Live In Houston captures the super group Velvet Revolver in 2005 while the band was touring in support of their Grammy Award winning release Contraband. As a fan Velvet Revolver, and the previous projects of the individual band members, I was extremely excited to sit down and watch this DVD. Let me tell you it does not disappoint. I never had the opportunity to see Velvet Revolver in a live setting; damn did I miss a good thing.

Dazzling, captivating and electrifying! That is the only way to explain the DVD that captures this legendary alternative band live on stage at the Voodoo Experience, Halloween Night, 2009.

The means of transport for this trek was Bruce Dickinson’s very own customized Boeing 757, Ed Force One. This plane carried the band, crew and 12 tons of stage equipment while being piloted by none other than its owner and the band’s vocalist, Bruce Dickinson.

My very first writing assignment for my university newspaper – all the way back in 2005 – was a review of a Russell Peters show. The comedian was performing on campus, and through the whole friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend scenario, I managed to score the comped tickets to take in the show with a lovely young lady so long as I wrote about it.
