Tim McGraw & Faith Hill - Soul 2 Soul II Concert Review

During "Let Me Let Go" some beautiful etched glass lanterns dropped from the center of the stage to give a more romantic look to the stage.

For "The Lucky One" Faith strapped on an acoustic guitar, and strummed along with the song. She also sang an a capella song with her backup singers called "It Is Well With My Soul." Her final song of her set was "Take a Little Piece of My Heart."

The stage grew dark again, and a semi-sheer curtain dropped down around the center portion of the stage. When the lights came back up, Faith and Tim were sitting in the center, facing away from each other on chairs. They sang "Angry All The Time," and "Let's Make Love" before Faith left this time and it was time for Tim's portion of the show.

Tim was now dressed in a light blue long sleeve shirt with white tank underneath and jeans. He started his set with "Real Good Man," then "Where The Green Grass Grows." During "Don't Take The Girl," Tim allowed the audience to sing along on the chorus, and was really touched at the outpouring of love from the packed crowd. He talked about being on the road now for the past 17 years, and said he would continue to do so as long as we showed up, and he could get his jeans on.

After introducing his band, The Dancehall Doctors, he sang "Just To See You Smile."

Tim said that he had written some songs before, but he had never recorded anything he wrote until just recently, when he was asked to write a song for his upcoming motion picture My Friend Flicka, which is due out in October. The song is called "My Little Girl," and he wrote it about his daughters.

Tim sang many other of his hits, and also introduced a new song that I believe is called "Fly Away." It sounds pretty good. After "I Like It, I Love It," it was once more time for the duets portion of the show, and Faith returned to the stage in a long black and gold flowered sleeveless dress.

The two sang "Shotgun Rider," "It's Your Love," "No Woman, No Sky," and then ended the show facing each other, singing "I Need You" into an old-time microphone center stage. From our vantage point, we couldn't see both Tim and Faith well, as they were at an angle to where we were sitting. I was hoping the stage would rotate, giving everyone a view of them sitting face to face, but that didn't happen.

A warm kiss and hug, and Faith and Tim said their goodbyes to the crowd, going down each runway to face each side of the audience.

What a wonderful show. Vocally, and visually stunning. It lasted 2 hours and 45 minutes, and there wasn't more than 3-4 minutes between any set change. Outstanding! The only thing I wish they would have done, was perform a bit more facing each other, or facing the audience together. The only time they did this was when they were saying goodbye. All other performances were facing away from each other, or towards each other, but not at an angle where we could see them from the side. Other than that, this was one of the best shows I've seen from anyone.
