Annie Haslam and Rick Wakeman
Beyond words good!! Get a ticket to this if you can, sell your first born, a kidney, whatever you have to do! Tony Levin asked us not to give away the set list so as not to spoil the surprise for the first show tonight, so I won’t, but trust me, KC fans will not be disappointed. Jakko joked with me when I told him I loved his little bit that he played on the flute along with Mel, he winced and said “I’m really more of a flute owner, than a flute player”. Funny guy…
Pat Mastelotto had some new gear on stage that he did not have in his set up at the camp I just attended with him and Tony a couple of weeks ago. Some cool gong pieces including the one he was calling a bat and a lopsided butterfly. We had recorded some strange vocals and sound effects at camp too, (that he and Adrian Belew both said they would be using on future projects) and as a couple of us walked into the auditorium, we recognized some of it playing in ambiance music playing as people were coming in and taking their seats…that was an unexpected surprise.
Robert Fripp actually came out for a few moments afterwards and I got to shake his hand and thank him for such a tremendous performance.
A magical night and experience all around. So I’ll be at the show again tonight in the forth row ready for some magic once again since as Pat said to me “tomorrow we are playing for people”
If you haven’t seen Jakko’s guitar for the tour check it out!
Happy Birthday to the incomparable Kelly Groucutt!!
Must’ve missed that Robert De Niro/Queen Tour….
