Akron, Ohio- The seminal progressive rock group and super producer Alan Parsons stopped by what can only described as the venue to beat all venues yesterday and rocked the house. The Akron Civic Theater was filled to capacity from the front to the back and on top in the balcony .This majestic venue was the perfect backdrop for a night filled with awe and wonder wrapped around notes , scales and melodies.
The night started as a best of as Alan and his band played some of their most well known and loved songs.A total of 24 songs culminating forty years of music delighted fans both near and far as I met people that drove almost five hours to see this performance. The second half of the show was the 40th anniversary of the ” I Robot ” played in its entirety .
Alan does not just rest on his laurels as he is still writing and recording , teaching master recording classes and recently won an award. He won reissue of the year from the Progressive Music Awards for ” Eye In The Sky ” and best of all this was a fan nominated and voted award .
The band is
P.J. Olsson- Vocals
Danny Thompson- Drums
Guy Erez- Bass
Tom Brooks- Keyboards
Todd Cooper- Saxophone /Vocals
Dan Tracey – Guitars
Jeff Kollman-Lead Guitar
I honestly can say this is probably the best band performance I saw in 2018 and I highly recommend them , To see if they are coming to a twon near you please see the official website at http://www.alanparsons.com
