First up, Tiffany. Wow, she hasn't aged well. Wow her singing also hasn't aged well. Still kind of fun.coopasonic wrote: ↑Thu Aug 02, 2018 10:59 amFor our anniversary I bought the wife and I tickets to relive our respective first concerts. They were different artists but they are doing a show together nearby. Yes, the wife and I are going to see Debbie Gibson and Tiffany (and Lisa Lisa) in concert. I finally found a situation where I think I will truly regret having given up alcohol.
Second act, Lisa Lisa. Wow, she hasn't aged well. Wow her singing held up very well. Wow the sound system in this place sucks. Her dancers and backup singers were really good too.
Finally, Debbie Gibson. Hey, she has kept herself together pretty well. Huh, the mic isn't work and the mic on her piano is also not working. OK, they got the mics fixed... and why is she yelling into the mic? The sound was terrible and her voice was really harsh. There was one line where she actually sang and sounded really good but other than that it was very harsh. Not very Debbie Gibson. The production value in the choreography and such was really pretty good for such a low rent show, but the sound... dear god. The best part was when she did a medley of the artists that inspired her which was a bunch of 80s pop that took me back.
All in all, Lisa Lisa was the star of the show. It was easily the act I was least looking forward to, but I came away a fan.
Oh the crowd... a lot of mid 40s women showed up for the "Women of the 80s" show, can you imagine that? It might have been 15% guys. I told my wife to stay with me and keep me safe.
