King George returned to the Austin City Limits’ Stage, headlining both weeks of the festival early this month, and he put on an absolutely electric performance.
While of course he played a ton of the insane amount of Number 1’s he has (60, if you’re counting), he even treated fans to a cover of Waylon Jennings’ “Waymore’s Blues”.
If you weren’t fortunate enough to be at Zilker Park, you can relive his performance with a Front Row Mini Concert, courtesy of StraitCinema on YouTube.
From the opener “Stars On The Water,” to “I Saw God Today,” to “Amarillo By Morning,” and all the rest, George looks and sounds pretty dang good up there for any age, let alone a ripe 69.
And that crowd, you’d swear he just hitting his peak with how they cheered after each performance. That is truly something special.
Keep it up, King.
