Speaking of Michael..he was looking very road weary already! He has his trademark blonde hair...but he looks like Charles Manson...or a hermit who finally came out of his cave..and forgot to go shave and take a shower. He did however move around more than I can ever remember,and he did KILLER versions of Are You Ready To Rock...Assult Attack...Attack of the Mad Axeman..Armed and Ready and only UFO song was Doctor Doctor. Pete stumbled back on stage and thought he was going to ramble on about Chicago and everything else on his drunken mind. The band however(including Michael) kept going over his rambling until finally he gave up and just played. Michael did apologize once for his bandmate..and seemed pretty pissed off at him after the show. I am going again Wednesday Nov 28,and I think it's just MSG playing...no opening band..and TWO for ONE tickets!!!!!! I gave the show on a scal from 1-10 a strong seven. My buddies gave it a six...saying he played too many new songs..and not enough UFO/OLD MSG...His playing was very passionate and he only slipped up 2 times I can remember...Wish all Michaels fans could be here Wednesday.....
Hope everyone has a great holiday season!
