Mike Rosenberg doesnt need any session musicians, or backing track, he just uses his talent to entertainer the crowds. Ive seen Passenger a few times now and every time his show develops further and further. He's not just an excellent musician, but also a comedian, story teller and all round nice guy. A highlight was when Mike's guitar strings snapped on his final song, rather than call a halt to the proceedings he simply sang acapella while the crowd joined in as a backing track, chanting and clapping. Superb show.
