Concert Report by Batttttty Michael Schenker & Friends at Flowerpot, Derby, U.K. February 16, 2008 Added on 02/17/2008
Just got back from Derby - well, what can ya say that hasn't been said
already ... Michael and the band were on top form yet again (those Swedish
boys are such a tight team!), the place was packed, and the crew were
professional and cheerful - especially considering how small the stage was!
The sound quality was pretty much spot-on from where DFRTC'n'I were standing
and going by the cheers from the crowd it must have been good throughout the
Lots of very happy people there - and even those at the back of the room
were closer to the stage than they'd have been if MS&F were playing a gig
like Rock City. Nice also to see so many fans who'd been at previous gigs on
this tour - I spoke to a few who'd been to three or four shows already. And
on top of that, the fully-lit and CCTV'd car park was just half a minute's
walk from the venue and only cost Pound 1.

Just wanted to add my views to all of the others associated with this tour.
I've seen most of the greats down the years from Van Halen, Clapton, Satriani and of course Michael many times, and I just wanted to say that what I witnessed in my local little venue in Derby on Saturday night, was nothing short of the best guitarist performance I have ever had the privilege to see.
The speed, the feeling, the complexity and the precision to which every last song was played was truly fantastic.
I'm obviously a little biased as Michael is my favourite guitarist, but I must admit I've seen more consistent performers over the years so it was great to take along a non fan who is a guitarist himself, who echoes my every sentiment in terms of the quality we witnessed.
The band, were tight as a drum and the sound was absolutely spot on.
It's a night which will live in my memory for the rest of my life.
