Re: “Lana Del Rey: The Norman F-cking Rockwell Tour

You could tell by the early evening traffic as we were winding up through the Berkeley streets passing fraternity and sorority houses that something was going on. As we crept closer to the WRH Greek Theater, the excitement started to boil to hurry up to get in to see Lana Del Rey. I quickly dropped off my carload curbside and continued to crawl along in my car to find parking for the sold out concert.
Once in line it moved quickly as the worry that the show would start without us. Inside we viewed a huge scene of people & navigated to our GA grass seating.
Lana did wait to start her show for all the last to get in!
She began her show by just showing up on stage. The highly mixed Bay Area crowd went wild-without ever even saying a word. If she moved the fans cheered.
Her first song Norman Fu*^ing Rockwell was a Mello opening song for the excitement that had built up but you hear a true artists gentle soul and start to feel it as you settle in on a beautiful Sunday evening in T-shirt type weather.
Going through her misc songs lists she then announced that she had a very special guest that was going to come out and join her, the crowd cheered as she introduced Joan Baez and for most of the early 20 something crowd it was like shoulders up, who? Joan joked about it as she said Hello children and then herself being cool because her Grand daughter saw her in better eyes because she was performing with LDR!
Little did 90% of the crowd know that they were witnessing a living legend folk artist perform a Dylan tunes and one of her own. I must admit that Joan sounded and looked great.
Another surprise guest was Adam Cohen singing a duet with Lana of his fathers song Chelsea Hotel #2.
Songs that stuck out to me were Born to Die, Video Games, her heart felt Summertime Sadness & my favorite Doin Time from Sublime. Not too many artists could take that song & make it sound so good.
My only complaint was the aging or sophomore sound system that could surely use some fine tuning to accentuate Lanas amazing range in her voice and give her outstanding band the fine pitch sound it deserved.
Also her 20 set song sets seemed too short. It seemed like the concert just started...then the concert was over. Maybe I just wanted more.
I left knowing that I just witnessed another future living legend from a song writer that leaves you thinking and you are still singing the songs because they were still playing in your head long after the concert was over.
