A Night of Symphonic Rock
Events Center - Seneca Niagara Casino
April 28, 2017
|Concert Review - by Bob Silvestri
A Night of Symphonic Rock, a melding of classic rock artists performing with a full orchestra, paid a visit to the Events Center located in the Seneca-Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, NY on April 28, 2017. The show featured four classic rock all-stars, Lou Gramm of Foreigner, Mickey Thomas of Starship, Terri Nunn of the band Berlin and Robin McAuley of Survivor, augmented by a band of veteran touring and studio aces from Las Vegas and Los Angeles and a full orchestra. The first set of the two hour show featured the band warming up with Journey's "Separate Ways" before giving way to McAuley and a blistering version of Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir". It was on this song that you realized just how good this mix of orchestra and rock band was going to sound. He also performed another Journey song "Faithfully" and the Eagles "Hotel California" before performing his signature tune "Eye of The Tiger". Next up was Terri Nunn who stole the show with her voice and timeless good looks. Her set consisted of Berlin's "No More Tears" and "The Metro" before closing with a soaring "Take My Breath Away" from the Top Gun soundtrack.
After a brief intermission Mickey Thomas from Starship hit the stage and offered a few songs from his vast catalog of hits including "Find Your Way Back", "Sara", "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and "We Built This City". Rochester native Lou Gramm, one of the finest rock voices of all time and still in fine form, brought out the hits with "Feels like the First Time", "I Wanna Know What Love Is" replete with requisite audience sing along, "Cold as Ice" and "Jukebox Hero" before closing with "Hot Blooded". The four singers returned for a group rendition of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" that sent the crowd home happy. A highly polished show made better by the artists and their timeless music A Night of Symphonic Rock is a must see show.
