After years of concert-going, I’ve discovered that the performers that I enjoy the most are the ones who talk to the audience. A few years ago, I went to see a Matchbox20 show. While they are one of my favorites, I was surprised when Rob Thomas, the lead singer, didn’t really talk to us. I had gotten spoiled by my other faves and had come to expect banter but left feeling like I had missed something.
Michael Buble is one of my favorite performers. He’s a great singer and quite entertaining. I’ve probably been to 4 of his shows. Each time, he never fails to engage with the audience and provide a great time for everyone. He is quite the ham, too, but most people never get to see his funny side unless they go to a concert. So I was quite happy to see that he was in a skit on last night’s Saturday Night Live with John Hamm. Check it out.
