Mr Big reunion live - short review
a short blog about Mr Big reunion live show on 18 Oct 2009 (just now) at Fort Canning Park Singapore.
1- Paul Gilbert & Billy Sheehan did everything on their guitars and bass except eating them.
2- Eric Martin voice was great, just like on the cassette tapes and cds and in my case - mp3s.
3- Pat Torpey was on drums but just like on their dvds and 'youtube', he did come forward to help with Billy Sheehan double neck bass, and also sing lead vocals on Smoke On The Water.
4- Yes, Mr Big did SOTW during the 2nd encore with Paul Gilbert on drums, Eric Martin on guitars, Pat Torpey on bass, Billy Sheehan on vocals and halfway thru the song, three of them switch instruments and Billy Sheehan took over the guitar for the Ritchie Blackmore solo while Eric Martin took over the bass and Pat Torpey sang.
5- They did all their famous songs from the Paul Gilbert era ( the only Mr Big stuff that I am quite familiar are their hits, lol ), except Promised Her The Moon was not played.
6- They also did AC/DC HIGHWAY TO HELL, with Paul Gilbert also singing, and this was the super big surprise of the night.
7- They were on stage for maybe more than 2 hrs due to the 2nd encore, and nobody expect that.
8- Billy Sheehan gave a short speech at the end about how they love it here, and he claimed thats what they answered during interviews regarding the best places they had played.
9-Special thanks to my friend and his friends for giving me a spare ticket, or else I did not go at all.
10-It was fun, wearing slippers and enjoying the night in the park, I was planning to just laze on the grass at the rear of the crowd, enjoying some nice radio friendly rock music, but I cant resist the temptation to go forward up to the barrier Paul Gilbert side haha.
Nanti aku cerita lebih dan tampal gambo yang taklah cantik, tapi kasi korang get the idea.
