Summary: Bareilles’ tour in support of Amidst the Chaos is her first playing mostly arenas. She’s sold out places like Madison Square Garden.
The run of songs showcased a wide spectrum of Bareilles’ talents as well as that of her singers. “Soft Place to Land” and “You Matter to Me” were followed up by the bouncy “Bad Idea.” Stunning ballad, “She Used to Mine,” left the room so silent that you could hear a pin drop. And then the crowd gave her an extended standing ovation.
