Better Than: Listening to "Stairway to Heaven" again.

At first it made no sense that a medley of Led Zeppelin's greatest hits would be playing at the Fillmore Miami Beach as the seated crowd waited for Tori Amos to take the stage. If you would pick Kate Bush as number one on Tori Amos' list of musical heroes, you'd probably put Robert Plant and Jimmy Page somewhere around Tupac and Weird Al. But even a casual listen to both acts' lyrics reveals a shared love for the type of paperback fantasy novels where they always spell little, magical winged creatures as f-a-e-r-i-e-s.

The opening act was Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou, an English husband and wife who strum acoustic guitars and sing so closely into the same microphone that it seemed they might kiss at any moment.

But judging from the audience's audible impatience during their set, it appeared the night's attendees might not have the attention span for a long night of music. For more than a half hour, Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou were just too pleasant and polite to drown out the chit-chat and steal the attention away from the bright light of people's Instagram accounts.

However, when Tori Amos came out with the energy of a mythological creature, phones were being used only to record her raw, channeled emotions, and the only crowd noise was the occasional, random, awkward scream of "I love you, Tori!"

I feel like I wrote this review.  I was appalled at the lack of respect the crowd showed for either artist.  I was tempted to turn around multiple times and ask the people behind me why they paid money to come to a show to carry on a conversation.  Is very sad how our society has the attention span of a gnat... and they would rather tweet, text and facebook their life away.  Screw that.  Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou were beautiful artists that deserve nothing but respect.  I was the first one down to buy their album.  Let me tell you it was worth every penny.  As for Tori, her shows can get very hypnotic.  She is very mesmerizing and mellow.  I can see if your not a fan, you could get somewhat bored.  Thus if your not a fan STAY HOME!  I believe it was her best show I've seen.  I loved that she threw in alot of her earlier songs.  On top of that, how gorgeous is this woman!?


All in all I would definitely think twice on attending another live show.  Im very jaded by this experience.


PLEASE STFU and enjoy live music and art.  This is what life is all about.  Experiencing LIVE life... not social media...

Really this review? The first paragraph alone is horrible. Why is Zeppelin such a random choice? She released covers of "Whole Lotta Love" and "Thank You" over 20 years ago. And why is Kate Bush hypothetically picked as a "number one musical hero"? What does any of that have to do with the actual show?
