Here's an interview with Peter that appeared in the November/December 2010 issue of Shindig! For easier reading, click on each image and then click on it again.
This photo is courtesy of Cynthia Perkins. She noted that "Lady Madonna" was not performed in Buffalo, New York despite it being on the setlist. It looks like Peter is switching up his set during these early shows on the 'In This Generation' tour.
Just a note...the setlist posted yesterday for the first show at the Iridium in New York did not include "Take a Giant Step," which was performed in Buffalo. It's the first video below, along with "Cripple Creek" and "Shades of Gray."

Here's Richard's report of the show:
The concert started with a silent film of a very young Peter. Four Monkees songs were played during the film: "When Love Comes Knockin'," "I Don't Think You Know Me," "I Can't Get Her Off My Mind" and "The Kind of Girl I Could Love." Also featured was the opening credits of the movie "Easy Rider" where onstage he played the song he submitted for the film. He played mostly acoustic guitar during the performance, and the banjo on "Cripple Creek" and piano on "Shades of Gray."
Here's another review that was posted on the Steve Hoffman Music Forums by user JuanTCB:
Caught the matinee Tork gig at Iridium this afternoon and I couldn't be more impressed. It was just Peter on mainly guitar (with a bit of banjo and piano), basically detailing his musical influences/experiences from childhood up through the end of the '60s (including his rejected "Easy Rider" theme which was very cool to finally hear). He looked great, played fantastically, was surprisingly strong of voice, and was funny as hell. And really gracious while signing and posing for pics afterwards, too. The whole gig had a very mellow, engaging, coffee-house kind of vibe. Peter & Andrew Sandoval put together a really cool little show - if you're on the fence about checking it out, go without reservation!

Thanks to Al Bigley for the submission. I'm still looking for a complete setlist!

I'm looking for a full report and setlist from Peter's first 'In This Generation' show in Buffalo, New York on Friday. If you attended the show or have more information, please leave a comment or contact me here.
I have seen a few (incomplete) setlists floating around, but I'd like to wait and post something that is confirmed and complete.
For those in New York City or the surrounding areas, Peter will be performing at the Iridium twice today (Sunday, May 5) and once tomorrow. You can purchase tickets here.
