Davey Bell wrote: 6 rows from the front, just off centre. Bruce walks into a solitary spotlight and begins Follow That Dream.. his voice alone shakes the plaster off the ceiling. Me and 2,500 others become hooked for life. Still THE greatest live show I've seen. During "Wreck on the Highway" I share a look with a total stranger that says; "Oh my God! this is awsome"

Dave W wrote: A life changing day, my first Bruce concert. Already a fan this took it to a new level. On the balcony overlooking the stage I was blown away.Everyone singing & dancing for all they were worth & yet you could hear a pin drop during Point Blank which was awesome.
