February 11, 2011 Lyle Lovett & John Hiatt
Downtown Joliet, IL
We spent two and a half hours in the unbelievably beautiful Rialto Square Theater watching two of the greatest singer songwriters in America. Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt. They each sat on a chair and took turns playing their songs on acoustic guitars. In between each song, they told stories, talked about how the songs were written and joked around with each other and the audience. It was a great night for this music fan. They even took requests though John Hiatt did warn he might not remember all the words to "Trudy & Dave" when it was requested. He attempted it and when he screwed up, he just laughed and said "oh shit". Both artists spent time complimenting and goofing on each other. If you are a fan of music, I highly recommend seeing either of these two. If your are real lucky, you might get to see them together. After the show we ran into Lyle in the alley behind the theater, I told him that I loved the show. He being the ever so polite southern gentleman said thank you very much.
