Talking Night Ranger -- New York, NY -- August 11th, 2010

Live at B.B. King's Club, Times Square 8-9:30pm

Wow was this cool. Minimal gear, minimal stage, they just played, and it rocked. Highlights for sure were the last 5 songs. (Don't tell me you love me was absolutely fantastic!) Big props to Joel Hoekstra, the 2nd guitarist in Night Ranger who also plays lead guitar in the Rock of Ages Broadway Show. He absolutely shreds. The dueling solos with Brad Gillis were just awesome!

Gotta say I didn't realize Jack Blades was such a comedian! Telling stories, cracking jokes, he is a great frontman. They didn't mind at all that this 15x platinum band was playing a seated club in times square. They looked like they were having a blast. Jack reminded everyone that Brad once played for Ozzy, and they started jamming on Crazy Train, played only 1 verse, 1 chorus and cut to the solo which he played perfectly. Then they were each telling about their first concert as a kid and started playing a tag of Zeppelin (Whole lotta Love, riff only), Doors (Roadhouse Blues, Kelly Keagy on vocals), Van Halen (Jump) Keyboard intro only. The audience was eating it up. But they had to wrap it up by 9:30 as the Legends of Hip Hop were on at 11. Just as well, had to get home and rest up for Slayerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Front-row at ACOUSTIC set from Night-Ranger

I had understood they did MANY Acoustic Songs:
High Enough , Sentimental ,etc.
WHICH songs were played Acoustic as there was NO standing Area in front of Stage.
ONLY all tables @BB kings with a $10 minimum when Sitting Down!!
Is That true??
and The Drummer did come up to Play the Tamborine ,no?
TOO many disturbances by Wait-Staff

The price for flight was $29.50

NO acoustic songs, think they did that last year.
ALL LOUD AND ELECTRIC!

YES the entire floor to the stage was tables, and NO BARRIER.
but no tables on bar level, that was G.A. (thats where i stood)

YES $10 min. (if you sit) but thats 2 beers,...so whatever.

The show was a lot of fun.
