Next month in Pikeville, KY will make my 10th EC show since 2006. But I have never heard Eric play "Lightning" live at any of them! So Eric, if you're readin' this, I'd love to hear you play it at Pikeville during your acoustic solos!
On the day I die
I know where I'm gonna go
Me and Jesus got that part worked out
I'll wait at the gates til his face I see
And stand in a long line of sinners like me
I'll stand in a long line of sinners like me....
I have never seen him perform it live. Is it a reluctance or is it just now he has to pick and choose from more material? be cool if you got to ask him.
Been to several shows myself and have not heard it live either. Hoping for the same at the Bloomington, IL show.
He does LYLTM acoustic also :)
I am pretty sure he does luv ur luv acoustic also.
That is an intense song. Honestly I can't make it thru without a tear.
Dan It never hurts to ask if you have the chance. Goodluck.
In this current tour, he plays two acoustic songs "Sinners Like Me" and "Two Pink Lines." As much as I like "Two Pink Lines," I honestly would rather hear "Lightning!" If I get the chance to talk to him backstage, I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask, right?!?! :)
Obviously an awesome song. Particularly well suited to solo acoustic performance. Has he addressed his reluctance in any interviews?
I haven't heard ECB play Lightning at a show in nearly 2 ½ years :-/
I did get to hear it live once or twice.
Sorry dan, that's a very rare song for him to play, even back in 2006 when he only had "Sinners Like Me" out he only occasionally did that song. Good luck on him playing it but I probably wouldn't hold my breath for it. I've been lucky enough to hear him play it twice.
