We're from Pennsylvania, but this show was closer than Pittsburgh. Soundcheck 3:30, last time we were dazzled by this was BDW + Jeff Beck. Dinner, anyone? Hmmm? Sue & Steve Schlack, Mrs. Schlichter from the old Blueboard. That's his rock 'n' roll name, Schlichter.

What a great group of people, so generous and accommodating to the fans. I understand that Brian does not particularly like to answer questions and has physical limitations. No one knows his inner struggle, and we always have been aware of that. Nevertheless, he soldiers on with his super-talented support staff. Thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was such a treat to hear so very many songs we had never heard live before. I especially loved the solo Christmas songs. The musicianship and singing was beyond good. For a small percentage of the time, it's true that Brian seemed to be in his own world. Mr. Wilson; thank you for what you're doing for all of us. We feel it. I hope your knee feels better soon.

Took some pictures only before the music began and demanded my full attention. Thanks to Blondie and Probyn, who mingled out in the lobby with the soundcheck and meet & greet people. Thanks Paul for being so welcoming, gracious, and apologetic about the rehearsal. Those starts and stops really never happened, and we were blown away from the very first note. Thanks, Brian for writing so much beautiful music, and touring when you should be livin' the easy life. Thanks Probyn, for talking to us, a small group who know each other from this Community and the earlier "Blueboard." I can't tell you how much that adds to everything. 

The St. George Theatre is really beautiful, and it's so close to the free Staten Island Ferry that runs round the clock. That dazzling skyline is RIGHT THERE, with the Statue of Liberty getting dwarfed by the new Freedom Tower at Ground Zero. Had plenty of time between the 3:30 soundcheck and 8 show for sightseeing and dinner. bx1.jpg  bx2.jpg  bx3.jpg  bx5.jpg  bx5a.jpg  bx6.jpg

Sue - You, like so many others here, are a good soul.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts and feelings so perfectly.  The way we look at life can influence the way we experience - and look back at - a concert.  These are people up there - all with their own struggles, energies, and desires.  You've reminded us of that in a very nice way.

-Doug

Great report, Sue. I share your sentiments.

Am going Saturday to the Austin, TX show and I couldn't be more pumped. We may be sadly getting to the point of wondering how many more tours there will be. I don't like to dwell on this thought, but it does make me concentrate on enjoying each show even more.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.....
