Fly Like An Eagle

First vist in a long while to Manchester Apollo saw the Pieman and Mark Shed watch the most excellent Steve Miller Band in concert. A rare performer on these shores it was great to catch this gig supporting the release of his first studio album in 17 years, Bingo!

The venue was ok, a bit tatty but the sound was good. No support but that didn't matter. Five piece band including Mr Miller himself with no dedicated Bassist. Right from the start to the finish it was excellent with a variety of material from the new album and plenty of the "old" stuff including Take The Money and Run, Wild Mountain Honey, Swingtown, RockNMe, Fly Like and Eagle, Jungle Love, The Joker, Seasons........... 

Mr Miller was superb with more guitar changes than I have ever seen well supported by an excellent band with Mr Sonny Charles singing and dancing, not too dissimilar to the Pieman at times. Many thanks to Mark Shed for making it a brilliant night out.
