    Great review of an apparently less-than-great show. Alan was cutting edge, once. But then so was my mower blade in the 70’s.

    Great review Brian. Thanks for not making me feel bad I missed the show.

    It ain’t a true BeeMcTee review if there ain’t a word I have to look up. Amalgam. Thanks for that. And thanks for being the guy who won’t let them leave KC without being told “You guys are just phoning it in and we’re onto ya”.

    Thank you for the set list Brian: ), and also thanks for adding the trivia (those fun facts make you great) about Parsons engineering on those classic albums, I did not know that.

    Wow, there are some pretty strong words here for people that didn’t attend the show. A review is nothing more than one person’s opinion about a show/book/movie/etc. and is not definitive in any way. As someone who did attend the show, my perception was quite different, and based on the audience reaction, comments I overheard from fellow audience members after the show, and the length of the line at the meet and greet table, I would say more people than not would disagree with Brian. I have no problem with his review or opinion, but for it to be taken as gospel by others that have no comparison saddens me.

    You nailed it Brian. I was there and it seemed as fake and contrived as a Manheim Steamroller show, which is pretty much “synced” and phoned in. Studio groups rarely kick out the jams LIVE since they never cut their teeth playing in dives. Alan Parsons is a genius in the studio and VH1’s Classic Albums Dark Side of the Moon is a great watch just to see the lengths they went through to achieve what they did on that album. The show was more liking watching golf than a WWE smackdown. I’m a huge fan but you couldn’t pay me enough money to stand in line to meet the guy. What, are we gonna become BFF’s, am I gonna get an autograph or picture? Do you think the guy would remember me five years much less five minutes later.
