A blinding performance by Mike & the band. Although initially given a fairly lukewarm reception, he soon had the audience warmed to him & clearly both Mike & the band were enjoying themselves immensly.

Fan Comments
The crowd is split into two halfves. To the left side – the polite,
sedated people dutifully listening and to the right the mosh pit..guess
where we were! Mike was fired up and it was a great set.
Personnally Mike blew BC away.
