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!!!

Terry. Thanks ever so much for your review. My first virgin concert was 8/12/92&the reason I'm mentioning it is that it was before the computer days for me. Loved your review. You wrote it oh! so! well. Felt like I was there. I'm glad you got to meet Karen&Lynn. Sometimes pictures don't work like they should but nothing can take away the memories. Welcome to the forum.
Hi TM Sims and welcome to the forum. Just to let you know, no one cares about age here: there are fans ranging from teens to 60+ and we’re all timeless! :D You know, for a first time reviewer, you did this like a pro! :D Dumb question, but what took you so long to get to a concert? Just wondering. I’m glad for you that you found real concert pros to share with. I think half the fun is just fan interaction. Thank you so very much for your detailed review! BTW, I don’t know if Michael did anything different this time, but usually, the “Go the distance” intro is pre-recorded. It’s really nice to hear he sounded great after being sick enough to cancel some shows recently. Oh I hope he’s only pacing himself and hasn’t removed “Nessun dorma” from his setlist... Heehee, I’m surprised Karen and Lyn didn’t tell you that it’s usually standard procedure to rush the stage! Lol It does depend on the venue though. Glad to hear your very first concert was so much fun and so memorable. BTW, if you don’t mind my asking, what may we call you? TMSims seems a bit impersonal. I understand about privacy, but if you’d like to share a nickname, it would be more fun, I think. :D Well anyway, I hope you like it here, we’re a friendly bunch and if you have time to spare on here and need directions, there’s always someone around to help. Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie QC Canada :D
I did hear no aria at the last show from Lynn. Yeah I forgot to mention too that GTD is a recording in the very beginning of the show. If he came out singing Soul Provider he must be better. If he started with the guitar set, maybe he's not quite feeling 100%.. I dunno, just guessing here..LOL TMSims thanks again for coming in and posting!!!

T. M. Sims. I couldn't have said it any better than what Sylvie said in reference to your review. I will read it eventually. I know Karen & I've met Lynn & they're awesome people & welcome to the forum. It's not the amount of times one goes, it's the time one goes & it's better late than never, right. Seems to have been an awesome 1st concert for you. :)
Hey Terry, thanks very much for your response. Lol I see the MB magic is still working! ;D I was just curious and I know I ask a lot of questions, but that’s how we get to know each other. I’m sure everyone who had a late first concert has their special story. Robin started another thread about first time concert experiences, if you’d like to check it out:
I understand about GTD, how are we supposed to know the first time? Well glad to hear you’re not shy and it’s great to virtually meet you Terry. :D Heehee, spoken like a true newly-addicted fan: first row next time! Music is a powerful thing and our Michael says his fans are the best. I keep saying he deserves the best! :D Take care sweetie and have a great week. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie QC Canada
Welcome Terry!!! I see everyone has made you feel welcome as we all do here!! I come and go with my posting...lol So post when you can :)))

Hey Karen, GREAT Review lady... I am glad you got to give MB your rose and he went right past you all. June had seats close to you and I wondered if you did see her to chat. Sounds like you did!LOL Nice to catch up with BB's from back the good ol CT Gala days!!! She's moved down there now so she will be attending shows more down that way. Her husband Joe played golf at the MBC Charity events in the past for a few years. They usually paired him with the band guys!! fun times back in the day...
Sounds like it was a fantastic night for all of you!!! So glad to hear it!! Bummer no aria, his voice may not be up to that yet!!!
Nice that you were able to cellcert Robin R. again. I know she treasures those calls from you Karen..
Thanks for your fun review!!! I felt like I was there with you as he walked past!!! :)

I love to do cellcert songs too but with me being on the west coast after 9, Oops, it's after midnight&hate to wake a BB up. I remember Joe played Golf in the MBC events. So awesome. Well, I'm writing too much. I'll never learn. But, I'll be back. :) those going to the show in Fort Meyers, enjoy&come back with reviews. Man, he's all over Florida. Remember that Judine lived in Clearwater, I do believe?
Oh thanks a million for that review Karen, absolutely wonderful and so, so pleased you had such a great time both at the concert and your days spent in Florida !! :) Can't wait to see your videos if as good as your last one.....looking forward to but you take your time, we'll all be here waiting !!! lol
