They are taking an intermission. Fabulous harmony They have about a 50 piece orchestra. The garden is huge but they sound nice and powerful. All the seats have tv screens I like them a lot more than I expected

Interesting stories.
I love Alvin Lee.
More Alvin Lee / Ten Years After memories.

When I saw both them and The J. Geils Band for the first time ever at that show it was in a small gym at Assumption College in Worcester. At that point I don't think I've ever heard a Ten Years After record and J.Geils had not yet made their first one.

But shortly after the Woodstock movie came out. For me, Ten Years After was one of the three stars of it (the other two being The Who and Santana).

And, shortly after seeing the Woodstock movie, I got to see Ten Years After again. This time it was in Boston at a small but iconic club called The Boston Tea Party. It was actually across the street from the "Green Monster" wall of Fenway Park.

This time we were so excited to see Ten Years After that we showed up at 3:30 for an 8:30 show to make certain we'd be one of the closest to the stage. Those first two shows were in 1970. Saw them few more times afterward. Last saw the whole band again in 1999 in New Hampshire. They were as excellent that night as they were in 1970.

Did see Ten Years After sometime last decade but it was without Alvin Lee. It just did not make economic sense for him to make the trip to the United States. It was different with a young guitarist who did not try to be him but was himself good.

Not gonna lie. I had to Google Alvin Lee. I'm so out of the loop.

alvin was so fast , but not very tasteful as a guitarist in my opinion ..

joe walsh last night was amazing .. the eagles did a lot of james gang . not only did they have a 50 piece orchestra but they had a choir and a horn section for the james gang stuff .

no wonder the tickets were so expensive .. two tickets were 600 bucks . we wanted to kill the kids for getting us them . plus these were the cheaper seats . if it wasn't for the tv screens we had at the seats they would have looked like dots on stage . there were 21,000 seats and everyone was filled ..

this was the 3rd night there and during the week .. to sell out like that at these prices is amazing

Joe Walsh is better than most, although I admit that when he was my avatar a couple months ago it was because of the other Joe Walsh in the news.

By the way scratch my “I love Alvin Lee” post. I was thinking of Albert King. O0 BB’s lesser known “brother.“ Born Under a Bad Sign.

This is what brought him to United States national music consciousness regarding Ten Years After and him.

And, when I was the college DJ, I'd always close my show with this exact recording ("I'm Going Home!")

I would not like it as a musical experience. I see quite good local bands at almost next to nothing prices and I am many times leaning against the stage. Far more intimate experience than what you are describing. Plus, I'm allowed to take as many pictures as I want. I'll bet you were NOT allowed to bring in any of your camera equipment to last night's show.

How can one even tell these days? Don't need a camcorder to record video.
