Anyone going to the last show of the tour?
2  Vanessa Carlton / Live Shows / The Great American Music Hall, San Francisco, CA 04.10.17 (review) on: April 11, 2017, 12:18:45 pm
So this is my favorite venue in the city and she hadn't played it since 2004. It was much different. Seated instead of standing. I was excited because all through Skye and Tristen it was so quiet and people were listening. People were excited for Vanessa and she got that elephant out of the room by doing ATM first. This dude was all, "You want us to stand up?" She said, "No, you can just chill." HILarious. I was super annoyed with the people chatting and after so long, I couldn't take it and had to say something. It took  some serious crisis communication for me to remain calm so I didn't get arrested. everything for me not to be arrested. I just don't get it. Why do you come to a show to talk?

She played on a grand piano it was nice!!

As I said before. I just can't get over how amazing they sound and the looping and layers going on!?! Huh?
The set list was almost the same but that's ok. I noticed even more cool sounds.

She didn't say she was going to come out which was okay but there was this young girl who was 15. It was her first show. Talk about feeling old. I asked her how does one get into an artist who's first album came out when you were born. She said, her dad, Again talk about feeling old. Lol.

I started a new job and am on Probation til July so I couldn't take any time off to hit any other shows like I usually do. I was super excited this was on a weekend and my bro lives in Portland.

I just can't even say how amazing she sounds and the looping is even more beautiful than last tour. So many layers and more of Vanessa's voice as well. She came out to sign whatever anyone bought so it was nice to say hi.

Yes! She does sound better than ever and Skye!! They are amazing together. They had 2 songs on FB live so I was excited to hear WTS again.

Thanks for your review!!

Thanks for taking the time to write all that. I hope you are felling better. FYI being front row at her show isn't really ever a good spot. You usually have a bad angle and or can't see, guess it depends on the stage.

She hasn't played with a full band since the beginning, 15 years ago  Shocked Those were the days!!

Thanks for the review! I am glad she added a new old song!! And that she is thinking about mixing it up. I would die (again) if she ever played "Pretty Baby."

Having been to many shows/tours over the last 13 years. This is definitely the happiest and most engaged she has ever been. It is great to see.

Not lame. We were all totally hoping. She did it a couple times at SF shows but I had to remind and request it. She was all, Oh yeah!! lol
12  Vanessa Carlton / Live Shows / San Francisco, CA The Independent 01.19.16 (review) on: January 31, 2016, 08:56:53 pm
It was so great to see so many people and early. SF isn't known for getting to shows early. V looked beautiful and interacted playfully. She was excited to be back in SF!! She came out after the show which I was so happy about since I hadn't had a chance to say hello. She was sweet as ever and super appreciative for the support. She even asked how I had been.

Setlist was the same. I decided to try to record some songs. I am out of practice. Sorry.

I love you Portland!! The first 26 minutes was magic, pure silence, people actually listening. It was awesomely beautiful. Then, pockets of people talking. Super annoying! Vanessa looked happy and beautiful in her White Jeans!! I love that she is super chatty telling stories (the same ones but I am sure most people there didn't know them.) She's grown so much. My bro lives in Portland now so I brought him to the show. He last saw her when he lived in Seattle in 2007. He really enjoyed the show.

Setlist:

Carousel (LTF intro)
Tall Tales for Spring
White Houses
Take It Easy
Willows
House of Seven Swords
Operator (I had to poke my brother during this song, you know the part)
Blue Pool
Nothing Where Something Used To Be
River (messed up the beginning)
ATM (after she said, "People let me grow up, I'm a 35 year old lady, I wrote that when I was 16, I can still make that work" "I just keep playing that song cause I'm nice."  Which is true. When I was at the Seattle show some lady said to me, "Are you ready for a nostalgic night?" I said, "This is her 5th album, but yes it will be."

I am pretty sure that was it. I am about to take off to Portland, do you want me to pick one up for you?

Was a fun dive bar show. The crowd was great but also there were those people that talk. So annoying! Awesome to see Skye up there solo as the opener. Vanessa was super chatty and told pretty much the same stories. She said her keyboard was damaged. It went via Fed Ex to Vancouver. It did during that show so she is using a smaller one.
