The first hour-long set consisted of Crosby and his tight band running through most of the new "Croz" album, complete with stories and humorous asides. Crosby was in extremely good spirits and bantered with the crowd throughout the night, and even humbly debuted a song or two.
The second half of the set, lasting 90 minutes, kicked off with a blazing version of the classic Byrds song "Eight Miles High". The next dozen songs or so were an amalgam of hits like "Long Time Gone", "Guinnevere", and "Deja Vu", along with some more obscure tracks. To top off the night, Crosby and his group brought the show to a close before the skies opened up on the Windy City for an electrifying version of "Cowboy Movie" from his acclaimed "If I Could Only Remember My Name" album.
