Concert Review: Gold City – March 11, 2010

March 13, 2010 By: Aaron Category: SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music

Thursday night, March 11, I headed over to Halesford Baptist Church in Wirtz, VA for a Gold City concert. The last time I’d seen a Gold City concert (not counting NQC), they still had Jonathan Wilburn, Steve Ladd, Aaron McCune, and Josh Simpson with them. This particular concert was being promoted as early as the end of 2009, but my interest increased after the changes in the lineup. I was looking forward to hearing the “reloaded” lineup of Gold City, having heard various Youtube clips and being impressed with what I heard.

At the risk of sounding like a crazed fan, this group blew me away! Hearing them online does not even come close to how good they are live. This lineup has gelled very well, and I, along with my co-blogger Jeremy Bell, my mom, and SouthernGospelForums.com friend Ruth Voorhees, had a blast on the front row! Song list included:

I Cast My Bread Upon The Water
When I Get Carried Away
He’ll Do It Every Time
I’m Saved, I’m Sure I’m Ready

What Children Believe
After A While
I think Tim Riley must have liked my reactions to him going for low notes; he kept looking at me the whole concert whenever he would do so!
Rainbow Of Love
Roy Webb Piano Solo (Just A Little Talk With Jesus)
One Scarred Hand
This song was done a capella with no microphones. The acoustics in the church worked very well for this; check out Jeremy’s post about the evening for videos of this song and others from the night.
Josh Cobb Solo (Satisfied)I think Josh may have gone into David Phelps territory on the final note of this song. This is a great showcase of how he has developed as a vocalist since his Legacy Five days.
Where Is God
I’m Not Giving Up
I Love This Land
*INTERMISSION*

Look Who Just Checked In
It’s Still The Cross
Under Control
I’m Rich
Midnight Cry

It was a great night of music, and a good time was had by all in attendance. I enjoyed catching up with Roy Webb afterwards, and it was a pleasure meeting Josh Cobb, both of whom read this blog. If this group is in your area, I’d encourage you to go see them. You will be blessed!
