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!!
Yes. I remember what he said in forth Worth Texas 9/11/01. Wow! He's just that way & can express himself well, no doubt.

Hi Margaret and thanks for your wonderful review! To answer your question, maybe your privileges are few and far-between AND Michael does get better. :D Meeting people/fans old and new really is part of the fun. Wow, what a way to start a concert: Michael is the best! Thanks for the close to complete setlist Margaret, I appreciate it. Your concert sounded absolutely wonderful, both on and off-stage, thanks so much for such a terrific description! Take good care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Oh, Margaret, Thanks for an awesome review. I felt like I was there. You did right well with the setlist but don't worry. Wow! is all I can say.
OH Margaret, I've just popped in here to post a link to an article on the Festival and found your absolutely WONDERFUL review.... thanks so, so much for it, thank you !!! :) I haven't even started to get my head round one yet as doing far tooo much catching up especially on sleep..... yeah, I did a Bolton this morning and forget "crack of noon" I was way PAST that !!!!!! LOL Thanks again Margaret and so, so glad you had a super time and the whole atmosphere was electric, wasn't it and especially with the joining in and singing .... that was the loudest I've heard and I am certain on HAISTLWY thought I saw Michael signal to Sam and they kept those microphones on the audience longer than usual because they did not sing as much of a duet on that as is norm, for that audience just took over. Believe because (well, majority of folk had had a "wee" tipple) and the atmosphere was just so relaxed, rather than in a theatre, that everyone WENT for it and boy, did it work out ..... I can still hear it, deafening !!!!! lol
On set list one missed, "I Got A Woman" but I believe you have got them all. One other little bit that I thought was fantastic and showed exactly how much the band had enjoyed themselves was when Michael was making the introductions and for the first time ever, that I have seen, when Michael mentioned Brian he jumped up off his stool and waved to the audience and was smiling away.....oh, I just loved that moment, pure magic !!! :) Think I'm starting to write a review here !!!! LOL Will say that know band did have fantastic time and loved everything was because got opportunity to speak to Jason, Ashley, Ryan and Drew and they had a blast and will elaborate a bit more in review which I will get my head round soon but thanks Margaret for definitely my task, in writing a review, is a lot, lot easier .... I'll just keep referring back to yours !!! lol
It was so, so lovely to meet you again and here is hoping we will meet up somewhere, sometime in 2018 during Michael's next UK tour and have a good old chinwag instead of a chat over a picket fence !!! LOL
Take care Margaret and thanks again for super, super review !!! :)
Sylvia Your wee Scottish friend
Now there is an idea, Michael being a seaside attraction for I live in a seaside town..... get the boy to Largs in Scotland !!!! LOL
Sylvia Your wee Scottish friend
Ooooohhhhh yes!! Largs would be FINE!!!
Hi Margaret....what a heartfelt review!!! LOVED it!! You sound like me with the quick scan of the front stage area!! That is EXACTLY the first thing I do at my MB concerts!! Sounds like you had a wonderful time!! So happy you shared your wonderful concert experience with us!! Have fun at your next MB concert!!!
Fantastic review Margaret, it was lovely to meet you at Upton House.I think it's wonderful how so many people get to meet up because of MB's music, and like you say hopefully may see you at a venue next year.Have a review to do also, just been getting over the journey back up north 350 miles.....
