Concert Review by Marshy Michael Schenker & Friends at The Twist, Colchester, U.K. January 26, 2008 Added on 02/02/2008
I thought it was about time that somebody that witnessed a blinding night's entertainment at the Twist last weekend sent in a review of the gig!
For those of you that have never been to the Twist, it is compact venue holding approx 200 at it's capacity. I am pleased to report that the venue was a sell out and how good it was to meet up with and to see so many familiar faces, dating back to gigs of 30 years ago and in some cases more. The band were in fine form on the night playing the same set list as all the previous shows so far. Michael was playing very well, looking focused and nailing all the solo's just like you hoped he would. The running order I thought was spot on, allowing the show to gain momentum as the evening progressed. This really is a greatest hits tour and anybody worried about Michael's recent history should have no fears whatsoever, and get yourself a ticket for the remaining shows to see the great man on top form and backed by a very able band. Finally great credit must go to Simon and his colleagues at the Twist for getting such a band to play in Colchester. Keep up the good work!!
