Regarding Harold Budd, I found that I could hear him much more in the second number. The piano DID make a difference. Maybe his sound was more evident on the live stream, perhaps ? In any event Harold is not exactly known for bashing away at the keys.

As one of the (very) lucky ones who were able to attend, the overall sound was magnificent. But I agree that Harold Budd's piano was somewhat buried in the first and third numbers he played on, it was clearer on the second number - maybe it's just my cloth ears!

I'm looking forward to watching/listening to the live stream and see if the piano is more evident on that. 8)

Yeah, unfortunately I barely heard a note on the live stream. Great event though and Bill, you were at the top of your game it seemed like to me. Bravo !

I'd like to add my thanks to all. It was a wonderful day and evening. The performance was sublime, as always. Like Eric and others, I was tearing up at times. So special.

And there are almost no words to express how amazing it is to be in the company of so many incredible, friendly, kind, generous and fun people. From Bill and Emiko, to Dave and Theo, to Ian and the entire team, to every single fan who was there...everyone was fantastic. I hated for the day to end.
