Band was TIGHT and they sounded GREAT! Jon Levin knows every note in the book and may have added a few (Lynch would be proud)...Barry Sparks is a great addition on Bass and really helped out on the higher notes for background vocals...They played almost all the Hits (No Dream Warriors or Erase the Slate)and only played one song off of the new CD (Which believe me..is a good thing)
Cons: Don doesn't have the range that he had in the 80's and sells out the high notes on almost every song. The sound on the vocal mic was horrible for the first 6 or 7 songs. There was static, feedback and even no sound at times (Why did it take so long for the tech's to fix this?!)
And did "Wild" Mick really need to say "And the Crowd Goes Wild" after almost EVERY song?!
Overall: I was disappointed for the most part. The sound problems were very distracting and the lack of Don's vocal range was just sad. The good part was my friends and I got to fill in the high notes because we sang along to almost every song.
