Welcome everyone to the 2013 Tour Review Thread!!!!!!!  It is hard to believe another year is soon upon all of us and it should be a fantastic Michael Bolton year full of fun and adventures for Michael's fans around the world!

Feel free to post  your stories and pictures, any videos from concerts and trips to see Michael do what he does best-SING!!!   Michael will be touring in 2013 starting in Jamaica in January.  There could be other events  too so if anyone attends a great Bolton event/concert come on in and share your experience here. We also have shows scheduled in the USA for February and one is on MB’s birthday which will be extra special!! This should be a very exciting year for all of us with MB’s new book coming out as well as a new CD and possibly his TV show starting later in the year too? We never know with MB as he’s got so many things going on at once!!LOL   We can report here if there are any book signings as well if you all want to. Also, later in the year the Michael Bolton Charities will schedule their events to raise funds for the MBC.

I am looking forward to another fun year of posts and sharing great times by the best Michael Bolton fans in the world on this forum. I will post events to keep the thread moving along as the concerts come up as I have in the past. 


Again welcome everyone!!!!!

Hi Kathy,

Yes, I will be watching on TV and recording! Can't wait to see him. 

And better everyone on the East Coast stays home Friday night to be safe.

We could get up to 2 feet of snow! I hope not, but we can take it. 

As long as it's not 2 feet of flood water NJ will handle it!



Now......back to the mundane ........LOL

Here is an article I have picked up about Michael's show in Ridgefield, CT on 14th February and there is a little question and answers section.............

    On Thurs., Feb. 14, Michael Bolton will take the stage  at the Ridgefield Playhouse for the theaterís Valentineís Day Champagne Gala  Fundraiser. The festivities kick off at 6:30 p.m. and Bolton will perform at  8:30 p.m. Photo: Contributed Photo



For someone known for serious, soulful crooning, Michael  Bolton is surprisingly funny.

The singer has sold more than 53 million albums and has dominated the  airwaves with such hits as "That's What  Love is All About," "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You" and "When a Man  Loves a Woman." In addition he's not afraid to flex his vocal muscles for a  comedic cause.

In 2011 he joined forces with the comedy group Lonely Island (Akiva Schaffer, Jorma  Taccone and Andy  Samberg) to create a music video for "Saturday Night Live." In the video  Bolton sings an overly dramatic ballad about the fictional Captain Jack  Sparrow, the hero from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies.

The short was well received and has since garnered more than 99 million views  on YouTube. Bolton followed that up with a tongue-in-cheek video add for Tidy  Cat's new brand of natural cat litter Pure Nature.

But Bolton has not let his funny bone distract from his music career and on  Tuesday, Feb. 26, he'll release a new album, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough -- A  Tribute to Hitsville U.S.A." In January, he also released his autobiography,  "The Soul Of It All: My Music My Life."

On Thursday, Feb. 14, Bolton will take the stage at the  Ridgefield Playhouse for the theater's Valentine's Day Champagne Gala  Fundraiser. The festivities, which include dinner and a raffle, kick off at 6:30  p.m. and Bolton is scheduled to perform at 8:30.

In anticipation of the show, we caught up with Bolton, who was born in New  Haven and lives in Westport.

Q: What is your song-writing process like?

A: That can be hard to describe. It's an evolutionary process. It can start  with a melody, a lyric or even a conversation. I love writing with young artists  and up-and-coming producers. They bring so much excitement and energy to the  process, and I've been lucky enough to be in the studio with Ne-Yo and Lady Gaga  recently.

Q: You were born in Connecticut and still live in the state, what keeps you  here?

A: I wanted to raise my family away from all the scrutiny of Hollywood and  New York. Connecticut is such a beautiful state. It's very peaceful here.

Q: Early in your career you played in the heavy metal band Blackjack, but  obviously your solo career has taken a different turn. How did this transition  in style come about?

A: I wasn't making money with some of that early rock and metal music. But I  started to have my songs recorded by other artists. It wasn't until a label exec  told me to stop giving my songs to other people to make famous that I  transitioned to the sound that people came to know me by. I've always loved  R&B music. With this new album "Ain't No Mountain High Enough -- A Tribute  To Hitsville USA," I'm paying tribute to the kind of music that I grew up  listening to.

Q: What first led to your interest in music?

A: Well, let's see ... I was really bad at everything else. All kidding  aside, I was drawn to music and what it could do for your soul. It all just felt  natural to me. And I am so grateful that I have had a long career in the  business. It's been very rewarding.

Q: How were you approached to do the "SNL" pirate skit?

A: I had been introduced to the Lonely Island guys a few years back and we  always talked about doing something together. They had sent ideas, but the  timing never felt right. So when they brought this idea of Jack Sparrow, I  couldn't resist it. It was brilliant, and those are some of the hardest working  young men in show business. They're hilarious and brilliant. I was really  nervous about it because we really didn't know how it would fly. It wasn't until  Sunday morning after the show aired that we realized something had really  connected with people. It was a blast and one of the most memorable experiences  in my career. I'd do it again.

The Ridgefield Playhouse, 80 E. Ridge, Ridgefield. Thursday, Feb. 14, 8:30  p.m. $130 or $185 for the meet and greet. 203-438-5795, www.ridgefieldplayhouse.org.
