I saw Patti Smith in concert last night....
« on: March 14, 2017, 06:17:16 AM »
..... and, holy cow, does she still "got it". An excellent 2-hour set, opening with the entirety of her seminal debut, Horses, and ending with a blistering cover of The Who's My Generation, the show was fantastic.

Tonight, I'm going to see every U2 fan's favorite folk-rockers, The Lumineers!

It was such a good show. Hearing her voice, and seeing her performance, it's hard to believe that she's 70.

One of the best, if not the best live track I have ever witnessed was My Blakean Year performed by her in Brooklyn.

Were some of her hard-core fans at the show upset that she was playing an old album of hers in its entirety and, therefore, her becoming a "heritage act"??

What is it in Royal Oak?

Royal Oak show sold out a while back, I believe. I was surprised to see that since Royal Oak isn't a terribly small venue, but it sounds like she still puts on a fantastic show so the demand is there.

I've never really gotten into her music, but maybe I'll revisit it.

I saw her at St. Andrews Hall seven years ago or so...she TORE IT UP! Incredible live even now.

I almost went to that exact Patti Smith show and I'm kicking myself for not going! Sounds like a great time. Looking forward to seeing The Lumineers open for U2 in Pittsburgh.

I must be the only person who doesn't get the appeal of patti smith. i've tried many times to give her music a chance but it just doesn't do anything for me.i always found her to be like jim carrol- deep in the NY art scene and present in the influential history of punk, but not really adding much to it.  sorry, know i'll catch heat for that.

Try "Gone Again" if you haven't already.  The first album of her second stage, and full of beautiful, soulful songs.

My Blakean Year is in an incredible song.
