07/08/11 Largo at the Coronet - Los Angeles, CA (REVIEW)
« on: July 09, 2011, 12:05:16 am »
I was blown away by this show. It was my first concert ever, and I have to say, it set the bar high for any concerts I go to in the future. It was absolutely amazing.

I don't have the official setlist, but here's what I remember (not in order):

Heroes & Thieves
Who's to Say
Hands on Me
Tall Tales for Spring
Dear California
Nolita Fairytale
Fools Like Me
Fair Weather Friend
A Thousand Miles
I Don't Want to Be A Bride
Get Good
White Houses
London

Marching Line
Home
Carousel (with Stevie Nicks)

I thought the opening act (Maia Sharp) was pretty good too, although I don't know the names of the songs she played.

I didn't get to meet V because I had to leave shortly after the show ended. But, my sister and I sat behind Stevie Nicks in the audience, so that was pretty cool! Also, Ari was there, but not Skye. I missed him. :(

Vanessa was skjdhkfgliuyrwehfkjhd INCREDIBLE!! Her voice is so beautiful and strong (I have to say it, even though we all already know it!) and her piano playing really gets to me. I actually started crying during Who's to Say and Home. I was very impressed. Hopefully this will be one of many V shows I get to attend in the future. I loved the Largo too. It has a nice atmosphere.
I have a really cool The Fray gif that I would like to put here, but I don't know how. :(

it was sooooo good i can't get over it. she is amazing. sad though they didn't let us take pictures :(

it was funny when she forgot the words to home hahaha.

she didn't come out afterwards. i waited for a little bit and some dude came out and told us she left already. oh well, i was really tired.

SO Stevie is the special guest? Not really a surprise. But I wish they sang The One together.

Floating on the sea, stars are watching me. Currents take me out, what will be will be.

SAMMIE CARTER, were you in row H? Haha, you might have been sitting next to me and my sister! I was too shy/excited to try to find/mingle with other Nessaholics.

I had a feeling that she wouldn't come out, because maybe she went to hang out with Stevie. I wasn't sure that it was her at first when they escorted her into the audience, but then during Nolita Fairytale, the part where Vanessa sings "Stevie knows, and I thank her so," the ladies next to her exchanged glances and they all smiled, so that confirmed it was her. I liked the way she was nodding as Vanessa performed.... kind of like a mother who's proud of her child in a way.

I read that she came out a little later to take pictures and sign autographs.

They did that to us at the Joe's Pub shows as well, telling us she left the building. She doesn't usually take off that fast after shows, so you usually just have to wait a little while longer and she'll come out.

Yep, she did come out through the backdoor after a while. The venue staff was super rude and did not care at all. Well, it's LA for you I guess...

But it was very nice to see Jessica, Holly and Steve, old school Nessaholics! :)

nooo, that's what row stevie was in right? i was in row J which was like 2 rows behind her. i swear no one around me even realized it was her and i wanted to be like, you GUYS! that's STEVIE NICKS!! (sidenote: i tweeted that she was there and i've been getting @ replies on twitter ever since from stevie fans asking where i was.)


anyways, so rude of that guy to tell us vanessa left! i was wearing my shirt i made from the last time i met vanessa that she signed. and i wanted her to sign it again :( haha oh well.

OMG! she came out!! i was so sad that i ended up leaving... i was gonna ask her to sign a drawing of my tattoo that says "all is well"... gah i should have known better!! well i took videos of practically the whole show... (im pretty slick with the camera)...but some of the videos suck cuz the lighting was bad, but the audio is good... i was pretty much screw the rules the venue owners can shove it! (they literally can because they were a whole bunch of liars!)  >:(

SAMMIE, I totally wanted to do that too!!!! I saw them bring her in and i asked my sister, "Oh my gosh is that Stevie Nicks?????" and she didn't know cause she's not a huge fan like me.....and I kind of kept staring at her and the people around us like, "Am I the only one who notices that it's her??????"

WOW. How could they tell you that she left when she hadn't???? I would have been extremely mad if I left after waiting a while. I couldn't stay anyway so............ :(

Hahaha, maira, you're very sneaky!!!! How did you manage to record because I saw the largo employees coming up and down the aisles quite frequently and they even took some people out!!! Good job though!
I have a really cool The Fray gif that I would like to put here, but I don't know how. :(

Wow.... the show was amazing. V sounded great, and it was just really special. haha... but I guess your first V show always should be, right? It was just beautiful. She played Heroes and Thieves, Fools Like Me, Nolita Fairytale, and Dear Cali on the Rhodes. Sounded lovely. :) But it was an amazing night. :)

She did come out after the show, apparently. i waited in the courtyard until the staff practically threw us out with some BS excuse about how she had left, which we all knew she hadn't. ugh.... but maybe in the fall I can meet her. :) Fingers crossed! :) I think Ghisy might have been sitting right next to my friend and I... but I was too shy to say hi! :) Sorry.... blush... :) And met another fan or two... haha....

Overall, It was amazing! It just reaffirmed my love for her and her music. :)
All I hear is the music.... and beauty stands... before me... and love comes back... around again, it's a carousel my friend.... :)
