    I too have been very interested in finding out if there is any pictures or video or whatever from this. I think this is a big thing, Eddie playing again, even if its just for a song. Anyways, this is all I can find.....a review from leslie west official site message board.

    OUTSTANDING, could not believe how good he still is.
    An average size crowd got to see the legend in great form and it looked like he really enjoyed playing for his fans. At 37, I was probably the youngest guy there.
    He started with classic Leslie solos to warm up and ripped into Blood of the Sun, this was followed by Leslie talking to the audience about an "amateur" guitarist who he had invited on stage. This amateur was none other than Eddie Van Halen, Yes , Eddie Van Halen..
    They proceeded to rip into Never in my Life trading licks back and forth. Talk about loud. Leslie , the pro that he is, let Eddie take most of the soloing and all the fills until it was his turn and then he taught the virtuoso a thing about tone and vibrato. I mean , I love Eddie, no doubt he is one of the greats, But Less is sometimes More when it comes to expression on the guitar. Still it was a thrill to see the respect given to Leslie by Eddie.

    He then introduced his experiences of " being pretty high"
    at Woodstock and played For Yasgurs Farm. WOW.
    I was hoping he would play this song as I heard he may include it into his set. For those of us that know this song. We know the power and feelings it delivers at the same time. Great Tune.

    Leslie then talked about his partner Felix in tribute fashion. Their history led to Crossroads and he tore it up.
    lets not forget Corky pounding away exactly like he had played on vinyl. Drumsticks were flying all night as if he wanted the whole crowd to have a stick( He later signed one for my wife)

    He brilliantly performed Theme explaining how difficult it was for him to learn. Talking about how Jack Bruce and Eric didn"t want to use it in Cream. I could only think about how I have been "learning" that song for the last twenty years.( Still dont have it down but sometimes I surprise myself)

    He continued with what I believe was Mystic Fire off the new album, I was not really sure as I only listened to it about 4 times straight through. Good tunes . He also played a newer version of Sea of Fire which was excellent. He went into Why Dontcha and excerpts of Hall of the Mountain King while throwing in the close encounters theme using heavy volume control and what sound like delay. Pretty Cool.

    He finished with Nantucket and encored with Mississippi Queen. It was truly a great experience to see the man again. I cant help but to feel so overwhelmed with emotion as my late brother Bob told me twenty-five years ago as I was listening to Page and Blackmore, Theres no one like Leslie and his sound is UNMATCHED.
    I quickly realized how true that really is. Bob played his share of Rock and Roll, including a band that Leslie was in for a brief period called the Wild West Show. My brother remains very close to me in my heart and seeing Leslie is like spending 90 minutes with my brother again

    In closing, a great experience from a great performer
    and the best part of it all is:

    I GET TO SEE HIM AGAIN, TOMORROW AT THE COACH HOUSE TUESDAY AUGUST 13TH. I CANNOT WAIT...
