Reviewer, Joe Russo comments on the setlist that night:
“We’re going to make some music tonight,” said Ronnie before opening with the blues rock and harmonica tinged “Am I Groovin’ You” from his 1974 solo debut I’ve Got My Own Album to Do. Wood also performed other original material from his solo career including his gospel-tinged "I Gotta See" and "Spoonful" from I Feel Like Playing.
Next up was the Faces’ “Cindy Incidentally,” where Fowler took over the singing duties for most of the remainder of the night. Other Faces tunes included "(I Know) I'm Losing You", "Flyin" and Wood back on vocals for "Ooh La La".
Other notable highlights: Ronnie and his wonder band grooving on some reggae riffage that made Ronnie dance on “Sweetness is My Weakness". Leavell took over lead vocals for a great rendition of the Allman Brothers Bands' "Statesboro Blues". Woody expertly covered Bob Dylan’s "Seven Days," which originally appeared on Ronnie’s 1979 solo album Gimme Some Neck. “Here’s a song I stole off Bob Dylan…Or he gave to me,” quipped Wood.
The night wouldn't have been complete without a taste of the Stones. Woody dug in for a few rarities and classics such as "Black Limousine". The main set was concluded by "It's Only Rock N Roll (But I Like It)" and "Dance". The crowd ate it all up and let the band know they wanted more.
The show wrapped with a two-song encore comprised of blues standard "Worried Life Blues," where Wood sang and played the song like an old bluesman, and finally, Ronnie and the band channeled Rod Stewart and the Faces with the classic "Stay With Me," where Fowler sang and Woody took us out with that mean slide guitar playing of his.
