"And perhaps unsurprisingly, the always-unpredictable Corey Glover of Living Colour stole the show as the gala’s closer. The founding member of Living Colour used all of the stage, the pit and even the tented audience area to perform “Power of Soul” and “Cross Town Traffic.” With his blonde hair, spectacles and Run DMC shirt, Glover’s presence had fans putting down their fancy drinks and dancing to a rollicking good time. Glover went into the bleachers, stood on top of a diner’s seat, then found himself sitting on the edge of the stage and dangling as listeners rushed over to get up close and personal."

"On the day of the first Argentinean show in Cordoba I welcomed the guest musicians singer Diego Valdez, guitarist Julian Barrett and bassist Doug Wimbish on board. I thought it would be a nice addition to have the musicians that have been alternating on my last tours for my first DVD."
Doug, who has toured and recorded with Tarja Turunen, appears on Tarja's 'ACT 1' DVD. The concerts were filmed in Rosario, Argentina, in March 2012.
The DVD will be available on August 24, 2012.
"A couple of teasers from the gala at the Central Park Summerstage last night. Above you can see Wyclef Jean kicking off the night playing the National Anthem with his mouth. Click through for The Roots and Living Color."
"The highlight of the night was Living Colour. Living Colour brought the evening to another level with their cover of Crosstown Traffic. As Corey Glover shouted to the crowd, “I know you paid a lot of money for this evening. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun!” Then to further emphasize his point he and Doug Wimbish jumped over the barrier into the laps of the seated donors for Power of Soul and Crosstown Traffic while the rest of the musicians standing side stage (including Ivan and Ian Neville) had to be restrained by security from joining in."

"Nowhere was that more evident than with the night's “headliners” (if you can single one amazing group out). Living Colour stole the show with their two songs, “Power of Soul” and “Cross Town Traffic” to end the night. Their rampant and frantic energy, combined with the metal elements and incredible musical skill and Glover's powerful, wailing vocals, almost literally brought the house down. Glover and bassist Doug Wimbish fled the stage and entered the tent where all the donors were seated, hopping up on tables and causing havoc. It was an amazing display of raw, musical passion, and everyone in attendance ate it up.
But no other group was going to go as crazy as Living Colour did. Their set was unique to them, just as each set was to that particular artist." More...
