Well, I travelled out to Kansas City for the first time for what I was hoping would be a special Beck show, and it certainly was.

Willie Nelson opened the night around 8pm with his family band and performed classic song after song - still a great entertainer to this day, the crowd certainly loved it.

 

Then the stage reset for Beck - and it was a pretty familiar band that ended up taking to the stage; JMJ, Roger Manning Jr, Joey Waronker and Jason Falkner.

 

The setlist for the night was pretty similar to shows on the previous tour - although Beck noted this was their first performance for over 8 months.

 

The main highlights included a special Willie Nelson tribute during 'Jackass' - Beck explained to the crowd the story behind Willie appearing the the Jackass video, and they then performed the song while the video played on the large screen behind the stage.

 

Then Beck invited Willie join him on stage for a song ... there was a short pause while they waited ... and seemed like there might have been some miscommunication, so Beck started a short version of 'Lonesome Whistle' (Hank Williams); part way through Willie appeared and walked out on stage. Then together they performed 'Waiting for a Train' (Jimmie Rodgers).

 

Beck also told a story about coming to Kansas City as a child to visit his Grandmother.

 

Overall - amazing, once-only performance; Beck really had great energy and it was a good crowd.

I'm glad you had a great time, the show really sounds special :)

No Smokey and Gus then, did having a smaller band make a big difference?
