Welcome everyone to the 2017 Tour Review Thread! The upcoming year is going to be exciting with concerts scheduled already for 2017!! MB has some USA shows starting off the year in January and more shows through early April so far and I’m sure many more to come around the globe as the year unfolds! Also exciting for 2017 is the February 10th release of Songs of Cinema and I am betting a few more songs from the CD will make it in the tour setlist! Woo Hoo! This is the best time to be a fan with MB’s concerts and we may have a Michael Bolton Charities event later in the year, we never know. Michael has multiple projects in the works and he is good at keeping us guessing. I appreciate the opportunity to start a new thread once again for 2017 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.
Let the year long concert party begin and I wish concerts for all of you in 2017!! I know many fans are on other social media sites but I do hope we can continue with the exciting tour reviews here in 2017! You all make the thread fun.
Happy Concert Time again in 2017!!
EW!!!!!!!!! You too, Kathy having bronchitis. Yuck. I feel sorry for you. Hope you won't be uncomfortable this weekend. I can sympathize with you there. I'm glad I'm over that & the other illness too......See you Saturday.
So happy for you Kathy and Bob.. Good job Bob!!l So nice it all worked out in the end and I figured a VIP ticket would have a meet/greet attached to it! Best Valentine's Day ever I'm sure.
I can feel the excitement and energy in the building from your review. Thanks for coming in and post Kathy. Yes it has started out so far to be a fab 2017 for MB and the fans too. Sounds like MB was on fire and so was everyone int he audience in Hawaii! Too cool.
Thanks again Kathy Safe travels home for you and Bob.
Robin in MD :)
Thanks Robin....it was a definite Bolton Adventure and definitely a sweet gesture by Bob :) The Aloha spirit is a kick....slow motion...and everything is just fine...but...but....I have some questions...LOL I forgot to mention that yes we all did go to the stage for the last 2 songs after WAMLAW :) That was fun and got my handshake :)
Kathy and LAFD Bob
Hey Kathy, thanks again for your review! Well girl, I could think of worse ways to spend Valentine’s day, that’s for sure! :D Dear Kathy, I don’t know why, but your concerts always seem to turn into adventures, which might not be fun for you, but they are entertaining, to me anyway... :D I love how you describe the “Aloha spirit” people. Thanks for the setlist. So, was “Georgia” the encore? That’s interesting to hear a “not enough security” story. Well Kathy, it sounds like that Aloha spirit makes for very fun concerts, thanks so much for sharing, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
LOL Sylvie...I also am entertained by the adventures!! Never a dull moment I say!! Never ever discouraged...I just get busy!! And fast because you have to beat the clock!! That was funny though walking up on Bob and he is seated and the look on his face thinking I was missing somewhere!!! LOL...like he says...his life would be boring if not for me and my "adventures" ;) We definitely are planning a Canada trip too but it has to be in the warmer wether so I can visit the cemetery where some of my family is buried in Toronto. So I hope MB makes a spring/summer concert schedule in Canada :)
Kathy and LAFD Bob
Alrightie then, Katy LAFD that you held his hand during the show on Valentine's &, of course, the M&G. wow! Now. How cool is that? I'm slowly but surely catching up. I may not have an M&G & cool for those that do, but I treasure every second I get. Love it. He's such a babe. He's so kind, gentle & do I need to say any more? :)
Exactly Robin!! Handshakes are wonderful from Michael. We got ours in Costa Mesa and that was fun!! You have had lots of m&g's with MB :) Might not be called that but you go backstage etc!! You are a very special fan to Michael and he always tries to visit with you if he can!! He always chats with you whenever you and I are at a concert together and we are in front row!! Of course front row helps out a lot!! I have fun letting you know MB is coming your way and then the same with Jason also :) You have lots of Bolton Adventures just like a lot of us fans have!! We are old school !!! lol And here we go again on March 11th!! Btw...not great seats as I wasn't going but Bob insisted on checking online and HE bought a single seat for me in second row right side. I guess since he is retired he feels it is his duty to find me seats at every concert!! Lol...I told him I wasn't going because of the prison barricades they have at this venue. And now he bought a tix...soooo....I am going. Let's hope they have changed their layout but I doubt it!! See you soon Robin :)
I am finally starting to feel better after this wicked bout of bronchitis!!! Geez...what an ordeal. The bad cough...laryngitis...pink eye in both eyes....sore throat!!! No meds because it was viral and not bacterial.....ugh. Only had prescription cough medicine and I just took some after a coughing attack. This needs to stop!! And it will be GONE by March 11th ;)
Kathy and LAFD Bob
Well now Kathy & Bob, All I can say to this review is " Woot-Woot:)! You 2 really "GO the Distance" for Michael:)! That is AWESOME:)!
Thanks for sharing:)!
Mary (meg's mom)!
Hi Mary.....yes it appears that way doesn't it?? lol Actually we plan on traveling for the next 10 years and get all our trips completed while we can still move. Well....sort of move...but in 10 years I am not sure how I would feel about lots of travel. As I wrote earlier we are taking the advice of other retirees..travel now....don't wait!
Kathy and LAFD Bob
WOW! Reading these reviews is exciting me for my concert in 5 days here in Paducah, KY! I hope I get as lucky as yall for my first concert. Regardless I'm sure I'll have a great time! I'm excited beyond words. I don't think besides my parents and coworkers that nobody really knows what this means to me to be able to go. I've talked their head off for the past week doing a day by day countdown, getting my outfit ready, calling to get appointments for my hair to be done and eyebrows, buying boots! I'm soooo excited!!!! And to be up front, OMG! Yall will hear from me in a month LOL! My friend who is an officer in my town was like "Now Joy, you can't do anything to get in trouble. You'll be out of my jurisdiction and I can't bail you out." LOL! Of course he was playing! I can't wait!
The next show on MB's tour is at The Carson Center, Paducah, KY on Wednesday, February 22, 2017.
I wish Joy and everyone going a wonderful time. I know another BB that is going as well.
As always feel free to come in here and share the excitement of the concert with all of us.
Have fun everyone!! MB and the band will rock the house!!
