Rear Orchestra, Rows JJ-RR
How was your experience?
I have looked forward to seeing MS for a long time. This concert was a disappointment. We did not know what to expect, except for great music, and a happy holiday experience. What we got was something different entirely. To boil it all down, they need a major overhaul. !. Please get rid of the background videos. They are poorly done and outdated. They took my attention off the orchestra, and not in a good way. 2. Please get rid of the shameless advertising at the beginning and ending of the concert, i.e. the video of Chip Davis with the Vegas show girls. It was not funny or clever, it was sad. 3. Please get a new musical arrangement. The music is good, but the list of musical numbers were arranged in such a manner that you felt deflated and then flat out sleepy by intermission. 4. Add some upbeat, festive entertainment to the show. By the second half of the show my husband and I were looking at each other laughing because it was so bad. I felt embarrassed for MS. We would have left early but we were with friends so we stayed to the bitter end. Turns out they wanted to leave also. Sorry MS, I love your music but the concert was yucky.
