ARETHA'S SB CONCERT COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTER

The opening act was clearly a comic who was not vetted & out of her league. She was unprepared and lost the audience within 20 min only generating applause when she left the stage. Aretha got started at least 35 min late. The most surprising thing was there were not back up singers and a lot of her songs just don't sound right without them. "Jump To It" didn't happen because of that. She held her own on piano solos with long sets that would tire most 70 + performers. Overall I give the show a C plus. The 12 piece orchestra was great but not as effective as it could have been without secondary vocals. It seemed as though the show was thrown together at the last minute and Central Coast concert goers deserve better

ARETHA FRANKLIN THE GREATEST

Took My mom and aunts for the first time visit. They loved the show music they never heard LIVE. The musicians were the best for me the horns were great!!! A Sax Player with braids had a solo he stood out. Does anyone know where i could follow him. Is he a regular with Aretha or Local. Overall the Concert was great for her age she was hanging!!!

ARETHA FRANKLIN AT RAVINIA SEPT. 3RD

Aretha Franklin is one of the most beloved artists of our time. Her fans came out for that reason and were very responsive to her performance which was good but very low key. She performed mostly ballads. She shared with the audience her health battle within a spiritual which was beautiful.
