Nora Jones is a huge talent and her band was excellent. She sounded great but lacked warmth and chattiness us Bostonians expect. I kept looking at my watch wondering when she would do Don't Know Why I Didn't Come. Her song choices were not amongst the best as they dragged and you never knew when they would end. For musical quality I would give it 5 stars but performance wise I think a smaller more intimate venue would have been better.

Singing was great. Loved that.No showmanship. Introduced each band member after every couple
of songs. Did it when the audience was still clapping.Could not hear their names. She was not even
intoduced at the start.We were sitting in the back and didn't even know it was her at first. She
never said hi , bye or anything at the end. Didn't know it was the end til the lights came on. No
interaction with the audience at all.Still like her though.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY
Like the artist's music but dull on stage. Never even said "hello Pittsburgh" (not sure if she knew where she was), never said anything positive or about other musicians on stage, never said anything about her songs (e.g., explain inspiration), only engage the audience once for a few words. Lame light show and lame 2 song encore. Didn't improvise much at all. I was hoping when she plugged in the electic guitar that she would then liven up. Nope, just played one song w/ it and never jammed. Possibly the most boring concert I've ever seen since 35 years of concert-going. Paid around $400 for really good seats and actually enjoyed the warm-up comedian more than Ms. Jones.

RED ROCKS WAS THE BEST PART
She sounded beautiful and that didn’t disappoint, but we could have just listened to the CD at home. There was no interaction or warmth. She comes off as aloof and ambivalent tgat there is an audience. Half of the venue left mid concert. It was a steady stream out.

JESUS BAND AS OPENER
This was the most offensive experience. The opening band for Nora Jones was a Christian group that sang Jesus songs for a half an hour. I am fueled by indignation that in a country where Christian values are being imposed on the women of this country that I would buy a ticket for a Nora Jones concert that I assumed was non secular and be subjected to 45 minutes of religious music. This was offensive and off putting.
Jo from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
If we didn’t have to climb over 6 people we would have left early. Warm up act was a comedian and when he was done we had to wait 20 minutes for her to come on stage. I love her music but onstage you can’t make out a word. No interaction with the audience. Like she didn’t even want to be there. She just sang and played instruments. I would have preferred to be listening at home where it was more comfortable and a lot cheaper.

BUY THE CD
Her show was, rushed, she didn't say more that a dozen words, if that many, and she sang three songs that sounded like the jazz singer we used to know. Some left early and we left before she did an encore. Most boring show we've ever seen. She looked like she couldn't wait to get out of there.
There were yellow lights coming on and off, I tried to find a pattern or logic, but didn't. Also her last minute decision to have everyone searched and and spread for a metal detector, given the upscale venue, was as if she thought she was in a teen stadium in the US.
