Alicia Keys concert review…the other Night I Was Lucky Enough To Attend A Sold Out, One Night Show LIVE In ATLANTA From The Mad Talented Alicia Keys.
After multiple cancellations earlier in the week, due to illness, I was in doubt on whether the event would go ahead, but it did & Alicia showed almost no signs or effects from being ill. She was vocally on form, had a much better stage presence than I expected & was accompanied by some vocally talented back ground singers. With a very expensive drink in my hand, & the soulful vocals of Alicia being pounded from the speakers, the evening went down without a hitch. She started the show amongst huge cheers with a shortened versions of ; Ghetto Story, Waiting For Your Love, Where Do We Go From Here & You Don't Know My Name.
Towards the end of the show she performed the now classic track Fallin', with a short burst of the musical inspiration for the song, James Browns' - It's A Man's Man's Man's World. She then proceeded to close the show with her recent smash hits; No One and Teenage Love Affair, this was the highlight of the evening, with a show stopping performance which had every one on their feet, joining in with the 'Oh Oh Oh' towards the end of the track.The evening went far to quickly & I was totally amazed by Alicia's CD quality vocals & solid stage presence, which I really wasn't expecting.
Some random stuff from the concert included the fact that because of the smoking ban in the GA, everyone had to put their mobile phones in the air instead of lighters. Also, the opening introduction video had Alicia in a church & a preacher warning her about the outside world, he had this one line that told her about those 'Lions, Tigers & Snoop Doggs'. Lol
