If so, the concert venue certainly went out in a blaze of rockin’ Texan glory. Lyle Lovett and his 15 piece band opened just before sunset and played nearly three hours straight for the amphitheater’s jam-packed audience. Mr. Lovett remained on stage during the entire show!
Even the weather paid respects to Lovett and the Soleri—the forecasted thunderstorms remained at bay for the entire evening and as the concert drew to a close, even the clouds were gone and the stars came out. It had been another beautiful Santa Fe evening to sit outdoors and listen to some incredible music.
One of the highlights of Lovett’s performance, other than his dreamy rendition of my personal favorite, If I had a Boat, was his mention that when he played in Phoenix the night before, Paolo Soleri himself came by during his sound check to talk about the concert likely being the last at the Soleri venue.
