5 Great Performances Captured at The Ridgefield Playhouse
There is nothing like seeing one of your favorite bands in an intimate setting.
I was lucky enough to see The Go-Go's at the Ridgefield Playhouse last week. They provided the music of my youth, from "Vacation" to "Cool Jerk" to "Head Over Heels", I am a big fan.
Seeing them perform all of those hits and more at the relatively small Playhouse was a treat.
As I looked around before the show, I noticed that we are very lucky to have such a venue that actually ponies up the cash to bring these performers to our area.
Over the years, many a huge name has appeared on that stage, here are a few that I found interesting:
Cornell wails out a really great version of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun".
This song always sends me back to the glorious 70's when I hear it.
Simon and Brickell took the Playhouse stage in January 2013 for A Concert for Hope and Healing
Buckingham busted out a solo acoustic version of the Fleetwood Mac classic for a lucky Playhouse audience
I love when performers improvise and bring the audience into their show. This is a perfect example of someone taking the time out of their day to make a lifetime memory for a fan.
