Kentuckygirl Posted July 20, 2008 Share Posted July 20, 2008 Hopefully someone will post a set list with pics, I was on Robert's side of the stage in the first side section, two rows up. I took a couple of shots with my Blackberry but I don't know how to zoom so they didn't turn out well. I had a wonderful view of backstage area, as well as "Robert's people" sitting on the back side of the stage. At the end of the concert our section noticed that Robert's entourage (of three) all had coats and rain gear on, and it was over 90 degrees with no rain, but horrible humidity last night. There was no explaination for coats other than they were going directly to airport and back to England after the show. Robert ended the show by commenting that they were going to "take a rest" but "we will be back". Compared to night one in Louisville, the difference was amazing in that Alison appeared more loose and relaxed and genuinely was enjoying herself on stage. She joked with the crowd about being home finally and "having to spend a thousand dollars at Whole Foods". Robert was extremely loose, making off-color remarks such as "we don't always finish together every night" then ducking Alison's glare. They were extremely playful on stage. The opening act, Sharon Little, told of Robert visiting her dressing room (there was a lot of whooping in the crowd on that one) and wishing her well and giving her a "big hug". Usually at Sommet Center shows celebrities make cameos, and join for sing-alongs. A recent Bon Jovi concert drew several country stars onto the stage, and the people I was sitting around all wondered if that would happen last night, but it did not. The VIP boxes were all full. The Tennessean will report later if any local celebrities were in the audience. This was my first visit to the Sommet Center as I am a newbie to the Nashville area and I was extremely impressed with the venue. The location is excellent, there is nothing better than stepping out of a concert and being able to cross the street directly to Tootsie's. Intersting comments from the Tennessean interview with Beverly Keel: Alison herself seems very uncertain on how long this collaboration will last. She commented that "Robert can pick up a CD in Seattle and go off in an entirely different direction". Robert was also asked point-blank if he is buying a house in Nashville, and the answer was a definite "no". He doesn't own houses anywhere except England. It is also clear that Alison is tired of the "Yoko" comparisons, stated that she isn't keeping Robert from doing anything. You get the feeling that she is along on HIS ride.
