About the Piorno Festival: From Michael's management: "Having just read the concert review of Granada I feel I must offer an explanation. I spoke to Michael and he told me that they did not even get to go onstage until 2:00am. not their fault. If that wasn't bad enough, halfway thru the set, the keyboard stopped working. They wanted to continue to play as evidenced by the singer remaining on stage until the last moment. Anyone who was there should be able to verify that information. When you have that many bands playing, it is impossible to predict how things will go. Michael said in his entire career, he has never gone onstage at 2:00am and there was still one band left to perform. Regardless of the content of the reviews, we very much appreciate the fans taking the time and effort to send them along."

MSG Bergara Show Review: Joseba has kindly sent me a review of the Bergara Show. Michael sounded perfect and was in a top form!! He looked happy and smiled all the time!! I am not really sure as to whether they actually did stuff from the Schugar/Schenker project (the authoer mentioned it's similar). Anyway, looks like the show was superb! Thanks for the review, Joseba!
