He just turned on the charisma, leaned on his equally mighty talent and songbook, and crooned from the piano bench. And that was more than enough for the fans who were lucky enough to score some of these precious ducats to Sunday’s two hastily scheduled, quickly sold-out solo shows (set for 7 and 10 p.m.).
