Neil Diamond @ CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb., April 14 – “I’ve seen a lot of shows, but I’ve never seen a crowd cheer quite like they did Friday at the CenturyLink Center. … And it helps that Diamond still sings like a master. I’ve seen a lot of his peers, and most of them don’t retain that much range as they age. You’re not supposed to sound quite that good into your mid-70s, but luckily for Diamond, he’s always been bass-y, so he still sounds about the same.” – Kevin Coffey / Omaha World-Herald
Bastille @ UCCU Center in Orem, Utah, April 13 – “Even if Smith’s periodic dancing was awkward, it was genuine, and far less awkward than what seemed to be obvious choreography Smith didn’t seem to be emotionally behind during the beginning of the setlist. It was when Smith let loose, and encouraged the crowd to do the same, that things got fun.” – Braley Dodson / Daily Herald
Dockville Festival, Hamburg, Germany
August 21, 2016
Low Cut Connie @ Snug Harbor in Charlotte, N.C., Nov. 1, 2015 – “There appeared to be 15 to 20 people there to enjoy their brews and the band, and maybe another 12 to 15 who appeared to be regulars who were just content with whoever the house had decided to put on that night. This did not stop the band from gallivanting around and putting on their ‘as advertised’ vivacious live show at full force. The band put all their effort into creating an interactive and electrifying performance.” – Colt Jensen / Huffington Post
Maggie Rogers @ Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, N.Y., April 12 – “She interacted with the crowd often, telling little snippets of the stories and emotions behind her songs. It didn’t feel like she was just going through the motions, or like you were watching her from behind a pane of glass as if she was an actress in a play. With Rogers, it seems like what you see is what you get, and the warmth that she exuded was so refreshing given the prevalence of personal brands and social media influencers these days.” – Carmen Chan / Atwood Magazine
