THANK YOU LISA FOR INTRODUCING ME TO JACKSON BROWNE
It was September of 1974...I was a senior in high school. My first year at a new school living in a new state. Lisa and Jeannie befriended me...2 of the best influences I ever met. The first time I heard Jackson Browne was on a Saturday night, after a great SNL episode, slightly buzzed from one of Lisa's awkwardly, but superbly rolled joints, and man was I hooked. Fast forward 44 years...my awesome son gets us tickets to see Jackson at the Oakdale Theater in Wallilngford, CT for my 61st birthday. The magic that captivated me the first time I heard his voice gave life to the depth of his words all over again. Thank you Jackson Browne for being present in my life...the good times and the hard times. You still rock forever in my heart. And a big shout-out to my son as well, who enjoyed the show "almost" as much as his mom.

WHAT CAN YOU SAY? IT'S JACKSON BROWNE.
Sublime. Inspiring. it was so moving to see one of my greatest heroes--not only because of his music and poetry, but who he is as a human being. I cried many times. The world is a better place for having Jackson Browne in it. And his band was A-MAZING. The acoustics were perfect. Usually sound at concerts is distorted and so loud, it just becomes noise. This was a wonderfully intimate setting and you could hear every wise word.

5 STARS FOR JACKSON, 0 FOR WAIKIKI SHELL MANAGEMENT
After an absolutely amazing performance by Jackson Browne and his band, the powers that be "pulled the plug" and shut down the music right in the middle of his encore . A huge disappointment for all the fans, and an embarrassment to Jackson Browne and his band. The Waikiki Shell management owes everyone a huge apology. What a rude way to treat a music legend!

GOT THE LOAD OUT BUT COULDN’T STAY...
So Jackson comes out for his encore... he's sings the Load Out... which segues into Stay... : “Jackson Brown closing with the ultimate encore song, “The Load- Out/Stay” with lyrics like, “... people stay just a little bit longer, we wanna play just a little bit longer..” but in mid-song at 10 pm, the City turns off the PA system!” Honolulu has a noise ordinance. All outdoor concerts have to end at 10pm This was due to a 1981 BLUE OYSTER CULT CONCERT @ Andrews Amphitheater on the UH campus. I lived nearby when that happened. The wealthy home owners lobbied for the noise ordnance. & tonight was the first time I've seen it enforced. & on a closing # about 'Staying... A Little Bit Longer. Hilarious His 3 hour show was incredible. New, classics, and so In tuned to the audience. We’ve never seen him so relaxed. & his voice was in perfect tone. His guitar runner slagged... but that added just the right comedic edge to the perfectly delivered show. & talk about Tight(?) the band was great!

JACKSON BROWNE, GOD’S FINEST GIFT TO MUSIC
Went to the Beacon Theatre on Sunday - travelled with my wife from Ireland to be there, as we do as often as we can to see this great artist. Loved the show, would obviously have loved a full show by Jackson and his band but the 3 hours plus shared with Lucius was a gem. Thanks to all 16 musicians/singers for a really uplifting night - roll on Jackson's next tour (in Ireland again, Jackson???!!!). If you’re a devotee, you’ll know what I mean - if not, treat yourself to one of life’s better musical experiences

BEACON THEATRE MAGIC
Three hours of amazing music! Lucius started things off and they were little BOSSES. My first time hearing them and I loved them! Jackson Browne was kind, funny and amazing. His interaction with other artists is magic🙌
