A follow up to my Richard Thompson post.
It was hard to believe that the Queen Elizabeth Theatre was only half full for this concert. The band was on fire. I think it’s my 7th time seeing him in Toronto - solo, duo, trio, full 6 piece band - and he just gets better and better.
If you're into virtuoso guitar playing, you need to see RT in concert. No one plays like Richard.
Here’s a full concert from a few months ago, with generally the same set list as we saw.
Just listen to his solos in any of the songs from this set — like the last half of “Can’t Win”.
Take Care the Road You Choose at 11:40
Can’t Win at 22:25
1952 Vincent Black Lightning at 41:55
