Sorry, I don't remember the real order.


Overall, good show.   

He played for about 2 hours and twenty minutes.   Which was more than i was expecting.    I think Ben lost track of time.   Cause near the end, someone came on stage and signaled to Ben that he could only play for 10 more minutes.   He never had a chance to do an encore.   But that's okay.

Opening act, Jukebox The Ghost were surprisingly good.   I will probably get their album.


The show was far from sold out.  (I don't think it was promoted at all... never even saw a single blurb in the local newspapers or anything.)

It was also Ben's first full length concert in South Florida, since 1997!   I guess now I can stop bitching!


(His only South Florida gigs since then:  short set as an opening act for Tori Amos, and again for John Mayer... plus a brief festival set at Langerado in the Everglades last year.)




I was originally also supposed to go to the Orlando show the night before, but had a bit of a last minute family emergency, and had to skip that one.   Of course, I had already entered and won a meet & greet for Orlando.   Luckily, when Ben's tour manager emailed me instructions for the Orlando M&G, I told her I can't go, but is there any way you can do something for me in Boca?     Which she did.   So I got to meet Ben after the show.    I thought that was very nice.



That's about it.

I really wanted to go to this show!! But staying in lovely Illinois was way better than going to warm, sunny Florida.  Glad it was a good show.  I graduated from FAU way back when and the only act ever on campus worth a damn was Dave Chapelle, this was before he was big, but man was he funny.  He started talking about being hungry, passed a hat around the audience and came up with a few hundred bucks and everyone left and went to Denny's with him.  Denny's gave the boot to the lot of us and the party moved to a bowling alley. Oh, God I feel old now, when nostalgia for college creeps up it is time for a mid life crisis. Perhaps a new Nissan 370z will help.  There, I have now officially gone on to long...
