Patti LaBelle

Patti LaBelle

PATTI LABELLE IN CONCERT:Legendary R&B belter Patti LaBelle came of age at a time when the term "diva" wasn't used loosely — as a tireless performer and industry veteran, Ms. LaBelle earned her diva designation with hard work and pure, raw talent. Beloved by fans for her fiery live performances and sassy wit, Patti proved she was still in top form on her 2012/13 50th Anniversary Tour, consistently bringing down the house with electrifying renditions of classics like "Lady Marmalade" and "New Attitude." An indefatigable touring presence, Patti serves up more diva realness in 2014 with several highly anticipated appearances.

When you say Patti Labelle, you visualize glamour, volume, and peak performance. She was all of those things. As a longtime fan of Ms. Patti, I recognized that she may not have been feeling her best ( in spite of the 3 1/2 pumps that needed a few more walks around the Bowl to get broken in), she gave all that she had, 100%. In comparison to other performances that I have had the privilege of attending, Patti was great then and has only gotten better with each performance.

Even though Patti was physically cold her performance was totally HOT! Her voice is awesome - - so clear with amazing range. She did many of her songs, but you still wanted more. We could have listened to her for hours and hours.

Lackluster and not typical energetic Patti performance. She did not perform the majority of time and she seemed sad. She continually complained of being cold which should not have made a difference in her performance because she knew what weather to expect. Maybe cooler for California but Patti is from "for real" cold weather and Cali is not that. Her opening act and back-up singers performed better than she did. I am a long time Patti fan and will buy a ticket to see her in the future. Everyone can have a bad performance. I sent a prayer out to her in hopes she can overcome her current sadness. Patti, I love you and always will!!!!

Her witty banter with the audience ("don't get it twisted - I'm so cold") cracked us up and her vocals, you wouldn't think a day has gone by since her first live performance. We went with four girlfriends and had a BLAST!

LaBelle was in full voice. She seemingly hit and held notes with ease. However, like any aging performer, she picked her spots. Worst of all, she sang the first verse of many hit songs then went straight to the bridge or the closing. Her backup singers sang the choruses. Patti was fun and played the diva to the delight of fans, but singing half a song all night and then not having an encore made me wonder whether the ticket price was worth it.

This was a very poor event. Pattie was not herself. She seemed a bit depressed speaking of her age, divorce, diabetes, her feet and that it was cold. I just exspected a little more than that and I could hear the audience same sentiments. She was doing absolutely nothing. The band that came out before her had the audience roaring more than she did, she was not even close. I hope she gets it together because one could tell that something was wrong. But when one spend their money and expected some satisfaction it could be a little dissapointing when that is not attain. The venue was very nice, first time there. God bless and keep you Pattie but I think thats it for me, I will not be seeing you again.

Patti Labelle was very cold last night. She didn't let the crowd forget it either. Whoever was in charge of her wardrobe should be fired. She came out at the Hollywood Bowl in a dress and had a short haircut. It was in the low 60's and even all the lights couldn't keep her warm. A really nice outfit with pants and one of her big hats would have done the trick. I'm sure she would have put on a better, more lively show if she were comfortable. The woman can sing though! Except for forgetting the words to "Over The Rainbow" she sounded great.

I was really looking forward to seeing Ms. Labelle in lie concert having watched her many, many times over the years. It seemed like great timing where I could also celebrate my wife's birthday. Patti came onstage and immediately complained about the cold, got a shawl put on her and soon added pants and what looked like tennis shoes. Rather than kicking some energy into her song selection, she put on gloves and continued to complain about the cold. Perhaps she had a cold, but this was not the show woman I had grown to love and enjoy. She appeared to walk through the concert letting her backup group take more center stage and do more of the real singing. At moments she was there and then gone again.

Patti never connected to the audience, her warm up act received the only standing ovation of the night. Patti was not strong at all, forgot her words, seemed lost on stage. she still hits some great notes but not worth seeing again.

I've seen Patti previously and this was easily her weakest performance. Following her opening number she claimed that she was cold and over the course of the concert she put on additional layers of clothing. Her energy level was nowhere near her normal level (perhaps she was not feeling well) and she she did not consistently provide the vocal fireworks that are her signature. I would go to see her perform again because she is one of my favorites, but overall her performance tonight was disappointing. Mike Farris & the Roseland Rhythm Revue were a pleasant surprise and I will go out to purchase his album.

