Re: “Fiona Apple, last night at the Midland

From a true fan...
First things first, despite the critiques that will follow I thought she sang amazingly.

but...

#1 She looked pretty rough. My crew and I honestly felt bad for her. Very thin and frazzled.

#2 The guitar player ran a distortion pedal throughout most of the show and sounded horrible. (Blake, if you are reading this, this is Fiona Apple you are playing with, not green day)

#3 She didn't play the piano very much, and when she did it was quiet or muted by the rest of the band.

That is the beginning of my critiques and this comes from a big fan. I had 3rd row seats and her appearance was so distressing I really wanted to go back a few rows so I could focus on her music and not her health. She had a few signs of some emotional issues like her pulling her hair, sitting on the floor, or tugging on her shirt, which she painfully tried to describe as being created by a friend. I was honestly sad for her.

From a musical perspective I felt she tried to create a rock show and I honestly think people who know and like her music see her as a combo pianist/ vocalist but her band was taking the lead most of the show and she only sat at the piano a few songs. Even the songs off her most recent album didn't sound very similar to her album which is what people want to see, not your rock renditions. Front of house sound was so poor I think the guy running the PA at any local church would have done better.

I hope she finds what she needs to make her happy(er) and can improve a few things in her life.

And you all are welcome to dislike my post but I am disappointed that I left the performance of one of my favorite artists wondering if she will make it through the tour.
