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!!
Thanks Robin Md....this had to be one of the hottest concerts ever! Although one concert with Wynona was dang hot as it was down in a bowl like arena and we were all melting. I don't like to perspire at a concert!!! lol Glad you enjoyed my review :)

Hey Kathy, thanks for your wonderful review as always. I’m glad to hear your extra ticket went to good use. Your vintage drunken woman story sounds like one for the old scrapbook... I’ve wondered myself how many concerts our Robin R has been to. Aww, you gotta love Michael, how sweet! I know she won’t see it, but I hope it’s possible for Robin to get that video from Stacey... Thanks again for your wonderful description Kathy: they’re always a lot of fun to read and you really take us with you. :D Take goodcare sweetie. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Hi Sylvie....thanks for your kind words on my review :) I so wish MB would spend more time closer to your area so you could enjoy more concerts!! You are such a dedicated fan and I actually do think of you when I write my reviews!! If i only had powers to beam MB your way I would do it in a heartbeat!! Let's put out a HUGE request and see of Michael can appear closer to cities in Quebec!! I am on a mission and one day will get to Toronto and Quebec for special reasons :) It would be great to catch a concert while there!! Positive thinking and hopefully and the end of summer or early fall next year would be nice...lol There is always hope that is for sure :)

Hi again Kathy, you’re very welcome. Well I know that it’s supply and demand: if Montreal fans knew whom to harass to get a concert, maybe we’d get more! XD That’s very sweet of you thinking of me when you write: I truly appreciate it. :D I do know you have a personal mission and do hope and wish it happens, sooner than later. Girl, better wish it for the beginning of fall, because it can get pretty sticky around here: I know you’re used to hot weather, but the humidity here can be brutal. From your keyboard to the powers that be’s ears! :D Thanks again Kathy, take good care and God bless. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada <3

OH Kathy thanks a million for a super duper review and after seeing all the short vids and reading your tale I sure do feel as though was there but one thing for sure I'm awfully glad cannot feel that heat....OMG I would have been a puddle !!! LOL No wonder, at 104, Michael was even breaking out in a sweat !! lol So lovely to hear about your kiss Robin and at least helps to understand what you can see on the video for I was sure he was proposing to Ann the way he got down, almost, on one knee and know Ann is short but couldn't understand how it was taking, an old professional like Michael, so long picking up a gift .... thought maybe she didn't want to let it go !!! LOL Absolutely super Robin and although can't really see you it is great to know exactly what Michael was doing and that you not only got to hold his hand but got a kiss .... what a beautiful, beautiful memory and what a lovely thing for him to do when he knows and understands that the sense of touch is so important to you....yeah a really lovely thing for him to do and so happy for you Robin !!! :)
Thanks again Kathy and here's to us all, who have shows coming up and those who are waiting patiently to find out when their next one might be, having absolutely wonderful Bolton Adventures which create, for us all, in their own very special ways, wonderful, wonderful memories.

Oh Sylvia, that was such a wonderful description of the video, you got me teary-eyed... I don't know what else to say but thank you! Take care. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Thanks Sylvie and wasn't really much of a description and will add that the video was actually taken at the back of audience and therefore you are looking over the heads of the people down toward the stage and that is how you can't see the heads of those right at front of stage and it is only when, because they are all dancing, that people move and you can see between them and that was how I spotted Kathy and then realised beside her was Ann. Just to say that Michael, just before he bends down has walked along stage, stopped and sung and then has turned to make his way back to centre stage but just as he passes Robin he stops and takes couple of steps back and bends down to her. It is as though he suddenly remembered where he had seen her when he had gone along shaking hands initially and was determined he was going to take her hand.
Here is the Instagram link into the video and it all happens just after Michael has sang "how can we be friends" and the instrumental part comes in and it is just then he turns to make way back to centre stage but stops for "interlude"

Hi again Sylvia, well first, thanks very much for the added details and the memories that they brought back to me. Second, thanks very much for the link I'll send directly to Robin, in case she wants to show it off. :D Thanks again very much Sylvia, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Thanks so much Sylvia for describing in detail the infamous hand kiss!! lol There are 2 vids out there Sylvie that show our special moments at the concert and of course I have no idea how to attach a link to a vid BUT Sylvia sure does!!! I think Robin may have listened to the vid already but now she knows exactly which one contains "The Kiss" ;) Hopefully one day soon Sylvie someone captures your special moment with MB at a concert!!!!!
