Here is a great pic of Dave with Michael Sweet from Stryper. Michael was support act for the Filmore show. This is what Michael had to say about the experience:
I grew up listening to this guy. One of my favorite bands and favorite guitarists of all time and a huge influence. It’s hard to believe that I was watching them perform 40+ years ago at The Starwood in Hollywood. They inspired me to be better and play harder. Thank you Dave Meniketti and “Yesterday & Today” – Y&T! I’m so honored to have had the opportunity to open for you at @thefillmore #music#legend #guitar #hero #heavymetal (thank you Jon Friesen for this photo!)
HERE you can read a great review from the show in Bedford, cool read!
HERE you can see some great shots taken during the outdoor show the band did on the Monsters Of Rock Cruise. Winds Of Change? Joe Schaeffer is responsible for this eye candy 🙂
Here you can see the setlist from the show in Poughkeepsie, this was added on Facebook by Timothy Bender with the following comment;
Here’s the Setlist from the stage of last nights gig in Poughkeepsie, NY. They also played three requested songs: Rock’n Roll Gonna Save The World, Winds Of Change and Bar Room Boogie in between Open Fire and Forever!

Dave shared a message about the documentary;
First, hello to all our loyal fans who contributed to the Y&T documentary Kickstarter campaign back in 2015.
We’ve heard from some of you over the past couple of years and we share in your frustration over the extreme delay of this film. I can tell you that the project is still moving forward, and the two-man production team is promising us an end-of-year completion.
Nonetheless, the band members and management have seen the production team’s promised timelines come and go, and it has been just as frustrating for us, on many levels, as this is not how Y&T does business. This organization prides itself on always striving to do the right thing by the fans, and these delays have put us in an undesirable position.
I feel badly that some of you have lost your trust in us. Therefore, for those of you who are tired of waiting, if you would like to opt out, we can offer you a full refund of your contribution. Should you choose this, you will not receive your copy of the DVD, bonuses, or the rewards that you selected.
Mark & Geoff (the documentary production team) really are doing a great job, and we want to see them succeed–especially after they’ve given 4+ years of their lives to this project.
Now, that being said, we suspect most of you are in this for the long haul. And for those of you willing to wait for the project’s completion, we thank you for your amazing patience, and we look forward to sharing the final film with you.
