11/29 Club Cafe, Pittsburgh, PA (Review)
« on: November 29, 2013, 08:55:06 pm »
So, if some of you guys did not know, tonight was the last show of Vanessa's November tour and it couldn't have ended on a better note (minus the crazy drunk man I'll talk about later).  This had to be one of the most magical performances I have seen of Vanessa's to date and I cherished every minute of it.  Her and Skye rounded out the last show, without fiance John (Lord Victor also was not present this show).  She and Skye both seemed to be having a really good time for this last show.  She talked a bit about her sickness and how Hear the Bells was inspired from that time and she also mentioned Stevie, because some drunk guy asked if she watched American Horror Story: Coven and she said she does.  V ended up dedicating Hear the Bells to Stevie (or maybe Get Good).  V also told us about the Dude Ranch and how she enjoyed her time there and the countless amount of lacrosse guys who knew all the lyrics to White Houses.

I was deeply upset that V did not come out at the end of the show to sign merchandise for her fans, this was due to the fact that a drunk man was interrupting her speeches between songs and ended up trying to follow her up to the lounge of the venue.  Needless to say, he was thrown out and banned from the venue.  However, myself and two other girls chose to wait out in the cold for about 30-45 minutes post-show to see if her tour management would invite us inside, or Vanessa would come out and say hi.  Luckily for us, they saw that we were not deranged crazy fans and invited us back into the venue.  If some of you Nessaholics don't know, I hold the manuscript to Twilight, along with the orchestration CD.  Both V and Skye were so fascinated that I had this piece of musical history and looked through it.  I got her to sign it and also politely asked for a quick group photo, which she graciously agreed to.  I am so thankful that I got to see her after the show and I had such a magical evening!

I tried my best to record all of the songs she played tonight but I was conserving on my iPhone battery so I could record the new songs.  I managed to get all of the new songs and most of the ones from Rabbits on the Run (with the exception of Carousel and Tall Tales for Spring).  I also have a few pictures I'm going to upload this evening.

Here was tonight's set-list: (The photo I took of the set-list has Home listed as the last encore but V ended up playing The Marching Line in stead).

Learning to Fly / Carousel
Hands On Me
Tall Tales For Spring
House of Seven Swords
Take it Easy
Willows
White Houses
Get Good
Unlock the Lock
Hear the Bells
I Don't Want to Be a Bride

Encore:
A Thousand Miles
The Marching Line

Here are some pictures from the show:

Yeah, I'm in the process of uploading my videos that I took.  It's just taking a super long time right now! And yeah, he kept interrupting and saying stuff like "Do you watch Coven," "You should name the album Dude Ranch," and you just could tell on her and Skye's face that they were slightly annoyed by it. But they were troopers and made a great last show!

Here are the videos that I could upload for now:

It did! Kind of a Day In The Life vibe. Really pretty.

Thanks for the upload, pswik!
