The show started at 7:30 with openers Roger Arnold and The Fable and the Fury kicking things off. Shortly after 9, Eddie Money and his band hit the stage, opening with his rock classic "Baby Hold On." Money and the three other musicians onstage played acoustic, but still pumped up versions of songs from the Eddie Money library. The set included popular favorites like "I Wanna Go Back," "Gimme Some Water," "Take Me Home Tonight" and "Think I'm in Love." They even did the old Smokey Robinson and the Miracles tune "You've Really Got a Hold on Me," that Money covered on his first album, released in 1977.
Eddie played saxophone, harmonica, and at one point even keyboards as he had a fun time with the Little Rock crowd. He shared some stories, told a lot of corny one-liners and got sentimental during his song "One More Soldier Coming Home" as he pushed the crowd to give to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
The show ended with "Two Tickets to Paradise," followed by the encore (though Eddie never actually left the stage) "Shakin." He seemed to have a great time in Little Rock, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him come back some time. For more information on Eddie Money, go to www.eddiemoney.com.
