Billy Squier - 2009 Tour

Billy Squier is hitting the road this summer. I admit, this is one classic rocker that I never saw live and I haven’t really thought much about since 1994. The last “new” Billy Squier disc I purchased was Hear & Now, his fantastic 1991 release. Once in college, I just sort of forgot about Billy. I think I need to see him live and reconnect with my long last pal. Tickets range between $45 and $60 so the show is affordable, but I don’t know how he is in concert. If I do attend, expect a full report.

There’s a big gap in the itinerary between August and September, so more shows will probably be added to the list.

Just an observation:
Isn't the name spelled "Squier"

Well, cousin Ryo feels like a fool right now. Thank you for the observation. As you can see, I went back and fixed that mistake. Apologies to Billy and many thanks to anonymous.

So, I'm curious. Did you attend any of Squier's shows? I have travelled far and wide to see the man perform at 8 different shows. Yes, he still looks, sounds, and performs as fabulous as always!

I was very, very close to attending the Atlantic City show on July 11th, but alas, I never made it. From what you're telling me, I am going to have to make him a priority for the future.
