1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    I say lads, anyboody catch the show last nite? I got my usual complimentary industry tickets. However... they seem to have forgotten that I can see much better down front of the Public Music Hall in Cleaveland and not top balcony.

    No matter, it short order me and my date were able to get down where we belong - close enough to scare the band without having to smell the manure from the scant NY-NJ music biz types who deem the HoF show worthy of attending.

    The burning question on my mind: is Tom actually playing a 12 string bass? That custom hollow body has a headstock that looks like a a helicopter balled a hay baler and the baby was cast out Alien-style from my granddad's tackle box to attach itself on the end of a bass. But I did not detect 12 strings from my monitor view from Nielsen's stage left perch... probably just my damaged retinas from scoping the truly lickable Cleaveland babes.

    ..and good grief.. I have seen these guys now twice in 3 months. I gotta just lay these cards down... their sound is serviceable... for a B list Agora touring band - loud and alot of bilious bottom. I hope the DVD sounds better and the re-mixer doesn't have to get a copy band to re-record. The performance was great. Rick needs to sit out more prominently. I mean...he needs to own it... and someone please turn down that bass.

    Robin was just killing it last nite. I saw them in Saint Petersbug and he was fine. The "family affair" aspect was a little distracting towards the end... but last nite he was awesome in a way that lead rawk throats of advancing years do not have any reason to sound as awesome.... and the man can sing the pants off a groupie at 50 paces... trust me, I know it can be done.

    Cheap Trick kinda puzzles me.. they seem to struggle to break free from their own gravity these days. Daxx sounded best to me when he was all on his own and able to stretch out... like the intro on "I want you to Want me" or the intro to "Surrender".... I never saw Bun E. so I can't comment on the lack of his presence other than to say that if he brought a lighter, pop-y-er touch, that is what the lads are missing.

    another fine night in Cleaveland... next time they better get the tickets and limo right the first time... and I want Saba when I go through the Sushi line, not pickled shark.

    Great band and show both times I've seen, and, yes, Bun E's personal touch is missing.
    In my view, with Bun E. they put on a better show.
    Robin Z is amazing. Dare I say, one of the best rock voices of all time, and still can bring it....

    yeah, and there is the double typo of 'Cleaveland' in the text...if OP wants Saba instead of pickled Shark... he should drop the 'a' in Cleveland. :rolleyes:

    The OPs post could literally be scrutinized and debated for centuries as to what he's actually saying.

    I thought this was going to be a review of a Cheap Trick tribute band.

    "The Ohio." Are you referring to the river?

    This quasi-review of the Cheap trick Concert should be captioned;

    Tom Peterson invented the 12 string bass back in '70's.
