So, What the Fuss?

Let me just say first off, Stevie was Wonderful. He did not disappoint. On the other hand, the loud mouths sitting behind us just about got a mouthful of fist. Lucky for them, I'm more civilized than that. My question: Why pay upwards of $50 per ticket to sit and LOUDLY chat with your buddy sitting next to you and when that gets too boring, call another friend on the cell phone and have this engaging conversation (during a slow, quiet song no less), "Yeah, I don't know what Stevie is singing right now, just some song.......yeah, I had a roast beef sandwich for lunch." And then after every song they scream at the top of their lungs, "WE LOOOOVE YOOOU STEEEEVIE!!!!" At one point I turned to Ron and said, "If they love Stevie so much, then why don't they shut up and listen to him sing?"

He sang all of my favorites so I was satisfied with that. He definitely has not lost his voice over the years. It is still very much intact. For most of the performance he sat either at the keyboard or the piano, which were set up right next to each other. Later on, he stood up and belted out a few tunes (making me nervous because he was at the very front of the stage, right next to a small speaker on the floor....one wrong step). Then, with the help of one of his backup singers, he stepped up onto the piano bench to sing. Towards the end of the song, and without any help, he jumped down off the bench. Of course, their was a loud, collective gasp from the audience. I have a feeling he does this on purpose. :)

A great night. Memorable performance. One of the best birthday gifts ever.

    i hate it when ppl talk during concerts!

    in '96 i won tix to a tori amos concert in st. louis. next to me, some guy kept grumbling (i guess his girlfriend dragged him there.) he was saying stuff like, "tori amos. um, yay." so finally i said, "why don't you see hootie and the blowfish? *they* have talent."

    he shut up :)

    Awesome! Glad you had a good time.

    When I saw Billy Joel there was a father/son pair sitting in front of us. They knew every word to every song and sang along with such vigor and emotion... it was fun to watch.
