For once this time I can truly say Aretha was in Rare form.. She did a wonderful Job, the band and Background vocals were tight and Balanced well. And it seemed like she was really enjoying herself..Of course the sound at the bowl is just great.. The only flaw was too much imintation gospel ( Just bouncing and humming and waving your hands Ree' won't draw nobody to the Cross.!!!.. The choir was Horrible and looked like they were dreesed in the 40"s. Times have changed. Give them a up-to-date choir look.. Oh yea by the way, What was the Mardi-fras dancers at intermissio all about. It didn't fit the night and a lot of us were tired of them by the second song.!! TOO MUCH for a evening of Soul with THE QUEEN..
Aretha you rock!
Aretha seems to be trying to reinvent herself, rather than singing all of her great songs that her loyal fans all paid so much money to hear her sing. She didn't even sing RESPECT...She stopped after two songs for 20 minutes because the AC was on, most of the music was unrecognizable! As the audience shouted out all of the titles that they wanted to hear she actually told us to get out our wallets, because for another $15,000 that she'd sing whatever we wanted....then she proceeded to promote her new X-mas CD and sing songs that no one wanted to hear. ...the whole show was a huge disappointment. I'll stick to her CD's from now on
