Review by Lucy Piller
I attended this concert with my dear friend Tim White (lead guitarist of the band BLUES
CAT). We wanted to leave early and take our time and enjoy the 2-3 hour drive from
Atlanta. We arrived at the one year old venue around 6pm, met up with some friends from
the website Steve and his sister. I had hoped for backstage passes but it did not work
this time around. We had great seats, all of us, but when BC came on everyone dashed to
the front anyway.
First came on David Lee Roth. Now I am not a DLR fan nor a Van Halen fan. I know they
are good but I never did get into them. He was in fact very entertaining, but being so
close to the stage his bulging pants were bothering me. Especially when he would grab his
........ He sang well and was in great shape. Oh well the fans were still loving him so
good luck to him.
I met some really nice fans at the gig. Many of them coming from Atlanta too.
Then it was time for THE band. They looked good and started right into "Cant get
enough". If any of you saw the Orlando pay per view show, you remember someone had
thrown a bra onto the stage. Well I decided to do the same. I found a tiger patterned bra
a few days previous and thought, "Aha, our dear Paul would get a kick out of seeing
this style." He saw it on the stage, picked it up and laughed, he even put it on
around his chest!!!! Cannot remember the song list I'm afraid, I was enjoying the show too
much to write things down. If you read the review by Tim he talks more about which songs
The venue holds about 11,000 but I would imagine there were around 7,000 there. Nice
place indeed. Must go again sometime. Lots of nice t-shirts and mug holders, also keyrings
and stickers. I spent too much money there, but hey when will we ever see them tour
again??? Who knows????
A great evening as expected. Time is running out, guys. If you live on the West Coast,
make sure you get tickets for the hottest show in town.
