Weirdest show I’ve ever attended. Dude ran down the center isle and ninja kicked right in front of McMurtry and then danced with everyone, literally kicking off “Choctaw Bingo.” Female out front asked husband to hold her drink whilst she showed a gentleman her boobs (to which of course he obliged).. loved hanging with Cornbread and they guys after the show.

First time seeing James live... can’t wait for another stop anywhere close to Columbus. Awesome show and got to meet him and the band after!
Exactly what I expected. Great! Thought there would be more people. His talents are under appreciated.
Great collection of songs and stories about them from his lengthy discography and his latest album Complicated Game. Great guitar work as usual spinning melodies and holding the crowds attention playing solo acoustic. Great rendition of his classic Choctaw Bingo with a great new verse about his cousin with a “pill poppin’ problem” but she’s better now. Well sung story from 2 new songs “State of the Union” and what I think is a new ballad from a forthcoming album perhaps. It’s one I didn’t recognize but well delivered.

Consummate showman in his own aw shucks way. Exquisite wielding of the 12 string. Loved every minute.

James McMurtry is one of the best songwriters out there today. Always puts on a killer show. He ended this night with a scorching version of Too Long in the Wasteland. Can't wait until he is back in town!
