Tour Bus Diaries: We Love Detroit!

By Adam Savage

Adam and Jamie return to Detroit for the third time and is still awestruck by the list of amazing people who have played at Detroit's Fox Theater.

[Note from Norm: Adam and Jamie actually performed in Detroit on Dec 8th, so this was before their stops in Richmond and Bethleham on Dec 11th and 12th, respectively. Sorry for the time warp!]

Detroit! We love this place. I've played the Fox in Detroit three times now, and it's never enough. What a gorgeous hall. Insane. Just check this place out in the large photo below the fold.

Bow chicka wow wow. That is one HELL of a lovely place. ELVIS played here. EVERYONE played here. More everyone than the Beacon Theatre, even. Look at some of the signatures I found on the walls:

Eric Idle!!

The Fox Theater is simply gorgeous.

Outside it was cold and there were genuine flurries, the first I've seen this season anywhere (they've been chasing us since we left Calgary).

This was the view out the window of my bus behind the theater. I have only one question: What the hell hit the bottom of the fire escape? That must have been someone’s worst day ...

With our name in lights like this it was time to put on a good show.

And so we did our best. The crowd was terrific. I love this town.

Jamie tried singing again. With predictable results. (Sigh.)

With that performance under our belts, it was time to fly to a much-needed couple of days off.

While on tour for the Behind the Myths stage show, Adam is blogging about his adventures and exploration of each city he visits. Here are his previous entries:
