Richard's report of the show:
The concert started with a silent film of a very young Peter. Four Monkees songs were played during the film: "When Love Comes Knockin'," "I Don't Think You Know Me," "I Can't Get Her Off My Mind" and "The Kind of Girl I Could Love." Also featured was the opening credits of the movie "Easy Rider" where onstage he played the song he submitted for the film. He played mostly acoustic guitar during the performance, and the banjo on "Cripple Creek" and piano on "Shades of Gray."
Here's another review that was posted on the Steve Hoffman Music Forums by user JuanTCB:
Caught the matinee Tork gig at Iridium this afternoon and I couldn't be more impressed. It was just Peter on mainly guitar (with a bit of banjo and piano), basically detailing his musical influences/experiences from childhood up through the end of the '60s (including his rejected "Easy Rider" theme which was very cool to finally hear). He looked great, played fantastically, was surprisingly strong of voice, and was funny as hell. And really gracious while signing and posing for pics afterwards, too. The whole gig had a very mellow, engaging, coffee-house kind of vibe. Peter & Andrew Sandoval put together a really cool little show - if you're on the fence about checking it out, go without reservation!
