Some quotes from concertgoers:

Tonight's opener really did see EC come out and literally blow the roof off. - Ian McCormack

Highlights were the usual suspects really - the long, slow blues of Little Queen, the dramatic building solo in Sheriff and the intimate sit-down set which gives the ever impressive Derek Trucks an opportunity to play some beautifully understated slide. - Andy Balcam

'Little Queen Of Spades' was for me the highlight of the evening. The blues soloing was mind blowing, showing that no-one can touch him when its flowing, and it sure did. - Mark Allen
