Concert Review: Gotye at Lakewood Civic Auditorium

Share on Nextdoor


Mid-way through last night’s 90-minute concert at Lakewood Civic Auditorium, Belgian-Austrian singer-multi-instrumentalist Gotye invited patrons from the cheap seats to the front of the stage where they could stand and/or dance. Most of the fans took him up on his offer and migrated down from the general admission section. It was a good move on Gotye’s part to try to involve the audience. Too bad he couldn’t deliver the goods and resorted to playing a few “soft songs” before living up to fans’ expectations and delivering his catchy indie pop hit “Somebody That I Used to Know.”
