Phwoar. The original JT. James Taylor and his incredible band KILLED IT tonight. This particular gig marks the end of this current tour, which took him from New Zealand and Australia through to Singapore and Hong Kong, and my goodness I’m so glad I was there at this last show.
The rundown was separated into two sections, with a 20 minute intermission in between. And just like a few days ago in Singapore, he signed autographs for the entire 20 minutes – he never went backstage during the intermission – and the crowd of people at the front of the stage wouldn’t disperse until he actually had to get up off his knees on the stage and start singing. He didn’t even stop to drink some water, he just got up, picked up his guitar (his band were already back on stage and playing) and started.
The first section ended with “Shed a Little Light”.. So poignant, and still so current, this song… James Taylor rules.
And recognise that there are ties between us
All men and women living on the Earth
Ties of hope and love
Sister and brotherhood
