"A lot of guys would say to their wife, 'Do you mind if I go play golf with my buddies?' That's how I am about the show. I love it. If there's a song I don't like, I cut it and bring in a new song. Everything is something I want to do. So to be here tonight, supporting this cause - and it couldn't have been a more generous crowd if it tried - in every way it was great."
