Las Vegas style show performs in SLC…

It’s not often that I come home from a concert and immediately want to listen to an album from a different artist. However, after listening to renditions of Nina Simone done with 50’s style dance step, I couldn’t wait to get home to listen to the real thing. Now I’m sure that the girls who went ballistic trying to get close to the stage probably have never heard the original songs that he was covering and as such don’t realize that the artist’s voice needs to mature about 5 to 10 years before he’ll be able to do them true justice.
The Elvis moves and the Rat Pack act are also something that was most likely lost to most of the 6000 attendees. I could see some of the older couples got it though. I really felt disappointed in the concert, but then the tickets were free so I can’t complain too much since it was worth the price of admission.
The best joke of the whole evening (once again, the laugh lines were reminiscent of a small gallery on the Strip or in the Sands) – “Okay, I was warned that Salt Lake was a conservative town; I needed to watch my language and keep the movements clean. But really people, I’ve never had my ass grabbed so often as I did during this audience walk.”

Okay, I’m sorry if I’m offending fans but I just couldn’t take Micheal Buble’ seriously when, opening with the red spotlight, he looks just like my sister’s husband.

Now if he’s playing in Vegas 10 years from now and has developed a style of his own while keeping the big band and jazz, I’ll be one of those tossing panties on the stage a’ la Tom Jones.
