I'm hearing and reading the phase: "no sales, no concert". This could not be farther from the truth! The research I have done tells me that sales are quite good. If fact, I attended a packed State Theatre in New Brunswick n. j. on 7/8. The show was phenomenal. Natalie's energy was off the charts. It was like watching the Natalie of 25. Ok, so what happened? Here is my take. When I first saw the July dates on her website it kind of took me back a bit. I thought how is she going to pull this off. Back to back, every other day, for the WHOLE month. She has not done that in years. So we were curious to see how her voice would hold up by the time our show rolled around. We may have been her 5th performance in seven days. As I said before her energy was outstanding and she was belting out her higher ranges beautifully. But we noticed that when she tried to sing in a softer tone, where the beauty of her voice shines and which makes Natalie the very best, she seemed to be struggling a bit. Interestingly, we attended her 3/22 show in Morristown nj, at a time when she was performing no more that two to three times in a MONTH. Her voice was impeccable. She just confirmed to me what she is; the best female voice of our time. In fact we found a couple you tube clips of the last two shows prior to the postponements and thought she's done. No sooner do we get an e-mail saying that our upcoming West Hampton Long Island show was postponed, as well as seven others. So, no sale,no concert? No, no. Natalie is an individual of integrity and honesty. She is not going to give her loyal fans half of her and then move on. So I would say to Natalie, get some rest, give your beautiful voice a break. Reschedule these event over time. Stick to one or two, at most, a week. We want to hear that beautiful, beautiful voice for many more years to come.
