Last night, September 6, 2019 I had the pleasure of seeing Brandi Carlile in Philadelphia. Let me just say: WOW! She was incredible! Mavis Staples opened up for her and for an 80 year old woman, Mavis brought the house down! So when Brandi came on around 9:20pm, she came out like a hurricane. She opened with Hold Out Your Hand and got the whole place pumped. From there she launched into Wherever Is Your Heart. Probably the highlight was, of course, The Story. That was such a great song to hear live! But the fun didn’t stop there. Brandi pulled out ALL the stops for this show. She had special guests. One of which was Lukas Nelson. That was awesome! But probably my favorite song of the night was The Joke. That was awesome live! Brandi has so much charisma and really knows how to work a crowd and connect to her audience. Long story short…if you ever get the chance, go see this incredible woman! You will not regret it! This was one Hell of a birthday gift! I want to thank my sister Caroline for the ticket. So that’s my review of my first but hopefully not last Brandi Carlile show. Thanks for reading!
