Peter Wolf ROCKS Tupelo Music Hall

Welcome Back PETER WOLF!!

Londonderry, NH May 9, 2010
 

Peter Wolf, the legendary front man for the J. Geils Band, is on the road promoting his new CD “Midnight Souvenirs”. He opened the tour Mother’s Day evening at the Tupelo Music Hall in Londonderry NH.

His 20 plus set list included many from “Souvenirs” including: “I Don’t Want To Know”, “Thick as Thieves” which he prefaced by saying it was about “the music industry but let’s not go there”, “The Green Fields of Summer”, and his first single off the CD which he recorded with Shelby Lynne “Tragedy”.

He also sang a few from his previous solo release “Sleepless” including “Growin’ Pain” which he opened with, and one of two encores with “Nothing But the Wheel” which melted into “Musta Got Lost”.
 
Wolf dug back into his past further and really got the SOLD OUT crowd rocking with the old Geils tunes he performed. “Homework”, “NiteTime”, “Love Stinks”, and “Give it to Me”. Wolf mentioned numerous times that this was the maiden voyage of the Midnight Travelers but it was truly hard to tell that this band hasn’t been together for a long time. The Traveler's are made of some very well known musicians: Duke Levine-guitars, Jon Carroll-keys, Marty Richards-drums, Marty Ballou-bass, and Kevin Barry-guitars. 
The tour moves on to Northampton’s Iron Horse May 11 and Portland’s Port City Music Hall May 12. It moves to the Midwest then returns to New England May 22 to the Infinity Music Hall Norwalk CT May 22, Providence RI Lupo’s May 23 and Boston’s Wilbur Theatre May 25.

The Roy Sludge duo opened. They played 30 minutes and had a Rock-a-billy sound that really got the crowd psyched for Peter Wolf.
