It was a decent gig - I can't really rave about it. I saw four shows at the start of the tour, and nothing has really changed. Same set list, same mood lighting, same lack of courtesy towards the audience. Her vocals were stunning as ever, but she always manages to ruin what is an amazing performance with her antics. On this occasion, it was the 10+ minute wait between the main set and the encore. GAMH is a small venue (600-700 capacity), but it was less than half full for this show. To keep that many people waiting as you preen in the back is just silly - it was embarrassing as there were times over that period when the crowd was almost silent. We're a bit too old to clap that long as an ego stroke.
Homecoming or not, it felt just like any other night.
