Show Review-Jackson Browne at Ravinia
In case you're wondering,The Jackson Browne Show at Ravinia last night was pretty much a snoozefest. I know you must be shocked to hear this. Though the visibly aging troubadour was in fine voice with a solid band and a pair of terrific backing vocalists, the show lagged, with over half of the setlist for the 2.5 hr show comprised of none too subtle political protest songs with truly horrific 7th grade level lyrics. We did get a good dose of classics including Already Gone, Late For the Sky, The Pretender, Running on Empty and of course The Load-Out at the very end. He jipped us out of Somebody's Baby.
