Christopher Cross had definitely been a bucketlist performer for me for awhile.
I've had many chances over the years but it wasnt until I had recently given his
1980 debut a few spins that I decided it was time. He is known for his big hits,
but his album tracks (especially from that debut) are just as strong. Thankfully,
he played 7 of the 9 cuts from that record! His band was phenomenal, including
his 2 backing female vocalists. They added so much. Christopher's vocal delivery
has changed a bit over the past 30 years so hearing him sing these (especially
"Arthur's Theme") caught me by surprise. It wasnt a bad thing, just different.
Then again - who sounds like they did 30+ years ago? For a 67yr old, he was
amazing. He also told some funny anecdotes in between, the best being about a
nun in 8th grade. (It was after "Prayin'", so be sure to pay attention. I did
raise the levels when it needed (ie: The acoustic set and some of the quieter
songs). The crowd around me was great, no talkers, singers or screamers. We
stayed seated the entire set. If you're a fan of CC (even just a casual), I
highly recommend going out to see him and his band perform. It was a great
evening of music and stories. Enjoy!
