Review: Tiffany brings powerhouse pipes to New York’s Gramercy Theatre (Includes first-hand account)

She shared the stage with Kathryn Dean, who delivered a killer opening set thanks to her crisp vocals.

Tiffany began her show with the spitfire “History,” where she showcased her trademark pipes. “Thank you. How are you guys feeling?” she asked, prior to praising the crowd for singing the new album. “I’m very proud to be here tonight. Thank you for having us.”

The former teen queen noted that she has been living in Nashville for the past nine years, and she went on to introduce her incredible band. It was followed by a solo, piano-driven rendition of “A Million Miles Away,” which really tugged at the heart, as yellow lights dimmed from the stage, capturing the essence of the song.

“Eventually, I will take off these heels and we will rock it out,” she said, and immediately broke into yet another moving ballad, “Daddy’s Girl.” “I’m free. Yay. Cheers everybody,” Tiffany said, as she finally was able to get out of her heels.

She had the audience clapping along with her on “Cry,” where she was accompanied by shakers and acoustic guitar. She revealed that she has been in the music industry for the past 28 years, and she continues to grow as a songwriter and producer each day. She loves her fans and dedicated her latest single “Right Here” to them. She is proud of the fact that she sings even better in her live shows, though her albums are all terrific.

“Fall Again” was one of the more “downer” moments of her set, while “Love You Good” had a Cajun vibe to it, especially since she is a fan of vampires, and it showed off her sassy side.

One of the first songs she ever wrote was “Winter’s Over” and she was able to dust off that tune and gave it a fresh touch. She noted that her fans and Debbie Gibson’s fans share the same fan-base, and Tiffany acknowledged that they are both friends, while she is “crazier” than Gibson.

“Here is My Heart,” penned by Diane Warren, was a dedication to the late Ryan White, and she nailed the vocal, which earned her a standing ovation, as red lights graced the stage. She was proud to have recorded the song and to have filmed its music video in France.

“I have a lot of ballads,” she said. “I love sad and heartbreak songs,” she added, prior to picking up the pace with the upbeat and rocking “I Saw Him Standing There,” where blue lights dimmed from the stage, as Tiffany played the tambourine.

“Hold an Old Friend’s Hand” was soothing and heartwarming, as if Tiffany were singing a lullaby. She had the fans clapping along on “Open My Eyes,” where she was accompanied by percussion and shakers. After expressing her love for her fans and for thanking them for coming out to see her, she went on to belt out her chart-topping ballad “Could’ve Been,” where midway through the song, she suffered technical difficulties, where her microphone malfunctioned, yet she decided to do it over and went into the audience, which was well-received by all.

For her final performance, she brought out keyboard player “Sky” and percussionist Mike Maenza from the 80’s cover band Jessie’s Girl, and they all delivered an empowering version of her signature tune, “I Think We’re Alone Now,” which Tiffany blew out of the park.

The Verdict

Overall, Tiffany was amazing at Gramercy Theatre in New York City thanks to her powerhouse vocals. She displayed a tremendous amount of talent and charisma as she performed new songs from her latest studio album, as well as her classics. Her band members and surprise guests from Jessie’s Girl were all superb. Tiffany’s live show in New York earned five out of five stars.
