She then shocked alot of the long time fans when she said I am gonna take some of you guys back a little --your gonna love this!! (we thought Love To Love You !! ) .She did the entire My Man Medley---- OH MY GOD ! IT WAS JUST FABULOUS ! I had never seen her do that.
On The Radio was next, then the cute and now extended skit about the red Ferrari, which led to Enough Is Enough . DREAM ALOT'S THEME
( I Will Live For Love) was next, all you can hear were people saying this sounds better than the CD -- Her voice was so intense during this song .
COSTUME CHANGE !!
She went and dried off - it was hot. Then came back in a tight black dress an all of her songs were printed all over the dress in silver glitter -- BAD GIRLS across her chest....... boldly, then can dancers and she did the
Bad Girls & Hot Stuff Medley. After that, You're So Beautiful &
Dim All The Lights. The dancers returned for Hard For The Money in which halfway through the song they broke out into a salsa routine --and yes!! Donna salsa danced whirled and was twirled by the dancers-- the place went crazy!!!! She then tried - yeah tried - to say good night and thank you, as she was walking off stage -- the park was roaring -- "More-More - More !!" Of course she played them -- "one more??? really ?? OK--If you insist..... LAST DANCE, LAST CHANCE" -- You could hardly hear her because all of Universal Studios was singing with her. She did a nice long version of
LAST DANCE. The crowd was soooo crazy -- she did 4 encores to the ending .This was one of the most amazing concerts of hers I have been to.... wish you could have made it.......
Her smile, her eyes, her hair (it was long and flowing).
The crowd (we) went wild when she first appeared on stage and sang MacArthur Park. She seemed genuinely touched by the overflowing show of affection that the audience poured to the stage. She effortlessly went from one hit to another.
Could It Be Magic/ This Time I Know Its For Real/ Dim All The Lights/ Enough Is Enough (Here she went on this story about being in love with a man with a red Ferrari and the subsequent disappointment she suffered when he asked her for money - but the manner with which she told the story demonstrated her gift for musical comedy. She was soooo funny and gracious. We all laughed at her expressions and heard others talking about how surprising it was to find her so endearingly funny.) Bad Girls/ Hot Stuff. But I particularly surprised when she sang 2 new songs from The Journey : You're So Beautiful
and I Will Live For Love - this last one sounded to me like "musical poetry". Her gestures and fierceness with which she approached the lyrics stunned me greatly - her voice - clear and impeccable reaching those high notes in the middle of the high tempos, it was simply "magical". She kept smiling saying "I Love You Back" in almost every song... Needless to say, we didn't want the concert to end. You could tell the audience WAS IN IT WITH HER - we didn't want her to "let go of her".... I thought it was very interesting her second choice for the dress that she wore in the second half of the performance ; Tight black and silver (perhaps a bit too tight for her full figure) but, the dress had the names of several of her songs all over it. Across her bosom
"Bad Girls", underneath Hot Stuff and you could read
Love (with a heart) To Love You Baby, Rumour Has It,
The Deep and so on. Very "clever" and sexy. You could tell she was proud of that dress.
As an interesting side note. I parked the car with the valet parking at the studios thinking that it would be the best idea. When the show finished and I went to pick up the car the line was endless!!! We stood on line for approximately 30 minutes (unheard of for Valet parking) and people were getting upset. But then the parking supervisor said out loud that the backlog was due to Donna Summer's concert! They didn't think that many people would show up all at once for the concert! We started applauding and chanting her name...
Well Cathy I don't have any pics but I am very anxious to see them on your site.
It was a magical/beautiful/exciting evening with Donna Summer. I hope she will manage to do more shows - I think she needs to experience first-hand the love and appreciation we all have for her art and music.
Let me just first say..... work it Donna.... she is alot of fun!!!
I will write a full report and tell you all about it.... got some pics too.... GRIN!....but in short she looked great.... sounded great (of course!!).... No news of a new album or anything of the sort..... BUT she did sing "I Will Live For Love".... this was the highlight of the show for me.... I had goose bumps.... Donna fans would have been soooo proud..... my fourteen year old son and my boy friend... (who once crushed many (Grrrrr!!!) of my favorite and very rare performances of her on video!!!).... both thought she was great.
Donna I love ya.... you are such a great performer.... I am very excited and wait very eagerly for your future recordings.
Then by email he added:
It was a great show..... I loved the way she did Live For Love.... when she sang the part "the poet must have known......"...she brought the tempo down and then back up.... I wish it was that way on record because it really has a great punch. The dress she wore when she first came out was very classy.... great color for her and draped over her booty-licious perfect.
