DON'T SPEND PREMIUM $ FOR YOUR TICKETS!
I wish that I'd read the comments prior to ponying up quite a bit for great seats at the Peabody in STL. We've loved Ray for what seems like forever....however...this show was extremely disappointing. I pride myself on being able to listen to any kind of music...and even enjoy his new album. Iunderstand he is going thru a "rebranding" in his music. HOWEVER, the band completely drowned out his beautiful voice, and the concert dragged in places. I'm aware that Ray isn't much for speaking with the audience, but the connection between him and the audience just wasn't there. There was no one in the audience singing along...everyone was just staring at the stage. The final song was almost difficult to listen to, and involved Ray just singing "Oh" over and over for about 3 minutes...definitely wouldn't have chosen it for a closer. I won't completely hang my review up on "he didn't play any of his old stuff", but that was disappointing as well.

SO DISAPPOINTED . He played one song that everyone knew. NOTHING ELSE. All of his hits like Trouble, Jolene etc. Nothing. The acoustics were awful, he played unknown music , mostly everyone around us left before the encore . Many people couldn't believe how lousy he was. I paid nearly 200$ to hear yelling , raunchy electric guitars.

I battled a cold dank night to attend this outdoor concert in the rain and was excited and looking forward to it. I have never felt as disrespected as a music fan and avid concert goer as I did tonight. This man made a point of not playing one fan favorite song the entire night. Great songs like For the summer, Beg steal and borrow, Drive in movie, You are the best thing, Jolene, and Trouble totally missing. At one point someone hollered Jolene and he replied no t happening. All I can say is what an asshole.

Totally disappointed. Not a single one of his older hits. The acoustics sucked for the loud screaming guitars, sound was a lot better when he played the acoustic guitar. But he absolutely did not play what his fans paid to see. Heard MANY individuals discussing how disappointed they were on their way out.

RAY IS TOO COOL FOR HIS FANS NOW
Saw Ray at the Boston Pavilion on Saturday. He had a chip on his shoulder the entire night. He refused to play any of his known or popular songs almost as if trying to prove a point. I totally understand that he wants to promote his new music- as he should. But to purposefully not play songs that are his hit songs (hits for a reason), is like spitting in our faces (and his own, to be honest). Such a disappointing night. I hate that I now feel differently about him. Also would have been nice if he communicated at all with the audience. The only words he uttered the entire night were in response to a fan yelling for Jolene “If you’re here to hear Jolene, then you’re going to be waiting all *ucking night.” Way to go, Ray. Keeping it classy and respectful to your fans who paid a lot of money to come out to see you, and who have supported you all these years. Such a disappointing night.

RAY RAY GO AWAY COME BACK ...
....when your older songs are also part of the act. I totally understand that you want to promote your new music but you left many of your fans feeling like they were still waiting for you to give us what we wanted to hear...it just never happened. Great venue, Chicago!

I WAS A HUGE FAN. I WILL NEVER PAY TO LISTEN TO HIM AGAIN.
I went to my 4th and last Ray concert. He has a great talent. But now he is a sell out. With out a soul. I left so angry and ripped off. He clearly didn't care about the fans that pay for his great life. Never played a single song that anyone wanted to hear. All I needed was one of the old and great songs. Selfish little boy
