Gene & Tommy on the cherry pickers

That’s gotta be an absolute thrill riding on those things!
Confetti flying everywhere, explosions going off, 10,000 people below you singing the RnR national anthem, what a rush! 8)

Yeah for a number of years, the stage was a designated no-confetti zone; they shot it just out over the crowd. In don’t know if that was so random pieces wouldn’t stick to Gene’s sweaty forehead during the finale; or if it was acting like airborne kindling embers with the pyro going off.

That’s one of the high points of the show


but I do wonder why the arms don’t roll to the back of the track like they did with the tour first started



but it’s still very cool, just rotating from the stationary position

You mean thanks to Michael Jackson long before that, KISS before that and probably 7 other acts between all those! 8)
