LOVED LOVED LOVED this show!! I'm sure part of it had to do with the country. OMG, so beautiful. The people are friendly, the food is FABULOUS, and I just couldn't stop looking around. Wow. The venue was set up in a town square and the backdrop was this beautiful old stone building. It was a bit of a change for me in that the opening bands were mostly all guitar related. Duh, I know, I should've realized...I learned!! Again, the fans were ALL ABOUT Joe. It was comical, but cool. The media all gathered in front of Joe's area...nobody was in front of Mikey or Sammy. Reality check!! Lol. The energy was alive, the weather was perfect, the fans were ROCKIN...Wow, THIS was an incredible experience. And I heard this cool chick play some groovy tunes...Kaki King (I probably have her name spelled wrong). Damn the girl was GOOD! I wish we had more time here. Had we known about the Madrid cancellation and what to expect in Italy, I def. would've taken more time for Pistoia.
