Maybe it's because they're not really well known songs so she shortens them for people's attention spans.

Wild Heart deserves to be played in full. That whole song is one of her masterpieces.

Thank you so much for sharing the videos from last night. I noticed there weren't any strobe lights or anything during Edge. Very different stage setup than when she played the big festival in Hyde Park London!

I don’t like her recorded version of Free Falling, but it sure was effective when she performed it live with Fleetwood Mac. But I agree with you, she should have replaced it with one of her solo hits, I just forgot to specifically mention that song.

With Covid, she probably didn’t get to practice as much before this gig, so the band just played Wild Heart and Bella Donna the way they had during 24 Karat. Both songs are fairly long anyway, so even only playing half of each song was still pretty long.

Considering her age, I have lower expectations for seeing her live. Same thing with Christine and Lindsey. I understand their songs aren’t going to sound as good live. They’re in their 70s. It’s amazing none of them are using walkers. Phil Collins did the Genesis tour sitting on a stool and not playing drums. Unfortunate but it sounds like it was an entertaining show and he probably felt great being on stage again. I say go see all these folks live in concert while you have the opportunity and they’re able to perform.

As much as I hate to say thisÖ Stevie should retire her live shows. This chapter has closed as it also has with Fleetwood Mac live.

You donít have to hate to say that, itís your opinion. So donít go to her concerts or watch her live videos on YouTube, and problem solved. Then let the other folks who want to spend money go see her and enjoy themselves, just like they do with Dolly Parton, The Rolling Stones, Phil Collins, Loretta Lynn, Crystal Gayle, and any other singer whoís in their 70s but still performing. I mean, if Abba toured again, Iíd go and see them, knowing perfectly well it wouldnít be the same as seeing them live 40 years ago.

Yeah, this. Honestly Iíd pay to watch her sit in a rocking chair knitting a sweater on stage Iíve never really given a **** what she (or anyone else in her age group) sounds like during live shows. With me, itís kind of like when my kid draws me a picture. I donít actually care if itís a good picture. I just immediately smile and hang it on the fridge. I love every picture because I love her. And I think of old ass icons the same way. Just thrilled to have the chance to be in the presence of someone who means a lot to me, since they wonít be here forever.

I love what you said. I decided on Saturday to drive from Florida to New Orleans to catch this show. I was not disappointed. Like this post, I am just so happy to be in her presence. It takes me away to another place and just totally relaxes me. Now, in hindsight, I hate that I started my leaving during the Edge thinking that would be the last song. I loved everything about the show and will go again if she comes anywhere near me. She did join Wild Heart and Bella Donna and briefly mentioned the shawl at the end of the song. I don't know how many people were there-I feel upwards of 50K and everyone seemed to really be into the show. She looked amazing and sounded amazing, in my opinion. Just so happy for the chance to see her again. This is probably my 100th time seeing her (just kidding but probably close) and I can close my eyes and imagine the high kicks and wild dancing of her younger days, but that voice also just takes me away.

I'm glad the fingerless gloves are gone. And I love the little boots.

Thanks for sharing your experience. Sounds like you had a great time! I hate large crowds, so being around 50K people would have freaked me out.

I don't think it's respectful to say to BLY to not go to concerts or watch YouTube videos. I mean YouTube is free so why not watch the videos And why is there a problem needing to be solved? They didn't say I can't listen to her ever again.
As you stated, they don't feel Stevie or FM should continue their live shows; that feeling is not a "problem."
People are free to critique performances. I love Stevie and I watched the Jazz Fest performance of Gypsy, and it sounded very different from her 2016 performances. The "you see your Gypsy"s have dropped in range. If I paid $500-$1,500 to see her sing like that, I'd be disappointed.

Mick Jagger and Keith sound amazing.

Critiquing a performance is fine… saying someone should quit touring is a different thing. I definitely did not mean to be disrespectful to BLY, and I don’t think I was. If I hate horror movies, I could say I hate them and they shouldn’t be made anymore; or I could just say, I hate horror movies, so I don’t watch them. I wouldn’t say they shouldn’t be made anymore. For me to say, I don’t think Pat Benatar should tour anymore because she can’t sing as well as she did 40 years ago, or 10 years ago, or 2 years ago, is disrespectful, I think. Why rain on people’s parade, you know what I mean? When I saw Blondie several years back and was telling some friends what a great show it was, one friend said “oh my god, she’s still touring?” Why my friend was so irritated about Blondie touring I have no idea.

So should posts in this thread about this live concert or videos of this concert only be praise for the performances?

Maybe the moderators will advise.

Michele has always appreciated honesty. I'd say post away with whatever!
