    Adrian Belew PowerTrio--Tour!!!

    It is still early on the Adrian Belew tour. I attended the San Francisco show last night. It was, as always with Adrian, some of the most impassioned guitar playing one could ever hope to hear. The setlist is basically the same as last year, with the most welcome addition of Neurotica!!! Adrian plays his newer material, some older stuff (Big Electric Cat, Young Lions), and hits the early 80s Crim pretty heavily.

    If you have yet to see this band, GO TO THE SHOW!!!! For those who have seen them, you will enjoy how much the ABPT has gelled into a real band over the last year.

    who else is in the band with him?

    I am just finding out about this today (2/24)--wish I could afford to go up to San Juan Capistrano to see him tonight. Have seen him twice with King Crimson (1996 & 2001), with David Bowie (1990) and with The Bears (1988). He never fails to deliver.

    The Power Trio is Adrian, plus siblings Julie (bass) and Eric (drums) Slick, graduates of the Paul Green School of Rock. They have to be heard to be believed! They are AMAZING together!

    GO SEE THIS IF YOU CAN!!!!!

    I was thinking about it. Although I always hate to park my car in the area by the Beachland Ballroom.

    For anyone going to the show, make sure and pick up a copy of Side Four, the recently released live album of the current AB Power Trio. Great stuff!!!!!

    Re: Adrian Belew PowerTrio--Tour!!!

    The evening started with me picking up my wife, Debbie, at Liberty 1 downtown Philly at 5:10 PM.
    At 5:20 PM we’re at the World Café early and get a table to have a few adult beverages before the show.
    ….and as we’re being seated I notice at the table next to us is Adrian Belew and friends.
    We make eye contact and because of that I say “Hey Adrian, I’m really looking forward to tonight’s show” and he reply’s “Me tooooooo”.
    I do have some manners so I walked by and that was that.
    I was sitting so close I can tell ya he had the Vegetarian Chili..
    …after a while Adrian stood up and put his jacket on, so I figured it was a good time to say something.
    I said Yo Adrian (I am from Philly after all) King Crimson announced the tour today and we (Philly) are getting two shows at the Keswick.
    Adrian reply’s jokingly “Ah, they’re just trying to steal our thunder”

    I am not the guy to give you a set list but I know what I like and this show was PHUCKING awesome.
    I never seen the Belew Trio before and to say I was impressed is an extreme understatement.
    To start the show the three of them came running out on the stage.
    …and then Adrian says “One thing I ask is no “Yo Adrian’s” (Philly, it’s a Rocky thing..ha ha)
    The enthusiasm and energy to the max!!!
    It was the best show I’ve seen in a long time.
    Adrian Belew is a guitar god, at one time he was on his knees playing the guitar and the effects pedals with his hands.
    He had this big Cheshire cat smile on his face the whole night, it looked and felt like he was having the time of his life.
    One of the highlights for me came from Eric Slick. It was at the end of a song I know Ampersand. Let me tell you he was hitting the drums so freaking hard (he was putting his whole body into it), like a sledge hammer I don’t know how he didn’t put a hole in the drum.
    It was soooooooooo cool!
    I gotta admit, I don’t know any female bass players, but, let me tell you Julie Slick was amazing.
    She is quick as shyte and she is also one of those musicians who play live on stage in bare feet (someone want to explain why) like Steve Wilson for one.
    …at one point she was jamming and leaning almost up against her amp with one of the best bass player scowls on her face I’ve ever seen.
    I refuse to mention that she is also young and beautiful, it’s all about the music. Yeah I refuse to mention that.
    This show was Hot!!! Whenever they play Philly I’ll be there.

    Well, that’s my best shot at a review.

    If you have the chance, GO SEE THIS SHOW!
    You will have a wonderful time!

    Thanks for the great review Jim!!!!

    The tour is wrapping up. Don't miss it if it is coming to your town, and pick up Side Four!!

    For that matter, Side One, Two, and Three are good albums (Side Two is my favorite of the three). I started a thread about these albums quite a while back and they got very little response. I don't get that Adrian is not HUGE among prog fans in general, or Crim fans in particular. He is my favorite living guitarist!

    We had a fantastic time last week at the Chicago show. What a fantastic trio! Adrian was having a great time as was the audience. I love how he watches for the crowd reaction after a great guitar riff. He grins as if to say, "How did ya like THAT!"!

    My only complaint was that the stage was ringed by 6 foot plus guys...it took 1/2 the show before I could wiggle into a spot that I could actually see Eric. No problem hearing him tho!

    We had an awesome time Tuesday night at the Iron Horse. We sat right in front of the stage, had lots of eye contact w/ AB. I got my Bears LP and Young Lions disc signed after the show and was home within ten minutes, ears still ringing. Great show. As a review in our local paper said, "could a musician appear any happier?"
