MP3 samples included. It was an evening of high energy, old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll as Chris Isaak and his band had fans on their feet multiple times during the evening. As he has been known to do, Chris walked through the audience toward the beginning of the show singing Love Me Tender. He wore a red suit at the beginning of the show, later changing to a suit of small mirrors as seen on a disco ball. Chris and his band performed an extremely interactive show with the audience, at one point asking bootleggers not to miss taping an unreleased song he was about to play, “Let Her Down”. British R&B artist James Hunter and his band opened; his show has been torrented and highly recommended.
