The North Star holds a couple hundred people, and it was packed. Arthur took the stage at about 9:30 and they finished at just after 11:00.
The set list was similar to the NY show, with a few omissions. A guy there said the NY show was about 25 minutes longer, but I can hardly blame Arthur for not wanting to continue: there was no air conditioning to speak of, and the place must have been 100-110 degrees F (about 38-40 degrees C). By the time they stopped, his shirt was soaked with sweat. It was a great show, and he was very congenial.
I read about the video taping incident in NY, and interestingly a young woman was filming this show as well. The only difference is that at one point he went over and kissed her while she was filming!
