Live in Victoria, BC on December 18th, 2014. I couldn't believe it when I saw the tour date.
My mind was absolutely blown. He was in town doing his Life Acoustic tour, which I believe is STILL going on - it's been an amazing worldwide tour.
I've been a huge Everlast fan for years and as soon as the show was announced I ran downtown to go buy tickets. It seemed like forever waiting for the show.
I remember at this show I heard the song 'Long Time' for the first time ever and I was in tears. It was such an amazing experience and from where I was, I could literally almost reach out and touch him. He played so many of my favorites and I managed to get a great recording of both 'Little Miss America' and 'This Kind of Lonely.' I've come to realize that recording songs at shows takes away from the atmosphere. You feel like you're preserving the moment, but really you're ignoring the experience around you. That's my take on it at least, these days.
Anyways. His set blew me away and I stood fixated for the entire set. Such a wonderful experience.
I think the coolest part of the whole thing was this though.
Mid-February I was browsing through Facebook before heading to bed, and saw this picture come up on my news feed and was like, "Oh yeah, that's me at the Everlast show, cool." Then I looked closer at the photo and realized who had posted it.
Needless to say I freaked out.
Anyways, to wrap it up, if you ever get the chance to see this man perform his acoustic set, do it, buy a ticket and go I promise you won't regret this amazing show. I'll remember this show as long as I live!
And check out this song!
