Post Eric Martin in Friday (PICTURES AND REVIEW!!!!!!!)
I'm seeing him on the 6th of June, and I'm really excited about it!
I sent him an email and he asked me if I hd any song requests. I said, yes, and asked him to play "Lucky This Time" or "Green Tinted Sixties Minds". I really hope he plays them.
PLUS, I'm taking my Green Tinted Sixties... vinyl, so I can get it signed... I hope I can sometime get it signed by all the band!!

Does any one knows if he includes many Mr Big songs in his setlist? Thanks


EDIT

Well... we met Eric at the door of the venue... he signed our stuff and invited us to the soundcheck... while he was doing the soundcheck he asked us (me and my two friends) which songs we'd like to hear... He played bits of: The Chain, Take a Walk, Just Take my Heart, Superfantastic and a piece of Lucky This Time (the: Opeeeeen your heaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaart, to miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine)
The soundcheck ended and he invited us to the bar and bought us coffee and told us anecdotes of the Mr Big days (many fun stories and stuff)
Then the show began and he recognised us, cuz we where in the front of all, one meter away from him... he said my name (Lucas) at the begining of one song, he then grabbed my camera and took a picture of the audience and then he asked me to grab his guitar for like 30 seconds while he was cleaning the sweat from his face... he played Daddy Brother, Take Cover, Temperamental, Vodoo Kiss, Lost in America, Wild World, To Be With You, Just Take my Heart, and many of his solo stuff as well... it was AMAZING

He played in Chile last year, and they did "Colorado Bulldog", "To Be With You", and don´t remember if they did another Mr. Big one.

Eric sings great live, you´ll see a great show!

No, all the guys in his band are basically unheard of musicians... Sometimes his wife is his drummer...

Actually Eric plays with a different band in the countries he performs. He has a band of Argentinian musicians to perform in southamerica.

The guitar player is really good, but I think they are amateur musicians. Eric had to stop the show in Chile to make them tune!!

I don't care about Mr. BIG reuniting. All I really liked about the band was the instrumental. Now, you guys know that the reunion expected on this board is not Mr. Big's... :twisted:
