PiercingMetal Thoughts: Alright then. If you somehow missed this years “Hand Cannot Erase” tour then I feel sorry for you because you missed out on one of the best sounding musical experiences of the year. I’m not speaking lightly here and I see a little over 100 shows a year so I know what I am saying. Oh yeah and the album from which that tour was assembled was pretty darned extraordinary as well but I had to say that watching the band deliver it all with over the top skill and resounding melody was one of my own highlights of the musical year 2015. Wilson is an artist whose capable of painting in vast musical colors and creating spectacular masterpieces. I’m curious as to how he is going to surpass his “Hand Cannot Erase” album but I’m very interested in hearing the upcoming “4.5” release just the same. It’s going to be cool as hell to watch this be done in the incredible Beacon Theatre and I cannot wait to return to that place since the last time I was there was for Nightwish. I’ll suggest that the most interested folks get on the point as soon as 12/4 hits so they end up with the best possible tickets. This will be “An Evening With” setting so no time wasted on openers and with Wilson you really don’t need that distracting your musical head. So what do you readers think of this news? Have you been following this artists work at all or will this be your first go at one of his events? Let me know in the comments.
