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!!!!!

E' sempre bello vedere Michael premiato per quello che fa a livello umanitario, oltre ad essere un bravissimo cantante!!!!!

Hello guys! I have a general question... not sure where to post this, but I think this is the closest-related place. :s

Where do you follow to find out where Michael will be showing up for any events, locations, etc.? Is there a particular thread or place where this info is updated? If possible, I'm hoping to go to any event he will show up at in the future, whenever he's known to come to Southern California again..!

Fiona here is the link into the thread where Gail places information about Michael's concerts and you can also see information about them all in the "Tour" section on main heading and they also show up down left hand side of main page where the blogs are.

oh thank you Sylvia!

I don't think anyone would object on what's put out here as it's been said this is one of the most popular threads so, bring it all on. :)

Hi!!! Could someone transcript the speech???? Thanks!!!!

Will do Pilar !!! :)

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Transcript of Michael's speech for whoever wants............

At the beginning Michael talks/jokes about the fact that whilst he was singing earlier the PA system blew and it has been reported by a few on Twitter that Michael, being the true professional he is, never batted an eyelid and continued singing as though nothing had happened and this is where we start on Michael's speech.......


"Well, who says you need a full PA system to get through a song ?"    Michael laughs, turns and then says:  "CJ thank you so much, wow!"    CJ is CJ Vanston and obviously someone very much to do with the sound system at the event.


Actual speech........


"So a few things;  first, I would just like to say, the evolution of mankind shines a very certain and very specific light upon our future and there is no mistaking it, gender equality is the only acceptable future, for our world.

I am very, very deeply honoured, humbled and grateful to receive this Award.   If I share a sense of pride it is in sharing this Award with the amazing recipients, this evening, as well as the people who are the unsung heroes, who are the volunteers and the social workers and the people who show up and make these events happen and they don't necessarily get the accolades;  they don't get the photographs on the covers of magazines but nothing happens without them and I am surrounded by so many great people with my Organization, I need to share this completely, with them. 

I would like to say that I promise to renew my commitment on the issues of gender equality; to the end of violence against women; to the end of sex trafficking, of all human trafficking; to the final end of slavery, in our world, in our lifetime.

I would like to thank Muhammad Ali and his amazing wife, Lonnie, for founding the Centre.   The Muhammad Ali Centre's mission is to preserve and share the legacy and ideals of Muhammad Ali;  to promote respect, hope and understanding and to inspire adults and children everywhere, to be as great, as they can be:  I congratulate you, all of you, at the Centre because this is exactly, what you do.

Muhammad Ali, you have been my favourite champion since I was about ten years old.  Your unparalleled victories in the ring can only be transcended by your tremendous achievements outside of the ring as, the heavyweight champion, of the human spirit.  Besides placing you on the right side of history, watching the HBO film reminded me how, as much as we have always enjoyed seeing you, looked forward to hearing you, your voice, and yes, you were always very, very pretty, but what the film reveals, so clearly, beyond your wit and your charm, is your amazing courage, your deep wisdom and your compassion.  Somehow as implausible as it may seem the Greatest, has become, even greater!

Thank you so much, from the depths of my heart; thank you, thank you!"

Awesome Fiona being in SoCal. MB was here @ the City National Grove in Orange County 8/15/13. I don't think past events are shown but just thought I'd inform you. Love seeing your poss.A

Yeah, I saw that he was just here a few weeks ago! I really missed out so badly... because I only live 20 minutes from Anaheim. :( Hope he comes back next year- 


You never know Fiona. Perhaps we could meet @ one of his future shows out here. :)

Thanks Sylvia,

   You are a great Wee reporter:! And that Speech was very moving! He really put his Heart into that Speech:)! Oh, to be a fly on the wall!!! Maybe the next time around:)!

Mary (meg's mom)!
