On friday, 11.11.11, I enjoyed Steve Lukather on his All’s Well That End Well tour live on stage at the Markthalle in Hamburg. He was accompanied by Eric Valentine on drums, Renee Jones on bass and the marvelous Steve Weingart on keyboards. As a huge fan of TOTO and Steve himself, it is needless to say, it was a great show.
