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!!!

Live By Request was done for TV and I have it recorded on VHS from back then. It was done at Sony Studios in NYC. I was one of the callers, I asked for Ain't Got Nothin If You Ain't Got Love. Was fun since I wasn't able to attend through the fan club at the time. They had a contest for fan club members to be in the audience. I was able to call in and talk to MB and be a part of it by calling in.
No that one never came out officially like Sylvie said darn it! LOL

Hi Robin, at least someone who had an active role in the making of MB's Live by Request ... great that the fan club members were involved. How was your chat with Michael? Did he sing the song you requested? B
Hi Barbara, Yes it did, it's all pre-planned. I called in hours ahead to request a song and got to pic one they had rehearsed and one I knew the band knew from going to concerts. MB and the band knew what songs were coming and in what order before it went Live on TV. Yes they had a drawing for fan club members to be in the audience and since I didn't get chosen I tried to call and got lucky. They coach you on how to talk w/o talking over MB and that and I was able to talk a few minutes and then request my song. VCR recording the entire time of course!! I had to watch it after so not to talk over him. Just listen on the phone. One of my friends there yelled out Hello Robin and MB said I had fans there!!LOL It was a fun experience talking to him that time and getting the song on there, it's a rockin number and was a great one for that show. I miss it as he's not done it in a very long time in concert. He cannot do them all I know, he has to rotate things in and out of the set list as time goes on but he will always keep most of the major hits in there.
Thanks for asking!

Thanks for your report, Robin. Maybe being on the phone with Michael has even been better than being in the audience ... B

Hi Gail and so far Michael has done "Steel Bars" at Cardiff, Wolverhampton and Bristol that I can vouch for and as I said in Bristol he included Soul Provider in the encore.
