Welcome everyone to the 2014 Tour Review Thread.  The upcoming year is going to be exciting with so many concerts scheduled already around the globe!!! Feel free to share the details of your concert adventures, photos, videos etc.  This is the best time to be a Bolton fan with so many concerts and the MBC Charity Event which will most likely be held later in the year too. Michael has multiple projects in the works so we never know what will happen next!!!! I appreciate the opportunity to start a new thread once again for 2014 to give us all a place to share the best part of being a fan--- experiencing Michael in person doing what he does best-SING!!!!!! 

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. 

Happy Concert Time in 2014 to all of you!!!

Hey Kathy, I'll be looking for some great reviews from you:)!

Kathy and LAFD Bob
Thanks for posting all tho i don't record at any of the concerts
At one time I did it was for home ...but, I could not record worth a dime..
Lol....so I didnt continue as I do recall something being said awhile back
About recording so I just take pics at the concerts.....I Know there will people who
Will be disappointed....but.....it's his life and believe since thats the way he wants it
People need to be respectful of his ....reasons .....and it's none of our business
Really.....why......I would hope that as his fans we could be more respectful .... To his
Wishes ......thanks again for posting

,Sorry but I have got to come back in here and state again that I believe it is one of the worst public relations decisions Michael has made.  The only way the majority of us outside of the States get to see and hear Michael, in concert, is by the videos that people post on YouTube as we are not afforded the same amount of concerts as those in the USA are.   Michael hasn't toured in the UK since 2010 so if  no videos had been available since then we would not have seen, or heard, him in concert for 4 years.   Also too Michael states about wanting to encourage the younger audience and the younger follower well how does he perceive he can do that by withdrawing a form of media the young thrive on considering now there are hardly any record/cd stores where you can walk in and browse and spot an album by Michael Bolton.   Possibly if Michael has it mind to bring out about three or four DVD's a year of some of his concerts, as other musicians do, then fair enough I would go along with his decision wholeheartedly but as it is since 2010 that such a DVD has been released and how long prior to that, I don't see things changing in the near future in that regard.

I just feel quite let down because Michael says he cares about his fans well, in turn, we care about him and we love to see him and hear him and whether the quality of that video we see him in falls far, far short of any state of perfection is irrelevant because in our eyes just to be able to see and hear him is wonderful.  Michael once said about having a full set of Caruso's albums and how wonderful it was to be able to listen to them and hear his voice well, if that full set is of the original, I too have heard those original recordings and they are, as can be well imagined, far, far from perfect but does their imperfection destroy the quality and genius of that man and the beautifulness of the voice of such a maestro...no, it does not so, does a simple video, shot by a complete amateur, detract from the wonderful performances that Michael gives on stage ...no, it does not but what it does give, as with Caruso's albums, a chance for those who cannot go to concerts the opportunity to see and hear him.   In saying that I wonder how many people do not get to see Michael in concert simply because:   he never travels to their part of the world;  they cannot afford to travel to nearest place where there is a show;   they cannot afford tickets even if on their doorstep;   they cannot leave their home because of ill health but they may have access to the internet and are able to enjoy his shows through those videos posted but now are going to be denied that .... could be drawn into question how deep his care actually goes !!!  What I believe Michael is doing is taking a retrograde step and he is creating, or going back, to a time prior to internet and no one has yet, successfully, gone back in time. 

As I said in previous post, as I have written above, it is JMO and I hope, with being in a democracy, I am allowed to state it !!!  Also too, I should add, that if Michael were standing in front of me I would be saying exactly the same things to him....I  am not saying anything I wouldn't say to the man's face !!!

Sylvia.   Your wee Scottish friend.


And I am completely Sylvias opinion! Thanks Sylvia for the honest words!!!

I wanted to stay neutral and let things flow but ... I'll be concise and just say "yes", I agree with Sylvia. Kind regards - Nic

Thanks for sharing Sylvia.. It's a shame for the fans- for some reason MB's changed his policy. Maybe someone with VIP
 tickets in the UK will ask him. Just wondered and maybe we will hear his reasoning in time.

I know I treasure videos from 2012 that were found on Youtube from a concert that shows us at the stage and has our dear friend Debbie included with us at the stage dancing and having such fun. She's passed on now as she lost her struggle with cancer and those are very special vidoes I have saved.  It's a shame like I said. :(

I respect the decision that's made but bummed at the same time as a fan that's enjoyed the videos over the years that fans have gotten and shared. Just my two cents. I see both sides.  I'm not taking sides here either.

Sylvia, thanks for your heart felt opinion.  I do understand where you are coming from as a devoted and loyal fan of MB's.  However, not everyone that goes to a concert shares this attitude.  It is my belief that Michael is devoted and loves his fans.  He is also businessman and very good at it.  His business is more than lyrics, singing and showmanship.  MB's image in the musical arena and publicly has to be protected in order for him to be successful.  I think that there are some issues that we are not aware of that have caused this.  It is my opinion that we, as fans, should trust Michael to take care of business.  



Thank you Deborah for your senseful comment......I believe it doesn't make sense to keep following this discussion! accept it or forget it !!   

Cheers, C*

Hopefully this thread can get back on track with some concert reviews soon.  Kathy R will be back soon with hers from her last two concerts.. I hope to hear from Robin Rehder too..

Looking forward to some fun posts ladies!!!LOL

Robin in MD:)

hopefully !
