We went to the Bryan Adams/Foreigner show last night. We had lawn seats so I couldn't make out great detail, but Bryan Adams' backline had not one, not two, but THREE (count em) Marshall Plexi FULL stacks. I'm pretty sure they were plexis. They all had the short panel vs the panel that goes all the way across. The lead tones were so thick you could like the syrup off of them, and when he'd hit those big ringing open chords with his Gretsch, that grindy "karaaaaaang" just sounded like heaven. Really great show. Then there was Foreigner. Musically they were great. Vocalist was awesome, old Mick was smokin' on the old Les Paul, and they has Jason Bonham on the kit. BUT...not an amp in sight and the lack of that dimension coming from the stage really left me sortof flat. I've seen photos of Mick playing Marshalls on stage in recent shows, but the stage was clean here, and I swear it sounded like they were playing thru PODs. Don't know, maybe the amps were side stage, but tone wise, Bryan Adams just destroyed them. For me it was a bit of a let down because some of those Foreigner tracks have some of the best crunchin' Marshall tones I've ever heard on them. Anyhow, thought I'd share because I tried explaining this to my friends and they just gave me this blank look One other thing that was cool about that show, Jason Bonham was playing what appeared to be one of his dad's old kits. It was a clear Ludwig Vistalite (not amber though, clear, never saw pictures of John playing a clear one though). It had the 3 overlapping rings on the front head, Bonzo's "symbol". Anyhow, all in all, a worthwhile evening!
