Icon33 Live in Detroit, Michigan with Chad Smith

There was a huge blizzard which made the drive to the gig slow and crappy and the drive home even slower and crappier!

But the show was awesome. Just an incredible performance by Hughes and the band. Glenn was coughing from time to time, but it certainly didn't show in his voice. I've only seen Glenn once other time (during the Voices of Classic Rock tour a few years ago) but I have heard a lot of his live performances and his vocals last night were as good as I ever heard. It's so amazing to see him do that live.

The band played loose and most songs turned into extended jam sessions. They all seemed to be having a lot of fun, joking around with each other and laughing, and there was a lot of energy in the performance. I was really impressed with Jeff Kollman - I thought he was outstanding and wish he would play with Hughes more often. Chad was great, of course - he beats the hell out of the drums and kept tossing sticks over his head towards the people in the balcony behind the stage. Plus, he flipped his entire drumkit over after the last song. Ed Roth was really good on the keys, too.

No surprises on the setlist - pretty typical stuff: Soul Mover, Orion, You Keep on Moving, Steppin' On, Land of the Livin', Don't Let Me Bleed, Coast to Coast (dedicated to Mel Galley), Gettin' Tighter, Mistreated, and I'm probably missing a couple. Burn was the encore. My friend got a copy of the setlist and Might Just Take Your Life was listed as an encore but wasn't played. There really weren't a lot of songs played, but that's because every song was extended with jams, solos, and vocal gymnastics.

I was in the very front of the stage, in front of the keyboards - probably not the best area for sound quality, but you can't beat the experience (except for a couple annoying guys next to me). Unfortunately, I didn't get to meet up with anyone from this site, nor did I get to get into the meet and greet. The crowd turnout was decent and enthusiastic. And there seemed to be a LOT of people backstage compared to most shows (I think there is a backstage bar on the second floor) - that really gave it more of a party atmosphere. Which was cool - it made the show less formal and more fun - I just wish I was invited to the party!!!

That is my report for now. I'll probably have more to add later when other people start chiming in, but overall my friends and I agreed that it was one of the coolest shows we have been to.

Wow, what can I say? This was the best concert I've ever seen, or at least it ranks very very high on my list. I was seated front row center in the balcony, which was empty! I think me and my girlfriend were the only one's up there. The view was perfect, we could see EVERYTHING perfectly. Glenn's voice sounded amazing, you'd never know he was still a little bit sick.

And Chad, WOW. I've seen him before with the Chili Peppers but this was completely different. I don't think i've ever heard him sound so good. You could tell he was really on his game last night and enjoying every minute of it. Not saying he's been bad lately with the Chili Peppers but it certainly seems like he's much more inspired and playing a lot better with Glenn. I even saw him before the set walking around, it was certainly a surprise and all I could really say to him was "hey man, big fan here, have a great show!"

Ed was fantastic on the keys and Jeff on guitar was brilliant as well, but I must say that I was mostly watching Glenn and Chad who absolutely stole the show.

As for the setlist, Jon L pretty much covered it except add You Got Soul. I think there was only 10 songs played, but like he said the extended jams and solos really made up for it.

Again, AMAZING show and thanks to everyone in the band who made it worth the trip even though the drive home was the worst road conditions i've ever drove through.

Would have had pictures, but half way to the concert I realized I forgot my camera!

Thumbs up Bring on the F U N K

Just got back from Detroit after a 3-hour plane delay, supposedly because of the weather, although it wasn't actually snowing today - go figure!!

Fantastic show last night, good venue and the crowd were really into it, despite the blizzard conditions going on outside

Once again Chad brings out the best in Glenn - you'd never know he was laid up in bed all last week battling the flu. The voice was in great shape

As mentioned earlier, the encore comprised of just the one song in the end.

Great to meet some of you last night, hopefully we'll have another chance later in the year

Here are a couple of pix and movie clips - enjoy

thanks for the post david, and it was cool meeting you. we had a hard time getting out of detroit today as well, not to mention the fact that i wasn't sure if we could even get the car to move out of the snow last night but a long, slow ride to the airport, 3 canceled flights, a move over to jersey and a real sweet talking job to squeeze us in on a flight finally got us back to charleston. great show and Glenn was filled to the brim w/ class once again. amazing that he can still do that and sing that way while still feeling ill, but it was a wonderful time had by all, and we look foward to the (hopefull) anouncement of a few more gigs in the states later this year.
God bless.

