The night after Michael was forced - due to unforeseen circumstances - to cancel his Belfast gig, he played in Bristol on 20/12/09. From reports, and the videos posted on YouTube by fans, it is evident that the band and Michael were in formidable form.
Hopefully, Michael will be able to reschedule the Belfast gig and visit the city in 2010.
The clip below highlights Michael's beautiful guitar tone and guitar playing virtuosity - the second lead break is astounding, charged with melodic creativity and brilliant licks.
In the meantime, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
