Jackson Browne's intimate Meijer Gardens show makes a fan feel he's playing just for them E-mail

Jackson Browne 2014The opener, "I'll Do Anything" at the Jackson Browne show last night gave the audience the feeling they were in Browne's livingroom and not in a sold out amphitheater at Frederik Meijer Gardens.

While bouncing between a baby grand and multiple guitars Browne performed solo all the classics fans love, including songs from his album to be released in Fall of 2014 and the Warren Zevon cover, "Don't Let Us Get Sick" that had everyone swaying. The intimate show switched gears toward the end when fans erupted in a sing along during "Take it Easy" and "Running on Empty." With over 20 different guitars on stage and no set list, Browne said it well when he said "inside each of these guitars is a song."

Well played, Jackson Browne. Well played.
