"Thanks to DGM Live’s heads up on February 2, I was able to attend the free Adrian Belew Power Trio gig at Sweetwater Sound in Fort Wayne, Indiana, last evening with my wife and son. Wow, what a show!
This was advertised as a demonstration of the new Parker Adrian Belew Signature Fly Deluxe ($10,000, but a 15% discount available last night), with some ABPT tunes following, but it turned into a full-blown concert. 250 well-wishers crammed the performance theater, and an overflow room was filled with others who watched via closed-circuit video.
The Power Trio played ten of the twelve songs from the Adrian’s recent Side Four album (all but "Drive" and "Thela Hun Gingeet") over the course of 90 minutes.

Three of a Perfect Pair (Yeah, again!)
"Dinosaur" was awesome! Adrian, Julie, and Eric then hung around afterwards to greet the fans, sign some autographs, and pose for some pictures. I am pretty sure they had as much fun during and after the performance as the rest of us.
Thanks, again, for keeping us up to speed with your DGM Live News!"
Sounds like a great event for sure.
