SARA BAREILLES AND EMILY KING SHINE AT THE FOX THEATER
My wife and I attended one of the best concerts of the year Saturday evening - the Sara Bareilles Amidst the Chaos Tour, with guest Emily King. It was clear from the start that the Detroit audience was beyond themselves waiting for Sara to perform with overwhelming applause and genuine affection for one of the best and multi-talented performers of her time. We were lucky enough to hear many of her hits and some selections from her Musical Waitress, which highlighted several of her outstanding band members in duet and harmonizing roles. Sara received several standing ovations and seemed genuinely touched by the warmth and support of the audience. She was humble, warm and generous with her audience interaction and was hugely rewarded in return. Judging by this first concert in her current tour, it seems she is likely to have an amazing two months sharing the show with the rest of the country. If you have the chance to catch her for any of these performances, you owe it to yourself!

AN ENCHANTING EVENING WITH SARA
The first review from the gentleman in Detroit hit the nail on the head. You could feel the palpable excitement from the crowd at Mohegan Sun in CT. And once Sara hit that stage, the mutual affection just grew. Sara sang 21 songs in 2 hours. And with unbelievable kind, and honest vulnerability, the tone she set was one of hope and heart. I got the feeling she laid out everything onstage and the audience paid her back with adulation and love. Her voice was crystal clear and at times, ethereal. Her voice on Satellite Call was unbelievably beautiful. All in all, with the smattering of new , old and broadway tunes, the beautiful set, the excited crowd, the clarity of her voice and Sara’s genuine emotion , I’d say this is the best concert I’ve ever been lucky enough to see (I’m 56 and I’ve been to a few. ) If you get the chance, go see this wonderfully talented woman and equally talented band. An aside: Mohegan Sun is not the best concert venue. It was not built with acoustics in mind (I believe it’s a venue for professional basketball).

SARA BAREILLES FIRST STOP ON TOUR
Very good show as expected with a strong cast accompanying Sara and her magnificent voice and lyrics. Only negative was the staging of the band with Sara hidden behind her piano to roughly a third of the audience. The same for her excellent keyboard and vocalist that sat invisible behind the piano to the same 3rd of the audience. Please address this Sara and I will give yoy 5+ stars!
