There is no show in Pa. tonight because Ronnie has a very bad cold. The show last night was very good (not as good as RI but still very good). The venue was very small but it was packed and I think that they sold it out. The set list was the same as in RI although I did see a paper on the stage with the set list on it and IM was listed but they never ended up playing it :(
Ronnie's cold is getting worse and you can tell. I will say that he still takes a lot of chances with his voice even with a cold and doesn't disappoint thats for sure. I did get back stage last night. The band was very nice i spoke with Vinny and Tracy for a long time. Ronnie was doing an interview so i didn't get to speak with him all that much. It is just so evident that this band loves thier true fans and would go to the end of the earth for them.
I will see them tomorrow in NY. and I'll write more then.
