His voice is on right now. On Saturday night he hit every note in #41, probably the best I've heard him hit them in the past few years. As others said he supposedly quit smoking before the European tour and over in Europe when he was playing with Tim he was really hitting a lot of the high stuff. He even sang I'll Back You Up and Little Thing over there hitting the high notes.
Being on tour in the US again will probably be tough for him to continue the no smoking but time will tell. His voice sounded good early on last year and went downhill during the second half of the tour. But right now it really sounds good, probably the best I've heard him sound since 2003ish.
