article imageReview: Sheryl Crow fabulous at the Beacon Theatre in New York Special

New York - On June 28, Grammy-winning songstress Sheryl Crow headlined the iconic Beacon Theatre in New York City, as part of her "Be Myself Tour," for a great turnout.
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real were her special musical guests. She began her eclectic set with a fan-favorite tune "Everyday Is a Winding Road," and it was followed by "A Change Would Do You Good" and her Grammy-winning smash hit "All I Wanna Do," where everybody was reciting the lyrics verbatim.
After "My Favorite Mistake," she delivered with material off her new studio album, which included the title track "Be Myself," as well as "Long Way Back," "Alone in the Dark," and her single "Halfway There."
The highlight vocals of her set was her smooth rendition of the psychedelic "There Goes the Neighborhood," and the infectious "Strong Enough." Equally noteworthy was her crisp version of "The First Cut is the Deepest," and the autobiographical "Leaving Las Vegas," which had a retro vibe to it.
A Missouri native, Crow continued with such new album cuts as "Rest of Me" and "Roller Skate." The rock goddess closed with one of her classic hits "If It Makes You Happy," and on an upbeat note with the cheery "Soak Up the Sun." The control she maintained over her voice over the latter tune was quite impeccable.
Crow returned for an encore that included a stirring rendition of "Midnight Rider," where she was joined by opener Lukas Nelson, as they paid homage to the late but great southern rock legend Gregg Allman (of The Allman Brothers Band). It was followed by her hypnotic "I Shall Believe," as she took her fans on a trip down memory lane to her Tuesday Night Music Club album.
Digital Journal chatted with Sheryl Crow about her new album Be Myself, and her summer tour.
The Verdict
Overall, Sheryl Crow is the real deal when it comes to being able to captivate a live audience. Her vocals were sultry and heavenly, and for anybody who has yet to see her perform live, they are truly missing out. She looked and sounded as good as ever, and her entire band rocked as well. Her prowess on electric and acoustic guitars is unparalleled. A ticket to a Sheryl Crow concert should be on every music fan and listener's bucket-list. Congratulations Sheryl Crow, for a superlative live performance at the Beacon.