Thanks David for everything and especially to you Chad - bloody marvelous. After hearing that rendition of "Coast To Coast", I'm floored. I'm sure your inspiration got Glenn to go that extra mile for everyone

And by the way, you've absolutely got to record that jam you did at the soundcheck - live or studio - I'm knocked out, absolutely brillant stuff.

Thanks again.

Thank you so much David for the pics. I'll have a look at the vids later today
Glad to see you all had great fun and you all got back home safely.
Nice set list. The opening with Soul Mover is quite unusual but such a good idea. And you had Coast to Coast, waouh !!! Never heard this one live.

I hope that Glenn will come to Barcelona on the next tour, and I wish he is playing Coast to Coast he has never played in Barcelona.

Thanks to each and every one of you for sharing the experience. We read posts about 4-hour drives and long 'plane rides without sometimes grasping just exactly what that involves. That's dedication - and kudos to you all

David - thanks so much for the great shots. Absolutely love the vid for DLMB - everyone's on fire.

... and Chadster - spuds, the gallout?

Can I feel it? but of course ... it's in my bones! (blood )

I'm dusting down my freak flag for the summer!!

Wow! What an amazing experience! I got to the Emerald around 5pm. I saw a limo & 2 buses behind the rear stage door. No one was around, so I walked to the front to see if anyone was there yet. There was a couple from New Hampshire waiting! They flew in for the show--big Glenn Hughes fans! Then the soundcheck started, we got to hear like 5 or 6 songs. Two more guys walked up during soundcheck and they were from South Carolina! They also flew in to see Glenn! Awhile later, an Emerald employee came out & said we could wait up in the Rock Room bar. By now, there was like 20 more people. We all went into the Rock Room to warm up--it was really cold outside & a huge winter storm was on it's way. After about a half hour, they let us enter the Emerald. Most of us went directly to the front of the stage. We had to sit thru an opening act. Then after they were done, a guy from the Rock Dog Productions came & hollered that if you won the meet & greet contest, that you had to go over to this side entrance. I entered the contest, but thought they were going to announce the winners from the stage, but they didn't. So I figured I didn't win. A few minutes later, this woman came running up to her husband & told him that he won the contest. His name was on a sign by the front door. I thought I'd better go check the sign, being that they didn't announce the winners. Sure enough, my name was on the sign! I went running back to the side entrance & told them that I won. They made us wait in the hall a couple mins. Then they escorted us upstairs. A guy came over and said that Glenn & Chad were running late, because they left the building after soundcheck & now were stuck in traffic, cuz the roads were bad. Apparantly, the winter storm had begun (forecast said 9 inches of snow!) Then the guy proceeded to pass out an autographed drum stick from Chad! Thank you Chad!!! He said the meet & greet would take place after the show now. Someone asked if we had to stay upstairs & watch the show, and the guy said, no, you could come back up after the show with your pass. We told him that we never got passes. He told us to go to the will call window & pick them up. So, we all ran down & got our passes. It turned out to be a cool laminated backstage pass! I chose to go back up & watch the show from there, cuz I would be closer to Chad. Plus, when's the next time that I'll watch the show from backstage?

The show was awesome! I was lucky enough to go to their show in L.A. at the Whisky-A-Go-Go last June, so this was my second time seeing them. They played for about an hour & 1/2. If they ever come to your town, definetly go check this show out! Chad's a monster on the drums! My favorite songs were: SOUL MOVER, ORION & DON'T LET ME BLEED.

After the show the Rock Dog guy told us there would be a limit of 3 autographs per person and that the photographer would take our photos with Chad & Glenn. When it was my turn, as I walked up Chad was talking to a roadie , so I said hello to Glenn & told him what a good show it was. He was very thankful. I also told him that I saw their show at the Whiskey last June. He said, "Chaddy, she was at the show in LA at the Whiskey." Chad, still talking to the roadie, looked at me & said, "Oh that's cool" He then looked away, and then did a double take and said, "I know you!" I re-introduced myself. I have met Chad about a dozen times now, but the last was about 4 years ago, so I wasn't sure if he'd remember me---but he did!!! I'm leaving our conversation out of this, but I got to talk to him for a few minutes. The photographer took 2 pics of us together. (As of now, I'm still waiting to hear back from him on how to obtain the pics) Chad kissed me on the cheek & I got a hug, too!! I left soon after. The next I'll see him is when he comes back for the second Toby Redd reunion show in June! I can't wait till then! I put some pics from the show in my album called, "photos by Melanie".

