Bolton can still wow them

Don't let the age fool you - Michael Bolton hasn't lost a step, or note.

The long hair may be long gone, but, at 63, the New Haven, Conn., native still sounds the same as he did when he was wooing fans and charming the ladies with a string of pop-rock ballads through the 1980s and '90s.

Bolton's voice was on full display on a picturesque evening before more than 1,200 appreciative fans at the outdoor amphitheatre at Mission Hill Winery.

The backdrop was perfect for a Bolton performance that touched every taste, from the classic Sittin' on The Dock of the Bay ("I have to sit for this one"), to the high energy Ain't No Mountain High Enough.

Sam Fly, an up and coming singer and actress, joined Bolton for their rendition of the Marvin Gaye classic and other duet performances.

Bolton even shocked the crowd when, after a brief respite backstage, he returned in the middle of the crowd for a heart-stopping rendition of When a Man Loves a Woman.

He finished the nearly two-hour show with How Can We Be Lovers and Steel Bars, before returning for a beautiful version of Georgia On My Mind.

The performance Friday was part of the winery's summer concert series.

Bolton sold out so quickly, a second show has been added Sunday.

Other shows in the summer series include Melissa Etheridge on Aug. 26 and the Gipsy Kings Aug. 28. Both are already sold out.
