I know you guys like acts that normally don't roll through Tulsa. So i gotta ask. Is this one of those shows that should not be missed?
I'm not real familiar with their whole discography. And I'm sure that I have heard some of their songs.
The one thing that I am impressed by is that the BOK is one of these venues with only 9 tour dates announced.

I saw them in 1987 at the Expo Center but they (and I for that matter) were much younger.  Bruce (the lead singer) from what I've heard isn't the singer he was from then.  But it was an exceptional show.

However, I may still go to this.  I blame them from the 1987 show for the tinnitus I now have in my left ear.  Loud.  Smiley

I always liked their music...kinda reminded me of Uriah Heep and Savoy Brown in musical style...mid-epoch metal-ish.  (Early metal would be like MC5   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uo35O1AJOfg  )

"Must See"....depends - I have seen them as well as Uriah Heep and quite a few others - I probably won't go to this one, but should be a good show if you like that style music!  Don't expect them to hit the highest notes...!!

What did you say...??


Loud == Johnny Winter.  Of all the loud concerts I have been to, his was the loudest.  Uriah Heep was probably second, then all the others grouped together at 140 db+  !!

Jimi wasn't as loud as some of them, but the quality was absolutely unbelievable !!!

That was awesome. Just run an extension cord outside and put the TV on the hood of your car and it will be just like your there.
The band was rockin and the crowd was as dead as I have ever seen. Good stuff.