hey mel, glad to see you made it on here. enjoyed seeing you at the show. hopefully we'll see each other next time too. i looked for the obnoxious guy after the show to see if he still thought that leathertounge was better than f!@#ing Glenn Hughes, but by then i guees he had quietly slipped back away into obscurity.(which would have been the only thing he did qietly the whole night ) take care and enjoy the site

I wish I could of met you at the meet & greet but the bouncers at the theater moved us the Rock Club Bar & I could not get back to the area. That really sucked but I got to meet some new friends from the site and that was cool!

Melanie, reading your post about the show at the Whisky reminded me of something cute. We had the opportunity to meet Chad's wife, Nancy, at the show (super sweet individual!!). My son was quite taken with her. A couple of months after the show he was riding with me to the store. I looked in my rear view mirror and saw he had a far away look in his eyes. I asked him what he was thinking about. He said, "Mom, when are we going to see that pretty lady again?" Since this was quite a while after the show I had no idea who he was talking about. I asked him and he said ... "that lady at the concert in California...(long pause and twinkle in his eyes)...the one who told me I was so handsome." LOL If he was 15 years older...Chad might have had some competition there

I'm certainly not breaking any new ground here , but it's taken me a few days to get kind of caught up since getting back from detroit. i'd like to say that i saw the grateful dead, and i know that bands like phish, and widespread have there followers, and people who travel to see them play, but let me just say that what we might lack in #s, we make up for in brother(sister)hood. one of the main things that i bring back from the show is a new feeling of comrodery w/ some of my fellow GHPG friends. flying into detroit was ok, the traffic from the airport to the hotel sucked, as expected, and we pretty much went strait on to the emerald theatre so that we'ld know where we were going to be. when we walked up at about 5:30 or 6, there were already 2 -3 people standing there. no mistaking that these people must have been some more hardcore fans, so i felt right at home. we could hear the band warming up inside and it was exciting for me to get a glimpse of what was to come. hearing part of coast to coast was great, because its one of my favorites, and they didn't play it in new york. and then to hear them jamming to "might just take your life" really got me fired up. (unfortunantly, because of Glenns illness, it was ommited from the encore, but at least being there early, i can say that i HEARD them play it).

More people came up and we all had fun relating to the fact that we were fans of big daddy, and recognized each other from the GHPG web site. we even got a few fans to join us on here ( i've seen metal mel posting already) it was a very cool(pun intended) experience for us. the club moved us upstairs to the bar room, only after we made them promise about ten times that we were sure to be let into the actual concert area first, and we all went upstairs and had a few cold ones and shared more glenn hughes storys. between all of us there , we seemed to know more about glenn than he knows about himself or at least, it sure seemed that way. we finally got into the club and secured our spots up front and we got a table or two right at the front for keeping our coats and drinks at. we rotated some on who would stand and keep our up front places and who would just sit and drink. i defanently took one for the team during the opening band, standing by one of the worlds most obnoxious guys who insisted on yelling out to anyone who would hear him that " leathertounge is better than Glenn f$#@ing Hughes". if i hadnt come so far and the chance to see glenn was so few and far between, i would have kicked his ass just to protect the honor of our big daddy. but it just didn't seem worth it to miss the show because of an idiot. we hooked up w/ a few more fans from GHPG, our big boy, theo stix w/ his own personal glenn hughes credit card, wich we secretly charged the **** out of (he's still probably having his new purchaces denied ) the guy standing on the other side of me told me that he was jeff kollman's guitar teacher when jeff was 14. it did appear to be true, as he and jeff did seem to obviosly know each other.

