Caught the Joanne World Tour on Friday night, fantastic show and phenomenal production. I have seen Gaga i think about 6 or 7 times now, every tour. This definetly ranks up these as one of my favorites next to the Monster Ball first leg in 2009. The setlist is a perfect mix of album cuts from the new JOANNE album in addition to some staples and a few randoms. We did the GA route which was a blast, she did 3 stages so she moved around quite a bit. The highlight of the night was being right in front of the glass piano as she sang a piano version of Edge of Glory. I'm planning to go back when she returns December 16th.
I have seen NIN 3 times and I am longtime fan. I started listening to them in 94 when "Closer" came out. I remember I had a giant poster of Trent Reznor in my bedroom, looking angry in black leather. This particular night was at Planet Hollywood a few years back. Trent gives you his all and he still has it.
Saturday night I had French Montana at Marquee, who is one of my favorite artists to work with. He is always fun, positive and can really make me laugh. One of the best things about working with talent is seeing them hit a high note and enjoying it. French's new music is my favorite of his.
Tonight I caught John Mayer at T-Mobile Arena for his The Search for Everything Tour. I had never seen him live before - amazing musician. The show is broken up into chapters which i liked:
1. Band 2. Acoustic 3. Trio 4. Band (reprise)
He switches it up and keeps fresh, and he makes those faces when he plays guitar. He is funny between songs, throwing out some stand up here and there. Some highlights for me were covers from Jimmy Hendrix, Tom Petty, Mayer staples like "Why Georgia Why" and new material "Love On The Weekend." The acoustic set was amazing...few people can quiet an arena to silence and keep their attention.
Special shout out to LANY who opened the show, who I wasn't familiar with initially but after doing some digging realized I had heard them on Zane Lowe / Apple Music Beats One. LOVED LOVED their set, super lush and sometimes emo.
