Eddie Money live?

Has anyone see Eddie Money in concert lately? Thinking of going to see him next month and want to make sure his voice is still decent. He's playing a mid sized hall not far from me and the tickets prices seem reasonable, always liked the mans music so thought I might give it a go. Havent seen his TV show or anything as I'm a casual fan...

Might want to check out some recent youtube videos, not very promising.

Re: Eddie Money live?

I saw him about 10 years ago, and it was terrible.

Be prepared for him pointing the mic at the audience to SING. EVERY. CHORUS. of his hit songs. And most of his vocals elsewise to be shaky, at best.

And a lot of slow, bluesy numbers that go nowhere.

he and Neil Diamond should hit the road for the “C’mon, You Know the Words!” Tour.

I know it's merely a symbolic gesture, but as an audio guy well versed in microphone pickup patterns, I find that "point the mic at the audience" thing to be soooooo stupid.

I had a friend see him at a casino he performed at in Washington (state) last month and she said he sucked.

Re: Eddie Money live?

damn, I will most likely pass unless I check stubhub and find a killer deal the day of the show. This is the reason I hate seeing older acts, I'd rather remember them as they were back in the day as a lot of performers unless they have been at it all along (Petty before he died, Springsteen and the like) . I'd love to see the Who but I don't think it will be worth the money. A cheap ticket like this has more of an appeal to me on the off chance they still have it..

I saw The Who in 2016 and it was well worth it. They’ve been my favorite band since junior high. At first I refused to see them because Moon wasn’t around, then after Entwistle died I realized I fucked up. Eventually they came to Milwaukee on a day I happened to be off work and man I’m so glad I went.

Re: Eddie Money live?

Saw him at a free show back at the end of September. He still has a lot of energy, but it comes across as if he's coked up. And like a previous poster mentioned, he 'cheats' by having the audience or band sing more often than you'd like. Not sure if it's still the case, but when I saw him, his daughter sang backup and one of his sons was on drums.

Re: Eddie Money live?

according to setlist.fm Jesse Money actually sings lead vocals on a pair of songs... so I would guess she's been promoted from only backup vocals.

He sounded awful in that Geico commercial a few years ago.
