A View from the balcony......
The last was advertised as a "Totally Different Electric Set" but there were a few repeats. And I think I may have forgotten to mention that the shows have started off each night with the video montage of Rick's career. Its been a crazy week here in Milwaukee. But like all good things it must come to an end sometime and tonight was the night.

We started off with a bang with one of my favorite openers, I'll Make You Happy. The Medley made a return as well, which I am not sure has been heard in a while. Thrown in for good measure was Bathtub Gloria with Californication references. And another crowd favorite back by request Rick said was Jesus Saves. I like this one done better in the audience but I will take it any way I can get it.

IGE made a return with a guitar girl who did an awesome job. After that Rick
told us that at the bowling game earlier to benefit the Wisconsin humane society ( raised $4000 and that of course Team Springfield won the trophy!
Human Touch returned with a trip into the audience and up to us in the balcony before
heading back to the stage for Jessie's Girl.

After a quick break the band returned for the encore of a great version of David Bowie's Suffragette City, in which Barbie and friends joined Matt on stage to sing and dance along. Wasted would be the end to a great week! Oh did I mention the shirtless encore?
