It said he did an acoustic set, I wonder what other songs were in that set? The performance was good on LOM, not great but good. He sounds rusty, like a guy that has been off for 7 months.

I'm sorry, what does this even mean???? I was thanking Nikki for telling me that the set Richie said he was playing was only one song.

Thanks for the link to his performance, good or bad, looking good or terrible, sounding OK or awful... I still consider myself a fan of the band, and till he is "officially" no longer part of it, I will support ALL the members.

I thought he looked and sounded pretty good, maybe a bit rusty occasionly.
It must be difficult though to be passionate and perform when there isnt a live audience - kinda singing your heart out to an empty room.
It was nice to see Luke on the back row - a good, sensible, successful in their own right type friend?

I liked it too. It was an occasion not for him to belt out a song but just to simply sing and let the message do the talking.

Thanks for the link to the song. I thought it was ok. Just wish he was going to be standing on stage tomorrow night in CT with BJ.

He sounded OK but a lack of performing was definitelly evident.

It was painful to watch :( Miss him.

I didn't think he sounded very good, but maybe it was the song choice. Certain voices are suited to certain songs. He sounds great on his albums, he sounds great when they do Midnight Rider as an intro to Wanted, he and Jon did a great cover of Mrs. Robinson in London some years ago (video is out there in YouTube land) but I just didn't care for this performance.

Also, I don't know about any of you, but I knew nothing about this until he tweeted it would be happening in a few hours. Was he asked last minute? Seems strange he didn't plug it in some way before he did it to bring attention to the cause.

I didn't think it was a very good performance either. He tends to "over sing" at times and IMO this is what he has done here. Sometimes less is more and with this song and setting I think this is one of those times. Somewhere between his soft singing at the beginning (which you can barely hear) and the over singing and "big stage" hand gestures during the rest of the song, there is that "happy medium" that he just didn't find.

I think it was a good performance. He looked fine. So glad to see him perform. I found out from his tweet to let us know. Nikki tweeted During the performance and I didnt see Lauries until after it was over.

He started out off key but he didn't stay there long. Probably from lack of rehearsals or a crap ear piece. Sounded like Richie on a more somber song to me - and I know I am hopeless but I think he looked wonderful. No Nikki influence fashion model BS. He looked like the guitar man. I was so glad to see that and just that he was making music again. I don't think those guys, especially Luke are there to use him like some IMO are now - just jam. They are doing the Dreamfound charity gala this Saturday (private) but hope someone gets video or at least pictures. Here's Luke's tweet about it.
