Hi everyone! Believe it or not....I'm 99% sure I'm coming to the show!! We actually planned to eat at the Wheelhouse before the show. We've eaten there before and it's pretty good. I'm not sure how early I'll be able to get there, but I'll definitely look for everyone!!

Wow Amy, miracles never cease to exist!

We haven't formally announced a time, but I'm shooting to be there between 3:30 and 4:00pm.

:lol: You'll be waiting a long time brother.

The only thing I've ever played at casinos is roulette.

The whole night was an absolute blast. From the preshow get together at Wheelhouse, to the fun at the roulette tables and lastly the show itself. As Sue has already said, it's just so much fun to share these events with good friends. Hanging out with Cherb, JD, Tony, Veronica, Sue, Sharon and Cyndi was the best. And of course, whenever Ted and Steve join us, we always have a ton of laughs (and shots for some). :lol:

I admit, I was unsure about the Rivers as a venue from the pictures I'd seen. It looked like the stage was pretty low and wouldn't offer the opportunity to stand in front. That wasn't the case at all, however. The stage was a nice height and offered the ability for fans to get up close and personal which is the best way to enjoy a Donnie Iris & The Cruisers show. I thought the sound was good also. That coupled with all the casino festivities and everything, I'd love to see the band play there again in future years. It was a lot of fun.

There was a who's who of PTers in attendance... some I only ran into briefly but nonetheless it was still great to see them and chat if only for a bit. In addition to those mentioned above, other PTers seen on the premises include AmyD (and Paul), llkingcool (Les), titan (roger) and Vanjay & Kacy.

Set list:

Agnes
Do You Compute?
That's The Way Love Oughta Be
I Can't Hear You
Your Touch
Injured In The Game Of Love
Sweet Merilee
This Time It Must Be Love
Ridin' Thunder
King Cool
Love Is Like A Rock
Ah! Leah!
The Rapper
With A Little Help From My Friends

The big surprise of the night as Sue has mentioned was the band doing a full version of "With A Little Help From My Friends" Joe Cocker style in place of "Hush". The band abso-friggen-lutely KILLED it! Wow! A fantastic way to end a fantastic show. I hope they keep this in the set for the foreseeable future.

I'm sure glad that there are 3 more shows coming up within the next month, because I've had way too much fun at the last few!

Great time at the show! I really liked the venue. I saw on Facebook that it was the largest crowd ever for any of their concerts at the Rivers! Apparently they even had to close the parking garage for awhile because it was full!! It's always fun to see my friends that I miss in between shows. One other suprise - Joe Grushecky joined the guys onstage for Love is Like a Rock. After the show the casino was soooo crowded! Then, when we left, we actually had to stand in line to get on the elevators to the parking garage!! Donnie & the guys can still pack the house!!!!

U:) You're right Amy, I checked their Facebook page. The one employee said largest crowd EVER at the Rivers. Lots of rave reviews for the show too.

Donnie and the boys STILL deliver.

I planned to mention that in my review and somehow missed it. Thanks!

An error occurred when trying to view Cyndi's video! :problem: Sounds like everyone had a great time, cool! To much driving for me already this summer, burned out from all of it. Nice closing surprise song, where'd they pull that one from?! Can't even believe it's August already, too. WOW, where did the time go, way to fast. So much to do, not enough time.........

Mike 8-)

P.S. Glad to hear AmyD made it, WAY cool!!!!!!

Pretty impressed with the sound quality of your videos, Cyndi.
What kind of video camera are you using?
