Michael Bublé – “Crazy Love” Tour
Adelaide - Entertainment Centre
Monday, 28th February

What a fantastic night! Naturally 7 were great, even better than their last performance in Adelaide. They really got the crowd going with their jump routine. The electric guitar acapella was out of this world. How can ones voice make such a sound? Phenomenal! They are a true talent and were more than happy to interact with the audience after the show.
And now to the main performance, the one and only Michael Buble. What an entertainer. A true crowd pleaser. He made a grand entrance with "Cry Me A River". He also took the time to sign poster made by audience members, before performing more of his popular hits from his Crazy Love CD. He worked the audience on all levels, performing in the middle of the Arena to please those in the stands. Naturally 7 returned to show case their talents before Michael made his way through the crowd to the main stage. And what about that voice! It was like I was listening to his CD, sometimes even better!! The choice of songs were great. Starting with the ever popular Van Morrison hits before breaking out with his own hits of "Haven't Met You Yet" & "Hollywood" which really got the crowd to their feet.
He really got the audiences attention with his sense of humour. He has a great way of introducing his band and it looks like they all enjoy each others company. I was in stitches!!
The stage lighting and huge screens were fantastic, giving you a perfect view every time. He is a true performer, show casing not only his singing talents, but his personal interactions with each and every one of you. At times you feel like he's just singing to you. He expressed his childhood idols including the likes of Michael Jackson and showed his emotional side by admitting that he "misses him" before breaking out with a short version of "Man in the Mirror" and "Billie Jean". He also showed his love for the late 80's with a mention of Ferris Bueller, before singing "Twist & Shout" Ferris Beuller style.
But how could the night end...he still had so much to perform and came back for an encore to complete the night with "Feeling Good", "Me & Mrs Jones" and the ultimate finale of "Song for You" and he once again show cased his talent of singing without a microphone. He showed his true appreciation to his audience and promised to be back again.
So what more can you ask for in a performer. There were people there from the ages of 8 to 80. Who can entertain people these days to such a broad age group? Who else but Michael Buble.....Can't wait to see him again and again and again!!
