I was looking forward to this show. For some reason, I also had some trepidation................

Micheal Lee Firkins-

This guy opened the show. I missed the first couple of songs. Here's what I caught-

Black Betty
War Pigs
Hold On (?)
Voodoo Child

There were a couple of blues songs mixed in. He was pretty good. His version of War Pigs was interesting.


Rock The Nation
Good Rockin' Tonight
I Got The Fire
I Don't Want It
Spaceage Sacrifice
Make It Last
Rock Candy
Space Station #5

Bad Motor Scooter (With Micheal Lee Firkins)

The more I digest this show, the more disappointed I am. Ten songs in 80+ minutes. Sure he had amp problems, but if you play the studio versions of these songs the time total is 45-50 min. That means 30 min of jerking off. The show was a seated show(?). There was no energy.

Merch was cool.

I'll cross him off my " wanting to see list ". However, I will never pay money to see him again.

I overheard people saying that Micheal Lee Firkins was the best opening band they had ever seen. Don't even get me started.............
