Jackson Browne – Standing In The Breach – Tour Rocks Indy

Well I’ve been meaning to post about Jackson Browne who we had the pleasure of seeing Saturday October 18 at the Murat (Old National Center) in Indianapolis. This is his “Standing In The Breach” tour which combines his classics and his new album. We paid up for the Ticketmaster “Rock for Reading” VIP opportunity. The reception room was kind of lame as the Heartland Film Festival banquet was going on and they took the cool bars. That said, we did get to talk to Jackson’s VIP host for a bit and he explained that the new album included a number of songs Jackson had not quite finished over the years. My feeling was they really sounded a lot like his older stuff, which I love. The seats, Center in the 11th row at the Murat were unbeatable. It is a great venue really in almost every seat, but that close was simply wonderful.

The band was terrific! Jackson finished the 1st set with Fountain of Sorrow, my 2nd favorite. He finished the encore after the 2nd set with For a Dancer, my favorite song of Jackson’s of all time. What a way to end a remarkable performance!

 

I give the show 5 out of 5 stars! Here is the set list, not in exact order, but I think I got most of the songs…
