New York - On August 13, singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson and O.A.R performed at SummerStage in Central Park in New York City, for a good turnout.
Nathanson commanded the stage with such songs as "Still" and "Sadness," and he delivered on his acoustic cover of Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar of Me," which is off his Pyromattia album. Of course, "Come On Get Higher" was the song that everybody wanted to hear, which he nailed as always. Equally noteworthy was his distinct version of Queen's "Under Pressure." Nathanson closed on an empowering note with "Little Victories," which was soothing, coupled with an inspirational message to it.
