I PLAYED THE USF SUNDOME IN TAMPA, FLORIDA WITH OUTRIDER

Settling into the Outrider tour, and by this, our third date, the band were playing really well together but these early dates were threatended by hurricanes Florence and Gilbert, with imminent arrival predicted. Here at Tampa, with threat of elemental attack, we played with audience slightly down on the expected turn out. I had played the Atlantic 40th only recently and it wasn’t quite as I had hoped. And this performance may have affected the attendance of early shows along with the hurricane. It didn’t take long for the shows to gain momentum and the venues to start filling, once the word had got out that I was alive and kicking.
