Very disappointing. The ticket should have had a warning label. “This concert will consist wholly of Mr. Browne’s basement riffs, familiar to only the most intimate followers”. Why do some artists feel like playing the music that made them famous (yes, mass market) is below them? It was more like a funeral dirge for the 1:15 that we stuck it out. Could do without the politics, too.

I was very disappointed by the Jackson Browne show on July 2nd. In the first half, he sang a series of low energy songs that kept the crowd seated and applauding politely. The second half had more energetic songs but the song choices did not build momentum. His last encore was not even his song. It was a Tom Petty song. At the end, I was just standing there waiting for him to come back out to sing 'Stay'. He never did. This was a very disappointing show.

Jackson Browne disappointed as he only played about half dozen songs that I’d ever heard. The hits he’d did too were good just too few. Most of the stuff he played was not very good and St. Louis Music Park is a terrible, terrible place to see a concert, particularly if Hollywood Amphitheater also has a show, which 5hey did on this night. Reo and Styx drew about 15,000 and traffic was absolutely terrible.

He talked more than he played any songs. If you weren’t directly in front of stage you couldn’t hear a word he was saying. No screens up to allow people to see any close ups and maybe get a better feel for what he was saying and get into it. He played songs that most people didn’t know and then we left. I guess the winery wants the musicians to play their hits later in their sets so they buy more wine. Won’t be visiting that venue in the near future and was very dissapointed as many people recommended the venue. Maybe I guess I’m getting a bit too old for this shit ! Didn’t see any Value in this concert !

2.0 star rating Torrey Lystra from Seattle, Washington


Very disappointed. I have seen many amazing shows of his from his early shows in San Diego, LA, and others. This was by far his weakest performance. Low key first half with songs most did not know. We sat maybe thirty rows back and only polite applause. No juice provided by band. Maybe three or four of his great tunes second half of show but no build up or effort to excite the crowd. In baseball parlance seemed like he lost his fastball.

2.0 star rating Brett from Columbus, Ohio


I have seen JB many times and this was very disappointing concert I can remember! He had no energy , the song selection was poor! We all spend our hard earned dollars to hear great music to hear his new music and the hits! I hope he was just having a bad night!

1.0 star rating from New Hampshire


spent a lot go time and money to see Jackson Browne, but unfortunately Lucious RUINED it! Jackson had a FANTASTIC bad and Back up singers, but this stupid duo, wearing log sleeved black turtlenecks on a hot 80 degree night, staring ONLY at each other, and never the audience. What the F___? They sang almost as many songs as Jackson! Really? Such waste of time and money! I am so sorry we went. NEVER EVER again.
