Last night, Collette and I went to see Sheryl Crow & James Blunt at the Usana Amphitheater. James Blunt put on a great show! He ran took off his suit jacket, then joked that he would take off an item of clothing every song if the audience did, too. Of course there were people in the audience who were all for it. He ran through the audience, surfed the top of his upright piano, tipped over the bench (thankfully NOT the piano!) and switched seamlessly between piano and guitar. I was very impressed.
Sheryl Crow has an amazing voice & a great stage presence. All of her best songs, My Favorite Mistake, Leaving Las Vegas, Love is Free, Soak Up the Sun, The First Cut is the Deepest, are astounding live. Her hair has a life of its own. Gorgeous. Watching her shake her groove thing on stage, I began thinking about her triumphs with breast cancer and a momentous break-up, it’s impressive to see how far she’s come. Great show.
