They opened the show with a smart remake of Alan Jackson's "Thank God For The Radio", followed by the smash hit "Blind Horses", which was the band's first chart-topping song in Europe. Right after a beautiful Garth Brooks ballad "The Cowboy Song" (with Slovak lyrics!) Peter & The Rowers introduced their original western-swing song "Which Way Do I Go". When the band remembered Johnny Cash with "Folsom Prison Blues" and they sang the final verse in Czech, they received a really cheerful response from the crowd. No Peter & The Rowers' show would be complete without their signature song, "I'm Leavin'", which spent incredible 14 consecutive weeks at the top of ECMA Top 100 Chart. A very impresive moment of the show came with an unusual performace of Daniels' classic "The Devil Went Down To Georgia", with amazing Frantisek Jano on fiddle. The show was closed with a remarkable rocking version of "Ghost Riders In The Sky" folowed by an encore "Rollin' My Sweet Baby's Arms".
No matter whether they sing in English, Slovak or Czech, the result is excellent hard-core country music that can be barely heard anywhere else. Attending a show of Peter & The Rowers is always an outstanding experience.
