Concert Notes:

- New concert intro (with video on screen) fits well with the 'End of the World' theme and starts the concert out with a bang!
- On keyboards: Brett Tuggle (Rick's keyboardist during the 80's tour) - also guitar for a few songs.

 - If you can take your eyes off Rick long enough, watch the new drummer, Jorge Palacios. He really rocks it out during 'Jessie's Girl'. 
- Rick wore dark sunglasses during the entire show (even though they fogged up and he had to clean them a few songs in). He said he wasn't trying to be cool, but had to wear them because he poked himself in the eye. 
- Rick introduced 'Roar' by saying he's all for "girl power". 
- Before having the kids he brought on-stage sing during 'Don't Talk to Strangers', Rick asked them to dance first - and got a surprise when the 7-yr-old boy started breakdancing!
