Did anybody see Allen on David Letterman last night? It was like David Letterman couldn't get over it that Allen was there on stage! He was just giddy!

Hi. I just got home from the Neil Young show at Ruth Eckerd Hall (Clearwater, Florida). I have to admit I did not know who you were (I often like to be surprised by opening acts, so I do little research on them). HOLY COW! What an amazing and fun performance! I talked with some of my friends during the break and they were floored too. You just went from 0 to 100 in my book!

Saw Allen and had a chance to meet him backstage in Aspen, CO this past weekend. At the 7908 Aspen Songwriters Festival. What an amazing performance. I heard several of the performers remark that they had just seen the most incredible performance of their lifetimes!

Thanks for the picture Allen, I'll never forget!

I agree - the performance of a life time!!

Leaving San Diego Wednesday, have tickets for the show at George Mason on Sunday. Now if he would just play "Whirlaway"!

It was a fabulous concert! If Mr. Toussaint is anywhere near (or not near!), go and enjoy an evening that can only be described as magical.

Caught "New Orleans Nights" in Bethlehem PA, a week ago. Awesome show, had an incredible evening.

Does Allen have plans to perform in Atlanta, GA? I have heard so much about him that I would like to meet him. My sister has told me a great deal about him when she met him in Maryland.

Does anyone know if Allen is planning to play the Toronto Jazz Festival again this year? Saw him last year and he and his band brought the house down! What a show! Can't wait to get the chance to experience such fine music again.

This show is almost sold out. I think I may have to buy a sit close to the stage even if I have to sit with another couple! Also, it looks like a nice venue. Quoting CW504:

Got to see him last night in the middle of nowhere (Western Oregon U). He was very tired to start, and the speakers were all screwed up...but as the night went on, the sound system was fixed, and Allen relaxed. He got better, and inspired the locals to play beyond their limits. Then he did a 15-20 minute instrumental. I have seen allot of acts over my 60 years...but this one was memorable...but not recorded...like a American Native drawing in the sand, he finished, and it was gone...but the feeling it inspired will always be there...

Hi, just saw the man with Mark Ribot at Jazz Middelheim in Antwerp (on this site anounced as a solo concert). Really amazing performance, I was flabbergasted! Allen Toussaint is absolutely great. Cheers, Jan
 
 
# TDChitown 2011-08-15 10:13
Does anyone know whether Mr. Toussaint plays any unannounced sets when he's in New Orleans? I'm trying to get to NOLA for Stomp 9/16, and just wondering if I might catch him at a low-key bar/club that Saturday. Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thanks!!
