“Welcome back, Steve!”

I heard that over and over last night, and it was very pleasing to my ears.

First show back as Steve Bello at Dingbatz for the F–k Cancer benefit gig to support our friend Irene DeMeo. And let me tell you, it was a blast!!

Hit the stage at 8:30, banged out a 45-minute set and it was the most relaxed I ever felt. I even caught myself during some songs thinking “I am actually enjoying this again?!” Strange how that works out. Mike Sabatini and Brian Smith totally crushed it while I wailed away. Everyone in attendance were genuinely wide-eyed about our set. It was great to see such an amazing turnout for Irene.

This was the set list:

Time To Fly (from MARBLEHEAD)/Quicker Than The Devil/Burn The Sky (from JUPITER RETURN)/Stranded On Pluto (from MOOD SWINGS)/Throwing Away My Skin (from GO BERZERK!)/Blame The Moon (MS)/Force Quit (MS)/Never Be The Sane (MS)

It felt SO great to say “Here’s one from my new album!”

Never thought I would utter those words ever again.
