Some concertgoers had this to say about the show:

Old Love was a masterclass in soulful playing from Eric and WDLGTBSS was blistering with great solos all round and a lovely fade with EC and Derek trading licks like they've never been apart. -Andy Balcam

It was nice to hear a few changes to the set from the previous evening including 'Old Love' and 'Why does love.' The solos screamed Eric early on with breathtaking performances in 'Why does love', 'Old Love', 'Sheriff', 'Little Queen.' etc.  - Mark Allen
