We arrived late for Juliette Lewis, so only caught a song or two- she was OK, her band was great- but seriously better than Cat Power! They were so dreadful, we had to leave until the Pretenders came on- and they were truly amazing! Chrissie...continued

I would have given the event five stars, simply based on the Pretenders, but the first two acts were so difficult to sit through I just couldn't.

One of the best concerts I've seen at the Greek. For once, the sound was ok; Chrissie was in fine shape...her voice hasn't changed in 30 years! The band was nothing short of TERRIFIC!!!!!!

The Pretenders were AWESOME....Crissy is the BEST...the new guitarist shreds...I love Chan's voice...and Juliette rocked. I love to watch shows at The Greek. Not only is the location convenient...but the traffic is never as bad as anywhere...continued
