musicians (not including Joe himself).