At the end of the first band, they made some kind of announcement from the stage about contest winners from the web site. i remember seeing something on here about a backstage contest, but for some reason, just never entered. now , as i convieniently remember it, it was drew k. that came up to me and said "hey man, are'nt we winners ?" . so feeling presured to go along w/ his obvious boguss attempt to sneak backstage, we went up to the front lobby, where the list was posted and each of us chose a name from the list that we now were going to call ourselves. of course, we did each pick an alternative name, incase our first name choice was already there to claim his true place in line (the nerve of some people, huh? ) after a few times rehearsing our new names, we were ready and were going w/ the flow. as it turned out, we SEEMED to know more about what we were talking about than the employees in charge of the thing, so backstage we went. only problem was glenn and the band had left after soundcheck, so we couldn't hang out w/ them. none the less we had drinks, watched the second opening band play and made a few more friends while we waited. finally, chad showed up soon before they were to play. we said hello and decided to make our way back downstairs to reclaim our place right in front of the stage for the show. once again, with arogance that traveling 700 miles to see a show will give you, we made our way right back up front by theo stix and were ready for a dose of some FUNK. many people had cameras, and i had my video recorder and we were ready.

The band came out and immediatly started moving some souls and after that busted into "orion" . glenn stopped for a moment to talk and noticed my little "freak flag" that i had made and said that he had read about that on the web site, which was a cool thing for me. the next song, the land of the living was great , and then mistreated. i'm here to tell you that i've been listening to that song for almost 30 years, and it has never sounded better. Glenn is amazing how he does what he does. you got soul was next , which is a cool song to see him play, but then was coast to coast, which was really a treat. after that, just like we had done just a few hours earlier.."get up and get in line" 'cause its "getting tighter all the time" how can that not be one of your favorite g.h. songs (just a little more PURPLE MUSIC) dont let me bleed, which seems to be an emotional song for glenn and then stepping on were both great. then a little more PURPLE MUSIC w, you keep on moving,wich is another great one(wasn't come taste the band a great record?) and then after a short break , the encore. i was soooo psyched to hear them bust into might just take your life, but instead the opening notes to burn rang out. not that burn is not a great classic, but if you notice my little picture logo on here , i chose the album cover to burn, so might just take your life would have been a gem that you may never hear him play again (although i hope not, i kind of feel like you owe me one there Glenn ) when they finished w/ burn , i was going to point at might just take your life on the set list, but when chad stood up and totally knocked his drum kit over, i knew all was lost for that and the night of music had come to an end

After the show, the club employees tried their best to clear us out of there, but i wasn't done yet, because i knew that just a little ways off backstage was the man that i had come 700 miles to shake hands w/ so, once again i put on my "contest winner" hat and made my case to the guy at the door. when theo stix showed up , this time w/ his actual v.i.p. pass on, i told the dude that i was w/ him, but they never gave me my pass, and backstage we went. after a few mins. glenn came upstairs and we all had a nice little chat. i must say , Glenn was deffanently impressed w/ theo's glenn hughes credit card, and we all had a good moment. then chad came up and i talked to him for a short bit. then , the "real" contest winners ( not some poser like myself) were lined up to get there pics. taken w/ glenn and chad. since everything else was going my way that night, i got in line and got some photos snapped w/ my new mates and told them that i would see them later this year when they played again (and again) here for us in the states. glenn and chad said that they'ld see me there ( wich , of course i've already taken to mean that i have an open ended backstage welcome to the next show).it was such a great night, worth every dollar spent and every mile travelled, and i can't wait to do it again!! i'd like to make sure that i say how cool it was for glenn, chad, jeff, and ed to let me stand directly in front of them and record the show. so many preformers would have immediatly stopped me from doing that and they freely allowed anyone to take all of the pics. that they wanted. this is just another example of class and true fan appreciation by them and it's just another reason why i/we love them all so much. it is such a give and take between glenn and his band, and us, the fans. they make us feel like more than just fans, we are treated as friends and part of the family , and i'm not sure i could give them a better compliment than that, because we all already know how great the music is (better than f@#$ing leathertounge)

So thanks Glenn, Chad, Jeff , and Ed, you all made this boy from charleston, s.c. proud to be a fan, friend and a member of the Glenn Hughes family !!

Great reading there purplemusic. Did you find the guy who was bad-mouthing Glenn? I'd like to picture him face down in the snow!

I am always so thrilled (and Jealous) to read the reports of shows. Everyone does such a great job of covering all aspects it's ALMOST like being there. Hopefully sometime in the future I'll get another chance to catch a show.
