[Live Review] Newcastle, UK – 6 December 1997

December 6, 1997
Newcastle Arena
Newcastle, UK

Review by Jim

Sheryl Crow demonstrated what a talent she is at Newcastle Arena here tonight. Her performance along with that of the rest of the band was excellent. I particularly liked her rendition of “Home” where Sheryl played the keyboard at the front of the stage and presented a haunting version of one of her more recent releases in England. Sheryl showed her versatility by not only playing the guitar but also the keyboard, accordion and harmonica. This, together with her obvious talent for song writing, once again proved my theory that the really good bands write and play there own music. The show lasted for about an hour and forty minutes and among the many songs played I was most impressed with “Leaving Las Vegas”, “If It Makes You Happy” and “Every Day Is A Winding Road”. Appropriately, whilst Sheryl was playing the accordion, the group included the Who’s “Squeeze Box” which went down very well. As you can tell, I was very impressed and would recommend any one to go see Sheryl and the rest of the band if they get the chance. Keep it up Sheryl you were great!!!
