  • admìttedly I have not had the privilege of seeing live performances of the astounding talented list above but my very favorite that I did see and hear live was Eartha Kitt around 95 in Vancouver she was all that above  and more...next to her it would  be Etta James early 80s in Toronto at Albert's Hall from the hall way on the stairs at a sold out performance ..incredible vibe and with no visuals was euphoric...

    Until I made my list, I didn’t realize how fortunate I have been to see all these female performers.
    But I’d take out quite a few to have seen Eartha & Etta! And probably switch out all for the chance to have seen Nina Simone❤️

    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.

    I saw Carly Rae Jepsen a few weeks back and man did she blow the roof off of the Chicago Theater. All bops.

  • dudemandudeman Posts: 2,004
    Mavis Staples
    Yup. She is amazing. 

    Tracy Chapman was great live. 

    I saw Fiona Apple in 97. She had recently had eye surgery, IIRC. She seemed quite comfortable on stage and I thought she was incredible.

    So many, but I will narrow it down to Sharon Jones and Patti Smith. I saw Sharon twice. Both times I was dog tired, but got completely energized watching her saying fuck you to cancer and just dancing and singing her ass off. Got to get on stage and dance with her, along with a bunch of other folks, at a Fillmore show. I've seen Patti twice, but the most memorable was when she played at a book fair in San Francisco. She played in a small area with just her and a guitarist. It was like I was seeing her in someone's large living room and there was a window behind her with the outside rain streaming down.
    1991- Hollywood Palladium, California with Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains -RIP Magazine Show Oct. 6th
    1992- Lollapalooza, Irvine, California
    Nothing since then. I suck.
    2016- Fenway Park, Boston - Both glorious nights

    Just saw Rhiannon Giddens a few months back. Unbelievable. She played a small venue in Ennis of all places. Apparently she's been living in Ireland for a couple of years. Even sends her kids to an Irish speaking school.
  • eddieceddiec Posts: 3,019
    So Sinead O'Connor is playing her first show in 4 years. Happens to be a small venue in the city I live. Capacity of the place is about 250 people. She's been an absolute train wreck the last few years. Most of that due to mental health issues unfortunately. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning. I'm debating whether to go or not. My wife (who is Irish) has no desire. I'll probably pull the trigger and go.
