a magical evening at a great New York venue
Refreshingly honest and considerate
It’s the music, stupid
Everyone was good, spirited, and appealing
Her perceptive songwriting is complemented by her idiosyncratic guitar playing and distinctive vibrato-less voice
no sign of slowing down
great songwriting and harmony singing
a comfortable, civilized way to see a show
yesterday I saw one way live music might return
rock is not dead
on top of his game
more like a benevolent ringmaster
retained its sweetness but not its power
inspiring and satisfying
Two blonde Valkyries
he’s fine but not that charismatic
Would this be another example of an aging band trying gin up interest with a gimmick?
singing terse well-written songs with wit and skill
a very satisfying evening.
A perfect match of band, audience and venue.
2018 was not a great year for music, at least for the kind of music I love.
The band was as tight as the pants as they performed just about all the songs you’d want to hear
We were treated a 26 song show by a true American master
the name isn’t the thing – it’s the play.
There is a special pleasure in seeing a great performer in a smaller venue
It was special to see him in a 1000 seat venue
3 hours of music in the original keys
Stark Western landscapes
An uneven performance
passion, gusto, and a tremendous sense of fun
“I cant’ talk to you now, I’ll get in trouble”.
He is still a master of the guitar
an enjoyable evening but not quite what it used to be
Fits the formula of great
comfortable and civilized setting
the next best thing
Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band, Tuesday, August 23rd And Thursday, August 25th, 2016 At Metlife, Reviewed
These were my 30th and 31st Bruce shows, and two I will never forget.
Warm and friendly
The love she gave which equalled by the love she received from the audience.
Still love you, Bonnie!
Bucket List: Get Married, Get Pregnant, Dance with Bruce
He performed solo, and showcased his talent with one song from each of his albums in chronological order
Fagen’s voice was never great, and the years haven’t been kind to it. Fortunately it is augmented by three slinkily clad background singers including Cindy Mizelle who is also an E Street Choir member. With their great voices Fagen didn’t really have to sing much. Becker contributed some fine lead guitar and some amusing stage patter.
The set combined a fair number of songs from the new album, Song s of Innocence, with a nice mix of hits and obscurities. Among the latter were the first live version of “October” in about 25 years, played on the small stage with only Edge on keyboards.
I wish he would talk less, especially since I’ve heard most of these stories before. A few times he brought out his guitar rack and started talking about the different individual instruments and what sounded good on each one. Interesting for a guitar nerd like me but probably not so much for most of the crowd.
The band features the songs and lead vocals of Colin Meloy. He has a unique point of view and a unique voice. The songs are richly textured, with little soloing. Lead guitarist Chris Funk and keyboardist Jenny Conlee play in a way that reminds of Peter Buck’s guitar in REM
