I was lucky enough to see the Cats on two of the dates during the '07 tour. Once as part of the ZZ Top bill at Red Rocks, and once on their own in Santa Fe. The show in Santa Fe, although an incredibly lame venue, was amazing. I have seen them many times over the years (dating back to 1982 when my mom took me to see them!), and they never disappoint! Even though Brian has had so much success on his own, there is something magic about seeing those three guys take the stage together, even now. I just want to say thanks for "bringin' it back again," and I hope that there may be more to come.

I saw them last summer, too, but in the Detroit area. I loved the concert, but I too was forced to see them in an incredibly lame venue. I hope that I never have to go to a concert there again. Luckily the Stray Cats are so incredibly awesome that it doesn't matter how awful the venue is. I absolutely LOVE seeing the BSO at the State Theatre (aka. The Fillmore) in Detroit during the wintertime. That is the best venue in Detroit for Brian to play. It is the perfect capacity and the best atmosphere. Even though the Stray Cats played a lame venue, I feel extremely lucky to have see them at all (being barely born the first time around). It was great seeing Brian with Lee and Jim (nothing can compare).

I wish you all could have seen the Stray Cats-only show in Kansas City last summer. The energy there was unbelievable. Check out Tommy's photo archives for what are simply some of the best Stray Cats photos of the entire tour:

Kansas City - 31st July 2007.

I love catching Lee and Brian's solo shows (I have yet to see one of Slim Jim's side projects in person) but seeing Stray Cats live for the first time was a big highlight in my life. I hope they don't wait too long to bring it back again!

A few people here may know that I saw the Cats on July 28 in Minneapolis.

With a little help from Tommy regarding the schedule for the night, I managed to plan the ultimate surprise for my girlfriend, and proposed to her about 1 hour before the Cats went on stage.


Rickabilly was planning on being there, but was unable to make it to MN, but we still used his "presence" in the plan to make my fiancee think that Rickabilly was still going to make it.

At the Hard Rock Cafe in Minneapolis, probably just before the Pretenders took stage, I got down on one knee in front of everyone on the outdoor patio and my friends taking photographs and popped the question.

We are getting married Sep 20 of this year.

That, and then the Stray Cats made July 28, 2007 the greatest night ever.

I was also at the Santa Fe show and I have to concur, the show was great but the venue was horrible. A casino where no alcohol is served? WTF is up with that? I also felt that the audience energy was somewhat subdued by the staleness of the room. It seemed like the kind of place that should be hosting a sales seminar rather than a rock concert. But I'm still grateful that I got to see them at their own show rather than as just an opening act.

I actually had 3rd row seats to see them at that RedRocks show, but sold my ticket so I could go to Santa Fe instead. How was it? Did I make the right decision? I really love Red Rocks and have traveled there a number of times to see a wide variety of musical acts, but I felt I really had to see the Cats do a headlining gig rather than an opening set.

I was lucky enough to see the Stray Cats in Indianapolis and BSO in Aurora this year. I am looking forward my next show...no matter how lame the forum. I probably won't even notice. Smile

El Perro - The Santa Fe show was definitely the right choice. Much cooler to see a full headlining set. They were both amazing, but if you had to choose one, I think you got it right.

I was fortunate enough to see them as well in San Diego in 07 ! I HAVE NEVER EVER been to a concert where the people who arent even the headliners STOLE THE FREAKIN SHOW THE WAY THEY DID ! IT WAS AMAAAAAAZING !!!!!!!!!! Man what a complete WASTE for those guys not to be doing thier thing anymore ! I know Big Band was what Brian always wantd to do , ( dont get me wrong , I totally dig BSO aswell ) but , There was and STILL is something about that darn band that nobody can touch! I have NEVER seen a band with just 3 guys, just 3 simple instruments make real music the way they did , It is utterly AMAZING ! GOD , I WISH SOME ONE WOULD BE SMART ENOUGH TO PROMOTE A STRAY CATS REUNION.... Now is the time !

I saw them in Chicago and Jones Beach in 2007 - the sets were way too short.

I think from the reaction I saw in the crowds the Cats could carry their own tour
