This show was killer. I was really looking forward to it (which I rarely do nowadays) and he did not disappoint. Opening with an extended acoustic set, he was later joined by The 88 for a full rocking electric segment. Proper review with setlist here.

Of all the shows I get to see throughout a given year, I am more excited to see this one more than any other. Ray will be playing most of the show with his backing band The 88, as well an acoustic solo interlude. Courtesy of Drusky Entertainment, I have a pair of passes to give away to a lucky reader of this blog. To enter, email me at with the subject line ‘Ray Davies’ and the name of the person who will bring I.D. to the venue on the night of the show. This contest runs until Friday, October 28 when the winner will be randomly chosen and contacted. Good luck.
