Peter Wolf Live In Boston

July 25, 2017

Peter Wolf and The Midnight Travellers

Boston TD Gardens, 20/7/17

View: Elevated Section, Stage Left

Supporting Tom Petty at this 17,500 seater stadium ex-J Geils band vocalist and long-time Boston resident Peter Wolf was afforded a full hour set and proper lights and sound. His five piece band rose to the occasion and played like headliners. The set cherry-picked jewels from Wolf’s solo career such as Piece Of Mind and Wastin’ Time but the biggest response was reserved for Geils classics such as the closing trio of Start All Over Again, Give It To Me and Lookin’ For A Love. Tom West played some tasteful organ and Duke Levine and Kevin Barry exchanged unflashy but effective guitar parts throughout, supported by Tom Arey on drums and Kevin Barry on bass. Wolf has moved with the times – the rap that preceded a mighty Musta Got Lost now has the lovers communicating by text message and the bottle of bubbles that Wolf totes on stage has a screw top (we were very near the stage).   What hasn’t changed is Wolf’s glam bohemian chic, onstage exuberance and masterful performance. Simply the coolest 71 year old on the planet.

And now how the review appeared in Record Collector magazine (October 2017):
