I was planning on going to the early show. She didn't take the stage until about 10. She was still on stage talking with her fans when I left around 2:30. The show had a rocky start, and she was definitely hard to comprehend from the back of the room. Moving closer to the stage completely changed the experience. The closer the better!
When she asked the people in the back to "needle nose" their way to the front of the stage, I jumped at the opportunity, right into the front row, and then she asked the people in front to sit on the stage. That was an amazing seat.
It turned into a completely different show at that point. Charming, interactive, funny. Most of the people who were disengaged and expecting her to play the hits had left by then. Good riddance. I feel like I got to know a performer that night, and I can't wait for her to come back to town.
