Three Dog Night Concert Review

Hi Kent - 

Due to an electrical outage in the area, the Three Dog Night concert at Hoover Auditorium in Lakeside, Ohio almost did not happen ... but ... "The Show Must Go On" and power was restored 30 minutes before show time.   

The show started a little later due to the outage, but the wait was worth it as founding members Danny Hutton and Cory Wells put on a great show of their hits, a couple new songs, and what they called "old new songs" (songs from albums that were not hits).  

The show started with hit after hit, "Family of Man", "Black and White", "Never Been to Spain", "Shambala" and "Out in the Country".  Then mixing old and new songs, followed up with "It's For You", "An Old Fashioned Love Song", "Leave Your Hat On", "One", "It Ain't Easy", "Heart of Blues", "Liar", "Sure As I'm Sitting Here", "Mama Told Me Not To Come" and "Celebrate".  

Coming out for an encore, was a new a cappella song called "Prayer" which brought the crowd to their feet ... and then finished up with "Joy To The World".  

A great show and fun evening for all.

As always, Tom fills out his review with some GREAT shots from the show.  

We've seen Cory and Danny a few times now these past three years ... and it is always an amazing show.  "Prayer Of The Children" is nothing short of breath-taking ... incredible that they can pull that off (to perfection) every single night.  

Thanks, Tom, for another great review.  (kk)
