Wednesday January 20th Ruanne's Restaurant and Night Club, Barrie, Ontario, Canada
Ruanne's was a bar with a large dance floor. The dance floor has been converted to house a small stage while still leaving plenty of open floor space.
The capacity for the night's concert was 400. 150 tickets were pre-sold for the concert. There was a large walk up audience, but nowhere near a sell out. The crowd was a very confortable size and appeared to be made up of lots of long-standing male and female Lee Aaron fans. The show started around 10:45 PM. This was the set list: Nasty Boyz, Rock Me All Over, Hands On, Only Human, Powerline, Sweet Talk, Whatcha Do To My Body, Sex With Love, Barely Holdin' On, Some Girls Do, Rock The Hard Way, Odds Of Love, Soul In Motion, Metal Queen and God Save The Queen (a Sex Pistols cover).
Lee was in great spirits and conversed with the crowd throughout the show. During an equipment set up she even performed a jazz tune. The crowd really were rocking once she performed her better known material. Her band was very solid and her voice was very strong. "Only Human", "Powerline" and "Barely Holdin' On" were standouts. "Metal Queen" was as hard as ever. She still is not confortable with the label "metal queen".
After the concert, fans seeking autographs or the like had a chance to meet with her in her dressing room. Here, she was completely relaxed and answered questions on her future. She is planning on releasing a new jazz album this year under the name "Lee Aaron" and hopes a rock album will be released by early 2000. There are no plans to continue recording with 2preciious. A European tour is next in her plans and plans to tour Canada when she comes back. She currently is enjoying living in Vancouver.
