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!!
Katrin & Astrid. Thanks for coming out here & reviews. Love them. Astrid, come out when you can with your review. Can't wait to read it. Neat about thevideo that you guys were in presenting Michael with gifts.
That's what I wanted to say tht it was neat that gentleman reimbursed some of that money.
Das würde mich freuen.
From what price to what price do these M&G passes cost? Perhaps they're not here in the U. S. A. Oh! well! I'm grateful for what I've had. Though I'm seeing MB in Vegas. I'm totally stoked but I expect nothing to happen; not even to hold his hand but I know I'll enjoy the show.
Hey Robin R, I think you need to ask Andrena from MBC about M&Gs. Break a leg girl, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
If you are referring to mine Robin I bought it under the same terms as Pledge Music were offering because when the Pledge Music page closed there were still M&G's available to buy. It was agreed through Michael and his management and I paid it directly to MBC. MBC did not give out the M&G. Pledge Music asked for approximately £900 for two M&G's which for one came to £450 which also included a guaranteed seat in first few rows but when I bought mine as I had already purchased the dearest seats that cost was taken off the actual price for the M&G and I, in fact, paid £250 for each M&G I bought. Hope that explains it a bit better for you Robin for it is not suddenly M&G's MBC are selling and just making it clear, exactly how I got mine..... bought as a treat to myself with good money saved and well worth every penny !!! :)

Hi Robin, VIP experiences at Pledge were $1500.00 for two people but that's closed now. It was worth every dollar I spent last year to celebrate 150 shows in my home state an hour from my house with my long time best Bolton Buddy. MB made it wonderful. Never forget it that's for sure. LOL I have done some through the Michael Bolton Charities and I decided what to donate and it was OK with Andrena. I made several donations over the years, once with a friend and then was able to take Jeff backstage at a show last summer where it worked out to do it also after a few shows where it didn't but the 3rd time was the winner! LOL. Some of them I've not paid for over the years. I have one coming up in December as part of a ticket package in York, PA. That wasn't too bad, $80.00 membership and seats $88.00. Over the years each experience has been different. All have been wonderful! LOL I do miss the contests they had with the Gold Club back in the day, a friend and I got to see him one time that way too. And sometimes there are online auctions for the VIP meet/greet chances, I've not participated in any of those for concert meet greets and those vary in cost depending on how high the bidders go! LOL That's been what I know about what they cost with my own experiences over the years. Long story short-it varies! LOL
I am excited for you to go to Vegas for the show there. I am betting he holds your hand Robin. :) Fingers crossed for you.
Robin in MD :)
Thanks everyone. I appreciate all suggestions, explainations & the like.
Thanks for detailed description of everything concerning M&G's Robin and especially letting us know, when it has always been said that M&G's from MBC were SO, SO expensive to buy and yet you got naming your own price......that's an eyeopener and wonder where the misinformation came from about price ???

It would be so sweet if MB and his peeps could arrange to always have VIP m&g tickets for at least half of his shows and have a portion go directly to MBC!! I believe I can say that every fan would agree with me :) I understand that MB has many fewer concerts overseas in many countries so it makes sense that he started his M&G tickets in those locales. The U.S. had loads of concerts so I am thinking that if perhaps half offered M&G as a way to expand donations to MBC then it is a win/win for MB and us fans!! Can I get a cheer??? lol Most of us long time fans have had all variety of chats with MB and they are always so fun. It is a matter of odds....the more you do something....attending lots of concerts and/or MB sponsored events... the greater the chance of chatting with Michael. And it is a perfect resolution for fans whom have less concerts to get the opportunity to purchase VIP tix that include a M&G :) Maybe we can write up a fan contract????? LOL Only kidding here Michael ;) MBC is a great charity and I am certain 100% of us would participate in VIP tix that offered a M&G and a donation to MBC :) What do you all think? Just thinking over here.....which might be a bit dangerous!! LOL
Kathy and LAFD Bob
Good to see you back on here Kathy and just to say the VIP tickets that were sold with M&G's for 2014 and 2016 tour over here in UK a portion of cost did go to MBC.
Roll on 2018 and hope Michael does it same way because although really only seconds you get with him sure is better than nothing and also a good way to donate to MBC ... crossing fingers !!! lol
