Susan Boyle (Broward Center-Fort Lauderdale)
* Susan Boyle.
Personally, Jeff Eats isn’t impressed…
I definitely get the “rags to riches” story and the “princess kissing the frog” or whatever that one-was…but I just don’t care for the voice-so forth and so on.
Now with that in mind, loads of folks apparently “hear” it differently than Jeff Eats does-because the lady is set for a Broward Center show on Monday Night- November 3, 2014 at 7:30pm (as well as November dates in Melbourne, Clearwater and Jacksonville).
If you are one of those folks, Gold Star Events (Goldstar.com) is running a deal offering Broward Center -$65 tickets for $32.50.
Like I said, I don’t get what all the hoopla is about…if on the other hand you do, you now know what to do!
By the way, there is a Jeff Eats’ story- 8/26/14 about Gold Star Events that will give you some background on this discount -ticket operation.
From Goldstar’s site…
After performing for Simon Cowell, the Queen and the Pope, Susan Boyle sings for you. Instantly famous for her bravura performance on Britain’s Got Talent, Boyle achieved super-stardom when her debut album I Dreamed a Dream became the best-selling album in the history of the U.K. And the fairy tale has only continued for the humble Scot with a golden mezzo-soprano voice, who went on to sing for sold-out crowds around the world, release four more albums and receive two Grammy nods. Funny and charming in person, she now brings her formidable talent to the Broward Center’s Au-Rene Theater where she will be joined by the Florida Singing Sons Boychoir and the Girl Choir of South Florida. Experience Boyle live as she performs new album tracks and never-heard-before classics as part of her first headlining tour in the U.S.
I guess being a fat old maid paid off for the old bird.
I’m with Jeff, more hype than anything else.
Obesity paid off in the end.
If she wasn’t a great reality tv show character she wouldn’t be coming to Florida.
Being a loser for 50 years paid off for the lady.
On the same page.
Reality story sold the public.
Something wrong with this lady!
With 1/2 price discount tickets guess she isn’t as popular as the promoter originally thought.
Hey Jeff back off on Susan Boyle she is a nice person. And she can sing. Don’t be so mean.
Boyle called in sick.
Show cancelled on 11/3.
Betcha Jeff was right, no too much demand for this show.
After hearing about the fact that Susan Boyle needs more rest days after just performing for six minutes in the past four days, I really am starting to wonder if maybe she should just go on home to Edinburgh and call it a career. Oh, I think she can record some albums because they can do it on her time and work around her needs, but it’s pretty obvious that this is someone who doesn’t need to be performing full-time or even once a year.
The latest incident allegedly involved Susan standing on her balcony at a hotel and crying and screaming for her cat all night and how she needed her cat. The tour then promptly decided she should have the next few nights off. I think she should just call it off for good. I also start to wonder about reports that Simon Cowell is trying to set her up for a Las Vegas run of shows and whether he is really that greedy or if the reports are false. If she does a series of shows in Las Vegas, it will push her off the edge. She can’t do them. There is absolutely no way. They would require at least 60 minutes of singing and probably closer to 90 and she would have to do it several times a week. It would be a disaster.
I know she has a record deal. Great. Go home and record some music once or twice a month and just keep releasing album after album. She would get to sing and I don’t have to worry about her health everyday and what is going to happen to her.
Boyle is a nut job.
She is a creation of reality tv.
She was crazy before she was discovered.
She is still nuts.
Jeff, right on the money.