The concert was fun and her opening act was great but when it was time for Patti to come on stage, she came out looking as gorgeous as ever but she also was hunched over and shivering. She told us she was "freezing" and seemed to have a very difficult time getting into her music. She was a little reserved at first, just because she was so cold and it almost seemed like a joke at first. But then she needed her scarf, her gloves, some flat shoes and she put on some pants under her dress. That seemed to help some but she didn't really seem very comfortable until the very end of the concert. She belted out "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and was awesome but then it was over. The house lights came on, there were no encores, and we were instructed to leave. Patti started at 9:00 and the show was over at 10:15; that was disappointing. Don't get me wrong, I still love Patti but this show did not compare to the concert I saw at a church in South Central L.A. a few years ago.

pros: parking is good, the hollywood bowl is an awesome venue, patti has one of the best voices ever Cons: after concert to get out of parking lot was very disorganized, patti was only on stage for about an hr and she was talking and changing shoes and finding a jacket for at least 20 mins and sung i swear less then 10 songs.. not really worth the money

I am an avid fan of Ms Labelle but I was disappointed in her overall performance and the show last night. I do not know if it was the cold weather (god forbid she damage her voice) or the overly excerpted renditions of songs but the concert lacked Ms Labelle's usual enthusiasm and energy. I wish she would have sang more and did not give her backup singers and audience participation such a prominent role in the show. I believe that Ms Labelle is a rare artist (Diva) with exceptional talents and I would hope that "weather permitting" her next concert would be reminiscent of the "Patti" her loyal devoted fans know and love. Sincerely, PHNX

Patti Labelle's voice is getting better with age. As most divas her age strain for notes in the higher ranges, Patti soars with ease. Her in-between patter makes you laugh because it's so unpretentious and there's a certain amount of fumbling and mumbling. Especially last night because she was so cold, bless her, here in our not-so-warm Southern California. Finally someone got her some gloves and slacks to wear under her dress so I could relax and not worry that she was going to keel over from her shivering.

I expected "the full Patti" (the shoe-kickin-off, emotional, singin-her-butt-off Patti we've come to know and love), and I didn't get it. I understand that it's hard to sing outdoors when it's cold, but I thought she would give us at least one or two real Patti Labelle moments. SIGH :^(

not the Patti I signed on for. I understand it was a bit colder last night than may be normal for L. A., but, we were all cold. Patti made so much of the cool weather, (i.e.) the wardrobe change and all. It took away from her performance. I have a few of Patti's dvd performances, they are great!!! (5 stars and more). I was even looking at one before the show began, and at least expected half of that performance, what a disappointment. I can respect that she may not have been feeling well, however, I would have preferred her to cancel than do the show as it was last night. I still love me some Patti Labelle, but would have rather spent the money we (my wife, her birthday gift) spent on her doing a theater show, in Vegas, indoors, instead.

Patti complained too much about the cold and in my opinion coasted through the show. The show lacked pizzaz, the songs too short, and the band was a very basic six piece unit plus three backup singers. This being my first Patti concert - I was unimpressed. I am not sure if my jaded review was somewhat colored by the fact that a few weeks ago I saw Aretha at the same venue with a 42 piece band and a show that blew me away. However, Patti looked excellent with impeccable makeup and hair.

i have been seeing patti labelle for over 10yrs and every show is amazing. however, last night at the hollywood bowl was extremely disappointing. she hardly sang and was just too cold on stage (shivering, running off stage in the middle of songs to add more layers of clothes), etc. etc. it was not the patti i have come to know and love. we all have bad nights and this was certainly one of them. i would see patti again, but NOT at the hollywood bowl as it was too cold for her.

This lady still has great pipes but it was something else to see her outfits, she walked out with her 4in high heels and couldn't walk then changed heels and still couldn't walk. She even tried to put on a pair of pants on stage.

Ms. Patti is still a phenomenal performer. I got goosebumps on top of my already existing goosebumps from the cold. Which brings me to my disappointment that I don't think Ms. Patti had her best performance. Her difference to the weather and temperature really affected her show. Her voice was a blaze but her dancing and action were a little frigid. I was surprised at the short performance. I couldn't believe there was no encore. I was expecting to sleep at the bowl with Patti singing me to sleep.

I went to this concert thinking I only knew 1 big hit that I used to sing even though I did not know the words Lady Marmalade but was SHOCKED at this performers many hits that duh I knew all of them just not that she was behind them all and as she said in jest "don't get it twisted" She was a delight on stage. And those high notes were a definate high for the audience. Great timing and wonderful backup singers. I loved that she went back and sang backup for her soul sista of 15 years who did this beautiful people song. :) A must see. I did however get distracted by all they backstage stuff. The bowl needs to tell the crew not to move about the sides of the bowl. It is distracting.

Patii gave a luke warm performance she complained about the weather, the shoes, and being cold didnt know the full name of the group before her, her voice was off key on a few numbers and all of us in the row felt like she did not want to be there

Was she sick or drunk? She didn't finish a song and forgot words. Her backup covered for ger. We paid to see Labelle not her backups. Ripoff.

The night was not all that I expected. I expected Ms Patti to be off the hook. It was not her usual show. I have seen her several times and was always blown away by her performance. Maybe the weather was just too cold for her. The show was good. I just expected more from her.

Listening to Patti Labelle Live was like listening to her on a CD. Her voice is still amazing, even after 54 years of singing. I would see her over and over again! Definitely try to get front row seats.. it s so worth it!!

Ms. Patti was relaxed and clearly enjoyed herself. There were a couple of times in the show where you could tell she was a little fatigued, but let's be real, she is 73! Her interaction with the audience was genuine and fun, and she allowed her band and back up singers to shine. Simply incredible!
