Many thanks to Gabble Ratchet and Steve Hammond for kindly letting me know that tonight's Luna Rossa concert had been cancelled saving me a wasted journey. Really appreciate the thought. smiley

Will be interesting to compare notes. She was the most relaxed and assured I've ever seen her in concert.

You're absolutely right, she was certainly at ease and confident on stage. Don't know if you saw her on the previous tour, but that was something I noticed then too. She's definitely in her element up there.

Concert was great. I don't think Sarah has sounded better. Can't complain about the set list either.

About the fan segments...
I have to say that I've got a lot of respect for her effort in connecting with fans the way she does, and there were some very warmhearted moments that came out of her conversations with the folks on stage. She appears to be genuinely appreciative and sincere, and that sense of being able to makie the people on stage feel at ease was very nice to see.

Having said that, I found the segments affected the flow of the concert more than necessary. On one hand it was great to see her sharing that time with her fans, on the other it created odd gaps in the concert. Along with the break, the show had a broken up feel to it. I'm not quite sure if it worked for me.

But as far as the actual show goes, it sounded great and looked great. Wish I had a gone to a Massey Hall gig, or the London show tonight.

I agree about the fan segments. They showed a really nice side of her, but disturbed the momentum of the show. It made it feel more like a casual house concert (albeit with 1000+ in attendance). It might have worked better to break it up with one question between each song and all the photos and hugs after the show itself.

Performance-wise she just looked so comfortable and in her element. In earlier tours, she sounded good but often looked a little stiff and awkward. Her voice was superb and effortless. And we had the treat of Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland joining on back-up vocals for the majority of the second set.

I was mildly disappointed that there was nothing from Solace and Touch, but can't really argue with what she did play.

Yup, would have been nice to hear something from the early albums. We got Luke and Melissa as well. Luke got a big hometown cheer when he came on stage. (I think he's from Halifax, and Melissa is originally from Burlington, but their home base now is Hamilton.)

One other thing...
During one of the questions from a hat segment, she was asked who was her biggest influence. Without hesitation she said Peter Gabriel. She went on to say that when she first heard him when she was 16 yrs old she realized what she wanted to do with her life. No big surprise there if you were familiar enough with her career, but a nice moment nonetheless.

At the Toronto show she was asked who was her favourite singer and she also said Peter Gabriel. I think you know that she covered Solisbury Hill on a CD single in her early days. She also picked The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway on a compilation of her favourite songs.

I thought I may have mentioned this before, but I saw Sarah on her debut tour...probably 1990. She played at a pub/coffee house gig at McMaster. The band was crowded into a corner of the floor area and we were sitting at a table about 15 ft away. She didn't have much material to work with then, so she had added "Solsbury Hill" and Zep's "D'yer Mak'er" to the set. Of course we had no idea she was a big Gabriel fan, but we thought it was pretty cool that she covered that song. Best part came at the end, after doing the encore, the audience gave her a huge response and was hoping she would play something else. She sheepishly had to admit that the band didn't know any more songs, but to make everyone happy she played "Vox" again. It was a very memorable moment. cool

Cool story. I had a conversation with her decades ago in which she told me she had also covered D'yer Maker and also I Know What I Like. You have verified the first part but I can't completely trust my memory about the second. That would have been interesting to see/hear.
