Here is what the press saying...
Las Vegas Sun - April 02, 2007 …gives rave reviews regarding Stone's recent appearance in Las Vegas 03/31/07. His voice was strong and he seemed charged up at the experience, even moving to the edge of the stage to greet his amped-up fans. It was Stone's first Vegas show since a 1972 appearance at the Las Vegas Convention Center and who had since become a virtual recluse for two decades.
Christopher Pratt of Elements Entertainment Los Angeles says about Sly's show 03/31/07… The show was incredible, they did all the hits and the crowd went nuts. It was an amazing show and sure to launch your new tour in style. Sly was the consummate professional and we had a great experience working with him. Shy Sly Stone picks S.J. for show.
