David Cook Morongo Concert

I went to the David Cook concert at Morongo Casino tonight. This was his first concert since New Year's Eve, and he's been busy writing songs for his next album. He played one of those new songs at the end of the show - it's called "U and I" and was co-written with David Hodges.

Also, his American Idol pal Carly Smithson showed up as a special guest to sing "Barracuda", a song she and David and Jason Castro had wanted to play on the Idol tour together.

The playlist: I Did It For You (I love this live. So much better than on the CD. Love the guitar orgy at the end!), Mr. Sensitive, Heroes, Kiss On The Neck, Lie, Declaration, Bar-ba-sol, Make Believe, Barracuda, Come Back To Me, Light On (encore), U And I (encore).

One thing that was really cool was that before one of his songs, David asked for not a moment of silence but cheering for the people of Haiti and Chile. It was a really nice, loud outpouring of love and support. :)

As always, Cook puts on a great show. My only complaint is that it seemed too short. But he looked and sounded fantastic, and we got a new song and Carly! I wasn't sure what to expect from the venue, but I thought the sound was really good, and I had a good view, so thumbs up for me.
