Oh, so glad you got to see him! I never have, and he's one of my all-time favorites.

I love that parting commentary.

I'm going to take a wild stab at supposing you had a great time. Tell me about it this evening, eh?

I have the jealous, but I look forward to hearing everyone's experience!

I was so surprised how he ended the concert - I was waiting for him to play 'Closing Time'. I felt the way he did end it was sort've like saying 'Thanks and Good-bye...forever.' I'm guessing this will probably be his last tour. I'm so glad I saw him.

Re: Surprised
Yeah. The whole concert was the blessing, those amazing ending words were very much just wrapping it in a ribbon and saying, "Here."

What an experience. My words will never do it justice.
