Review by Bob Raymond (Switch to

This should have been renamed  -  a taste of the best rock 'n roll band you'll ever in your life see  - instead of A Taste of Chicago. I don't know if it was the setting, the great weather, the exceptional crowd, the people i went to the show with, the few beers i'd consumed or the great mood the band was obviously in....but this show rocked.

I was a little concerned that we might get the shorter Milwaukee version, but when Todd broke into Open My Eyes I knew it was gonna be the real thing. I don't think from start to finish I've ever been to a better concert ( could be the Miller Lite's talking).

My sister flew in from Atlanta to go to this concert. She has never understood my obsession with Mr. Rundgren's music and wanted to see first hand who this guy is. She started the evening referring to him as Toad, but by the time he appeared in those wicked pants and red shirt in the second set and nailed While My Guitar Gently Weeps - he had won her over. She also made reference to him perhaps being as demented as me watching his antics during Fool on the Hill.

Once again, David Pack was awesome, Ann Wilson was exceptional and I've got to take back my previous comment about Alan Parsons....he was actually quite animated and into the entire evening.

Wasn't planning on doing this, but looks like I'll be looking for another east coast venue. Yes, this concert is that good.
