Paul Rodgers - Atlanta, Georgia
May 7, 2000
Review by Lucy Piller.
Well I cannot believe it's over.......Yesterday a jam packed midtown had over 247.000
visitors over the weekend to see bands like:- Foreigner-Taj Mahal-Jeff Healey-Kenny Wayne
Shephard-The Allman Brothers-Creed and the VOICE Paul Rodgers.
The weather was perfect.
Pretty hot though if you were there all day but we only went for Paul this time. It was
great to see the Allrightnow fans who travelled from places like Florida, South Carolina
and North Carolina. Some came just for the gig and then drove home. I am sure those who
drove many miles to see Paul went home very happy.
The band members all were looking wonderful. Paul seemed to look in more shape than
ever. Remember the last time you saw him and thought wow he's so in shape. well he looks
even better. (no........how can that be) He must be doing cardiovascular to his upper body cos his chest was bulging with
muscles........now of of course being up front helped me to check him out, from head to
I noticed many of his movements on stage to be more sophisticated than ever. Love those
hand gestions as he sings his beautful notes....... One song really sticks in my mind, and
is the best version I have ever heard: Satisfaction Guaranteed. It was at a pace where you
just go into a trance. Flowing until you had to close your eyes and to really float away.
It was a killer version. Can't wait to hear it again.................
All members of the band played at their best. And they all were enjoying the crowd who
as usual were singing along with Paul. Cannot remember the song list, but will be adding
more reviews as they come in. And I am sure one of the fans will have the song list. I was
too busy enjoying the music to be writing it down. So what's next?
Upcoming shows are:
- 19th May Cheasapeake VA
- 20th May Bradford TN.
