Hi everyone, I thought it might be nice to have a thread for everyone to post their concert reviews in again like we've done in the past. It's such fun hearing about all the shows and everyone's experiences and see their photos. 

 

Anyone attending, please post your review.  Its exciting that Michael and his band are hitting the road again and traveling the world!

 

I hope you all don't mind I started this thread for concert reviews.  I'm looking forward to reading about everyone's experiences!

 

Thanks!!!

Tom in the early days Michael sang Wehn I'm Back on my feet again.

Didn't he do "it's too late?"

He did at the 3 concerts I went to.
Hey Robin,
Michael did not do "Its Too Late". We were very disappointed. This is my favorite song on the new album. We had gone to Biloxi and noticed a small difference in the show. Also we were not treated very well by security. Tunica is normally our favorite venue. We always ask (or inform) security about going to the front of the stage after WAMLAW. This year our GUARD informed us that we could by no means go to the front of the stage. He told us that Michael had requested that no one get near the stage. ODD to say the least. They were not even letting people come to the stage to take one picture. I asked him how long he had been working at his job. He said two years. I told him "I have been doing this for 16 years". My friend Carol told him I had seniority. He told us He had a badge. Needless to say we were not the first to go to the front. I saw Leesa G. there on the other side of the stage. I asked her if her GUARD had told her the same thing. She said yes. Well some did go to the front. Our security guard jumped out of his seat, started flaying his arm telling people to get back. He even leaned on the stage himself so that the other side of the stage could see him. Michael Bolton gave him the oddest look. Like "What's going on. Is something happening?" Then the security guard backed up and things were back to normal. Michael is very fit. He looked and sounded GREAT. We saw him at the elevator before the show and congratulated him and asked how his granddaughter was. He said Beautiful. He smiled that great smile and said "See you at the concert". Our trip was fun but not the same. Our normal companion, Cindy, was not with us. Her sister was hospitalized on Sunday before the concert so she decided not to go and then Wednesday her son was put in the hosp. for pneumonia so she was really glad she had changed her plans. We took Patsy as a special trip because she lost her husband in September. She absolutely loved it and got to touch Michael as he walked back to the stage after WAMLAW. Lynn was there so I know she will give a much better review as will Leesa.
I think we are through for this year and most of next year. Will be watching everyone's reviews. So keep up coming.

How strange that the security were acting in this manner?

Hmm, I wonder if they've had a problem recently wit hfans 'storming the stage and tryign to climb onto it?

Michael expects us all to go to the stage after WAMLAW and so for there to be no fans or only a handful of fans there must have been a bit daunting for him. I'm glad it was sorted out in the end though.

It's funny how the venues always say 'no photography' and yet, Michael seems to encourage it. Indeed last year, he came over to our side of the stage and actually stopped and posed for us!!

I do understand that some venues say no photographs due to the risk of the star being flash blinded, but we always use the no flash setting on our cameras and would always encourage others to do the same when they are near the stage.

I'm sorry to hear that your friend Cindy is having some family problems right now and hope that you will pass on my best wishes to her for family. And how lovely that your friend Patsy got to touch Michael. I hope she hasnt washed that hand yet!! Ha Ha!!

Great review Alison, thank you for taking the time to tell us and for sharing.

Love Jennifer XX
Thanks Alison, Sounds like overall you had a great time despite HITL not being in the set list for some reason, rats!! OMG that security thing was odd. Glad once MB gave them a look they backed off. I wonder if MB's people get a chance to tell the venue security it's ok and MB allows the people to go up? Nice you got to ask how his granddaughter was.. AWWW I bet he's so proud!!! Sorry to hear your friend wasn't with you this trip.

Thanks for your great review Alison!! I enjoy reading all of them!!

HI all, the tour continues to night and will be at the Riverside Resort Hotel & Casino, Laughlin, NV

We've heard from Kathy in CA that she will be attending and if anyone else here is going, please share your reviews! Looking forward to reading them. Thanks!!

Robin in MD:)
I know. I wanna go. Can I cry? I mean. Oh! well! I'm glad for Kathy&for those who went last night. I wonder how I missed it. I was in Vegas&tthere was no advertisement. Was it a secret or something? Shucks. Another place. Another time. :)

Can someone get me a car? :)
Alison thanks for the review sounds like you needed to have a bit of fun and I'm glad you ended up having it although I feel it could have been a lot better for you.I hope Cindy's sister and her son are feeling better real soon.

Nice to hear that Michael was in great shape and form shame HITL wasn't sung that is my favorite as well :)

Personally I think some of these "Security Guards" go to the extreme because "they have a badge" LOL
but maybe he's seen some wild things in the past and wanted to be able to control everything he has obsiously never done a MB concert before otherwise he would have known what was going to happen :)

Thanks again
Love Dianna xxx
Alison. Thanks for your review. Loved it as usual. Wow you got to speak with Michael. Though I held his hand&I'm greatful but my changes of ever speaking with him....well, next to nun, no doubt but I'm glad for all of you.

I'm sorry about your friends&their trying time. May God be with them.

Robin the boltonnut from L. A. CA

Sorry folks putting in sort of Christianity there. Some folks get offended--it doesn't seem to out her. :)
Robin,
I do not know what the rules of the forum are but you will NEVER offend me by asking God to be with me, because He is. Even at Michael Bolton concerts. Sometimes I do have to ask forgiveness though-Ha. God has a sense of humor also. You will be able to speak to Michael one day. That is why we love Tunica. It is small and normally we see him somewhere around the casino. I do always give Michael space. I do not run up to him. This time I did wave rather vigorously down the hall on the way to the elevator. My friends and I make such wonderful memories when we travel to see Michael. That is so important. I work at a nursing home and at the end of this wonderful life, sometimes the memories and mementos and pictures really help in the aging process. My girls have promised me that when I need the nursing home that all of my Michael pictures, scrapbooks and CD's will go with me. Wonder what they will be recording on then? I am getting off track. Enjoyed our talk.
Alison
I guess I'm just feeling sorry for myself today as I could have gone last night had i known. Most of tnhe time, I go to concerts alone so, don't have those opportunities to accidentally meet up with him like y'all have but truthfully, I'm greatful for the times I do get. There are some fans who haven't had these opportunities so, pardon the pity party. I've gone to shows with people&have had awesome opportunities--those accidental ones. I love your reviews&messages.

When Michael was in Cerritos, the crowd was boring. God forbid one to get excited&they frowned upon one going up to the stage but some of us did&they couldn't stop us but Henderson, that was an awesome concert&so was the one in Ivins Utah. :)
Hi, Alison
Thank you for sharing us your review, I love it, in spite of
he didn't HITL Cindy problems, and security behaviour, I think like
Jennifer said something happened, I remember he
said in a interview in China, that once he found 4 girls in his room, or
some like this, I suppose he doesn't want other surprise
.
Take care
Mariu
