Row Q, dead center. I believe that's about 15th row or so depending on how they set it up.

spontaneously decided to go last night, really just wanted to get in the door and got tickets on stubhub for $6. saw a bunch of Cadillac t-shirts, and a few orange ones. I thought I saw Jim Neff, but wasnt certain. According to the Cadillac page he was present last night. Solid show

More details later as well for me.

Heading to Saginaw tomorrow with the wife.

My son and I were in Grand Rapids.

M&G was outstanding.

A nice couple who purchased Gene's axe bass asked us to come back stage with them for the Gene M&G. My son got photos holding the axe bass with Gene. The couple shall remain nameless, but they know who they are and it WAS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!!!!

Saw/spoke with Jim Neff on our way to our seats. He stopped me because I was wearing one of the black Cadillac shirts.

Show was GREAT. My son and I both enjoyed it more than the DTE show in 2014.

Paul sounded great.

Paul, Tommy, and GENE moved all around the stage last night.

Alot of smiles on Paul's face throughout the night.

They first played Grand Rapids in 1974.

They last played Grand Rapids in 2003.

All in all, a solid/exciting performance and night!

Rock on.

:twisted:

I was able to take a few good photo's, I hope you all enjoy. My wife and I were at the Meet & Greet as well. We had our little one with us for the acoustic set. I had my children's book I've had since grade school signed for him. It was an interesting conversation piece to say the least.

Great photos @ludzil. Letting them sign that childrens book is awesome. It is now a very special piece of memorabilia. What did they say about the book?

Great show.
Same setlist when I saw them in Nebraska a few weeks ago.
Gene and Paul were having fun (I'm sure Tommy & Eric were too, I could see it in G and P face is all).
Weird that next us, 4 or so seats were not occupied.
Paul's new purple mirrored guitar is beautiful. Weird it's taken him this long to have it.
Ended up getting 4 Gene picks and one Paul.

Outstanding shots!! I left my camera at home, all I had was my cell phone, and some turned out OK. But would have been better with my Nikon Cool Pix which, surprisingly, takes very good photos. Being in Row Q, which I counted was the actual 15th row, I would have likely been able to get some decent shots with it.

Where was your seat in the M+G rows? In 2014 I was first row dead center in Chicago. I got excellent pictures from that show and even the Alpine Valley show the night before it from 20 rows or so back.

My bad. I thought they were playing it every show. 16 songs just seems too short to me.

Hey guys.. Its Moon from Legendaryrockinterviews.com ...I could have sworn I had an ID here years ago, but I couldn't find my login. Maybe an admin can help? Anyhow..

I photographed the Saginaw show this past Monday. Amazing show from start to finish.. My photos are at the link below.. This shoot was ok.. Not the best due to the height of this stage. I have shot them before at Pine Knob where the stage is only a few feet high...I may shoot the Toledo show as well.. Depends on my schedule..Will know soon... also, supposed to have Tommy Thayer calling me soon for an interview. Had one scheduled last week but he got busy and has to reschedule .. so playin the waiting game on that.

The book was an interesting conversational piece. I asked all of the members to sign it for my little guy and told them it was a book I used to check out at the library while in grade school and eventually bought it. Paul looked at it and had a puzzled kind of look on his face and signed it. Tommy said, "Creatures of the Night?, What's this?"
Gene was very interesting. I asked him to sign it and he looked it over. "I have never seen this before, what is this?". I told him was children's book I used to read. He thumbed through it and really looked it over and told me how it looked familiar. He gave my little guy a pat on the head and we talked for a bit. Good stuff.
