Dennis will perform the full Grand Illusion album live in St. Charles, IL on 7/7/17. Wish I still lived in Illinois because I would go to this show.

I wonder if a recording of this show is planned.

This would be a good place to record. It's an old classic theater from the 1920s with good acoustics. I've seen a couple shows here.

It's too bad It's too far away for me to attend. The other interesting question is who is going to sing lead on Miss America? I remember a few years back DDY was pondering about doing PT like this. He mentioned it once and then never followed up on it. Personally, I think PT would be a better fit for DDY to do in this fashion. Having said that I think it's great that he is mixing things up.

I wonder if Jimmy Leahy knows how to sing. If he can do a decent rendition of JY songs, it would be great to hear Double Life, etc added to the regular set. Put Me On and Snowblind as well.

Jimmy has sung background vocals but I've never seen him do lead. The question is do you mean "sing" or "scream" a JY rendition?

I'd just like to hear Dennis sing Miss America to see how that would sound.

Same here, DDY did a good job on Tommy's Boat on a River a few years back.

Jimmy Leahy can knock Miss America out of the park. Should be a great show.

I'd love to hear Dennis do Paradise Theater in its entirety too.

Maybe DDY will try out other songs now. I would suggest Midnight Ride and Snowblind.
