Just got home from Brussels. The show was amazing, I can't believe I finally got to see Vanessa Carlton. Got there early, just to see where the venue was and by chance Vanessa was doing soundcheck at that time. I got to hear (but not see) Vanessa sing "Get Good" (which she didnt perform at the actual show) and Take it easy and Blue Pool. At some point I unexpectedly saw her just a few feets away from me, she didnt do eye contact and was talking to someone so I did not disturb her. That was a bit heartbreaking haha. I was all ready with my Liberman copy and a pen
The setlist was rather short. She did all of Liberman with the exception of Ascension (has she ever performed it??) and Carousel, Hear the Bells and The Marching Line (which was very emotional since she dedicated it to those who died or lost someone in the Paris and Brussels attack). I was surprised she didnt do an encore and sing ATM. This seemed to disappoint some people who probably know her only for that song. I didnt watch any live recordings from that tour so I was very pleased to see that she's touring with Skye Steel!
After the show, I chatted a bit with the nice guy at the merch table. He said that Vanessa was very tired and went straight back to her hotel. He did however ask for my e-mail and said he would hand it to Vanessa. I'm not gonna get my hopes up but that was a very nice gesture! In case you're reading this merch table guy : thank you
