Mr Big “The Big Finish” with Special Guest Sebastian Bach

Last Wednesday, May 1, At the Estadio Obras, Buenos Aires Argentina, we had the big pleasure of enjoying an unforgettable night, the farewell tour of a band that marked an era, The Legendary “Mr Big” led by the great Eric Martin, whom we had the honor of interviewing in 2022.

Something highly anticipated of the night was about to begin, the great Sebastian Bach (former leader of “Skid Row”)

Opening the evening with “What Do I Got To Lose?” a recently released song, which will be part of his next studio album.

Going through great hits like “Here I Am”“Big Guns” and “Sweet Little Sister”Sebastian made the Obras stadium vibrate and explode.

Something nice, and sweet to highlight, is Sebastian reading a sheet to try to speak in Spanish to his fans, throughout the show.

Leaving for the closing of his wonderful performance three fundamental pieces in his career: “Monkey Business”, “I Remember You” and “Youth Gone Wild”.

With an intact voice and a shocking staging, he left us all on fire waiting for Mr Big.


What Do I Get to Lose? Here I Am, (Skid Row song), Big Guns (Skid Row song) (With ‘Wasted Time’ acapella while they solved some technical issues), Sweet Little Sister (Skid Row song), 18 and Life (Skid Row song), Piece of Me (Skid Row song), Everybody Bleeds, Slave to the Grind (Skid Row song), Rattlesnake Shake (Skid Row song), The Threat (Skid Row song), American Metalhead (PainmuseuM cover) (Renamed “Argentina Metalhead”), Monkey Business (Skid Row song), Tom Sawyer (Rush cover) (With ‘Monkey Business’ reprise), I Remember You (Skid Row song), Youth Gone Wild

The crowd was very expectant, the lights went out, and the band took the stage, Eric Martin, Paul Gilbert, Billy Sheehan, and Nick D’ Virgilio, Starting with the huge “Addicted to That Rush” song from their self-titled album “Mr Big” released in 1989. A huge cheer erupts from the crowd.

“Daddy”, “Brother”, “Lover”, “Little Boy”, “Alive and Kickin”, “Green Tinted Sixties Mind” blend into each other as the band effortlessly transitions between songs. 

Another slowish swingin’ track, Voodoo Kiss, exemplifies both guitarist’s prowess, and it’s effortless for these two virtuosos. 

The beautiful Just “Take My Heart” intro from Gilbert stirs the crowd for this huge ballad, and they sing it all. Eric got the crowd involved and sang along to pretty much every classic hit all night long.

Despite the wonderful setlist at that moment, the evening wasn’t over yet, Mr Big carried on with even more, “Wild World”, “Colorado Bulldog”, “Shy Boy”, “30 Days in the Hole”, a complete instrument. The set was an exercise in pure nostalgia. We could see Mr. Big, genuine talents and professionals doing what they love and it shows.

We’ll never forget this magic night!
