Neil Halstead and Tennis at eTown, 10/16/12

NEIL HALSTEAD / TENNIS @ eTown Hall | 10/16/12

For the end of the Tennis and Neil Halstead eTown show, host Nick Forster and co-host Helen Forster came on stage with both acts. Forster told us they had all learned a song that seemed appropriate for the occasion, and with Halstead on lead vocals and Alaina Moore and both Forsters on backing vocals, the temporary supergroup performed a fun yet faithful cover of "Just Like Heaven." It fit perfectly with the tenor of the whole show, with excellent performances all around and a lighthearted spirit among everyone on stage.
