  1. First concert review from Mexico

    It was a blessing that she came to this festival and not to Mexico City, where everybody plays, because I probably wouldn't have gone. 3 months ago I practically knew nothing about her and now I'm hooked! Plus, this festival usually allows main acts to perform no more than 10 songs, so I don't think I missed that much. Thanks for the welcome words, I'll start participating in this wonderful forum of the wonderful Regi.
  2. First concert review from Mexico

    I attended this concert, it's like 45mins away from home. As you can see at the video of the concert start, she was so adorable. I didn't know a lot about her until I found out she was coming to the festival. I YouTube'd her and boom, instant click. I don't know if I've been affected by plastic pop culture, but I thought she was unknown around here, so when one of the openers of the festival concert said "Are you guys ready for the Pet Shop Boys?" the audience clapped and screamed; but when she said "And are you ready for Regina Spektor?", and the audience went nuts, I couldn't believe it. That singer left the stage, and it was around 15 minutes of nervousism on who was going to be the first act. I always thought Regina would be the first, since the best-known were the PSB, but after the audience reaction, I had my doubts. So, then, the drums unveiled a Regina Spektor logo and we all got really excited, but it wasn't until 3 or 4 people carried the piano to the middle of the stage that I understood what was about to experience. Then goes the video of the beginning of the concert. The setlist I experienced was: Ain't No Cover, The Calculation, On the Radio, Small Town Moon, Patron Saint, How, All the Rowboats and Blue Lips. When Blue Lips started, I noticed several people in the audience and their worried faces looking back, I turned to my left-back and see the not-to-far away huge flames. Everybody started wondering what was going on, something clearly not normal. Some people started to leave and I was afraid it would cause panick. The song ends, she says that the Tajin pyramids were beautiful, and proceeds to introduce Only Son. Someone backstage apparently told her what was going on, dropped the mic and left. Crowd panicks. I hated when I heard a woman screaming "We all have to leave!! The whole place is going to explode!" Of course not helping at all. Eventually, some of the friends I went with told me they wanted to leave, then we heard the exits were blocked for security or something (I guess someone thought the fire had been on purpose), but in a couple minutes we learned the exits had been opened, we left, and on our way we saw the huge flame, it was honestly pretty cool. Intense, but cool. Police, firemen, ambulances started to arrive and a lot of people left, so we did. When I got home I saw the news and they said the fire had been controlled and the concert had continued. I don't know how many songs I missed, but the fact that I saw her live is something I'll never forget. I've attached a pic of Regina and the screen capturing the audience. This is my first post, by the way.
