They are touring without a band, so it's Ron and Russell singing their catalog cabaret style. As deep as my respect is for these guys, I don't think I'd enjoy them without a band. Tempted to buy a ticket if there are any left on the show day just to support them, not to attend.

Anyone have a review of these gigs? Unbelieveable-- been waiting years to see them and I just miss them when they pass through my neck o' the woods.

I saw them at the Mountain Oasis Festival. I was kind of bored by them, frankly, but then again I am not a huge Sparks fan, so perhaps my opinion won't mean much to aficionados. They came off like a high-quality piano bar act. I would have much rather seen them with a full band.
