Barclays Center 12-17-13
The tour came to a spectacular end last night in Brooklyn.
As I'm sure you've heard, the night was full of surprise appearances. After debuting the amazing "Who You Love" music video
on GOOD MORNING AMERICA
, Katy Perry
joined John on stage at the Barclays Center
for the first ever live performance of the song. John and Katy were backed by the band and an added horn section and it really sounded beautiful.
After that, it was Phillip Phillips'
turn to sit in on the second encore song. He helped to sing "Please Come Home for Christmas"
while goofing off with everyone onstage and pretending to fan himself over John's phenomenal guitar solo. With Christmas trees adorning the video wall, the whole song was enjoyable to watch.
was the final song of the night and John ended it in spectacular fashion, holding his signature guitar high in the air before throwing it on the ground and finishing his final solo. The perfect ending to the show and the tour. Even though I've seen him do that a handful of times over the past couple of months, it never ceases to astound me.
It's hard to believe but that ends our touring for 2013. We started in late June, and I honestly couldn't tell you if that seems like a really long or a really short time ago. Either way, I want to thank you all for following along this year and for coming out to the shows, whether during the summer or winter. It was an amazing tour and I feel lucky to have been a part of it.
See you Down Under
