My first attempt at this was as a straight concert review but I was cracking too many jokes and didn’t take notes anyway. It would have undersold the experience:
This was one of the 2 best concerts I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen a lot of great shows.
Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention (I was young… Pops played for him… he scared me!), Earth Wind & Fire (classic lineup), Genesis, Phil Collins, U2, Luther Vandross, Anita Baker, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Peter Gabriel, D’angelo, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Seal, Lenny Kravitz, Nikka Costa, P!nk, Jonny Lang… all were sick shows.
The only show that rated higher for me was Prince @Staples Center seven years ago. He played the hits. In the round. The Time opened. Dave Grohl is a bad man but Prince with Morris Day and Jerome? Hammer couldn’t touch that one.
