Radio City Music Hall
I spent my first 26 years in California.
Lived in Newport Beach, L&M country from
What an incredible concert. The last time I was at Radio City I was in high school; it is certainly gorgeous; the best thing is was almost filled. The crowd was great; loved Kenny & Jimmy. What's not like to like? They were both awesome as well as the band; everyone's solo was fantastic.
Not only can Kenny sing and is very funny, he can dance ... just love his
little jig during the instrumental in "Be Free." Now looking forward to the DVD. - Judy
Wow!!! is the word I would use for this concert. It was
our 30th anniversary
deja Vu , talk about bringing you back. I closed my eyes and was brought
What a great evening of music! From the opening notes of "Watching the River Run" to the "Danny's Song" sing-along to end the show, it was just wonderful to listen to the sound of their voices and instruments fill the great Radio City Music Hall. Seeing them finally after being a fan for so long was the fulfilment of a long-time dream. Here's hoping we get 30 more years of Pooh! - Tom & Pam B.
last time I saw Loggins & Messina was on their farewell tour in 1976
at the Nassau Coliseum. 29 years later I was sitting in Radio City not
knowing what to expect. I was truly please by the quality of the show,
band and overall experience.
Great show! In Fall '74 I saw my first L&M show in Nassau Coliseum. The last show I saw was at Cornell University.
After catching the Holmdel, NJ show I wanted more...and the Radio City show delivered. One of my best friends from college had never seen Kenny & Jimmy together...he and his wife flew up from Atlanta to catch the show. We all loved it. Hard to pick a favorite tune, but was happy to hear "Another Road" - it wasn't on the set list in Holmdel and it is one of my favorites (just want to mention, Kenny breaking into "Friend of the Devil" in Holmdel brought smiles to everyone around me...small magic moment...)...
The harmonies are still there. If there is any big difference in sound, it's that Kenny has improved on electric guitar. The rest is gloriously the same as ever!
I'll be one of the first to buy the cd from the shows...but I am really hoping Kenny, Jimmy and this band will get into a studio and record some new music...I'm guessing Jimmy is sitting on some great tunes ... Kenny too. Kenny said it well while he was on his own... "Keep the Fire"!! And start some new ones please! - Dick Porter
An evening full of memorable highlights ... Kenny's maniacal

and I attended the show in Holmdel -- our first time ever seeing them
live -- and counted the days until the Radio City show! I thought the
last show was one of the best I have seen this year - but this one was
even better. Jim and Kenny play with such enthusiasm and look like they
are having as good of a time as the audience is. They could not have picked
a better group of guys to play along with them - they are all so talented.
It was 3 hours of pure
I have been a big fan of Loggins & Messina since the early 70s, and I have been very excited with the prospect of being able to see them again. Last night was my opportunity at Radio City Music Hall in NY city.
From the very first note, it was obvious why I always loved this band. Their vocal harmonies were so clear and perfect, I closed my eyes and I was back in 1973. It was clear that they were really enjoying themselves.
They always had great musicians in their band, and they have always been generous in sharing the spotlight with those great musicians. I can see that they did an amazing job selecting musicians that not only were great players, but also complimented Kenny and Jim, as well as the other members of the band.
I am a music lover, and last night was the most fun musically I have had in a long time. The crowd was extremely receptive to their music, singing along with most of the songs, and it was crazy, but it seemed like it did seeing them in the 70s. Women dancing and swaying and everyone jumping around.
I hope that Kenny and Jim were encouraged enough to continue performing and even writing some new music. I think Loggins & Messina did not have a long enough run, and I would love to see the young people exposed to them for the first time. They will then learn and realize what great music is. - Kenny K
The one and only Loggins & Messina concert I had ever seen was in March 1973, at Carnegie Hall. Although I had attended many rock concerts since then, for years I would always tell my friends that the L & M show in 1973 was the best concert I had ever attended (Jim Croce was the opening act!). I still remember the excellent band
they had - including the late Jon Clarke (to whom the current tour is dedicated), who played two saxophones at once - I can still picture it!
When I heard that Kenny and Jimmy were back on tour,
I couldn't wait to see them again. However, I must admit I was apprehensive,
since I couldn't imagine how they
When I learned that they would be in the New York area
again, I had to buy tickets for the Radio City Music Hall show. They matched
the Jones Beach show, and thrilled
Hearing Kenny and Jimmy, with their exceptional band,
play almost all their classics reminded me of how good their music (and
much music from that era) was. They made me want to dust off their lyrics
and sing some of their repertoire myself, as I did in the old "wine
and cheese" cafes in the 70's - "Long Tail Cat', "Danny's
I can only hope that, given the success of their tour, and the exceptional response from their audiences, Kenny and Jimmy will decide to stay together a bit longer, and perhaps write some new music. A tour in '06 would be great! Thank you, Kenny and Jimmy, for giving us all a musical experience we will never forget. - Brian McGeough
