Anyone seen the 2013 Bonnie Raitt Slipstream Tour?
We have tix for the 18 Oct show @ The Midland in KC, MO. A venue we've never been to.
Was wondering what the opinion has been on the band Bonnie's put together for Slipstream.
I've followed Mike Finnigan, a Kansas boy, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Finnigan since ~ 1970, w/Finnigan & Wood. Saw him w/Phantom Blues Band here in Manhattan a few years back. He was amazed at the condition of the Crazed Hipsters LP I asked him to autograph!
Have seen Raitt twice: 1975, Wichita, & early 80s in St. Louis. Been a groupie now for 38 years.

At the age of 60, I was surprised at all the elderly in attendance @ The Midland. The concert was great, the encore especially.
As we checked into the Hotel Phillips, keyboardist Mike Finnigan was there at the desk & I spoke with him for several minutes. He tells me he was originally from Ohio & came to KS to attend KU. I'm likely to promptly forget that fact.
Per Marc Cohn, the opener, they all dined @ the Philips, unfortunately we had reservations @ the Bristol Seafood Grill.
We nearly didn't make the trip, as it was snowing hard before we left Manhattan. Had there been any wind (in KS?), my wife would've turned the Xterra around. Great 30th Anniversary present to ourselves.
