Mr. Big Concert Review

My girlfriend Mariah Startzman wanted to see the band Mr. Big on her birthday (February 20).

So we did.

We’ve both been wanting to see the band since we saw Mr. Big singer Eric Martin do a solo set a few years ago.

And it just so happened that Mr. Big reunited last year for a “farewell tour” and are making a new album.

So this was our chance to finally see the band.

It includes not only original member Eric Martin on vocals, but also original members Paul Gilbert on Guitar/Additional Vocals and Billy Sheehan on Bass/Additional Vocals.

The band is filled out by Drummer Nick D’Virgilio (original Drummer Pat Torpey sadly passed away in 2018).

No one but The Ramones has truly done a farewell tour, but IF this is Mr. Big’s farewell tour, then they are going out on top.

They still kick butt.

Great singing.  Phenomenal musicianship.  And great songs.

On this tour, they are playing their entire second album “Lean Into It”, as well as other songs from their career, and some cover songs.

They even switch instruments during one of the cover songs (Good Lovin’).

Really fun and rocking show.

Mariah and I had a lot of fun.

Thank you Eric, Paul, Billy, Nick, and Pat in passing for the great music and shows.

You guys always rock and always will.

Thank you!!
