75 min set list/ 13 songs
Concert opens with audio from Never Broken book
“Somewhere Over the Rainbow” (acoustic, Jewel’s silhouette only)
-Story- combined bunny/chicken, moving out at 15, boss propositioning, losing the house she rented with a ‘sick relative’, living in car that gets stolen, shoplifting, journaling, coffeeshop, camping, 9/11
“Hands”
“Here When Gone”
“Morning Song”
-Story- homesteaders- Yule and Ruth
“My Father’s Daughter”
Switches guitar
-mini story about living in car writing herself lullabies she wished someone sang her
“Angel Standing By”
Switches back to original guitar for rest of set
“Standing Still”
“Down So Long”
Takes requests
“You Were Meant for Me” (only request she did, despite my best efforts)
“Foolish Games”
“Mercy”
Jewel mentions strict curfew of casino and time for one more song
-Story- Spring Break hitchhiking to Mexico and back and not getting murdered
“Who Will Save Your Soul”
Encore
“Chime Bells”
The 13 songs were basically her Greatest Hits Album with only 3 new songs from current album. I would have preferred many more songs from the new album. I think when she did the poll at the beginning, she catered to the fact that the majority of the audience were first time concert goers so she stuck to just the ‘hits’. I hope y’all have more songs and better variety at future venues/dates.
Jewel: Voice was flawless, looked beautiful- different style of dress than I usually see and cute mini cowboy boots, her stories sounded fresh, even though I’d heard them a dozen times, she even added that after her boss propositioned her, she slept with him (‘totally kidding!’), she threw in a couple references about ex-husband – 9/11 story- camping with my future husband who is now my ex-husband, the audience LOVED her and really enjoyed the show.
Overall technical thoughts: Stage was nice- I liked the raised stage instead of the normal rug so she was about 12 inches higher, pretty curtain and lighting on background and candle-like lights at front of stage, 2 rows of chairs on stage to signify intimate setting??, but where was the bouquet of flowers?; lighting on Jewel was horrible. Her face was dark most of the time while her body and guitar were lit; I’m most disappointed it was only a 75 minute set. Her opening act had 45 min. She should cut them to 30 min and give herself 90 min, if she has those strict time limits again; I hate Casino audiences- although they didn’t really talk through the whole thing like at other Casino dates, they yelled throughout her songs (at random parts not just after an incredibly impressive part) instead of just enjoying her voice, people got up constantly. I was 5th row center aisle and if I tried to video a song, at least 3 people would walk in front of me during any given song.
I’m so happy they offered the live show recordings like they did at Greatest Hits Tour. If she would have had pre-signed cds and books, I would have bought extras to give away. Her website ran out of signed stuff so fast last fall that I didn’t buy my normal Jewel Christmas gifts for people.
Can't wait to see y'all's pictures and setlists over the next two months!

Just while we were sitting here today, they added Ft Pierce, Orlando, Wilmington NC, Durham, and Greensboro to the list! (I've had to edit three times now, because every time I refresh the Tunes on Tour site another show pops up!)

So, these can be purchased without actually attending the show? I want to make sure we don't miss the ones we're going to, but if we can get them a few days later anyway, I'm not as worried about it.
