Catching up…

 

Well, I have to admit that I have not been a very good blogger recently.   So many great shows came in the last couple of months and I was just too busy to write about them.   As an apology, I am going to try and mention a few now.

Melissa Etheridge was a blow out.  I bet you never get to see her in a venue this size again.   Backstage, as they were loading in the show, Melissa was overheard saying it’s like trying to fit an elephant into a shoe box.  She had a chef on site who fixed meals for the artists and crew.  It smelled incredible.  For the most part Melissa kept to herself and didn’t interact with anyone.  Her show was three hours non-stop rock and it did…

David Byrne rode his bike from the hotel to the theatre.  Backstage everything that could be done to make a production green was done.  The show was easily one of the best ever to hit our stage.  4 encores with standing O’s.  After the show, David hung out with a few locals at the Driskoll bar.

Not on our stage, but at the Hilton, I got the chance to have a conversation with Lily Tomlin in front of 900 people.  The picture above is better than anything I could say here.  I love her.  Really.

Next up – Turk Pipkin and Kinky Friedman on October 10.

  1. I’ve been coming to the Paramount for 11 years and David Byrne was the best show ever!!! 1200 40-something fans channeling their 20-something days, dancing with their arms in the air, chanting “Same as it ever was, same as it ever was….” Thanks Paramount for delivering another amazing concert experience.
