I am going to see the Hair Nation tour in Chicago tonight ....

Post by EyeDocOfRock » Thu Oct 25, 2018 8:52 am

A friend of mine from college who lives in Ft. Wayne , Indiana called me over the weekend and asked if I wanted to go see Jack Russell and the Bullet Boys ( and Enuff z Nuff, although I have Zero interest in Enuff z Nuff) in Chicago tonight ...I said , " Sure, if you are willing to drive 3 hours here and then another hour into Chicago, I am in for the show.".. the show tonight is at the House of Blues in Chicago , which is always a GREAT place to see a show .... it's gonna be a way late night for me , so I ll post my review tomorrow ....

I hope you didn't pay for tickets. They will probably be begging to get people off the street in there. Please take pictures of the crowd.

My review of the show last night .... Chicago House of Blues is always such a cool place for a concert ...

The venue was about 70% full ... and yes Enuff Z Nuff is a Chicago based band ...

Bullet Boys opened the show with kinda in your face Jam , Marq's vocals were a little muffled to begin with , but sound guy got that fixed pretty quickly . The band overall sound good and Mark was smiling and having a good time on stage . They played about 40 minutes

Enuff Z Nuff was second band on ... I am not really a fan of these guys ... with that said they actually sounded good and Chip did a lot of interacting with the crowd ... I don't know their music all that well , but overall the band was jamming... Chip and his guitar player got dick to ass with each other and Chip did a reach around and played the guitar players guitar for a solo for a few minutes from behind the guitar player and the guitar player reached behind himself and played Chip's bass that was slung around Chips neck..kinda weird but pretty cool at the same time ..the crowd really seemed to enjoy them ...they played about 45 minutes.

Jack Russell and his band came out last ...they played a lot of Great White's old hits ... jack sounded great .. the band sounded great ., jack is having some trouble moving , his neck looks like it's been fused maybe ... but I always enjoyed their music and Jack actually surprised me at how well he sounded ... overall Jack's Great White sounded really good .. Rock Me is one of my top 10 favorite songs of all time and they did a great job playing this song . They played about 90 minutes

So overall , the show started right on time .... The setup between acts was about 15-20 minutes between acts ... and Jack was very appreciative for the fan support .,,, Marq was having a great time on stage for his set ... And Chip well he is a unique character ... overall I was pleasantly surprised and entertained by these three acts !!!!

You're not supposed to be positive on this tour. It's supposed to be a train wreck BUT it's done (surprisedly) well for weeks.

Are all of Jack Russells ailments from addiction?
Does he have a disease? I'm curious to why he's in such bad shape.

Pills will fuck you up, man. He was so bad on them that when he had that stool incident years back when there was only one Great White, he perforated his bowel because of how bad the opioids were. And now he's 10 years older than that.

I saw him at The Rainbow eating next to me and I don't think I've ever seen a person look so bad in my life. He walks with a limp and his body is kind of tilted due to his neck issues, to me he literally looked like a human version of Yoda. He seemed in good spirits but man to go through life everyday in that condition has to be depressing. I don't know how in the hell he is on tour?

First off, 70%? Really? It's not like the place was empty, but there's no fucking way it was 70% full. Maybe 60%? Upstairs was nearly empty.

Second, how can you give a review of this show without mentioning Jack falling on his ass? Best part of the show!

I watched the video of that fall with white knuckles. He looks very unstable.
That said, I was shocked to see him moving around like that, given the last video I saw he was on a stool with a colostomy bag.
