And now my thoughts on the show...I have to admit I was quite excited as a big melodic rock fan to see this current lineup of Survivor last night at Hollywood Casino in Charlestown WVA about 45 minutes from where I live. Bickler was in so was Jamison along with Sullivan. Obviously we all miss the legendary Jim Peterik's involvement in the band but this still was pretty exciting going into the show knowing both lead singers would be there. The interaction between the big three was about as good as could be expected and at times a little awkward but everybody seemed to be having a good time performing these classic songs throughout the show. I had a feeling it was going to lean heavy on the Bickler era and it was great to be able to hear some early Survivor classics like Feels Like Love, Take you on a Saturday and Rebel Girl. Jimi's songs sung stuck to mostly the better known tunes like I Can't Hold Back, High On You and The Search is Over. I have always been a huge fan of Jimi's work in Survivor and his latest solo album, Never Too Late may be some of the best material he's ever done. He sounded great throughout the night really focusing on energizing the crowd and pouring his heart into every note! Guitarist Frankie Sullivan was solid throughout the night, adding his own touches to these classic songs. All in All a very enjoyable show. I just wished it hadn't ended after 90 minutes...really think Burning Heart and Is it Love would have been some good song additions leading into the Eye Of The Tiger finale! To those seeing the band soon...go and enjoy...you never know how long this current lineup will last...check em out!
