Todd & Joe in Cincinnati

Review by editorbob (Switch to

I don't have a review ready, except to say that the show was outstanding from first note to last. Joe was wonderful, Todd was transcendent, Ethel was simply amazing, and the crowd sang along to practically everything. When we all shouted out "Where?" in the refrain of his closer, "Is She Really Going Out With Him?" he was so startled he lost his composure and began laughing, and then lost his place in the song. It was great fun. Todd was in fine voice, witty between songs as always. The closer, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," tore the roof off the Taft Theatre, had the crowd standing and cheering before the final violin whirlwind faded. Never heard anything like it. I hope to heck they recorded this tour somewhere along the line -- it would make a killer live CD. Three hours of absolute fanboy/girl bliss!

I don't know Ethel's work well enough to have their playlist from the show, but here's the set list for everything else:

Home Town
Steppin' Out
Awkward Age
Take It Like a Man
It's Different for Girls
Obvious Song
Love at First Light
Girl (John Lennon cover)
Real Men
Citizen Sane
Is She Really Going Out With Him?
