[1129] k.d. lang concert review in bridgewater hall/u.k.@Posted by:watcher Date:2008/07/31(Thu) 03:17   HomePage
4.jpegdid any k.d. lang fans here attend this show or any of the recent uk shows and be kind enough to do a review?

there are also alot of usa concert dates in the fall 2008 to look for...and i believe asian dates as well.

this is a newspaper review and nice photo from concert.

kd lang @ Bridgewater Hall
Mike Caulfield
30/ 7/2008

HAVING effectively weathered the media cyclone brought on via the success of eIngénuef and a well-publicised gcoming outh back in 1992, sweeping along with it a few Grammy awards and celebrity party invites galore for good measure, kd lang appears far more comfortable, in control and jovial than a past reputation would lead you to believe.

If her grand tunes and forceful larynx suggest therefll always be a spot available on the Las Vegas strip for her, the huge smile that creeps across her face each time the thunderous applause erupts suggests that seeing the eyes of her followers is just as important these days.

Taking to the stage in a full dazzling white suit for the seductive pulse of eUpstreamf from her recently released long player eWatershed' - her first album of new material for some eight years, after a daring covers collection featuring songwriting stalwarts and fellow country men/women Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Neil Young.

Stretching beyond the Nashville restraints for something with a more contempory spice, newer tracks eI Dream of Springf and eOnce In A Whilef have a classic edge whilst still remaining within ear shot of her more country-fried roots, fitting evenly alongside comfortably established numbers.

Blow the roof off

But from the first time her vocals near blow the roof off the Bridgewater Hall itfs obvious that Ms lang possesses something sadly lacking from cheap Saturday night televised talent contests; an epic warble of star quality, and the smarts to known when to unleash or scale back - take note Christina!

Though tackling Leonard Cohenfs eHallelujahf, with over-egging hand gestures and theatric pained facial expressions is a bold and brave thing to attempt (if your namefs not Jeff Buckley), tonight earns a standing ovation.

As does her breakthrough hit eConstant Cravingf the encore appearance of hayseed early favourite ePay Dirtf and a wistful run-through of eMiss Chatelainef - complete with comedy pirouettes and graceless dramatics.

Whilst her pitch-perfect vocal flights hog most of the spotlight, her presence and comfort addressing the audience and bantering with her expert backing line-up is just as warming to observe.

So, if the venues in 2008 are somewhat more modest than the stages regularly filled when eIngénuef was in most households lang certainly doesnft give any less of a powerhouse performance.

10.jpegkd was orgasmic! Her voice seemed more powerful, richer, smoother, more luxurious than ever and she looked adorable in every way... As usual her humour was seeping through too c/o both her lush lyrics and the occassional mini intro. I was besotted - she kept hearing screams of 'I love you kd' [I bet they weren't even vegetarians!] I was melting not with the heat but with her presence, she gave us two encores, and she got plenty of standing ovations. This big boned gal is hers anytime!

[1120] Toby Keith's New Movie@Posted by: Date:2008/07/19(Sat) 05:25  
1.jpegHi everybody, who else is excited for Toby Keith's new movie "Beer For My Horses", also starring Ted Nugent and Rodney Carrington (out on 8/8)? It looks like it will be pretty funny, plus its cool to see Toby acting in another movie. The soundtrack looks really good too (releases 8/12). It features a couple Toby songs and "Off the Hillbilly Hook", by Trailer Choir is the theme song. It looks like it has a great mix of artists. Check out the track listing here:

What do ya think?

1.jpegI am waiting to order it until the price goes down and the reviews are in. I like the idea that they did provide a Deluxe version however. I'm sure I'll end up buying it but please do some reviews.

[935] Re: k.d. lang new album watershed out in 2008@Kate - 2008/01/15(Tue) 01:30  

1.jpegI like the songs but I think it's expensive. I will wait till the price drops alittle I hope. I was so happy that she wrote more songs. =)

[956] Re: k.d. lang new album watershed out in 2008@Inka - 2008/02/01(Fri) 00:28  

1.jpegI have got the CD. I love it. I hope she comes to Germany. It is sad that only I enjoy record and no tours or tv.

1.jpegI found the album more depressing that good myself.

[977] Re: k.d. lang new album watershed out in 2008@ - 2008/02/19(Tue) 03:41   HomePage

10.jpegThat's odd, depressing is the last thing I'd describe it as. Oh well, we cant all think the same I suppose-I didn't like Hymns of the 49th Parallel that much.....

[1046] Re: k.d. lang new album watershed out in 2008@Ken - 2008/03/01(Sat) 23:52  

1.jpegI got the album and going next week. It's very different. I'm not sure what to think.

1.jpegI have the Deluxe Version. I thought the Valentine Card was really sweet. I didn't like the album too much in the beginning but now I like it very much.

[1059] Re: k.d. lang new album watershed out in 2008@Stacy - 2008/06/09(Mon) 06:25  

1.jpegI have Watershed. I didn't like the album at first but after I saw her in concert I liked it alot better. I hope she keeps making original albums and never stops singing.
