There’s not much I won’t do — legally, that is — for great concert tickets.
Sarah Brightman’s performance at the Honda Center was supposed to have taken place about six months ago, but her tour was postponed. Tonight is finally the night.
I’ve seen her before, and her show is mesmerizing. Captivating. Enchanting. It’s the kind of show that leaves you wondering if you dreamt it, or if it was real.
It is very much real.
If you ever have a chance to see her, go. You won’t regret it, even in the cheap seats. It’s a fantastic combination of Cirque du Soleil, Tim Burton, opera and rhythm section-driven rock — all in one. It is fantastically delightful.
For the detail and attention that goes into each of her shows, for the exquisite leading lady quality of each segment of the concert and for the beauty of musicianship, I am thankful.
