For those with a casual interest, you got your Pretender, Everyman, Running on Empty, Doctor My Eyes, Take it Easy, Shape of a Heart, Fountain of Sorrow, I'm Alive, Looking East, These Days. You got great musicality from his razor sharp band, and you got a warmed up, very toned singing voice. You got a three hour show with a 15 minute intermission. (Hey, we ALL wanted Late for the Sky- oh well) If you weren't a dedicated fan, you may not have loved the cuts from his new album, including the brilliant Birds of St. Marks. The dedicated fans loved to hear the long explanations about each song. We all got to appreciate his wit and humor. He was playing in his backyard and felt really at home and he said so. So go!! The casual listener needs to enjoy the musicianship of the first set and wait for the crowd pleasers in the second. GREAT SHOW!!

So Jackson comes out for his encore... he's sings the Load Out... which segues into Stay... : “Jackson Brown closing with the ultimate encore song, “The Load- Out/Stay” with lyrics like, “... people stay just a little bit longer, we wanna play just a little bit longer..” but in mid-song at 10 pm, the City turns off the PA system!” Honolulu has a noise ordinance. All outdoor concerts have to end at 10pm This was due to a 1981 BLUE OYSTER CULT CONCERT @ Andrews Amphitheater on the UH campus. I lived nearby when that happened. The wealthy home owners lobbied for the noise ordnance. & tonight was the first time I've seen it enforced. & on a closing # about 'Staying... A Little Bit Longer. Hilarious His 3 hour show was incredible. New, classics, and so In tuned to the audience. We’ve never seen him so relaxed. & his voice was in perfect tone. His guitar runner slagged... but that added just the right comedic edge to the perfectly delivered show. & talk about Tight(?) the band was great!

After an absolutely amazing performance by Jackson Browne and his band, the powers that be "pulled the plug" and shut down the music right in the middle of his encore . A huge disappointment for all the fans, and an embarrassment to Jackson Browne and his band. The Waikiki Shell management owes everyone a huge apology. What a rude way to treat a music legend!

The gentleman who wrote the pc. about his buddy, his wife and his daughter mirror my own experience. My daughter is now 24 and really no change. My son on the other hand, has more eclectic tastes...but he gets it. True Americana. Sums it up. Great pedal steel, and guitar player duo last night. I was lucky enough to have third row centre seats. Like he was in my living room [almost]. Not as up to date on his new music as I should be, for a devoted fan, so will take a closer listen. It was privilege to be in the same room, reality with such a great artist and such a part of my life. Just a peaceful easy feeling. Would recommend The Centre 100%, Those mirrors can be tricky for old guys and railings. Seat was great, though I prefer easier access in and out. Sorry for those I interrupted. Yes would take children absolutely. The restaurant Jimmys beside the Centre did not have enough help. Bit of a pain, but once we got to the bar it was great. Thanks for treating me Roberto.

One of his best concerts in years. The band is outstanding and, as Jackson Browne stated, they click together just like a Rubik’s cube. As usual, he started at the exact start time and played for almost three hours with a 15 minute break in the middle. Teaming with members of a gospel choir enriched the music; their addition to the ending of Lives in the Balance was spot on! Browne’s interaction with the audience was perfect so we didn’t get a “cookie cutter” performance. He is still on top of his game.
