He Can’t Stand

Phil Collins
Madison Square Garden
October 7

Phil Collins has back and feet issues, so when he plays, he sits.  That’s the only bad news.  The rest is great news!  And apparently he doesn’t even hate Jews (I had to research the rumor EVERY Jew knows about him – ask a Jew if you don’t know of the Phil Collins-Jews rumor)!!!  Some of his old notes can’t be hit AS high, but the man, who may be short on strength, was strong on performance.  And he didn’t even need a jacket.  It was not required! 

SetlistAgainst All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now) / Another Day in Paradise / Hang in Long Enough / Don’t Lose My Number / Throwing It All Away / Follow You Follow Me / I Missed Again / Who Said I Would / Separate Lives (Stephen Bishop cover) / Drum Trio / Something Happened on the Way to Heaven / You Know What I Mean / In the Air Tonight / You Can’t Hurry Love (The Supremes cover) / Dance Into the Light / Invisible Touch / Easy Lover(Philip Bailey cover) / Sussudio

Brad Pitt emoting in space > George Clooney dying in space (and I REALLY enjoyed watching Clooney die in space!).  Best Brad’s been in years!!!!  Maybe cause he did less talking… and more emoting!

Also, why make a space movie where you only go to the moon or Mars or Neptune, when you can make a movie where you go to ALL THREE!!!  But no love for Uranus?

But why did you have to include a Subway Sandwich shop at the moon spaceport?  I thought in the future people would be smarter and stop eating Subway cause it sucks, and especially cause their lettuce is shredded newspaper

But way to reuse Space Cowboy stuff!!!  If only they could have figured out a way to reuse Tommy Lee Jones Clay Shaw JFGay stuff!!!

Verdictgo: Breast In Show

Mark Knopfler + Bonnie Raitt
Madison Square Garden
September 25


But where was the sweatband Mark??? 

And how the funk have you never played ‘Storybook Love‘ live in concert, and even if you never did, how could you NOT break it out on the VERY anniversary of the release date of The Princess Bride????  I mean, you can play whatever you want to play (c’mon, ‘Bacon Roll’??), but there are missed opportunities and then there are REALLY missed opportunities!!  YOU MISSED IT!!! And where was Sting?  Or all the sports highlights paired to your ‘Walk of Life’, which wasn’t even worthy of playing??

Frampton Comes Alive As Joel Stays Alive!

Billy Joel
Madison Square Garden
May 9

Happy 70th Birthday Billy Joel!  YOU ARE THE PIANO MAN!!!  Well, there’s Elton and Stevie and other dudes who tickle the ivories as well or better, but this night was all about you – and seeing Frampton play the two songs I’ve needed to hear Frampton come alive to, which means now I don’t need to see Frampton solo.  So thanks for being born Billiam, and on reaching 70, and of course for playing my favorite ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’ (unlike last time when I saw him).
