Report: Chicago #2 Review
From: bowiechgo

I saw both the Tue and Wed night shows, and for a barn like venue such as the Rosemont I had no major sound complaints. Bowie's vocals were clear and direct from the main floor. My only complaint was the lack of Slick's guitar in the mix at some points in the show, which could have been relative to the stereo guitar mix the soundman was going for.

My big annoyance with the both the shows was the constantly out of sync video screens. I would rather not see the video screens at all than watch a disorienting out of sync feed. I was hoping someone would have had their shit together to get the feed right the second night, but no avail...

What an amazing show and fantabulous set list!!! I finally got the see Bowie in a small venue, and the woman I love said yes... I was, however, a bit surprised by the amount of people around me that didn't display an ounce of emotion during any of the songs. After looking at the Dublin set list, Friday could offer quite a few gems not played either night thus far, or perhaps some new songs rehearsed today... What are the chances of Bowie popping up at a club in the city Thursday evening????
