Harry was EXCELLENT. Even though he didn't play any of his earlier stuff (since it's a salute to N.O.) he and his band were still awesome.
That being said, when will the theater/concert-going public in Indy adhere to typical "etiquette". I have lived in Boston and Chicago over the years and attended many cultural events in each. Since attending events after moving to Indy this past year I have never witnessed so many patrons showing-up late for a performance, talking during performances, or like last night, asking for an autograph while the performer is singing! Unfortunately, the venues (Murat, ISO, Pike PAC) do little if anything to prevent this.
I grew-up in the country in Southern Indiana, so I'm no "city snob" but I do know common courtesy and how most arts venues work...more people here should learn the same.

After 17 years, I finally saw Harry!! The show was Awesome. But I couldn't believe all of the people that were getting up from their seats during the show! There was a man seated 2 seats down from me actually talking on his phone before he got up. He did this twice! Whatever, all was better after the show when I got to meet Harry and get an autograph. I love him, he was so gracious and sweet!
