Second Leg of the Tour Starts with a Bang

June 5th, 2008

“Happy summertime to you too!” welcomed the crowd to the second leg of the Year Of Still Here Tour in Atlanta, Georgia.

Returning to the Lakewood Amphitheatre for the first time in two years, the first set remained largely the same, the exceptions being a new arrangement for “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes”, as it jumped from the second set into the first set, replacing “We’re Still Here,” which was absent for the first time of the tour, and the second outing of “Cowboy in the Jungle.” The new arrangement for “Changes” featured a slower pace and a prominent acoustic guitar rather than electric.

The second set was shuffled some with “Tryin’ to Reason with Hurricane Season” sliding into the set for the first time and “The City” returning for the first time since September 19, 2006 in Austin, Texas. Other changes saw “Volcano” and Nadirah’s “Makin’ Music for Money” sliding down a few spots each.

The only change in the encores was in the second one, with the first known performance of John Prine’s “Big Old Goofy World” solo on acoustic guitar.
