Opener Kenny White was really good and
entertaining. Venue was awesome. Weather
was perfect. Judy and Steven were good but so
historically significant that it was just fun to be
with them. They obviously love what they do.
They are not 25 anymore, but still brought
plenty of passion. Thank you!
We enjoyed Stephen Stills immensely. I thought Judy was having an off night, but what do I know. Judy's version of Maria is so appropriate given what is happening in our country this week. And Stills did a KILLER job on "For what it's worth" was amazing. The Ryman is my favorite venue.

STILLS COLLINS SHOW
We sat in the first row of the riser section, maybe 21 B. Great view with no blockage. Opener
Kenny Whites was great with the a udience! Worth a listen For Sure. Stills I have been a fan
of since the Springfield days and we were somewhat disappointed. His guitar work is not up
to his level. His voice was very hard to understand and his timing was not good.
The band sounded unpracticed and unrehersed. It seemed kind of last minute, like they
had never played with Stills. Or Stills couldn't keep up. Or age, something that affects us all.
Judy was just Exactly what I expected and only hoped for; Elegant , beautiful and that voice
so sweet and high ! We would like to see Miss Collins again but we'd like to see her alone.
Judy was...well Judy. She can still sing and play.
Her vocals carried the group through the entire set.
Stephen was NOT good...at all.
His timing was poor and his play sloppy.
I'm really hoping he was feeling under the weather. Otherwise, Stills has lost his mojo...
It was an interesting concert, and not necessarily in a good way. Our seats were in the Shed, section 6. The site lines were challenging, but we learned to live with it. I wasn't a huge fan of Judy Collins, but she was magnificent and in fine voice for a 79 year old. I've always been a fan of Stephen Stills, but he has seen better days (haven't we all, I guess). They seemed more than a bit out of sync initially, arrangements were weird, and their voices don't really compliment each other - hers sparkling and clear, his quite rough. She's obviously taken good care of herself over the years, Stephen not so much. He seemed hobbled physically, but his guitar playing was OK, under the circumstances. It was abundantly clear that they hadn't rehearsed very much, as the timing between Stills, Collins, and the rest of the band was way off at times. Quite disappointed at the truncated version of "Judy Blue Eyes" for their encore - a terrible way to end the concert. Oh well.
I 've been a livelong fan of both, and have been to Tanglewood often as it's close to home. In short: this was the worst show I've ever seen there! With good seats in the shed, we had to endure terrible harmonies, and Stills' often unintelligible ramblings. The keyboard player overpowered Stills' singing, which may have been by design, as his voiced sounded awful. Judy's voice was wonderful, even though her enthusiasm seemed quite low. And their chemistry seemed very forced. Throughout the 1 1/2 hr show, we watched a steady stream of patrons leave early.
The opening act was very good and professional. That cannot be
said for Stills and Collins. Collins forgot to put her capo on her
guitar on the 2nd song of the act. They had to stop and re-start
"In The Morning" . We can forgive that, but not the horrible
vocals, the clear lack of rehearsal and the tired stories of meeting
50 years ago. The tickets were 100 dollars in the shed at
Tanglewood. We left after 4 songs, disappointed and feeling as
though we got ripped off. The bar was set VERY low for this
performance. These are two fairly elderly performers, But to go
on stage and play in such a fashion is not acceptable. Songs
that we might recognize were horribly re-orchestrated" to such a
degree that we really had to dig deep to find any semblance of
the original. Stills garbled when he spoke and was even worse
when he sang. Collins' vocals were acceptable , but did not blend
with stills. A very sad way to end two great careers.
The bar was not met, but they "jumped the shark".
