Despite the pouring rain that didn't deter anyone seated on the lawn, Lilith came to Toronto last night. There had been all sorts of rumours that this concert, as some already had, would be canceled. It wasn't. The attendance was great and the fans, if not the performers (Kelly Clarkson - BOOOO) were faithful. Our seats were perfect, at the main stage, and in the covered section.
Who knew that "The Court Yard Hounds" were previously "The Chicks"...as in The Dixie Chicks! We loved them and will look for their music.
Have to say that Mary J. Blige puts on a real stage show, something about seeing her live and the guts that she puts into a performance makes me like her more. This Stairway to Heaven song is a fabulous one for her to sing.
Another Canadian, Chantal Kreviazuk, sang an appropriate song..feels like home, I may have to watch "The Notebook" again.
But Sarah, Oh Sarah. This latest album of hers and her performance is testament to the strength of this woman. She's better than ever. Her voice is mellifluous and true and deep and convincing. She's strong and grounded. Wonderful. She sang lots of old favourites interspersed with a few new ones.... Still a HUGE fan! Thanks Sarah for putting this women in song together. Quite the concert.
