If you clicked on this thread, it must mean you are a Harry Connick, Jr. fan. He played here in Pittsburgh Wednesday, April 11. What a show! I had Row C and had to attend the concert by myself. If my husband were to join me, we would of had to sit in Row Y. (Hey, I had to ditch the husband so I could get a better seat. You understand, don't you?)
The stage was set as a New Orleans setting, complete with ceiling fans and street lamps. There was a mural of a French Quarter house on the back wall. New Orleans was the influence for this tour, and the music reflected that. He started out with Come By Me and continued with some of his new songs on his new album, Oh My Nola. The audience was really into everything he did and cheered the most when he would get up from behind the piano and sing to the audience from center stage. At one point he was showing us him moves and danced up a storm.
Harry is a very funny man and inbetween songs he would tell funny stories about his songs or his personal life. We were all in stiches. The show was only one hour and 45 minutes with just one encour, but it was a rockin time. Here are some pictures. Sorry they are so fuzzy. I sort of took them on the sly.
If you would like to donate to his fund to support those in New Orleans after the hurrican, you can visit his website:
Thanks for reading my review. If you have a chance to see Harry live, don't pass it up. You will not be disappointed.
