What an amazing sight to see, if not hear, and feel, was that “something special is happening” vibe overtaking the Emerald, and with the box office door lined up around the corner at 10pm, it was evident that the word was spreading across the Clem.

With a Gold Record in hand, Vinnie made his way through the crowd to meet up with his band mates while the fans showered him with their appreciation. What a scene to see as Sponge literally played face to face with there fans, giving them every ounce of energy they had left, kicking out their hits Party Till Ya Drop, Have You Seen Mary, and Destroy the Boy!

We just have to say on behalf of everyone who attended and all of us here at DetroitRockReview.com, Thank You Sponge, That Was a Riot!!!
