    Do it. No question it's the best show I've ever been to or will probably ever go to. Can't recommend it enough.

    Would love to check out Stevie again, especially doing such an iconic album.
    Anybody know if this tour will be heading over to Europe later in the year, summer/autumn time perhaps?

    I saw him in 79' at Wembley, London on the last night of seven gigs at the Wembley Arena. Very lucky, as on that last night he had as surprise special guests Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye on stage with him.

    Along with EWF, who I had seen the year before on their 'All 'N' All' Tour, most memorable concert I've ever attended....

    missed the show.
    and Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea just happened to be in town and sat in for a few songs during the show.
    Major regret.

    This.

    Played the entire album plus an encore with loads of hits. You definitely get your money worth as he played for almost 3 1/2 hours at the show in Seattle.

    Went to see the tour in Toronto this weekend and it was aweeeesome.  Huge production that sounds really solid.  SITKOL is not my favorite album of his, but he kept it interesting by mixing in classics/rarities/bonus stuff.  Like, it was Lennon's bday, so he did a version of Imagine that was so epic that he literally broke down in tears in the middle of it (and I say this as someone who isn't normally into that jam).  

    Really diverse crowd... it was bizarre seeing him do Saturn in front of people like Bob here...

    Ha! Had a nice guitar sound and he could bend strings/notes.
    Seemed like maybe it was a touch screen keyboard.

    And back on the main topic: caught Stevie in April, so great.  If you get a chance to go, do not sleep.
