* New Songs

It really takes the songs to a whole new level with the orchestra backing. I was a little saddened that he didn't play "Lullabye" but I'll live. The new songs were gorgeous, and I have a total new appreciation for the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.

Not bad for a concert in the middle of hurricane rains.
