If for some reason tonight's show gets rained out, are we all going to head to St. Clair Shores tomorrow night?   Wink

i am counting on solodka to post the set list but i will say that they finally did stone pony!!!!!
brew, i couldnt help think of you.
they also did "respect"
which sounded great!
having not seen the band in nearly a year, i must admit they sounded totally insanely awesome and the crowd was in a frenzy.
the riverfront is such a wonderful venue.  for all you non locals, it is a stage set up outside along side the
detroit river directly across from the gm center which is a huge hotel, cylindrical shaped office space, atrium of restaurants and shops.  it is truly breathtaking and people are boating and they have a huge ferry boat that goes by.
even though this is only the second time the romantics have played this venue, i think it might be one of, if not  the favorite place of mine to see them.  the sound is excellent and the band is so energized when they play in front of the home crowd.  i have a few pics i will be posting on our yahoo group and pinkbubelz has a ton more!!  it was great to see all of the message board people along with other folks who have been supporters of the romantics from way back in the 1970's.  judging by the amount of children i saw last night, it looks like a lot of parents are introducing their offspring to the romantics  and passing the baton of support to the next generation which is so exciting.  the music is timeless, the band is ageless.  truly a phenomenal evening.

Yes, the band sounded great, the crowd was pumped, and people were dancing all along the riverfront.  Unfortunately for myself and my friends, we couldn't get a seat or find anywhere to stand so we could actually see the stage.  Security was a lot tighter than last year, and they wouldn't let people "stand" in any of the "aisles".   Sad

I could occasionally see Mike's face and Brad's drumstick up in the air.  We had fun anyways, but it was pretty disappointing to not even be able to see all of the guys performing.  The only time I did get to see them all up there was when we were heading to the RenCen at the end of What I Like About You.   Watched the encore from inside the building and could actually see better from there!

We might try a "do over" tonight in St. Clair, but only if someone in the know can tell me how I can finagle a view of the stage! 

It was nice, though, to see Iris, Eric, and Mary, and to wave to Judy and say hi to Kelly and Chloe!

Nope, it was Mike Skill.  And it was amazing!  I had never heard that song before and I have to admit that I have now added it to one of my favorites! Smiley

Turns out that the winners were never allowed to go up on stage after all.  Don't really know why, but it seems that the promoters didn't want it.  They were a bit of sticklers that night I guess! Sad

Solodka, we need you to exert your influence to get Stone Pony played here on Saturday night!  It is not only one of your favorites, but one of my favorites, one of my wife's favorites......hell, it's probably one of EVERYONE'S favorites!!
