Review round-up #1
There are a lot of concerts going on every day in this here world, and we want to share some of the great experiences (and sometimes not so great) that you Songkickers are having! So each week, we’ll be highlighting the best reviews and live Tweets that have been added to the site. Think of it as a little snap-shot of live music around the globe.
ps we aren’t biased to genre/location/size – it’s a random selection!
Live Tweets during concerts*:
“Heaviest concert I’ve been to by far! Finally saw one of my favorite bands after following them for so many years. Deftones didn’t disappoint! The music was loud as it should be for them and the energy never let up. The crowd was body surfing and getting tossed into the arms of security. Of course Chino didn’t help by leaping off stage into the crowd himself and singing with the fans! Awesome show!”
It was wonderful to be at a gig with an audience who truly appreciate music and talent – the whole room was silent as Sam sang his set. The lyrics to his songs are great and heartfelt, and he has a gorgeous voice. Along with his talent also comes charm and charisma – while his songs are slow and soothing Sam has a great sense of humour and really connected with the audience – especially the beloved Canadians! Really loved the performance and would also love to see Sam again. Talented and a genuinely lovely guy who likes to spend time with his fans.
Why did they ever stop making music?! They kicked ass…’nuff said!
I’ve forgotten how many times I’ve seen this band. I remember seeing them as Steve Bob and Rich circa 1985 at the Spirit Fest in KC. This show was something else. I got here late and missed the first 5 songs. I’m still kicking myself.
There was a deep, real connection between Sara and her audience. She’s the real deal. No faking. And her quirkiness cracked us up! She saved Gravity, the best for last. C:
* Wait, what, how does Songkick know what people were tweeting at concerts, are you stalkers?! Not quite – if you connect your Twitter account to Songkick we’ll post your 140 characters (or less…) on the concert page by using your upcoming events calendar to search your tweets for mentions of the artists, venue, or the hashtag #songkick on the day of the concert. Try it out next time you’re at a show!
