Saw John Prine last night
 
In Indianapolis- Butler University.
My first time seeing him live. It was a great show!
His playing and voice was strong and he did several songs from his new CD that
Sound like classic John Prine songs. He had a 4 piece back up band and did one set all alone. I gotta say, when he did “Hello in There” , a tear came to my eye.
Tickets were my Christmas present - couldn’t be happier with the gift.

Bet that was a good show in that environ, have been there!
Was he playing his "John Prine" D-28?

Now that's a nice Christmas present!

Glad you enjoyed the show.

Congrats in seeing a Legend!

Like you, I have only seen him once. Not enough! Rolling Stone aptly deems him as the "Mark Twain of American Music". I have to get his new CD, heard it was a good one.

Good thing there's JP in the world ; )

Very cool! Seeing John live is high on my bucket list...

We got to see him live earlier this year. I've been a fan but my wife was just so-so on his music. And then she saw him live. Now she's a HUGE fan!

He played 2 Martin dreads. I was in the 11th row but my eyes are not as strong as they once were and I don’t know Martins enough to distinguish them on sight.
I could tell they were different back / side woods.

Cool! I just bought tickets to see him in Burlington in June. Can't wait.

I saw him a few times years ago...never w/Goodman, though...

We have tickets to the Cincy and Columbus shows...

If you don't have the new album, I highly recommend it...hopefully it's not his last but if it should be, it's a fitting swan song...funny, poignant, sad...typical Prine...

When I bought the tickets, it included a copy of the new CD. It came in the mail as soon as it was released.

Sweet. John Prine is an American treasure.

Most of what Dylan wrote I didn't understand. John Prine on the otherhand, his lyrics make so much sense that it's almost a wonder.....

Old people just grow lonesome, waiting for someone to say, hello in there, hello. ... John Prine

I would add that he has a special quality. His vocals have not suffered much as he grows old. Same with Willie Nelson. Bob Weir however, he should just hire a singer, God bless him.

I think it's amazing how much ''we all'' love John Prine. I've been a fan since I first heard ''Your Flag Decals Won't Get You into Heaven Anymore'' over 40 years ago. But country music fans everywhere never heard of the guy!?

He's playing Dallas in June and I've considered going. Tickets are close to $200. Is he still really sounding good? I saw a,few videos and he seemed to have lost it a bit with age. I'm a big fan and would love to go, but I don't want to be too disappointed.

Bumping this.
