HELLO EVERYONE, Since the 2011 Tour Review Thread is not playing nice and throwing us all back to the beginning lately, Gail asked if I would go ahead and start the 2012 thread. So here it is.. We can all share our excitement for Michael's upcoming touring and events in 2012 and chat and have fun here till the shows start in 2012.
Everyone is welcome to post and share their stories and pictures, videos from concerts and trips to see Michael do what he does best-SING!!! Michael will be touring in 2012 starting so far with some shows the end of January. There could be other events sooner too so if anyone attends a great Bolton event/concert, feel free to share your experience here. I hope to have a review after the Chester, PA show on January 28th along with some other fans that have gotten tickets for that show and the Atlantic City, NJ show on January 27th as well! After that there are shows in Australia so far listed for 2012. Following those shows we have the Concert for MBC and Traveler's Golf Event in June, 2012 and later on the MBC Gala in Sept.. We already have some exciting events to look forward to next year and I know there will be much more to come.
I am looking forward to another fun year of posts and sharing by the best Michael Bolton fans in the world on this forum.. I will post events to keep the thread moving along as the concerts come up as before.

Nice to be remembered Gail! I can not believe it has been what 15 years since that first discussion board was started...dial up modems, or wed night chats....seems like yesterday! Like I said in one of my other posts, through the years Michael's music has always been there
I guess it has been 15 years since those AOL discussion boards and the dial up modems that kept kicking people off...even worse on the Wednesday night chats...get kicked off in mid sentence. Boy we have come a ways. So glad you found this forum! Gail
I can remember girls when I met Gail & several others @ an MB softball game that everyone had a computer except me. I had an awesome time. Thanks to Gail, Jo, & Lynn, I heard of BB'S (Bolton buddies).

Warm greetings from Holland,
Hi Becky, may we call you Becky? :D Welcome to the forum and thank you so much for sharing your time with Michael with us! According to a few fan reviews, his latest concerts have been, let’s say very lively! :D You’ve mentioned having gone to many concerts, were they all Michael concerts? Just wondering. Anyway, I’m glad to hear you had such a great time. Sweetie, I’m so happy for you that your meeting Michael was such a great experience and congratulations on your calm! Oh I can sympathize with you crying after you met him: I sobgbed after the first time I only held his hand! :D Thank you again so much for sharing with us Becky and I hope you have time to look around the forum and join in conversations on so many threads we have here. Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Becky is fine, thank you Sylvie! I have seen Michael in Detroit for the Phantom of the Opera, House of Blues in Las Vegas, Casino Rama, Toronto, Canadaguia, Buffalo and Niagara Falls. One of my favorites was flying in to buffalo when i lived in Alaska to drive up and see him on Stars on Ice live with Kurt browning...My two favorite men!!! That night was outstanding! The MB memories are far and wide....
Oh wow Becky, you’re so lucky to have been able to hear Michael in the Andrew Lloyd Webber tour, it sounds like you like to travel! My goodness, how did you know about the “tribute on ice”? I don’t know of a lot of people who knew about it, except after the fact. I loved that show! Well sweetie, it sounds like you’d have a lot to share too, do you remember the first concert you went to? We have another great thread Robin started 2 years ago that’s all about first concert experiences
Take a look around and see if you’d like to add your own. :D In any case, if you decide to hang around and have any questions, feel free to ask: there’s always someone around to point you in the right direction. :D Take care Becky and thanks again for sharing. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Yeah it was amazing i do have pictures from that too....somewhere...real ones not digital LOL but i knew about it because since I was young I followed both of them and just like Michaels tours, I always found a way to go to the Stars On Ice Tour as well. My husband was in the Air Force for about 10 years and we lived in Alaska and Las Vegas, before moving back here to buffalo.....so when i found out that my two favorite men were going to be together I had to come back for a visit!!! So i built a trip around that show!!! I sat front row in one of the corners and Michael was right in front of me at times....it was great. I still cry when I hear him sing "you dont know me" because when kurt skated to that live....WOW and one of the best parts was sitting there afterwards, because it was taped for TV....was going back and having them do the out takes.....it was very relaxed and real....I was very lucky to go to that one!
