Default Jon's last good (decent) show vocally?

Which one would you say it was? I can't decide, it was years ago obviously, but can't pick any particular one.

Likely a show from the 2011 European Tour.

He had a few good shows in 2012. A few of the warm up shows for What About Now in 2013 were good too. I'm sure there were a couple of good shows during the early part of the 2013 tour. I know there is a version of Always, from Nashville, I think, in 2013 that was brilliant.

I don’t know, to my ears he still sounded perfectly serviceable in at least June/early July 2013. Obviously tastes differ, but IMO he was ”decent” for a lot longer than many seem to think.

I vote for Mohegan Sun 2013-10-25. This was a make-up show because in Feb of 2013, the Mohegan Sun show was snowed out. I expected nothing at all from this show and we got a good, solid enjoyable show.

Slightly off-topic - I went back yesterday and listened to the acoustic show Jon did for Kenneth Cole during the THINFS recording. I remember us all being shocked at how bad his voice was and much he struggled...but if you go back and listen he sounds far, far better than he does now! It's night and day

JBJ was in good form in Philadelphia as well, a couple of weeks later:

I would vote for this one. Here he still sounded okay. In my opinion his voice was here much better than in 2015

I probably would've said that one as well, I thought that show was quite enjoyable.

He seems to have fun and letting go. It will probably be the last show with decent vocals.
