Great show from Charlie Pride tonight at the State Theatre`!
Walking on with white pants and a great glittery shirt Charlie sang just about all of his hits, albeit some such as Mississippi Cotton Picking Delta Town only briefly in one of his many Medley's I loved his hunour at pretending to limp, his dealing with Hecklers by heckling back and his hilarious 6 piece band intros near the end of the 80 minute show with the Keyboardist being announced as having been with him for 36 years 9 months, 27 days 5 hours and 8 minutes!!!
very amusing. After the intros he put on Guitar and broke into HEARTBREAK HOTEL but only very briefly b4 saying what a great singer Elvis was and closing his show with 'Kiss an Angel Good Morning and Kaw-Liga ..,... good show although on Crystal Chanderliers he was clearly showing his 75 years age~! nice touches during the show were him highlighting a 90 year old woman in the audience and really singing some of my fav songs such as 'streets of Baltimore ' and 'Bobby sang the Blues' perfectly. He has a bit of a belly now under his shirt and shows his age in his walk and voice but i left fully satisfied in seeing him a 2nd time since my Entertainment Center 1988 show (when he started with microphone problems and his son was drumming for him) and loving the evening with him
