The Hollyweird Tour Hits Hunts

REVIEW BY: Southernrock Chic
In the beginning of the show, Faster Pussycat stepped out on stage, appearing as I have never seen them before. This was not the 1980's group that I remembered. They changed their identity, and their style of music completely. From the beginning I could tell that they did not have the attention of the crowd at all, and most just sat in awe at what was happening on stage. Faster Pussycat now appears much like Marilyn Manson, very dark, gothic, and heavy. They played thirty minutes, and left the stage, and the crowd never even applauded. I guess they were all still as much shocked as I was.
After a brief intermission to change the stage setup Winger was on stage rocking the arena, playing many of their old hits from the 1980's thru the early 1990's. They put on a fabulous show, and the crowd was pleased, standing up in ovation at the end of their set.
After another brief intermission period, once again to change equipment, Cinderella came out to a roaring crowd – they, too, were great, and put on a fabulous show, doing many old songs, and really putting the crowd in their best interest. They did a great job, and played an hour set, and said goodnight to the crowd.
One more intermission and Poison was on stage rocking the arena, starting with "Look What the Cat Dragged In," followed by “Fallen Angel” and “Talk Dirty to Me,” leading to many more favorite songs, and doing some of the new stuff from Hollyweird as well. They also did “Something to Believe In,” dedicating it to the victims and families of the 9/11 tragedies.
Poison put on an awesome show, and although only two members were able to show up for the meet and greet, it went extremely well. I am glad I was able to attend this show, due to KNAC for the contest page. Thank you so much to KNAC...
