Muse @ Rexall Place

Long time no review, but I have come back with a new concert review for you all! I have never seen Muse live before in my life, but they were definitely one of my favourite bands to listen to. This show has moved them from one of my favourites to listen to, to the best show of my life! The crowd was warned by opener, Silversun Pickups that we should hold onto the back of our heads because our minds were about to be “f’in blown away”. We were not disappointed at all.

Sheryl Crow @ Rexall Place

Well I hate to say it, but the best thing I took away from this performance was the navy t-shirt from the merch table.

I was not impressed at all with Sheryl’s performance. First off she could barely walk in the high heels she was wearing, which made her look like she was walking around drugged or drunk. The sound was atrocious. They blasted it trying to fill the not-even-close-to-a-sellout-crowd-in-the-arena. It was just horrible! Add to that, Sheryl tried within the first two songs to get crowd interaction. Wrong! You need to build up your bond with the crowd before you can ask things of them. Plus when you have a less than stellar opening band you have to work extra hard to earn the $60-$100 ticket price.
