Rock legend Joe Walsh just Rocked The Red. An incredible show with nine fellow artists and along with Joe they showcased a mere glimpse of the catalogue of stellar hits he has created over the last five decades. From The James Gang to The Eagles and then some songs from his many solo albums, Joe Walsh showed he still has All His Ducks in a Row to perform like only his master can.
I was talking with other guests before the show like I always do. Plus Rene from merchandise, David from The Red Theatre LIVE events crew and many others in attendance , all were excited to see Joe in an intimate show at Red’s. The neat gentleman sitting to my right said he first saw Joe with Ringo Star in ’89. Same with me. Clarence Clemons was there as was Levon Helm and Joe Walsh performing in Ringo’s All Star Band. Sadly both have passed. Guess what, Joe was good friends with Levon and did a special dedication to Levon with the song Released and is very sad Levon is gone. We all are. RIP Levon. Heaven Has A Hell of a Band !
Joe’s band had three spectacular back up singers, an amazing Guitarist, Keyboard player, Bass player, two Drummers and a percussionist in the middle. Ten artists including Joe. I will put in all the names as soon as I can get all of them. Your band is Stellar Joe !
Joe had us all air guitaring and air drumming to many of his Classics. Life Of Illusion, Walk Away, Turn To Stone, Funk 49, Life’s Been Good and of course the super classic Rocky Mountain Way . These are but a few. Every song he had a guitar switch. Well Done to the sound crew and the guitar techs ! Every song was perfect. That Red Robinson Theatre, like the River Rock Show Theatre has the best acoustics in Western Canada. The staff and facilities are second to none.
