It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience last night in Buffalo. The show was supposedly not a sell out but it sure looked like it inside. Phil made a point to mention how they have had Buffalo as one of their stops on every tour since they have been coming to the States & I know that they have a very strong following here. Don't know if there are any other "P-laters" though.
The set list was the same, and as has been mentioned...the stage show was spectacular. Phil sounded very good...I know that he was finessing several parts, but he is a pro and accomplished the task very well. Again...I am a singer, so I may have noticed things that the general attender may not.
I was there with a friend who was seeing them for the very first time and it was great to see his reaction. For some reason, "Domino" stuck out to both of us & we were really rockin' through that one. The intensity overall was strong and the sound was excellent. Don't know if it was intentional or not, but some times Tony seemed to be a bit low on parts that you think would stand out.
It was very impressive that somewhere around "Hold on my Heart" or "Home by the Sea" it had already seemed like a full show...I turned to my friend and told him that we were not even half way there.
They really are on a break-neck pace as far as night after night dates and I was really impressed with their energy. Especially Phil, as they turned the half-way point and I knew that the drum duet/solo was coming up. I don't feel that they held back at all and all of them sincerely seemed to be enjoying themselves. Phil is an expert at working a crowd & Mike and Daryl were showing what emotion they do...at the appropriate times...like they were liking it. Tony was Tony, but still seemed to be getting into the show.
This was the seventh time that I have seen them & I am not one who is easily impressed, but I was completely satisfied. I am not even a big fan of "Tonight, Tonight" or "Hold on my Heart", but their professionality made songs like that impressive.
If you still have a chance...you should GO!!!! I even tossed around driving up to Albany on Weds. We shall see.
Has there been any word on whether they will release any of the soundboard recordings of the N.American leg?
If any of you have any further questions, please just ask.
