Default Peter Cetera

I don't know if this belong in the Chicago thread, but since he hasn't been part of Chicago(and he hates talking about them) for over 30 years, I decided to make a thread about him.

Has anyone seen him in concert? He's playing in Biloxi, Mississippi on September 22nd and I want to see him. He's playing at the same venue I was going to see Kenny Loggins with my friend back in March, but of course I couldn't go because I broke my ankle two weeks prior to the concert.

Does he put on a good show? It looks like its going to sell out. The bottom part of the theater is already sold out and they only have the top part available. His tickets are very reasonable(I have no idea how much the bottom part was. I think I saw 75.00). The top are between 45.00 and 55.00.

I've been to the Beau Rivage a few times and there's not a bad seat in the place which I like about them. Plus they have screens so you would able to see him instead of seeing him as an ant.

Ooh, you should go Shun. Read the online reviews at Ticketmaster or wherever else - they're all good. People say his voice is the same as ever.

I guess his people don't update the web site much; the 9/22 date isn't listed:

I heard he puts on a great show and I've seen some clips from concerts and even specials(he did a show in Chile this past March. So that's an updated show). A friend of mine and her husband went to see him this past April(she had a video on her facebook page and he sounded good) and they also got a picture with him(I guess that's the advantage of being married to a famous singer. You can sometimes get backstage LOL. They were still up in the nosebleed section. LOL). His voice is still great.

Yeah. I notice on his website that it wasn't on there. I looked on there first after I saw links to buy tickets for the Biloxi show on other websites, but its on the Beau Rivage website and they made an event for this show on facebook.

I don't think they would sell tickets for a show that's not going to happen. Basically half the theater is already sold and I think its going to be a sold out show too.

I'm going to go. I can't get the tickets next week when I get paid because I have to use that money for something else(I wish I could pushed that back, but my next payday after next week is on a Monday), but I will definitely try to buy them at the end of this month. I wish I knew earlier he was coming so I could had gotten tickets in the center section, but I'm happy at the top. You really can't see that well at the bottom and I was mostly moving side to side when I saw Donny and Marie there this past December because somebody taller than me was in front of me.

The seats at the top are stadium style and you don't have to worry about not being able to see the singers because of a tall person is in front of you. The seats at the bottom are straight and you're screwed if somebody in front of you is taller.

I'm so excited for you! I hope you get good seats. I'm only 5'6" and I hate when a tall person (or people!) sit in front of me.

You must tell us all about it afterwards.

Peter's show was amazing. This show was one of his symphony orchestra concert. So no electric. Just acoustics, strings, percussion and horns. LOL

I was way at the top. Almost at the last row, but I had a great view. Peter kinda looked like an ant, but it wasn't too bad. You can still see his face. The Beau Rivage also had screens. So you can see Peter very close. Also. Can I say that Peter has the most beautiful eyes. I'm a sucker for guys with beautiful eyes. I have no idea what color they are. Sometimes they look blue. Sometimes they look green. Either way his eyes are beautiful.

The show starts 10 minutes late. Before Peter and his band came out, the symphony orchestra played a medley of Peter's solo and Chicago hits. They sounded very good. Then Peter came out. I have to say Peter still has it. He still has that beautiful voice nobody has.

I was kinda disappointed that he didn't sing Restless Heart. He usually opens with that song, but he didn't with this song.

Other than that, I had a wonderful time. I was soo not disappointed in the show. I'm so glad I bought a ticket to see his show and I would definitely see it again. It was soo worth the 3 hours to Biloxi. Once the show was over, I got back on the road and took that long 3 hour drive back home. I took pictures, but he was coming out whitewash in the pictures and even on the screen, but I could get clearer pictures of his band. Darn spotlight. LOL

I follow Peter on Instagram and Peter posted some pictures from the beach. So Peter decides to funny. He posted funny pictures of him on the beach and found a doll without a head. He was trying to be a reporter. It was funny. You had to go to his Instagram page to see what he was saying. It was soo funny. I really loved that he's very active on his Instagram page.

I was at the gas station getting gas for my car so I won't have to do it when I left and saw he did an interview for The Biloxi Sun Herald. So I bought it and that's my little souvenir.

Here's the setlist.
Symphony orchestra playing a medley of Peter's songs
No Explanation
Baby what a big surprise
After all
Glory of love
You're the inspiration
One more woman
Introduces the band right here
I wanna take forever tonight
If you leave me now
Stay the night
Next time I fall
Hard habit to break
Hard to say I'm sorry
25 or 6 to 4

Encore:
Have you ever been in love

I'm super jealous! Many thanks for the detailed review, Miss Shun. I love the song "Restless Heart" too, it's lovely. Was the concert kinda short? He's in his 70s now, must keep that in mind.

"Have You Ever Been in Love" the Leo Sayer song?! I'll have to look into this.

Yeah. It was short. Maybe an hour and a half.

Yep. Have You Ever Been In Love is a Leo Sayer. I just looked it up.

Does he speak to the audience much?

I heard that he's a charming, funny guy (in person). Do you know if he's still on Facebook? He used to be, but now I can't find him.

His brother is on FB, and he's a cutie https://www.facebook.com/KennyCetera

OMG, the brother is a singer in a Chicago tribute band! The irony.

Yes. He does talk to the audience. He is very funny. He's got a great sense of humor. I tried looking on Facebook, but I didn't find a page. Like I said, he's got an Instagram and he does updates it a lot. Its him who update his Instagram instead of some representative.

I heard about his brother, Kenny. He looks just like Peter. Its funny. Here's his brother Kenny with dark hair and brown eyes while Peter was brown blondish hair with green or blue eyes. Other than those differences, they look just alike. I know Peter has 7 siblings. He's the second oldest and had two brothers in the music business. I wonder how long Kenny is. He's probably in his 50s.
