I updated the OP and put the two set lists in.

 

Getting too old for two great shows in two days

 

Have to say I liked the first show the best but liked the two amazing additions to the second.

 

Do hope the weather in January is ok (no snow or ice) so I can do up to a dozen of the shows driving)

 

I thought I was excessive with 7 shows (Plus Antwerp). Good for you. But I feel the same about the weather. 4 of mine will be driving north. Jan/Feb tours are always a gamble. Hoping for the best!

At least we know she still remembers the lyrics to the song, unlike with Old Money

I was #5 in line for the Tuesday show and ended up being first row aligned with her mic. Things started to heat up a few hours before the opening of the doors. "If someone is cutting the line in front of me, neither this person nor I will attend the show tonight because this person will be at the hospital and I'll be in jail". It was hard by my tone to define if I was sarcastic or not.

 

There was another line in front of the doors that gave priority entrance to disable people. They usually are assigned specific seats, they don't get front row in a wheelchair, you know... No stress, but there was this girl with crutches. I looked down to her feet. No plaster, no bandage. Just nice booties. Who wear high heels booties with crutches?! THAT BITCH is faking it to get front row!! I know because that idea crossed my mind once. Of course, when I got in, she was at the barricade right in the center, her crutches leaning against it. My internal reaction: 

 

Spoiler

 

"Gurl, you have a few seconds left to dream at the barricade before security escort your motherfucking ass to the back of the venue" and that's exactly what happened, even though she argued like crazy. "I paid a lot for this ticket, I have the right to be here!!!!!!!!!1". Bitch, don't buy from scalpers. She seriously talked like she was being a discriminated and oppressed individual, a victim of ableism. I can't believe how low people can go.

 

I had an great time at this show. Worth the long waiting time outside under the rain and crazy wind (the tents would go flat like a pancake, it was that windy). It gave me a lot of energy, there was electricity in the air.

 

I've been to 5 LDR shows and I've never seen her so natural on stage. Very confident. Happy. The stars were aligned. It was a good day! Great vocals and dancing tbh. I liked the haircut, she seemed more free when she moved. I didn't mind the pants. If that makes her more comfortable, she can sing in a Snuggie™, I'm fine with it. 

 

She didn't come down to the barricade, but that was ok. I had my second interaction with her. While a shitload of people in the crowd was shouting Gods & Monsters as a special requests, her eyes were scanning the audience and she looked at me like "What about you, what do you want?" and I looked around me like a dork and said "........Gods & Monsters I guess? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ "and she burst laughing. Adorably awkward and precious <3 I was too tired to think, which is good because I had no energy to think about my worries and the fucking meaning of life. I was living in the moment. No singalong, no camera, no purse, nothing to get signed, casual clothes, messy bun. Great feeling! I regret I left the gift I wanted to give her at the YMCA... Well, next time. It's a book that I carried to 3 shows without being able to give it to her, it look so busted lol!

 

The downside: bad acoustics at Terminal 5. I expected it. The sound was muffled, we couldn't hear some instruments, sometimes the sound was flat. Too bad, because Lana and the band was great, but the music didn't reach my soul, I didn't cry which is abnormal. Lana's vocals were great, but I had to close my eyes to hear her better. SOC solo guitar didn't bring me to cloud 9 as usual.

 

The staff at T5 have been amazing with the hardcore fans though. The number system was respected, they were polite and well organized to make sure people wouldn't cut the line. No running, no pushing. Classy.

 

Next shows: Leonard Cohen's tribute in Montréal and her own show in Toronto for the LA to the Moon Tour. Yayyyy!

 

P.s. Thanks to the people who were pushing hard. It's like a back rub and it was a relief to my spine and lumbar, really!

 

P.p.s. 3:14-3:16 lol that girl was also at the show, I recognized her robotic doll voice from this video. Damn, can you imagine being stuck with that voice forever? Can't be taken seriously. People giggled every time she opened her mouth. I thought it was cute.

I did see a few of my pics on your gallery but I think the way you post them there like that is fine without giving credit. It's obvious you're not trying to say they were your own or anything. Or trying to use them in a tweet... Thank you for including them! 

 

Thank you! We really never mean to be malicious or anything - we are just sharing. I am thankful you understand! ♥
